Comedian and actor Gilbert Gottfried, a man Stephen King once referred to as "a national treasure," sits down in his own New York City apartment (you expected him to leave the couch?) with the Hollywood legends and behind-the-scenes talents who shaped his childhood and influenced his comedy. Joined by co-host and fellow showbiz obsessive Frank Santopadre, Gilbert talks to comics, actors, singers, voice artists, talk show hosts, writers, show runners and other eyewitnesses to Hollywood history, including Dick Cavett, Henry Winkler, David Steinberg, Weird Al Yankovic, Billy West, Barbara Feldon, Paul Shaffer, Bob Saget, Micky Dolenz and MANY more, as they share fond memories and personal anecdotes of show business then and now (but mostly then).
