Laughs Comedy Spot in Kirkland welcomes comedian Dana Gould on April 3-5. Gould began his professional comedy career at the age of 17, and spent the next 20 years or so performing in the halcyon days of “The Comedy Boom.” Gould has several HBO specials to his credit as well as guest appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Maron and Real Time with Bill Maher. He has also had appearances on Anger Management, Seinfeld and The Ben Stiller Show, and was a regular on the NBC series “Working."

After writing the pilot “World on a String," Gould co-created MTV’s late, lamented “Super Adventure Team” with Rob Cohen. He then joined the staff of The Simpsons, where he was a Co-Executive Producer and performed several voices for the show. He was also a producer on NBC’s “Parks and Recreation.” Last year he developed a comedy pilot for FX, executive producing with Dave Grohl. Gould is currently shooting The Morning Show pilot, co-hosting with Janet Varney and produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay for USA.

Gould appeared in the film “The Aristocrats,” and stand-up remains a big part of his career. He continues to perform regularly in and around Los Angeles.

His monthly podcast, The Dana Gould Hour, was an instant hit, frequently residing in iTunes' top ten comedy downloads. He most recently can be seen recurring in Frank Darabont’s show.

TIckets for the show are $15-20 with one 8:30 p.m. show in April 3, and 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. shows April 4-5.

For more information on the show call Laughs Comedy Spot at 425-823-6306.

Laughs is located at 12099 124th Ave. NE in Kirkland.
