Gilbert Gottfried touched many people, in an inappropriate manner. Whether delivering the voice of a parrot called Iago in Aladdin or as Sidney Bernstein in Beverly Hills Cop II, he was a comedian that made you laugh. During his 67 trips around the sun, Gilbert was one of a kind funny.
“I have always felt comedy and tragedy are roommates. If you look up comedy and tragedy, you will find a very old picture of two masks. One mask is tragedy. It looks like its crying. The other mask is comedy. It looks like its laughing. Nowadays, we would say, How tasteless and insensitive. A comedy mask is laughing at a tragedy mask.” Gilbert Gottfried
