Last month, veteran standup Dana Gould released his newest standup special and album, I Know It’s Wrong. Debuting at number one on iTunes in comedy, the album is his first since 1998. Gould took this hiatus from extended standup to serve as a writer and producer for The Simpsons for seven years. Now, he’s busier than ever, with his podcast, The Dana Gould Hour, pilot projects, acting, and, of course, standup.
I got the chance to talk with Gould about his special, the podcast audience, and being a “comedian’s comedian.”
