At the young age of 15, Gilbert Gottfried began doing stand-up at
open mike nights in New York City, after a few short years, became known
around town as “the comedian’s comedian.” After spending several years
mastering the art of stand-up comedy, producers of the legendary NBC
late night comedy show Saturday Night Live became aware of Gottfried
and, in 1980, hired him as a cast member. It wasn’t until a few years
later when his true notoriety would begin when MTV hired him for a
series of improvised and hilarious promos for the newly formed channel.
This led to several television appearances on “The Cosby Show” and “Late
Night with David Letterman.”

led to roles in film. Most notable was his improvised scene as business
manager Sidney Bernstein in the hit sequel “Beverly Hills Cop II,” for
which the New York Daily News said, “Gilbert Gottfried steals the
picture with a single scene.” Aside from his glowing reputation in
comedy clubs, Gottfried began to gain a reputation as the king of quirky
roles in both movies and television. He appeared in such movies as
“Problem Child,” “Problem Child II,” “Look Who’s Talking II” and “The
Adventures of Ford Fairlane.” He was also the host of the very popular
late night movie series “USA Up All Night.”
After his stellar
performance as the wise cracking parrot, IAGO, in the Disney classic
“Aladdin,” Gottfried became one of the most recognizable voiceover
talents, lending his voice to several commercials, cartoons and movies,
including the frustrated duck in the AFLAC Insurance commercials.

“Cyberchase.” His signature voice can also be heard on the Comedy
Central series, “The Annoying Orange, the voice of the horse on “Family

homework assignment ever!”
