A chat with comedian Gilbert Gottfried

By | December 23rd, 2011 | 1 Comment

Ahead of his performance at the Midtown lounge Ricochet on Monday night, comedian and actor Gilbert Gottfried took a few minutes to chat with Beached Miami’s Robby Campbell. The sonorous voice of the Aflac duck before losing the gig due to a series of controversial Twitter postings about the Japanese tsunami — e.g., “What do Japanese Jews like to eat? Hebrew National Tsunami” — Gottfried shared his reaction to the death of Kim Jong-Il, reminisced about his role as Iago in the Aladdin movies, and griped about the politics that kept Saved By The Bell: Wedding In Las Vegas from winning an Oscar.

We have a few pairs of tickets to give away to Gottfried’s Ricochet performance on Monday night. To enter to win, @mention Beached Miami on Facebook with a link to this post. We will announce the winners on Sunday afternoon. Until then, heeeeeeeere’s Gilbert.
