Gilbert Gottfried Dead at 67
Gilbert Gottfried, whose amazingly grating voice so perfectly illustrated his abrasive brand of comedy, is dead at 67.
“In addition to being the most iconic voice in comedy, Gilbert was a wonderful husband, brother, friend and father to his two young children,” the Gottfried family said in a statement on his Twitter account. “Although today is a sad day for all of us, please keep laughing as loud as possible in Gilbert’s honor.”
He was a rare comedian who managed to make a career telling some of the most memorable dirty jokes while also having a prolific run in some of the biggest family-friendly films and TV shows.
