  The Legendary
Gilbert Gottfried

At the young age of 15, Gilbert Gottfried began doing stand-up at open mike nights in New York City, after a few short years, became known around town as “the comedian’s comedian.” After spending several years mastering the art of stand-up comedy, producers of the legendary NBC late night comedy show Saturday Night Live became aware of Gottfried and, in 1980, hired him as a cast member. It wasn’t until a few years later when his true notoriety would begin when MTV hired him for a series of improvised and hilarious promos for the newly formed channel. This led to several television appearances on The Cosby Show and Late Night with David Letterman.

Gottfried’s work in television soon led to roles in film. Most notable was his improvised scene as business manager Sidney Bernstein in the hit sequel Beverly Hills Cop II, for which the New York Daily News said, “Gilbert Gottfried steals the picture with a single scene.” Aside from his glowing reputation in comedy clubs, Gottfried began to gain a reputation as the king of quirky roles in both movies and television. He appeared in such movies as Problem Child, Problem Child II, Look Who’s Talking II and The Adventures of Ford Fairlane. He was also the host of the very popular late night movie series USA Up All Night.

After his stellar performance as the wise cracking parrot, IAGO, in the Disney classic Aladdin, Gottfried became one of the most recognizable voiceover talents, lending his voice to several commercials, cartoons and movies, including the frustrated duck in the AFLAC Insurance commercials. Gottfried also is the voice of DIGIT in the long running PBS Series Cyberchase. His signature voice can also be heard on the Comedy Central series, The Annoying Orange, the voice of the horse on Family Guy, Mr. Mxyzptlk in the new Lego Batman 3 – Beyond Gotham video game, and Abraham Lincoln in A Million Ways to Die in the West.

Gottfried has made numerous memorable appearances on Comedy Central Roasts and the Comedy Central series, The Burn with Jeff Ross. Gottfried’s Fifty Shades of Grey reading (College Humor) received over 5 million views on YouTube.  Gilbert has been a guest on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Show with Seth Meyers, @Midnight with Chris Hardwick and numerous appearances on The Howard Stern Show. He also has had a recurring role on Law and Order SVU as TARU tech Leo Gerber.

Gottfried appeared in the hit comedy documentary The Aristocrats, with Entertainment Weekly saying that “out of the 101 comedians who appear on screen, no one is funnier – or more disgusting – than Gilbert Gottfried.”  In addition, Gottfried, a classic movie lover, was a guest Programmer on TCM. He mock- complained to TCM host Robert Osborne that choosing only four films out of all those available was “the worst homework assignment ever!”

Gilbert Gottfried Dirty Jokes was released on both DVD and CD, featuring 50 non-stop minutes of Gottfried telling the funniest and filthiest jokes ever. The show was filmed live at the Gotham Comedy Club in New York City. Also featured on the DVD are some of the funniest bonus features ever, including wild stories, indignant ranting and celebrity impressions.  Rubber Balls and Liquor is Gilbert Gottfried’s hilarious first-ever book. Part memoir, part twisted social commentary, and part scratches on the bathroom wall. With this scathingly funny book of rants and musings, Gottfried sullies an entirely new medium with his dysfunctional worldview.

Oh, and did we mention the reality shows and podcast? Gilbert appeared on both ABC’s Celebrity Wife Swap, swapping with Alan Thicke, and NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice where Gilbert took his first trip into the boardroom and perhaps his last. And the podcast…Gilbert Gottfried’s Amazing Colossal Podcast! where Gilbert journeys back in time with some of the Hollywood icons, legends, and behind the scenes talent who shaped (warped?) his childhood and influenced his unique brand of comedy. He is joined each week by his co-host and late night phone friend, fellow showbiz fanatic, and Comedy Writer Frank Santopadre.

In 2017, Gilbert the documentary about Gilbert Gottfried premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival. Director Neil Berkeley’s Gilbert reveals an unexpected side to the iconic comedian. The film peeks behind the larger-than-life persona at a more personal story about growing up in Brooklyn and becoming a husband and father late in life. Gilbert premiers on Hulu, fall 2017.

As a famed comics comic, Gottfried puts aside political correctness for his live performance and fires an onslaught of jokes that know no boundaries.  Stephen King on Gilbert Gottfried: “More than a national treasure, he’s a secret weapon. If we had had Gilbert Gottfried in World War II, Hitler would have given up in 1942.  Gilbert, a lifelong resident of NYC is married with 2 children and has never had a drivers license.

     John Evans 

A few words from John Evans:

I started out like many great comedians, in Tulsa Oklahoma with an Andy Rooney impression and a dream. I moved to Minneapolis Mn., dropped the Andy Rooney impression, and in 2002 I performed at the Montreal Comedy Festival’s “new faces” show. A role in a film at the Sundance Film Festival soon followed.

While living in Los Angeles, I performed regularly at the Comedy and Magic Club, and the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre. I have had the unique pleasure of opening up for comedic legends George Carlin, Dave Chappelle, Mitch Hedberg and Lewis Black. I have recently done shows on the “Friends of Bob and Tom” tour and can be heard regularly on their syndicated radio show.

John Evans Television Credits Include: Last Comic Standing(semi-finalist 2008), Last Comic Standing NBC (2007), Live @ Gotham COMEDY CENTRAL (2007)

                         Derrick Knopsnyder                      

Derrick Knopsnyder officially made his start doing stand up comedy after his freshman year in college, at the age of 19, and he never looked back. Since then Derrick has become one of the fastest rising comedians in Pittsburgh, and is the youngest comedian to be a regular feature act at his home club, the Pittsburgh Improv.

Being a young comedian, Derrick uses his boyish charm and quick wit to connect with audiences all over, but it’s his awkwardness that keeps them laughing all through the night, making him a fan favorite wherever he takes the stage. In 2010, Derrick started out with a dream of being a stand up comic, and eight years later he’s living that dream. Since then he has had some success in the comedy industry, such as winning The Stand Up To Cancer Comedy Competition in Huntington WV, and was most recently named a finalist at the Cleveland Comedy Festival.

While Derrick has been performing stand up, he also completed his bachelor’s degree in Professional Golf Management, and a master’s degree in science. Balancing school and comedy was a difficult process, however, he was able to do so successfully earning dean’s list every semester, and performing stand up at clubs and colleges all over the east coast.

As a recent college graduate he is able to use his experiences as a student to entertain this generation of college students in a hilarious way. Now that he is finished with his education he is ready to jump into the comedy scene to pursue his dream of becoming a national club and college act. This is one comic you don’t want to miss!
