What hasn’t Gilbert Gottfried done? He was a cast member on Saturday Night Live. He’s been a character actor and a game show personality and a podcast host. But it’s his trademark voice — somehow raspy and squeaky at the same time — that made Gottfried instantly recognizable, and it has translated into countless voiceover gigs, including stints as the parrot Iago in the Aladdin movies and the Aflac duck. But long before he found crossover fame — and before he developed that screeching delivery — Gottfried was a stand-up comedian, and you might be struck by how edgy and subversive and downright funny his material is. He’s no mere cartoon character.
