Iconic comedian and voice actor Gilbert Gottfried has died at the age of 67.
- His family broke the news Tuesday afternoon on Gottfried's Twitter account: "We are heartbroken to announce the passing of our beloved Gilbert Gottfried after a long illness. In addition to being the most iconic voice in comedy, Gilbert was a wonderful husband, brother, friend and father to his two young children."
- Gottfried's shrill delivery gave him one of the most recognizable voices in all of comedy - a frequent guest on Howard Stern, late-night talk shows, and comedy roasts. He was briefly a Saturday Night Live cast member for one season in 1980.
- He was also a prolific voice actor, best known for playing Iago in Disney's Aladdin, and as the original voice of the AFLAC duck.
