Gilbert Gottfried Performs at JR's Last Laugh

Posted: Updated:
 He's Mr. Peabody in "Problem Child" and Iago from "Aladdin."

And now, for the first time, Gilbert Gottfried is performing at Junior’s Last Laugh.

On Thursday, Gottfried touched on a number of topics, including religion and the impact Twitter has had on his career, specifically, with the company Aflac.

Gottfried’s role as the Aflac duck came to an end, when he was fired over jokes he made on Twitter about the 2011 Japan earthquake.

"It's ok because they ended up getting loads of free publicity, hired a guy to imitate my voice for less money, thus bringing closure to a horrible tragedy." said Gottfried.

In addition to stand-up comedy, Gilbert is also currently working on a podcast.

"Other than that, I'm waiting for them to bring back “Murder She Wrote,” so I can do a guest appearance and people can look at me and go, he looks familiar, but he's 90." said Gottfried.

 As for what audience members can expect from his performance...

"What they can expect, if anyone starts to act up, just watch out, because I’m tough,” said Gottfried.  “I served in the Marines and I use to slap the enemy.”

Gottfried is performing at JR's Last Laugh on Friday at 9:30 p.m. and on Saturday at 6:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $20.
