Gilbert Gottfried Dies at 67 - How to Stream the Comedian’s Best Work

Ben Bowman

The name “Gilbert Gottfried” probably triggers a very specific part of your brain - the one that conjures up that voice - that awful, yet beautiful voice. Gottfried exaggerated that voice to great effect in his work, and it often overshadowed the words he was speaking. But he was a comedian’s comedian - a man willing to push his audience just to get laughs from his pals backstage.

Gottfried famously got in trouble for his irreverent humor, which made him a hit in places like the Friars Club, but less popular in middle America.

If you’d like to remember his work, we’ve compiled some of his best pieces. And we assume he’d forgive you if you need to turn the volume down.
