Bobcat Goldthwait, who is known for his exuberant stage character, has moved on from his distinctive high-pitched accent and now performs stand-up comedy with his natural voice.
Goldthwait is back, and he’s got a new voice.
Goldthwait, an actor, director, comedian, and screenwriter, rose to prominence as a stand-up comedian in the 1980s (Thanks to his distinct voice, political satires, and black comedy style.) However, the comedian has developed as an artist by putting his former manner behind him.
Goldthwait returns to the stage, but this time he utilizes his real voice to make the audience laugh. He used his genetically blessed voice to perform for the massive crowd in a series of YouTube videos broadcast by Laugh Out Loud Flix in March 2020. He performed an hour-long show for the crowd, who adored it and greeted him with loud applause, claps, and laughs.
He did, however, unleash his signature shriek at times during the ‘Old Bobcat’ performance.
The stand-up acknowledged having a special connection with the live crowd during his performance. He then added a punchline, saying, “Ladies and gentlemen, I ran out of money.” “I’m not going to tell you anything.”
The audience erupted in laughter.
Goldthwait’s admirers were ecstatic to see his new side, and they flooded his YouTube comment section with favorable feedback. As one user put it, “People, he’s still got it, dammit! Actually, it’s funnier than ever!” Another admirer said, “He’s actually funnier now than he was back then. It’s really good!”
While watching the film, some viewers reminisced about their childhood. As one person put it, “In 1988, he gave a live event at my college in Memphis. He was terrific back then, and he still is now.” According to another reviewer, “You created one of the most memorable personalities of the 1980s with this. Legend.” Bobcat Goldthwait’s stand-up video has received a lot of feedback on YouTube. (Image credit: YouTube)
