    Dana Gould

    Comedy

    I was born and raised in the ironically-named town of Hopedale Mass. I started performing stand-up comedy at the tender age of 17. As a performer I was too young to be any good. As a person I was socially inept and looked weird. Let’s skip ahead! I moved to Los Angeles in the halcyon days of “The Comedy Boom” and in quick succession I performed in several HBO specials numerous appearances on Conan and Letterman. I recorded the CD Funhouse which was called "a comedy CD" by Billboard magazine and an actor appeared on Seinfeld The Ben Stiller Show and the series "Working" (which wasn’t and was soon cancelled). After writing the pilot "World On A String" (with Jay Kogen) I co-created MTV’s late lamented Super Adventure Team (with Rob Cohen). I then joined the staff of The Simpsons where I squatted for seven years. Stand up remains a big part of my career and I continue to perform regularly. I recently appeared in the film "The Aristocrats". and am preparing to record my next stand-up CD. I live in Los Angeles with my wife and a bunch of kids and dogs several of them ours.

    After arriving in Los Angeles Mary Lynn was cast on David Cross and Bob Odenkirk’s critically acclaimed HBO sketch comedy Series Mr. Show with Bob and David. Quickly thereafter she joined HBO’s The Larry Sanders Show. In addition to 24 her recent episodic work includes It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia Flight of the Conchords Raising Hope and Modern Family.

    Mary Lynn’s big screen credits include Julie and Julia with Meryl Streep and Amy Adams Firewall opposite Harrison Ford Legally Blonde II: Red White and Blonde Sweet Home Alabama Dude Where’s My Car and Roadtrip.
