Biography

Dana Gould (born August 24, 1964) is an American comedian and comedy writer born and raised in Hopedale, Massachusetts. His upbringing in the “weird little” factory town and the backward eccentricities of his extended family lent themselves to his stand-up routine, which has been seen on HBO, Showtime, and Comedy Central, among other places. After high school, he studied communications and theatre at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. He eventually moved to San Francisco to pursue a career in comedy. It was there he, along with fellow comedian Alex Reid, founded the San Francisco Comedy Condo in 1986. He now lives in Los Angeles, California.

Gould has written and performed on The Ben Stiller Show; one such sketch features Gould as Otto, Cupid’s twisted brother, whose arrows convince a young man to fall madly in love with an elderly woman. Another series of sketches features a heavily disguised Gould as Wilford Brimley advertising “Grady’s Oats” (a parody of Brimley’s Quaker Oats advertisements). In one, he speaks of his hobby of dressing in a taffeta gown and filling his panties with oatmeal; in another, he brandishes a revolver through the window at children.

Gould had a featured cameo in the 2003 film Girls Will Be Girls, in which he played a hit-and-run victim who admits to his alcohol problem after having a desperate one-night stand with aging C-list actress Evie Harris, the other driver in the car accident.
