Little Things Get Big.

Sometimes all it takes is one little thing. Back in 2012 comedian Josh Gondelman, whose birthday is today, co-created the Twitter account @SeinfeldToday which has spawned dozens of imitators. This is not to say that he stopped there, of course. He performs regularly. One of his life performances was featured on the Bullseye With Jesse Thorn podcast as part of the End of Year 2017 Comedy Special. He has a story about how he had what may be the most memorable wedding reception ever, and that’s all I’m gonna say.
And these are only steps in a career that’s been steadily rising. He’s had articles published in McSweeney’s and other publications,  and since 2014 he’s been a writer for John Oliver Tonight.
Yeah, I guess now that I think about it that’s a lot of little things adding up to a lot.

    This little post had a big effect on me: I watched the video and listened to the whole Bullseye podcast. Thanks, Chris.

      I’m so glad you enjoyed the Bullseye podcast. Their year-end comedy wrap-ups are always enjoyable and you heard many comics I hope to be featuring here in the coming months. As an added bonus you also now know the temperature for deep-frying catfish.

      Well, there are worse things I could hook people on. Anyway I’m always glad to be able to highlight funny people.
