Austin Powers Update
Is his trademark voice his real voice? Take a listen to this clip from The Howard Stern Show...
Gilbert Jeremy Gottfried was born in Brooklyn, New York, the son of Lillian (Zimmerman), a homemaker, and Max Gottfried, who ran a hardware store with his own father, above which the family lived. At age 15, Gottfried began doing amateur stand-up in New York City and, after a few years, became known around New York as "the comedian's comedian." In 1980, Saturday Night Live was being retooled with a new staff and new comedians; the producers noticed Gottfried and hired him as a cast member for season 6. Gottfried's persona in SNL sketches was very different from his later characterization: he rarely (if ever) spoke in his trademark screeching, obnoxious voice and never squinted. During his 12-episode stint, he was given very little airtime and seldom used in sketches. Gottfried recalls a low point was having to play a corpse in a sketch about a sports organist hired to play inappropriate music at a funeral. Despite this, he had one recurring character (Leo Waxman, husband to Denny Dillon's Pinky Waxman on the recurring talk show sketch, "What's It All About?") and two celebrity impersonations: David A. Stockman and controversial film director Roman Polanski.
Gottfried's persona as a comedian features an exaggerated shrill voice and emphasis on crude humor. His numerous roles in film and television include voicing the parrot Iago in Disney's Aladdin animated films and TV show, Digit LeBoid in the PBS Kids Go! show Cyberchase, and Kraang Subprime in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Gottfried was also the voice of the Aflac Duck until 2011. He appeared in the critically panned commercial hit Problem Child in 1990.

The Three Holy Men and The Three Bears
A Catholic priest, a Baptist minister, and a Jewish rabbi want to see who’s best at their jobs, so they each go into the woods, find a bear, and attempt to convert it to their religion.
Later they get together at the local hospital and compare the results.
The priest, covered in some nasty looking scratches begins: “When I found my bear, he was quite angry at me coming into his cave. but I read to him from the Catechism and sprinkled him with holy water. Next week is his First Communion.”
“I found my bear by the stream,” says the minister, also covered in scratches, “and preached God’s holy word. At first he was very mad and hungry, but by the end was so mesmerized by the Word of God that he let me baptize him.”
They both look down at the rabbi, who is lying on a gurney in a full body cast with several deep wounds visible. “Looking back,” he said, " I shouldn’t have started with the circumcision.”
And Today's Jewish Joke is a study on comparative religion, from your host...
