Dana Gould

Dana Gould wrote for The Simpsons for seven golden years. He’s one of the few stand-up comics to have had such a long tenure, but anyone who has seen his comedy can understand why. If you haven’t had the pleasure of seeing Dana perform live, you can approximate the experience with Let Me Put My Thoughts in You, his debut DVD. He is also featured in I Am Comic, The Aristocrats, and Comedians of Comedy: Live at the Troubadour.
