Happy 61st Birthday. My does Gilbert Gottfried have an easily recognisable voice, when it comes to characters like Iago from Aladdin, Digit from Cyberchase, one of Kraang's VAs from the Nicktoons TMNT, and other such roles he has on the list.

@CuriousUserX90 That's not even displaying the other voices he can do. Or even his real, deep, soft-spoken voice.

Happy 61st, Gil!

As I've said before, he's actually got quite an astonishing voice range. Just listen to his James Mason, Jerry Seinfeld or Groucho Marx impressions. He just mostly uses his 'standup' voice in his voice roles.
He is one of the most intriguing and complexing comedians I have ever come across. He's full of surprises, and admittedly some of those surprises are good ones.
As of late I've even gotten used to his 'standup' voice.
He's weird, unique, and sometimes in his 1986 video, actually pretty funny. His voice, his timing, his body language... there's no one else like him!

He actually kind of has a good ear for impressions, or at least he can do more funny voices than the one he's known for.
If you look at his impressions in 'Greetings from Gilbert' (1986), you'd be quite surprised.

No Seriously. WHY DO PEOPLE KEEP CASTING HIM AS IRRITATINGLY ANNOYING BIRDS?! (Iago, the Aflac Duck, Digit)

@Omega Shadowx6 I'm sure Michael Pan and Anders Hatlo have voiced more birds than he has.

That voice we keep hearing from Gilbert isn't even his natural voice, his natural voice is revealed here!: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EdbElWMnkyY

@Jacob M. Keene He was very soft spoken on Saturday Night Live. You know, this is the voice I hear in my head when I read stuff like his article for CNN on Robin Williams. That's the voice I picture when he's being really sincere.

@Jacob M. Keene I was surprised too when I heard his voice on SNL. I almost didn't recognise him!

It's so weird to see him his eyes open, I'm so use to him squinting
BlankSlate

@Music Meister He didn't squint so much on SNL. Also there's that photograph his sister took of him.

Oh, and he kinda looks like Merritt Stone, don't you think?

I love that photo! That salmon shirt really complements his olive skin, and the way it really pops against that dark background is just WOW!

I love the fact that he is playing a Kraang in the season 2 finale of Ninja Turtles.

I wouldn't read 50 Shades of Grey but if Gilbert Gottfried narrated it as an official audio book (like he did for Jest Comedy),I'd give the series a shot.

Didn't he lose being the Aflac Duck due to his comments at Japan during the tsunami?

@KZN02 correct. that's when they opened the role nationwide for auditions.
