Gilbert Gottfried to Perform in Teaneck for Black Box

(Courtesy of BBPAC) On Thursday, June 27, at 8 p.m., famed comedian and actor Gilbert Gottfried will perform a comedy show at the Black Box Performing Arts Center in Teaneck. This event will serve as a fundraiser for various programs at the Black Box Performing Arts Center, including the upcoming Shakespeare in the Park in Bergen County and educational programs.

At the young age of 15, Gilbert Gottfried began doing stand-up at open-mike nights in New York City, and became known around town as “the comedian’s comedian.” In 1980, he joined “Saturday Night Live” as a cast member, but his true notoriety would begin when MTV hired him for a series of improvised and hilarious promos. After his stellar performance as the wise-cracking parrot, Iago, in the Disney classic “Aladdin,” Gottfried became one of the most recognizable voiceover talents, including the frustrated AFLAC duck. As a famed comic’s comic, Gottfried puts aside political correctness for his live performance and fires an onslaught of jokes that know no boundaries.

Opening for Gottfried is Chip Ambrogio. Chip’s comedy career includes performing on the road and all the major city clubs. Chip has been a contributing writer for The Friars Club Roasts and the Hulu Plus project “Don’t Know Jack.” He is co-creator of “Room for Improvement,” a reality show pilot selected as a finalist at the New York Television Festival. Currently writing for some of today’s top headliners, he’s a sought-after joke doctor for established acts and top newcomers.
