COMEDY LEGEND DANA GOULD SIGNS TO KILL ROCK STARS!
April 25, 2017Kill Rock Stars is proud to announce that we have signed legendary comedian and "Father of Alternative Comedy" Dana Gould. He will be taping his next stand-up comedy album on Wednesday, May 3rd at Columbia City Theater in Seattle, WA. Tickets are on sale now.
Dana Gould began his professional comedy career at the age of seventeen. Between Comedy Central, HBO and Showtime, Dana has six solo stand-up comedy specials to his credit, (and is currently preparing to film his seventh). He has appeared on THE LATE SHOW WITH DAVID LETTERMAN, JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE, CONAN, MARON and REAL TIME WITH BILL MAHER.
As an actor, Dana has had memorable turns on SEINFELD, PARKS AND REC and was a cast member of Frank Darabont’s 1940’s crime drama MOB CITY, as well as numerous roles in films, such as last year’s cult horror anthology SOUTHBOUND.
Dana was a writer/performer on the original BEN STILLER SHOW and maintains an equally active career as a writer. After creating the pilot WORLD ON A STRING (with Jay Kogen), he co-created MTV's late, lamented SUPER ADVENTURE TEAM with his old Ben Stiller office-mate Rob Cohen. Dana 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 REC. In 2016, Dana created the show STAN AGAINST EVIL, which he is currently writing and executive producing for IFC. In addition, he is currently developing a hour-long series based on the comic book series THE OCTOBER FACTION with that series’ creator, Steve Niles, as well as well as adapting Rod Serling’s early, original, draft of the PLANET OF THE APES screenplay as a graphic novel for Boom! Comics.
Despite all this, stand-up remains a focal point of Dana’s career, and he continues to perform regularly across the country. His monthly podcast, THE DANA GOULD HOUR, frequently resides in iTunes' top ten comedy downloads.
