A detailed look into the life of Gilbert Gottfried
26 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

I've been a fan of Gilbert Gottfried ever since seeing the Problem Child movies as a kid and one of his early (and few) stand-up specials. Gilbert also made what seemed like countless cameos in movies all throughout the 80's and 90's and even had a brief stint as part of the Saturday Night Live cast. In the 2000's he was was still famous mostly for his role as the Aflac mascot (the duck) and was a frequent guest- roaster. Presently, he is still a touring comedian and has a very well received and informative podcast, in which he and his co-host, chat with Hollywood legends, such as Dick Van Dyke, Dick Cavett and all sorts of other Dicks..

Chances are, if you're reading this, you already know Gilbert in some aspect, maybe for his infamous telling of the Aristocrats joke, his infamous firing for his tweets, or some other infamy surrounding the prolific comedian.. What you most likely don't know, is that Gilbert is a husband, a father, a brother and son. The squinting eyed, harsh voiced, foul mouthed comedian is a human being, but barely.

Sometimes Gilbert comes off more as an alien who crash landed on Earth during puberty and was never quite able to blend in amongst actual humans. This documentary shows you the REAL Gilbert Gottfried and makes a fine attempt at explaining who he is and why he is... It's interesting, funny and heart warming. If you've ever asked yourself "I wonder who would ever have sex with that Jewish guy who squints and yells a lot" this movie is for you.
