Description

A stand-up comic since he was 15 years old, Gilbert Gottfried has nearly 150 acting credits on his resume. But while audiences may think they have Gottfried pegged—the brash persona, the iconic voice that’s given life to characters from Iago in “Aladdin” to the Aflac duck—director Neil Berkeley reveals an entirely different side of the famous comedian, exploring Gottfried’s most surprising role to date: that of devoted family man. The notoriously private comedian opens up about unexpectedly marrying and having children after age 50, and offers new insight into the highs and lows of one of Hollywood’s longest-running careers (like a series of Tweets that got him fired from his Aflac gig). A rare and surprising treat for fans, and a engrossing introduction to a comic legend for the uninitiated, “Gilbert” is an entertaining, and highly profane, look at one of comedy’s most complicated and magnetic figures.
