Gilbert Gottfried stopped by to catch up with the crew and announced: “I’m here to sell my virginity.”

Howard put the joke aside and tried to get to the ‘real’ Gilbert, asking about his early days as a stand-up.

Gilbert confessed that he started doing stand-up because he enjoyed the rush–and not, as most would suspect, for the money: “In the early days, there was no money so I guess it was excitement.”

Gilbert said stand-up was different these days, citing ‘the comedy boom,’ as just about everyone thinks they can do stand-up, especially “those annoying guys who are the ‘funniest guy at the office’ who say, ‘Everyone says I should be a comedian.’ Those are the least funny.”
