Josh Gondelman has been on one hell of a hot streak the past two weeks. The Last Week Tonight with John Oliver writer’s new album, Physical Whisper, was number one on iTunes for comedy for a week, made number four on the Billboard Comedy Album charts, and hit number five on Billboard’s Heatseekers: Northeast Region. He also made his late-night stand-up debut with a fine performance on Conan (see below), and oh yeah, he got engaged.
I spoke with Gondelman in November to preview his album taping for the Boston Globe, and we talked about his “nice guy” reputation. He is this week’s Interview Flashback.
