The Jewish Student Union annually brings a speaker to campus in December. Past years have included visits from Henry Winkler, Wolf Blitzer and Jon Stewart.
Gottfried has achieved fame in his stand-up routines for his rapid-firetrain-of-thought delivery. He is a network television regular on “Hollywood Squares” and the “Tonight Show.” One of the first places many viewers saw Gottfried on television was as a regular on “Saturday Night Live.”
He has also appeared in a number of quirky roles in movies, including”Beverly Hills Cop II,” “Aladdin,” “Problem Child,” “How to Be a Player” and “Doctor Dolittle.”
