Gilbert Gottfried Dead at 67

Gilbert Gottfried dead at 67. The famed comedian and actor has passed away after a long illness according to a statement released by his family.

Gottfried, born in 1955, began doing stand-up comedy in New York City when he was just 15. His unique style brought him out of the clubs and halls of stand up comedy, and into the homes of millions in TV shows and movies beginning in 1980.

Gilbert provided the voice of Iago in the animated Aladdin movies and TV series in the early and mid 1990’s. He had memorable roles in Problem Child movies, Dr. Dolittle, Beverly Hills Cop II, and more.

Gottfried married Dara Kravitz in 2007 and has a son and daughter with her.

LootPlex sends its condolences to the family and friends of Gilbert Gottfried.

Smith’s Sentiment: Gilbert Gottried was a comedy legend and always brought a smile to my face and of course hearty laughter. You’d be hard to find someone better at comedy roasts than Mr. Gottfried. Rest in peace and thanks for the laughs.
