[ # ] RIP Gilbert Gottfried
April 12th, 2022 under Gilbert Gottfried, Obits

Gilbert Gottfried passed away from complications from muscular dystrophy at the age of 67. His family wrote, “We are heartbroken to announce the passing of our beloved Gilbert Gottfried 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. Although today is a sad day for all of us, please keep laughing as loud as possible in Gilbert’s honor.”

Gottfried got his start on Saturday Night Live, but then he, literally, found his voice. Once he did, we knew we were never going to forget it. That is because his high-pitched, nasally voice penetrated every inch of your body when he told a joke.

That is why he was perfect for the voice of Iago the Parrot in<del datetime=”2022-04-12T20:11:47+00:00″> Aladin and the Aflac Duck. But he was also in front of the camera in productions like the Problem Child franchise, two Sharknados, and so much more.

Just like an earthquake, you always heard him before you felt him.

It is fitting that his last role was voicing Gd in Smiling Friends. Because now, he is making Gd smile.

Gottfried is survived by his wife Dara and their children, Lily Aster, 14, and Max Aaron, 12.
