Aubrey Plaza, 'Food Network Star'To make it into the final four, the remaining contestants had to make it through a comedy round on 'Food Network Star' (Sun., 9PM ET on Food). They didn't have to tell jokes, even though that's what Jeff used to do for a living. He even gave the celebrity comedians a sampling of his comedy stylings.

"I would give you a cooking show just to make sure you never did stand-up again," Gilbert Gottfried told him after a joke fell very flat with the panel.

Even though his comedy didn't go over well, they did like his Italian roast beef sandwich, and his presence. When asked if they'd watch a cooking show about sandwiches, Louie Anderson said, "I'd watch him."

Gilbert Gottfried on 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon'Controversial comedian and actor Gilbert Gottfried stopped by 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC) and found himself on the receiving end of a joke.

Jimmy Fallon revealed that for his first-ever appearance on 'Saturday Night Live' he had to impersonate Gottfried taking part in an episode of 'Hollywood Squares' that was supposedly being taped during an earthquake.

In the sketch, the celebrity contestants, true pros that they are, continue to play the game despite horrific injuries and falling masonry.

Gottfried said Fallon's impression was so accurate that he saw the show on a screen as he was walking through Times Square in New York City, "and I thought, 'Is that me? I don't own that jacket!'"

Gilbert Gottfried Cozies Up With Wendy Williams (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Apr 27th 2011 3:35PM
Gilbert Gottfried on 'The Wendy Williams Show'Gilbert Gottfried is a short person. Wendy Williams is a tall person. That particular combination made for a somewhat awkward introduction today on 'The Wendy Williams Show' (weekdays, syndicated), although Gottfried didn't seem to mind. His head comes up to Williams' chest, which is where Gottfried rested himself contentedly after a nice warm hug.

"I could stay here all week," said Gottfried, eyes closed, cheek pressed to Williams' breasts. "Can we just do the interview like this?" Williams noted that it was an odd thing about being tall, that she sees the world in a totally different way. "I have no problem with it," said Gottfried.

He had no problem, that is, until he finally came up for air, sat down on the couch and yelled, "Hey! You're not Oprah!" He was roughly the same height standing as Williams was sitting.

"If the man does all those things, the polite thing for the woman to do is to bang him," he she concluded.

Gilbrt GottfriedControversial comedian and actor Gilbert Gottfried has been fired from his longtime job as the voice of the Aflac Duck in TV commercials.

Gilbert Gottfried on ''Til Death'Gilbert Gottfried is perhaps best known as "that comedian with the annoying voice." On the most recent episode of ''Til Death' (Sun., 7PM ET on Fox), Gottfried uses that voice to excellent effect. He barges into Joy's (Joely Fisher's) home, and begins a conversation involving breast size and, well, male member size. Good stuff!

And now, a comedy about TV stardom, drugs, porn, and a dog licking David Faustino's butt crack - VIDEO

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 19th 2009 12:03PM
Star-vingWhat happens if you're the former star of a hit TV show but the work isn't coming anymore? Well, there are plenty of bad options, but now you can make your own show on the web.

That's what former Married ... With Children star David Faustino has done with Star-ving, a new web show at Crackle.com. Episode 1 is up right now (and after the jump). It's not too long, and it's worth seeing. It's not the funniest thing, but kudos to everyone for going all out.

Faustino is pretty much playing a version of himself, and he's trying to get work in an industry that seems to have forgotten him. He goes to former co-star Ed O'Neil (nice of him to do a cameo here, and he's really funny) for help, and O'Neil pretty much tells him he's out of his f*****g mind. The show also co-stars former Parker Lewis Can't Lose star Corin Nemec. Episode 2 features Gilbert Gottfried, and future eps will feature Christina Applegate, Katey Segal, Ed Asner, and the cast of Growing Pains.

This is NSFW. It features swearing, references to drugs and suicide, and a disturbing scene of a German Shepherd licking Faustino's rear end.

Bob Saget + sex jokes about the Olsens = awkward

by Kona Gallagher, posted Aug 6th 2008 10:01AM
bob saget roastBob Saget's Comedy Central roast was filmed Sunday night, and the typically raunchy affair may have crossed the line a little bit. Despite being a famously foul-mouthed comedian himself, Saget is best known for playing warm and fuzzy Danny Tanner on Full House. It was because of this famous role that most of the jokes centered on two of his diminutive co-stars: Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.

Whether it was Gilbert Gottfried suggesting that Saget seduced the twins with chocolate milkshakes or Uncle Jesse himself, John Stamos, saying things like, "The whole time Bob and I were doing Full House, he was also hosting America's Funniest Home Videos. His entire job consisted of saying 'Take a look at this' which is what he used to say to Mary Kate in her dressing room," the subject of inappropriate relations with children was apparently a high source of comedy.

Saved By The Bell -- DVD Review

by Brett Love, posted Aug 8th 2007 9:55AM
Saved By The Bell DVDIt's always interesting going back to see something that you were once fond of again. Sometimes they hold up, and sometimes you are left shaking your head wondering what could have been in the air in 1982 that made you like this pile of crap. That's how I headed into the new Saved By The Bell double feature DVD, which includes "Wedding in Las Vegas" and "Hawaiian Style."

Somewhere along the lines Saved By The Bell ended up rerunning on cable at the perfect time to fit into my daily routine, and I got in the habit of watching it regularly. I'm not positive that I have seen every last episode, but I know I'm pretty close. So, you could say I was a fan of the show. That, or I really should have popped for the more expensive cable plan all those years ago.

Last Comic Standing: A roast and an ejection

by Joel Keller, posted Jul 11th 2006 11:31PM
Last Comic Standing(S04E06) One thing you can say about Season Four of Last Comic Standing is that it's full of surprises. The comics may not be all that funny, the editing may be choppy, the preliminary selections of comics may have been suspicious, and Anthony Clark may look like he's embalmed. But you can't deny that the comics being eliminated aren't the ones anyone expected to go so early. Unfortunately, the by-product of these surprises is a set of finalists (the set of comics that will perform live and have the viewing audience vote by phone, text, and web) that is a pretty uncompelling set of personalities and, for the most part, not very funny.
