Comedian, actor and voice artist Gilbert Gottfried will be lending his talents to help the Forest Hills Volunteer Ambulance Corps raise money as part of their “Laughter is the Best Medicine…Take 2″ charity event.
Hosted by comedian Joe Mylonas, the comedy show will take place at Queens Theatre in Flushing Meadows Corona Park on Saturday, August 22. Comedians Robyn Schall and Just Plain Keith will open for Gottfried and the night will also feature a live auction hosted by comic auctioneer Marc Zakarin.
Some of Gottfried’s most notable roles include the parrot Iago in Aladdin, the Aflac duck and a reoccurring guest role on Hollywood Squares. He began doing stand-up in New York City at 15 and in 1980 had a brief stint as a cast member on the sixth season of “Saturday Night Live.”
The comedy show is slated to start at 7 p.m. and tickets are selling for $40 to $50. The auction starts at 6:30 p.m. with a showing at 6:00 p.m.
A free shuttle bus to the event will also be provided from the 7 train at the Mets/Willets Point station.
