Quite a few years back I stumbled into a little hole in the wall comedy club that he was playing in Ft. Lauderdale. He was FILTHY, not at all what I was expecting. He was hilarious live. A few years later I ran into him in Philly at the airport, we were both on the same flight that was delayed. We ended up talking for quite some time. He was a pretty cool dude. RIP Gilbert.

Never saw his stand up and mostly knew him from the TV/movie appearances. Reading up on him a bit his crude style was pretty prominent in his career. He went into a lengthy set of masturbation jokes in reference to Paul Ruban (PeeWee Herman) being arrested during the Primetime Emmy Awards and got in trouble for that.


May need to go look for some of his stand up. 


That voice and the squinting was not natural, and part of his persona.
