Josh Gondelman


In his newest hour, Dancing On a Weeknight, Josh Gondelman continues to demonstrate a brand of kindness and calm that is all his own. While celebrating his wife’s wisdom, ruminating on the joy of living with a pug and sharing with the crowd a hilarious private moment from his wedding, he disarms the audience and gets comfortable in a way most comedians do not. So… get comfortable, throw on Josh’s newest hour and by the end of it, we expect you’ll be so excited that you may be Dancing On a Weeknight as well.


Josh Gondelman is a writer and comedian who incubated in Boston before moving to New York City, where he currently lives and works as a writer and producer for Desus and Mero on Showtime. Previously, he spent five years at Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, first as a web producer and then as a staff writer, where he won three Emmy awards.

Offstage, Josh has earned two Peabody Awards, three Emmy awards, and two WGA Awards for his work on Last Week Tonight. He is also the co-author (along with Joe Berkowitz) of the book You Blew It, published October 2015 by Plume. His follow-up, Nice Try, is set to come out Fall 2019 through Harper Perennial.
