One of the most recognizable voices in comedy returns to Buffalo as Gilbert Gottfried will make a three-night stand at Helium Comedy Club Oct. 27-29.
Gottfried’s comedy career has a number of touchstones after he first took the stage when he was 15. After honing his act throughout New York City, Gottfried joined the cast of “Saturday Night Live” in 1980. He continued to work in television and film, notably in the “Problem Child” series and as the voice of Iago in the Disney classic, “Aladdin.”
He’s also made his bones in stand-up comedy many times over. Gottfried’s performed on a number of Comedy Central roasts, late-night talk shows and the comedy documentary, “The Aristocrats.”
Gottfried released his first book, “Rubber Balls and Liquor,” in 2011. One of his latest ventures is the “Amazing Colossal Podcast,” where Gottfried talks to many Hollywood legends about showbiz past.
Gottfried will perform five shows beginning at 8 p.m. Oct. 27, and 7:30 and 10 p.m. Oct. 28 and 29. Tickets for the general admission shows range from $20 to $25 and are available at buffalo.heliumcomedy.com.
