Gilbert Gottfried

SiriusXM is saddened by the loss of Gilbert Gottfried, who, according to his family, passed away after a long illness.

“In addition to being the most iconic voice in comedy, Gilbert was a wonderful husband, brother, friend and father to his two young children,” they wrote in a tweet. “Although today is a sad day for all of us, please keep laughing as loud as possible in Gilbert’s honour.”

A frequent guest on many SiriusXM channels, Gottfried also shared his unmistakable voice and signature wit while hosting the SiriusXM original podcast Gilbert Gottfried’s Amazing Colossal Show!, where he and co-host Frank Santopadre talked with actors, directors, musicians and more about their experiences in Hollywood’s golden era. Past episodes are available to stream on the SiriusXM App
