Josh Gondelman is a writer and comedian who is a writer on Season 2 of HBO’S Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. His talent for smushing words together earned him work writing for Fuse TV’s Funny Or Die Presents: Billy On The Street, and then got him his position as Web Producer for Season 1 of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, where he wrote and managed digital content for The Daily Show alum’s new HBO show.
After incubating in Boston, Josh moved to New York City to bring his stand-up comedy to larger audiences. With years of experience as a preschool teacher and a pretty good guy, Josh charms audiences using his good-natured storytelling and cracks them up with his sharp, pointy wit. Onstage, Josh's first break came when he traveled to Atlanta for the inaugural Laughing Skull Comedy Festival, where he turned heads and captured first prize! He has also performed at the Rooftop Comedy Festival in Aspen, CO, and headlined at the Laugh Your Asheville Off Festival in Asheville, NC. More recently he has appeared in the Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival, the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, and SF Sketchfest.
