Gilbert Gottfried (born February 28, 1955) is an American stand-up comedian and actor whose trademark is a distinctively loud, rasping, grating voice and squinting eyes. He has played numerous roles in film and television, perhaps most notably voicing the parrot Iago in Disney's Aladdin (1992), as well as co-starring in the Problem Child movies. He was also the voice of the Aflac duck until March 2011 and was a recurring star on Hollywood Squares, hosted by Tom Bergeron. In March 2011, Gottfried posted insensitive tweets regarding the Sendai earthquake and tsunami. These tweets cost him his job as the voice of the AFLAC duck.
