The world of comedy, famous friends remember Gilbert Gottfried

We lost Gilbert Gottfried today. The stand-up comedian and actor with a singular voice died of heart failure, but he won’t be forgotten anytime soon. Gottfried rose to fame in the ’80s as a scene-stealing comedian in movies like Beverly Hills Cop II, Problem Child and Look Who’s Talking Too. In the comedy clubs, he perfected his trademark screeching, pissed-off personality. Fellow comedians loved him. And he became a family favorite when he played Iago the Parrot in Disney’s 1992 classic Aladdin. Gottfried made a mark, and the comedy world and other famous friends remembered him the same way.
