East Rutherford, New Jersey, January 31, 2014. …..Catch a Rising Star at the brand newly- renovated Victory Sports Bar and Club at the Meadowlands Racetrack on February 14, 2014 at 9 pm – the first major comedy presentation ever at this venue, with many more to come. Join the world famous Gilbert Gottfried as he shares his exceptional brand of humor with a new audience.
Catch CEO Suzy Yengo says “this is the Perfect spot for Valentines – an exquisite Aphrodisiac Inspired Menu with complimentary champagne, and a comic men simply adore. Something for every couple!”
After spending several years mastering the art of stand-up comedy, producers of the legendary NBC late night comedy show Saturday Night Live became aware of Gottfried and, in 1980, hired him as a cast member. It wasn’t until a few years later when his true notoriety would begin when MTV hired him for a series of improvised and hilarious promos for the newly formed channel. This led to several television appearances on “The Cosby Show” and “Late Night with David Letterman.”
Gottfried’s many credits include “Beverly Hills Cop II”. Other film credits include “Look Who’s Talking II” and “The Adventures of Ford Fairlane.” He was also the host of the very popular late night movie series “USA Up All Night,” “Aladdin.” Gottfried is the voice of DIGIT in Cyberchase.” He is a regular on the new “Hollywood Squares”, “The Tonight Show” and “The Howard Stern Show.” Gottfried recently appeared in the documentary “The Aristocrats,” with Entertainment Weekly quoting “out of the 101 comedians who appear on screen, no one is funnier – or more disgusting – than Gilbert Gottfried.”
“Gilbert Gottfried Dirty Jokes” was recently released on both DVD and CD, featuring 50 non-stop minutes of Gottfried telling the funniest and filthiest jokes ever. At the end of the show, Gottfried tells what is known among comedians as the “Dirtiest Joke of All Time,” which is also the basis for “The Aristocrats.”
