Joe Mande to Write for 'Parks & Recreation'

At around 2:00pm today, Joe Mande announced via Tweet (check it out below) that he was hired as a writer on Parks & Recreation and he'll be moving to LA. This is big news for Joe, who has been a fixture of the New York comedy scene for years. When Mande was on WTF in January 2011, Maron speculated that writing was the natural path for him. He has since written on this season of Delocated and the yet to debut The Nick Show Kroll. The position will reunite Mande with his former college sketch group teammate Harris Wittels, who has been writing on Parks since the second season. Joining Megan Amram, Mande is the second Twitter rapscallion hired on Parks in the last month. You got a full season pick up, Parks & Recreation – Treat Yo Self (to more funny writers)!

         I'm kind of embarrassed that I forgot about them, too. So good.
