GREENWICH, Conn. -- Comedian Josh Gondelman, an award-winning writer for HBO’s Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, will visit Temple Sholom in Greenwich on Saturday, March 11 for a night of laughter and fun.
The event costs cost $25 per adult and includes cocktails and nosh at 7 p.m.followed by the cabaret-style show at 7:30 p.m.
Gondelman, who moved from Boston to New York in 2011 to pursue stand-up comedy, has a reputation of charming audiences with his good-natured storytelling and his variety of topics, ranging from surprise parties to teaching preschool.
His first big break came in 2012 after launching the Twitter account @SeinfeldToday, alongside writer Jack Moore of Buzzfeed. The account, which posted humorous tweets about Larry David’s Seinfeld characters living in the social media era, won a Shorty Award in the “#FakeAccount” category in 2014.
This success led him to submit his first-ever comedy packet to Last Week Tonight, where he was hired as a producer of original web content and later as a staff writer. In 2016, he won a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Series for his work on the show.
Gondelman has also been featured on Conan, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and Night Train with Wyatt Cenac.
