Jersey City, New Jersey -National talent and recent controversial joke maker Gilbert Gottfried headlines Thursday, April 14th, 2011 at Michael Anthony’s dazzling Waterfront Restaurant in Jersey City, New Jersey. Host John “Nutsy” Fagan, another Jersey City Resident, will be on hand to warm up the evening.
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.”
