Northern Lights Post Contributes to First-Ever Stand-Up DVD From Gilbert Gottfried

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 5, 2005 -- "Gilbert Gottfried Dirty Jokes," the first-ever stand-up DVD from the world's most outrageous comedian, will be released on both DVD and CD on December 6th by Image Entertainment, Inc. Award-winning Northern Lights Post and sister company Mr. Wonderful provided editorial, graphics and postproduction services on the DVD content, working closely with Director Adam Reid of Flycollar Films and Gottfried himself.

"Gilbert Gottfried Dirty Jokes" features 50 non-stop minutes of Gottfried telling the funniest and filthiest jokes ever. The show was filmed live at the Gotham Comedy Club in New York on May 9, 2005 and builds to a grand finale known as the Dirtiest Joke of All Time (also featured in "The Aristocrats"). The DVD and CD will be available for a suggested retail price of $14.99 and $14.98, respectively.

"What is so amazing about Northern Lights Post is the sheer talent of the editors," comments Director Adam Reid. "Everyone involved loves Gilbert's humor. The editors really believed in the project and brought so much to the production; they made it feel like a concert performance should. It's a minor miracle."

Northern Lights Post partnered with Reid on the project, pooling resources and talent during the six-week turnaround time.

During postproduction Gottfried himself became a fixture at Northern Lights Post. Gottfried says, "I can't vouch for their work, but I did get several free lunches and use of the phone for long distance calls."

To give something extra to his fans, Gottfried shot an additional 30 minutes of footage off-stage to include in the special features. Touted by Adam Reid as the "most amazing part of the disc," Gottfried gives a one-of-a-kind, intimate performance speaking directly to the viewer on a sweeping range of subjects from English muffins to famous people. This journey into the twisted and horrifyingly perverse mind of Gottfried cannot be found elsewhere.
