RIP to a comedy legend!

It is a very rare occurrence, but every now and then, I am lucky enough to interview someone that I am a huge fan of, and back in April of 2019, prior to a stand-up appearance in Bangor, we were fortunate enough to speak to one of the funniest comedians of all-time, the great Gilbert Gottfried.

Gilbert passed away on Tuesday, after a lengthy battle with recurrent ventricular tachycardia due to myotonic dystrophy type II. A brutally funny man, he will be missed.

We covered a bunch of topics during our brief time with him, but one of my favorite parts of the interview was when Gilbert did his impression of Jerry Seinfeld, and I of course I had to throw mine in as well. I can also say that when I went to see his show later that evening, I can't remember the last time I laughed that hard. To say much of his act was politically incorrect would be a huge understatement. Also, I was lucky enough to have a picture with him as well...or near him at least.

His career resume is a truly impressive one, check out this list of credits:
