    Is Howard purposely not letting Gilbert be funny so someone can tweet howard later
    and tell him he's the greatest interviewer ever and he can then favorite that tweet to make himself feel good? :facepalm:

    "the show have evolved. We didn't want the character Gilbert. He have been on the show to many times. The real Gilbert is more interesting. My show is about honesty. "

    I'm listening to it now and thinking the same. Just not fun or funny. Had a few moments but quite dull for a Gilbert appearance.

    There will be no congratulating Gilbert on his brand new baby and must remind Gilbert that Afflac commercial was small time money. Completely forgetting that in the past he said the Afflec money was such big money for such little effort.

    I just heard Gilbert on Marc Maron's WTF podcast and he was great! Fun and funny.

    "Fuck you, gay Howard!"

    Wiggy is a scheming mofo... I thought I heard in the 1st hour that he said Gilbert was in to promote something... there was nothing there, just some shitty plugs for Cincy and Chicago appearances...signed books? BS!!!

    He was booked because he is known as a fan favorite by older/long term fans... Howard is spinning much harder than he did with AGT ratings to try and "improve" THSS... key reason is why? What the fuck is wiggy up to?

    we've heard the performing Gilbert for years.

    this was interesting and different. I don't think anyone has ever heard Gilbert be a grownup.

    Mark Maron scooped Howard on the "no schtick" Gilbert interview already. Much better than wiggys and free. Check out his WTF podcast on Itunes.

    I don't think they discussed anything new.

    I just finished Gilbert's book. Much like the author, it was an exceptionally grating, dry read and I'm sad to say I didn't really enjoy it. But afterwards I started listening to all the old Stern appearances on YouTube and was happy to see he was going to be on the show this week. Then I heard the interview...

    I always like to hear Gilbert on the show, but if you want funny check out the first two Penn Jillette's Sunday School podcasts he did (Episode 7: We've Got Gilbert Gottfried! and Episode 14: Gilbert Gottfried Again!). Those are legitimately funny Gilbert appearances. Especially when he keeps accusing Penn of misquoting MLK as saying "Here come the judge!!" and about a dozen other hilarious, old black comedian's catchphrases. The recent Marc Maron WTF was also good.

    howard knows gilberts appearances with artie were epic.....so he wont compete but just go the exact opposite route.
