Comedian, actor, and writer Josh Wolf has become one of the most sought after personalities in comedy today. From
adding his quick witted commentary on comedy round tables, to becoming a New York Times Bestselling Author, writing
on hit television shows, and headlining stand up comedy tours across the nation, Wolf has proved time and time again he
is one of the most dynamic and multi-faceted comedians in the entertainment business. In 2013, Wolf hosted “Shark After
Dark” which aired during the ultra-popular “Shark Week” on The Discovery Channel and it consistently beat out all other
late night talkers in the ratings. This led to Wolf being cast as the host of the upcoming Discovery late night series “Naked
After Dark” [spring 2014]. The show will immediately follow airings of their hit series “Naked and Afraid,” recapping each
episode and featuring celebrity guests, and in studio stunts. In addition to his work on The Discovery Channel, Wolf is
currently a regular round table guest and writer on the hit E! series “Chelsea Lately,” and recently appeared as a
performer on the new E! series “After Lately.” In March 2013, Wolf debuted his latest book, “It Takes Balls: Dating Single
Moms and Other Confessions from an Unprepared Single Dad” [Grand Central Publishing.] Funny and brutally honest,
the book detailed Wolf’s adventures as a struggling stand up comedian, while juggling being a single parent in Los
Born in Boston, Massachusetts and raised in Amherst- Wolf had a love for comedy and making people laugh from an
early age. As a teenager, he took to the stage in the Boston area, performing his first stand up show when he was 15
years old. By the time he was in his mid-twenties, he was ready for a fresh start, and moved to Seattle, Washington in
hopes of expanding his comedy career. He was able to get more stage time and practice in the comedy world, as indie
musicians were dominating Seattle’s live entertainment scene. When he was 28, Wolf decided to make the move to Los
Angeles. After several years in Seattle he had made his mark in the local comedy circuit, and wanted to play with the big
boys of comedy. He quickly discovered it wasn’t any easier being a small fish in a saturated comedy pond, than a big fish
in the entertainment pond of a port city.
In 1999, Wolf got his first big break, performing a one man show at the HBO Workspace- which landed him a talent deal at
20th Century Fox, and a deal for his own television series with ABC. A deal with NBC soon followed. While testing the
waters on the television front, Wolf began writing for TV, and quickly found it was another aspect of the entertainment
business that he loved. He wrote on numerous sitcoms including “Yes, Dear,” Will Smith’s “All of Us,” and “Cuts,” starring
Shannon Elizabeth. He soon decided he wanted to dedicate all his time to writing, and stepped down from stand up, and
appearing on camera.
In 2006 Wolf returned to television, appearing on the fourth season of NBC’s “Last Comic Standing.” This also marked his
return to sitcoms, recurring on the hit series “My Name Is Earl” from 2006-09, and recurring and writing for “Raising Hope”
in 2010-11. 2009 was also a banner year for Wolf, as he started making regular appearances on Chelsea Handler’s hit E!
television series “Chelsea Lately,” and he toured nationwide with stand up comedy sensation Larry the Cable Guy. Wolf
also found a way to tap into his passion for sports, and hosted two seasons of “The College Experiment,” a comedic
weekly online college sports show for Fox Sports. In 2011 Wolf ended his touring with Larry the Cable Guy, and
committed to appearing on “Chelsea Lately” once a week, while in conjunction writing for the show. He also became a
New York Times Bestselling Author, for his contributions to Chelsea Handler’s bestselling book “Lies that Chelsea Hander
In 2012, Wolf landed a book deal with Grand Central Publishing to pen his first book written solo, “It Takes Balls: Dating
Single Moms and Other Confessions from an Underprepared Single Dad.” He also recently wrote a screenplay feature for
Adam Sandler’s production company, Happy Madison. In addition to his work on “Chelsea Lately,” his stand up comedy
tours, and his book, Wolf also works on a podcast with fellow “Chelsea Lately” round table member, Ross Mathews.
Airing on The Road Hop Network, “Josh and Ross” showcases the guys sharing their unique view on pop culture and the
news of the day.
Wolf currently lives in the Los Angeles area with his wife Beth. In his down time, he loves to hang out with his wife and
kids, Trevor, Kaitlynn, and Jacob. On the charity front, Wolf has a passion for supporting the troops & actively participates
with various organizations.
