After spending several years mastering the art of stand-up comedy, producers of the legendary NBC late-night comedy show, Saturday Night Live (1975), became aware of Gottfried and, in 1980, hired him as a cast member. It wasn't until a few years later when his true notoriety would begin when MTV hired him for a series of improvised and hilarious promos for the newly formed channel. This led to several television appearances on The Cosby Show (1984) and Late Night with David Letterman (1982).

Most notable was his improvised scene as business manager "Sidney Bernstein" in the hit sequel, Beverly Hills Cop II (1987), for which the New York Daily News said that "Gilbert Gottfried steals the picture with a single scene".

He appeared in such movies as Problem Child (1990), Problem Child 2...

Dave Attell, Gilbert Gottfried, Jeffrey Ross, etc.

Once opened for a The Go-Go's concert. His R-rated act was not a big hit with the audience, the majority of which was made up of teenage girls. Even Gottfried was surprised he was booked that night. and joked about it on the Howard Stern radio show.
