proved time and time again he is one of the most dynamic and multi-faceted comedians in the entertainment
business. Wolf is currently a regular round table guest and writer on the hit E! series “Chelsea Lately,” as well
as a performer on the new E! series “After Lately.” In March 2013, Wolf will debut his latest book, “It Takes

while juggling being a single parent in Los Angeles.
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
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 Told Me.”
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.entertainment.
