Critically Acclaimed Comedian, Actor Gilbert Gottfried

I’m very excited to write about the upcoming comedy shows in Philadelphia, March 10 through the 12th. Critically acclaimed comedian, writer, and actor, Gilbert Gottfried will be performing five shows at Helium Comedy Club.

Gilbert began his stand-up career in New York, where he was discovered by producers of Saturday Night Live and casted for their 1980-1981 season. Later, he moved on to become an actor and voice actor for numerous TV programs and films such as Beverly Hills Cop 2 , Dr. Dolittle , The Aristocrats , as well as multiple appearances on Comedy Central, including his own Comedy Central Presents: and The Comedy Central Roasts of Bob Saget, Joan Rivers, and David Hasselhoff.

Some of you who aren’t very familiar with Gilbert’s comedy may be asking “Isn’t he that guy that does the Parrot’s voice on Aladdin and a bunch of other children’s cartoons?” My response is that I can assure you that Gilbert’s material is FAR from Disney’s ethical standards and that he’s considered to be a “Comic’s Comic”. So if you’re looking for a comedy show to bring the kids to, you may want to sit this one out, unless your kids want to hear the Parrot from Aladdin tell an “Aristocrats” joke (google it if you don’t know what I’m talking about).
