Dana Gould

I was born and raised in the ironically-named town of Hopedale, Mass. I started performing stand-up comedy at the tender age of 17. As a performer, I was too young to be any good. As a person, I was socially inept and looked weird. Let's skip ahead.

I moved to Los Angeles in the halcyon days of 'The Comedy Boom', and in quick succession, I performed in several HBO specials, numerous appearances on Conan and Letterman. I recorded the CD Fun House which was called 'a comedy CD' by Billboard magazine, and an actor, appeared on Seinfeld, The Ben Stiller Show and the series Working (which wasn't, and was soon cancelled).

After writing the pilot World On A String (with Jay Kogen), I co-created MTV's lamented, Super Adventure Team (with Rob Cohen). I then joined The Simpsons for 7 years. Stand up remains a big part of my career, and I still perform regularly. I appeared in the film The Aristocrats and have a new CD/DVD due in March 2009. I live in LA with my wife and a bunch of kids and dogs. I think we had a hamster, but I haven't seen it around.

I regularly do commentary for the wildly successful Lucha Vavoom promotion. It's a little bit Mexican pro wrestling, a little sexy burlesque, a little bit comedy and a lot of fun. I tend to say witty things while grown men playfight and women do a striptease. No you may not change places with me.
