  • Quotes

    • Gutfeld (on hosting Red Eye): I feel like I'm a lion tamer holding chain saws because I want to say something funny, but I'm too busy going, "O.K., what do I do next?"

    • Gutfeld (on starting Red Eye): I've completely stopped exercising, I have not thought about going to a gym. My diet has gone to hell; I smoke more. I don't think my drinking has gotten worse; it's just more intense. I need it and I've never needed it. The one thing I hate about it is, the people around you, who you love, you end up being kind of mean to them. Because you feel they don't understand. And it's a very wrong kind of thing.

    • Gutfeld : Isn't it better to create an alternate universe where perverts and arsonists and people who belong to Moveon.org, can go and do these things without causing any problems?

    • Gutfeld: I suppose I could say these angry types are no better than cheerleaders for terrorism. After all, both entities - the left and terrorists - seem to share the same desire: to put the US, humiliatingly, in its place. But I would be wrong to say such things. Very wrong. Of course, "dissent is patriotic," and the left is only critical of America because it simply loves our country much more than I do. That's why calling them terrorists would be intolerant and pretty shameful. But what about "patriotic terrorists?

    • Gutfeld [referring to his show "Red Eye"] : "Red Eye" is like "Lost," except without all the sand.

    Never have I seen a wilder, nuttier, more insane host on television. I have heard him described as a "dwarf on crack," "a whacked out Energizer Bunny," and much worse.



    With Red Eye, you get to see him at his best. He becomes a no holes barred ringmaster to chaos. He manages to get his crew and guests to enter areas of discussion historically banned from television.



    On can only imagine what they were thinking when they gave him his own show. I firmly believe they were inebriated, but what do I know?



    I just love to watch!

    What happens when you get Gutfeld together with a bunch of bloggers and pundits together at 2 AM? The answer is utter chaos. He is nuts, wacko, cracked, and just plain warped. No topic is over the line. No individual is safe. He even reams his own network!

    At 2 AM this guy rocks! I love his show, "Red Eye," when I'm too tired to have any common sense. This is "guilty pleasure" redefined!



    He goes great with a beer, old pizza, and late night cram sessions.moreless
