avatar for Gilbert


Gilbert is a wildly funny and unexpectedly poignant portrait of the life and career of one of comedy's most iconic figures, Gilbert Gottfried.

Legendary comedian Gilbert Gottfried launched his career on Saturday Night Live and appeared in more than 140 films and television shows, from Disney’s Aladdin to Hollywood Squares. This documentary offers a rare look at this notoriously private person as he balances his ongoing career as a ribald comedian with his role as husband and father.  

Gilbert is directed by Oklahoma native Neil Berkeley, an award winning filmmaker who won deadCenter in 2012 with his film Beauty is Embarrassing and screened Harmontown in 2014.
