Gilbert Gottfried is truly a one of a kind actor and comedian. His voice may be annoying to some, but unforgettable to all.

Rest In Peace, Gilbert.
You were a legend, a GOAT, my idol and one of my favorite comedians ever. I have Aladdin on VHS.📼
You were also breathtaking.
Deborah Carroll
Deborah Carroll:
One of his appearances on Hollywood Squares is my favorite. The contestants needed his square to win and they kept getting the answer wrong. He had like ten questions in a row asked without a win, and each time he yelled, "You fool!". It was hilarious. The host finally just said, "Welcome to the Gilbert Gottfried Show."
Michael Whitley
Michael Whitley:
RIP Gilbert Gottfried. My most memorable moments of him were Digit of Cyberchase, Problem Child and Look who's talking! May his soul rest in peace!

This guy when he used to appear on The Howard Stern Show back in the day was a madman. I remember him as a kid from Problem Child too. That voice is iconic.

I loved him so much. He was a joyous voice actor. Gilbert was a joyous character actor, whom made so many people happy. I pray he gets a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame or his legacy. But that would never happen in the end.

It may not be as well known, but Gilbert also had a cameo on an episode of "Living Single," where he once again stole the show as a loveable villain - he was HILARIOUS.

God this man means the world to me & millions
of others. Also condolences to his family &
Frank (his co host on his podcast). RIP man.
Now you get to see Arlene (his sister) & your loved ones again.😓

Quick story: as a kid, I used to watch Cyberchase at my daycare providers next door, like clockwork, at 4:00 on PBS, and when it was over, my dad would come home around 4:25 and pick us up. I never forgot that. I’ll never forget Gilbert.
Bryan Scott
Bryan Scott:
Without a doubt Problem Child is my absolute favorite Gottfried appearance. After watching some of his best Toast moments, this man is an absolute genius.
His voice was truly something unique and special. Aladdin and his appearance on Hollywood Squares were probably my favorite moments form him. RIP <3
King Infinite
King Infinite:
My 2 favorite moments of his in general are in Problem Child duology when he frantically shouts "WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO WITH THE LITTLE CREEP?! HE'S ALREADY BEEN RETURNED 30X!!!" from the first film and then when Junior enters his office and he just instantly starts screaming bloody murder in the sequel😆😂
I had the chance to meet him on 18th st. coming out of Barney's of New York. Very shy but appreciative of our very loud acknowledgment his presence.
R.I.P. Mr. Gottfried.
Tristan Penfold
Tristan Penfold:
Tears of laughter mixed with a few tears of sorrow running down my face. Gilbert was one of my comedy heroes, and his podcast was outstanding as well. Can't believe there'll be no more Cesar Romero orange wedge jokes, Herve Villechaize in Scent of a Woman or Old Groucho... RIP Gilbert, you will be sorely, truly missed. 😔

Joshua Mohlman:
“Look at this! I’m so ticked off that I’m molting!”
- Iago, Aladdin
RIP Mr. Gottfried, you will be missed
I saw him perform live back in the early 2000’s, and he was amazing. Definitely one of the funniest comics I’ve ever seen live, and when I saw him he was the middle act and Mitch Hedberg was the headliner—and he was a tough act for Mitch to follow. So damn funny, he’s a legend that will be sorely missed.

Rest in Peace Gilbert Gottfried. I will always remember you when I watch Aladdin.
Christo Abrie
Christo Abrie:
when he appeared on Celebrity Apprentice; though the show is classier than most of the reality shows we've come to loathe, there was no shortage of catfights (for both the ordinary and Celebrity versions), except for Gilbert, he was the lone bright star who nobody gunned for because they all respected him. Even when he got fired, he accepted his loss with grace and dignity, something even Donald Trump couldn't deny.
One of my favorite Gilbert Gottfried moments was the College Humor sketch where he reads sections of 50 shades of grey
Opening this video with both Gilbert Gottfried and Bob Saget feels real bad man. We lost two greats, and I'll never get that full audiobook reading of 50 Shades of Grey done by Gilbert Gottfried.
The guy was amazing. Vividly remember him from Problem Child and other cult films of the 1990s. RIP.
Lord FireChops
Lord FireChops:
His best roast performance was on historical roasts where he played Hitler in the roast of Anne Frank.
Scott Soucy

A true original! Unforgettable, fearless and tenacious. You might not have liked his voice, but once you heard it you couldn't get it out of your head!

