From the GATW Archives: Interview: Bobcat Goldthwait (writer/director, WORLD’S GREATEST DAD)


There’s two things I learned from interviewing Bobcat Goldthwait. The first being this: NOTHING is taboo. When I say nothing is taboo, I mean he’ll bring up his idea of a musical that involves fisting - and there’s no snickering (except on my end) and he speaks of it (fisting) like it’s no big deal.

The second thing I learned is that Bobcat is the coolest person I’ve ever spoken to. That became obvious when the first question I asked him was “how are you doing?” And his response was “Oh, I’m okey-doke.” Bobcat, if you read this, let’s do another soon, k?

Check out our interview, where we talk about his new film, WORLD’S GREATEST DAD. This is fairly long interview, clocking in around 19 minutes, but there’s a bonus - I also spoke with Daryl Sabara, who plays Robin Williams’ doomed perverted son. I can promise you this, this will be the best 19 minutes your ears will ever have. Okay, maybe not the best, but I can promise you won’t regret listening to this interview. Both Bobcat and Daryl are very, very interesting people. Give it a go! Let me know what you thought!
