The 52-year-old Goldthwait is an entertainment and stand-up veteran, in high demand since he burst on the scene with a made-up stage voice in the 1980s. He has dropped the voice, but his standup still riffs on politics, divorce, going broke, and his long career as a writer and director of film.
Goldthwait, also well known for his role of Zed in the 1980s “Police Academy” comedy flicks, continues to pursue writing and directing film, in addition to standup. In his latest film, “Call Me Lucky” he tells Barry Crimmin’s incredible story of transformation from a rage-fueled funnyman into an acclaimed proponent of justice who personified the healing side of comedy. His new movie has won Best Documentary awards at the Boulder International Film Festival, the Tampa Gasparilla Film Festival and the Audience Award at the Chattanooga Film Festival. “Call Me Lucky” was also nominated at the Sundance and has received wide critical acclaim. The film is currently in select theaters, Visit: http://www.callmeluckymovie.com/.
In 2012, Bobcat unleashed Showtime one-hour special entitled “You Don’t Look the Same Either.” The comedy vet returned to the stage with a self-deprecating and topical instant comedy classic, taking the audience on a journey through his 30 year career as an 80s icon, to the guy who lit the Tonight Show set on fire…literally!
Since his first appearance on David Letterman at the age of 20, Bobcat has expanded his resume, directing movies and sharing his behind the camera talents on shows such as; “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “The Demetri Martin show,” “The Chappelle Show,” “The Man Show,” “Maron,” and “Crank Yankers.”
