Born February 28, 1955, New York - American stand-up comedian, film and television actor, voice actor.
For the first time as a stand-up comedian, Gottfried tried himself at the age of 15 in clubs in New York. In 1980, he first appeared on the television music and comedy program Saturday Night Live, where he played many different comedy roles in ten issues throughout the year, including parodies of businessman-politician David Stockman and director Roman Polanski.
In 1984 he first appeared on the wide screen in the film "House of God", and in 1992 he first appeared as a voice actor - the role of Iago the parrot in the full-length animated film "Aladdin". He later voiced this parrot many more times, not only in cartoons, but also in video games. Gottfried said in an interview that his voice acting career began with this character, on which he worked in the 1992 cartoon: "This was the turning point from which my career began - working on Iago opened many doors for me." ... Gottfried's voiceover of this character has become so popular that he is often referred to as "Iago Boy" or similar nicknames.
In the late 1990s, Gottfried met Music executive Dara Kravitz (born 1970). On February 3, 2007, the couple got married, now they have two children: daughter Lily Astaire (born 2007) and son Max Aaron (born 2009).
