Comedian Iliza Shlesinger explains the often misunderstood and highly evolved way of thinking that she calls "girl logic."  She relates girl logic to everything from the fashion and the work place to the most frustrating question a man can ask a woman - “what do you want to eat?”  Plus Iliza shares her thoughts on Harvey Weinstein, guys who fake their own deaths, how to win a reality show, and how to deal with mermaid hate mail.

Order Iliza Shlesinger's new book GIRL LOGIC: The Genius and The Absurdity on Amazon or download the audio version on Audible.

Comedian Gilbert Gottfried talks about the misery of working on the infamous Season 6 of Saturday Night Live and his ongoing problem with his podcast guests kicking the bucket just before they can make it on his show.  He talks about his lifelong battle against political correctness from his joke at the Friar’s Club Roast 2 days after 9/11 to his tweets about the Japanese Tsnumani that got him fired from his gig as the voice of the Aflac duck.  He talks about old movies and does his impressions of my recent podcast my guest David Steinberg, Vincent Price, early Larry David, old Lucille Ball, and senile Groucho, plus I verify the legend about Milton Berle.  You know which legend I'm talking about!

My guest today is legendary comedian David Steinberg.  David Steinberg will talk about how being part of the early days of Second City in Chicago, his 130 appearances on The Tonight Show (more than anyone other than Bob Hope) and his friendship with Johnny Carson, and how his appearance on The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour singlehandedly got the most popular show on television cancelled.  Plus David Steinberg talks about directing Larry David on Curb Your Enthusiasm, being bestman at a gangster’s wedding, getting on Nixon’s enemies list, and why he says I definitely should NOT try my hand at stand-up comedy.

If you enjoyed my conversation with David Steinberg, I would highly recommend that you subscribe to his wonderful podcast The David Steinberg Podcast on iTunes.  Order the documentary Quality Balls: The David Steinberg Story on Amazon, and follow David on Twitter at @david_steinberg or at www.thedavidsteinberg.com.
