There was always a glint in his eye when Gottfried was just about to tell an edgy joke, for example this one from his Just for Laughs set in 2015: “Let me tell you when I was a little boy if my father bought me a baseball I would’ve made out with him … and I don’t want to tell you what I would’ve done for a G.I Joe.”

Whether it was natural disasters or terrorist attacks, the phrase “too soon” was never a part of his vocabulary as Gottfried told NPR in 2011.

“There’s that old saying, tragedy plus time equals comedy. And I always say like, well, why wait?”

Gottfired was also an actor, including lending his unique voice to Disney’s Aladdin.
