A glimpse into the strange world of Josh and people like him who don’t suffer from mental disorders.

Episode notes

(takes a moment to secure tongue firmly in cheek)

It would be rude to make fun of Josh Gondelman just because he’s a little strange. Or not strange. Instead, we’re going to learn from Josh about his career, his life, and how, even though he’s very bad at dancing he does it anyway. Then our pal comedian Gary Gulman for a response to what we heard. Gary is arguably the king of depressed comedy, having taken off the issue in his special The Great Depresh.
