    Out of sheer boredom I downloaded a couple of Gilbert's podcasts. If you dig Gilbert at all, you'll love it. He interviewed Billy West this past summer and it was outstanding. Lots of old stories about the older comedians. I love that stuff.

    I have forgotten how great Gilbert is on the air. Thanks Howard.

    i've listened to all of the podcasts that he's posted. i find them highly entertaining and very informative. i find myself laughing out loud quite a bit. he's an ok interviewer but you can tell that he is a fan of the people he interviews. some of his interviews seem to be tributes as much as a simple interview.

    The Adam West interview was great too. And nothing is as infectious as hearing Gilbert laugh... it always puts a smile on my face.

    Agreed! Surprisingly well done shows, and I've never been a huge Gilbert fan. Maybe the least obnoxious sidekick of any of the podcasts I hear. Gilbert is unexpectedly genuine.

    I'm even enjoying the Joe Franklin episode, and I always found him a crashing bore back when the ancient dude had his own show. The guy must be pushing 100 now and he sounds great. Apparently John Lennon forced Yoko on him in a 5 for 1 swap.

    How infectious is Gilbert's maniacal laugh when he gets rolling? He is a riot.

    Holy crap, Danny Aiello interview 10 minutes in and he's already said David Caruso isn't an actor and that Aiello was banned from Scorcese movies because he walked into Sardi's and called the director a "midget little motherfucker" !

    I've heard Aiello interviewed before (e.g. Nick and Artie show) and don't particularly like him or his self importance, but this is good stuff.

    Aiello is a lunatic. In all seriousness he pulls this "Thanks Obama" out of his ass:

    "'Cause it drives me friggin' crazy when I see the shit that they're showing on television. I'm sittin' there. 'Dating Naked'?? Why don't this President work his ass up and say 'Stop this shit. Stop this garbage on television.'. I'm talking people naked, 'Dating Naked', what is this??... Why do you think Arabs hate us, man.... I think the President should come out and say 'Stop all this shit.'"

    "Say it, Larry, say it."

    "I'm layin' here with a dirty rotten whore!"

    Regular ritual conversation between Larry Fine and his wife since she suspected him to be cheating on her while on tour. (To prove his innocence or drive away said whore.)

    Great nugget, Cox episode.

    The latest Orson Bean episode could of been better, if Orson's wife Ally Mills could stop cackling like a parrot dying in the background would stop.
