Josh Gondelman Aspires to Be a Streetwear Icon

Thanks to the coronavirus, comedians are now trapped at home like the rest of us, so we decided that while we’re all self-quarantining, we’d do something a little different from our usual “Follow Friday” column. Instead of interviewing up-and-coming comedians we love on Twitter, we’re going live on Instagram every week to check in on some of our favorite people in comedy to get a firsthand look into how they’re handling the pandemic. So welcome to our new version of the column, now titled “Follow (From a Safe Distance) Friday.”

This week, I virtually sat down with comedian, writer, and all-around sweetie Josh Gondelman (Desus & Mero, Last Week Tonight With John Oliver, all of our hearts) to chat about how he’s holding up in isolation. He showed us his sneakerhead side, broke down how he’s co-executive producing a late-night show while isolated from the rest of the cast and crew, and gave us a sneak peak into the luxurious life of his elderly pug Bizzy. He also detailed the nuances of perfecting your office fit when your office is also your living room: “It’s been business casual up top and casual casual on the bottom. I’ll wear a cardigan and a T-shirt over track pants.”
