Gilbert Gottfried’s grating and squawky voice is unforgettable and somehow endearing, if you can tolerate it. The voice actor for Aladdin‘s Iago the macaw and formerly the Aflac insurance duck is known to ruffle feathers with his risqué and often dark comedic stylings. The cringe-inducing comedian comes to the Spokane Comedy Club for two sets on one night only, on April Fool’s Day (but not a joke). Gottfried’s material runs the gamut regarding showbiz and his life as a comic for nearly 50 years. Much of Gottfried’s time now is devoted to his long-running Gilbert Gottfried’s Amazing Colossal Podcast, which focuses on Old Hollywood and showbiz interviews with memorable character actors and former child stars.
