I noticed Gilbert carry out in 1985 and when he entered to applause he stated, “Thanks, thanks very a lot.” He then continued to say “thanks” repeatedly for ten full minutes. It was the nerviest, funniest factor I had seen. So sorry to lose this candy and delightfully humorous man.

Gilbert Gottfried made me snicker so onerous that day on set, I may barely do my job. A completely authentic comedian, and an equally variety and humble man behind the scenes. He can be missed. https://t.co/93cKB6KEg8