Goofus Maximus:
Even with a voice like nails on a chalkboard, when you hear it, you're gonna have a good time laughing!!

Rest in peace Gilbert. Thanks for making us laugh.

Gilbert was the best comedian ever he and Robin are my two favorite comedians those two were great in Aladdin Iago and the genie were made for them RIP Gilbert it felt like those two were brothers in the comedy world there won't be another Gilbert or Robin
Jack Mack
Jack Mack:
You forgot one important role of his in movies: Johnny Crunch in The Adventures Of Ford Fairlane. Gilbert played a foulmouthed radio DJ who's friends with and hires the titular "rock and roll detective" to find someone for him. Classic Gilbert Gottfried. RIP
John J. Apanovitch
John J. Apanovitch:
Still can't believe that he passed away. He voiced Digit in Cyberchase, a show that my older brother and I watched while growing up. So, when I heard about his passing, it shocked me a ton. I hope he is making Heaven laugh, and this video is such a wonderful tribute to everything he has done for the world of entertainment.

RIP Gilbert Gottfried love from the UK. Favourite moments of his being on Beverly Hills Cop 2, being on US version of Celebrity Squares, and his voice over work
Philip Bruchman
Philip Bruchman:
I was shocked when I heard he passed. Hilarious and beloved RIP Gilbert, we love you
Aladdin was the first movie I remember seeing in theaters. Rest easy Gilbert.
My favorite Gottfried moment was his appearance on Norm Macdonald's podcast. Gottfried talked about one of Jerry Lewis' telethons for kids with muscular dystrophy. Gottfried explained how Jerry always hosted the first part and he got to interact with the kids that didn't look so bad. Then guest hosts would do the later segments and they always ended up with the kids that had it bad.
Tony Orlando was on one year and he got a kid in a wheelchair who had a real bad case. Tony asked the kid if he wanted to do a song together. The kid nodded the best he could. The music started and Tony Orlando began singing "When there's something strange in your neighborhood. Who ya gonna call?" The he put the mic to the kid and the kid blasted out the best he could, "Gooothh buthers."
The two comedy legends laughed till they cried.
Man Norm, Saget and now Gottfried all gone months apart.

Anyone Roast he was a part of was always hilarious. But I gotta give #1 - to him playing Fred Fuchs in AVGN.
Michael Lawrence
Michael Lawrence:
Definitely the kind of humorist we need today. An understated genius.
Rest in peace Gilbert Gottfried, you will forever be immortalized as One of the greatest Disney villain’s sidekicks
One of Gottfried's most memorable lines as Iago is truly eerie now:

"Why am I NOT surprised?! I think I'll have a heart attack and die of not surprised!"
In honor of how great Gilbert was and is, we should start a favorite joke thread by him, I'll go first.(Also, if its The Aristocrats Joke, just say it. Lol.)

How do you know you're at a gay picnic? All the hot dogs taste like shxxt.

Thank you Gilbert and God bless you.
Brittany Morford
Brittany Morford:
Going to miss Gilbert Gottfried. He was the best. I seen him in everything. I also miss Bob Saget too.
Besides the voice of Iago he's also best known as the original voice of the Affleck Duck.

I don’t know if this counts but Godfrey would do Jewish Dracula on the Stern Show. Honestly it’s one of the funniest things I’ve ever heard in my life yo😂😂😂

Dave Davidson:
His stand up was hilarious in the 80's, R.I.P. Gilbert. His attacks on Paul Ruben was uncalled for though. Dude was in an adult theater pre internet, we all knew what happened in them.

when I got my new truck I had sirus, and listening to his pod cast was the funniest thing ive ever heard...he was so intelligent well informed and totally sad he's gone.
I remember watching him voice Iago in Aladdin and seeing him on Hollywood Squares as a kid. It still feels sad to see him go. RIP Gilbert Gottfried.

I always thought that he would be the perfect Bond
Great actor, great comedian. He will be missed.
R.I.P Mr Gottfried, your portrayal of Iago will live on in my heart for the rest of my days (and Iago’s cameo in Farce of the Penguins) 😔😔😔

Always a Fan Mr Gottfried 💙🐱💙
