John Early on his comedy philosophy, Britney's music 13 MIN, 42 SEC

Gilbert Gottfried on why it's never too soon to joke about a sensitive subject 9 MIN, 15 SEC

Gilbert Gottfried’s comedy is adult, offensive, over-the-line. But you probably don’t know very much about Gottfried as a person. The documentary “Gilbert” wants to change that. We hear from Gottfried, his wife Dara Kravitz-Gottfried, and “Gilbert” director Neil Berkeley.
