Dana Gould began his professional comedy career at the tender age of seventeen and spent the next twenty years or so performing in the halcyon days of “The Comedy Boom”. Between HBO and Showtime, Dana has five stand-up comedy specials to his credit, as well guest appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night With Conan O’Brien, Maron, and Real Time with Bill Maher. As an actor, he had memorable turns on Seinfeld, Parks and Rec and was a writer/performer on the original Ben Stiller Show. He also appears regularly on Maron and Real Time With Bill Maher.
After writing the pilot World On A String (with Jay Kogen), Dana co-created MTV’s late, lamented Super Adventure Team (with Rob Cohen). He then joined the staff of The Simpsons, where he was a Co-Executive Producer and performed several voices for the show. He was also a producer on NBC’s Parks and Recreation and recently recurred in Frank Darabont’s show Mob City on TNT. Dana is currently writing and producing the upcoming IFC series Stan Against Evil.
Dana’s stand-up remains a big part of his career, and he continues to perform regularly across the country. In 2009, Dana recorded a one-hour Showtime comedy special, Let Me Put My Thoughts In You, and in 2013 recorded his next special, I Know It’s Wrong. His monthly podcast, The Dana Gould Hour, was an instant hit, frequently residing in iTunes’ top ten comedy downloads.
