Outspoken, outrageous and occasionally offensive, Gilbert Gottfried has been beloved as a “comedian’s comedian” for more than 30 years. Gottfried is known for his squinty, shouting comedic persona and for lending his unmistakable voice to a host of animated characters, including the parrot Iago in Disney’s Aladdin. His standup routine is not for the kids, though: Gottfried’s irreverent humor tests the boundaries of good taste, and he delivers what just might be the world’s dirtiest jokes. (For a hint of what to expect, Google “Gilbert Gottfried Aristocrats joke.”)
Gottfried is the author of Rubber Balls and Liquor, a mix of memoir and observational humor, and host of Gilbert Gottfried’s Amazing Colossal Podcast.

The winner of an NAACP Image Award for his role in Jumping the Broom, Epps has been seen in major releases, including The Fighting Temptations; All About the Benjamins; Hancock; The Janky Promoters (with Ice Cube), Sparkle (with Whitney Houston) and Next Day Air (with Mos Def).
Epps was first recognized as a talent by a national audience in 1995, when he appeared on the Def Comedy Jam Tour and performed on HBO’s Def Comedy Jambroadcasts. His recent stand-up specials, Mike Epps: Underrated and Never Faded and Mike Epps Presents …, have both aired on Showtime. Epps also has released his first comedy rap album, Funny Bidness: Da Album, featuring Snoop Dogg, Kid Rock and Slim Thug.
