    I'm sorry I don't share your view of him. He is like fingernails on a chalkboard to me.

    I just can't handle his voice. Even if his material might be all right, the voice puts me off.

    well, the voice is part of the factor...it is so annoying and so grating, that it is funny...if you don't like his voice, chances are you won't find him amusing

    That's his charm :love:.

    He was voted unsexiest man in the world and totally embraced the top position. His comments were hilarious :rofl:.

    The voice is the act though. He doesn't sound like that normally.

    Jeez, Flash ... that is the most obnoxious man in the universe.
    Very funny, though.
    Like Don Rickles on a mix of MDA and horse tranquilizers.


    Very true. Here, at 1:16, you hear his real voice.
    (I assume it's for real, but who knows?)

    yes, but the obnoxiousness is the "act"...and is very funny...

    you should hear Jeffrey Ross...he is the best at these roasts.

    Exactly the same opinion here. Horrendous.

    I'm not a big fan...loved him in Aladdin :) but to me...he always looks like he's trying to take a big poo...and its hung sideways.

    I don't think he's the least bit funny. Anoying, yes! On the recent posts about comedians, Gottfried was the name I couldn't remember exactly.

    I agree Videophile. Listening to Gottfried is (as nudeyorker notes) like fingernails on the blackboard. He's abrasive, unfunny, and should get job selling shoes at the local Mall.

    I can't stand Gottfried and wonder if it was drugs and that's true origin of his name, Got(t)-Fried. If I see his image move onto the television screen I hit mute and then change the channel, his voice is worse than razor wire cutting into the bottom of the feet. Humor?-perhaps if you are in a subterranean netherworld where steel wool is used as toilet tissue.
