The man behind the voice.
2 April 2019 | by leelooserraSee all my reviews

I love Gilbert. I've known Gilbert's act when I started listening to the Howard Stern show, Gilbert always had a special place in my heart. It was difficult to separate the comedian verse the real Gilbert. There were hints of his love life and then eventually his family life on Howard's show and at that point, I knew there was much more to Gilbert than the voice. I'm so happy I watched this documentary about his life. You'd would never know that Gilbert is the type of dad that would leave cute notes in his children's lunch boxes or frequently visits his sisters. I think what goes unsaid about Gilbert is that he is a master of creating a comedic personal that could tell the most offensive jokes and while making his audience laugh.
