Celebrities like Jason Alexander, Marlee Matlin and George Takkai are among those mourning the passing of comedian Gilbert Gottfried, who has died from a recurring, genetic heart disorder.

Gottfried’s distinctive, scratchy voice was heard for years as a talking duck in commercials for AFLAC insurance.

He first came to prominence with frequent appearances on MTV in its early days and as a cast member of “Saturday Night Live” in the 1980s.

Gottfried also did voice work for children’s television and movies, most famously playing the parrot Iago in Disney’s “Aladdin.”

Gilbert Gottfried was 67.
