Transformer Fest: Comedian Josh Gondelman at Comedy Grotto/Flat Burger Society
On Saturday, October 15th, the final night of the first annual Transformer Fest in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, author, producer, and comedian Josh Gondelman will headline Flat Burger Society's Comedy Grotto.
Josh Gondelman is a writer and comedian who incubated in Boston before moving to New York City, where he currently lives and most recently worked as the head writer and an executive producer for Desus & Mero on Showtime. Previously, he spent five years at Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, where he earned four Emmy Awards, two Peabody Awards, and three WGA Awards. His debut standup special People Pleaser is available to stream now. In 2016, Josh made his late night standup debut on Conan (TBS), and he has also performed on Late Night With Seth Meyers (NBC) and The Late Late Show with James Corden (CBS).
Gondelman is also the author of the essay collection Nice Try: Stories of Best Intentions and Mixed Results published September 2019 by Harper Perennial. As of 2019, he has become a regular panelist on NPR mainstay Wait Wait Dont Tell Me. In Spring 2020, Gondelman launched his own podcast Make My Day, a comedy game show. And, if you remember this far back, he was the co-creator of the popular Modern Seinfeld Twitter account.
Onstage, Josh charms audiences using his good-natured storytelling and cracks them up with his sharp, pointy wit. He takes topics from surprise parties to his experience teaching preschool and makes them all equally hilarious. Josh's album Dancing On a Weeknight came out in 2019 on Blonde Medicine Records. (His prior album Physical Whisper debuted in March of 2016 at #1 on the iTunes comedy charts (as well as #4 on the Billboard comedy chart) and stayed there for well longer than he expected, honestly.) Joshn's most recent comedy special, People Pleaser, was released this summer to critical acclaim, and is available for streaming on most platforms.
Offstage, Gondelman is also the co-author (along with Joe Berkowitz) of the book You Blew It, published October 2015 by Plume. His writing has also appeared in prestigious publications such as McSweeneys Internet Tendency, New York Magazine, and The New Yorker.
Additionally, Josh has 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.
The Comedy Grotto show also includes a feature act, and a host to make up nearly 2 hours of comedy entertainment! Patrons are encouraged to buy tickets in advance to guarantee seating at the show. Lineup subject to change without notice.
