GILBERT GOTTFRIED’s five best Howard Stern Show Appearances

A couple of years ago, Gilbert got in trouble for making jokes on his Twitter feed (https://twitter.com/realgilbert) about the tsunami that hit Japan. And whatever you think about

 maybe the timing of that joke, long-time fans of Gilbert, and especially of his many classic appearances on the Howard Stern radio show, know that treading the fine line of political correctness has never been the man’s forté. In fact, that’s one of the reasons we’re so excited to have Gilbert on TYF! There’s nothing like a live show where literally anything can happen; and in that spirit, we offer Gilbert’s five best appearances on the old Stern Show.

Just a note: when I say these tread the line of good taste, I mean they trample on it like a herd of elephants and destroy it. You have been warned:

GILBERT GOTTFRIED VS. ABE HIRSCHFELD
(see link above)

Abe Hirschfeld (not to be confused with Al Hirschfeld of celebrity caricature/Broadway theatre fame) was a real NYC character; an immigrant who made millions developing parking lots in Manhattan. His NY Times obituary provides some of the highlights of his public career, including his two-week term as publisher of the New York Post and his offer of one million dollars to Paula Jones to get her to drop her sex harassment suit against Bill Clinton.

When he was released from prison after attempting to hire a hitman to rub out his business partner, he called into the Stern show while Gilbert (“I can’t believe that they lock people up for murder!”) is sitting in. The result is gold.

GILBERT GOTTFRIED VS. JERRY SEINFELD’S ANSWERING MACHINE
http://www.youtube.com/e/XXa-f7uI8BE?autoplay=1

On his recent appearance on WTF with Marc Maron (www.wtfpod.com/podcast/episodes/episode_320_-_gilbert_gottfried), Gilbert discussed his early days in standup, and how he would spend 20 minutes just doing impressions of the (then obscure) other comedians at the club. One of the impressions he did was of Jerry Seinfeld, and he described how it would drive Seinfeld crazy.

When Jerry Seinfeld cancelled on the Stern show without warning, they call and have the show on his answering machine. Gilbert’s “Jerry Seinfeld Jr.” impression gets a lot of work here.

GILBERT GOTTFRIED VS. AMY HECKERLING’S BABYSITTER
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bmqFSmNoU40

Gilbert went to have dinner with Amy Heckerling (director of Fast Times at Ridgemont High and Clueless) and her babysitter picked him up and gave him a ride, and long story short, offended the woman so badly (with his endless Holocaust jokes) that she called into the Stern show for years to yell at him. Here’s her first appearance, where she calls into the show, and then the show call Gilbert to wake him up.

GILBERT GOTTFRIED & SAM KINISON VS. THE BOUNDS OF GOOD TASTE
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aP0cOsN41es

Gilbert and Kinison sit in on the news, and discuss the stories of the day… which includes Ryan White’s funeral.

GILBERT GOTTFRIED VS. KRAFT FOODS
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m_OFvhY1QcQ

Gilbert discusses getting fired from a lucrative Miracle Whip commercial gig after a previous appearance on the Howard Stern show.

In this week’s issue of the TYF! podcast, we speak to comedian/musician Rob Paravonian about his hugely popular Pachelbel Rant video on Youtube, and how he found his home in the crazy, anything-goes performance art scene of Manhattan’s Lower East Side in the 1990s.

In addition, he sings a couple of songs, including one from his new album, Keep Your Jazz Hand Strong. In addition, he’ll show us how combining comedy with a guitar makes beautiful women magically appear out of thin air. And I mean, literally. You’ll hear it.

Plus, Maggie Serota tells a story about how looking for an apartment on Craig’s List, surprisingly leads to hearing from pervy creeps.
