Comedian and writer Josh Wolf has become one of the most sought-after personalities in comedy today. From hosting his own late-night comedy series to becoming a New York Times bestselling author and headlining stand-up comedy tours across the nation, Wolf has proved time and time again that he is one of the most dynamic and multi-faceted comedians in the entertainment business.

In 2006, Wolf appeared on the fourth season of NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” as well as recurring on the hit series “My Name Is Earl” from 2006-2009 and later recurring and writing for “Raising Hope” in 2010-2011. 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 writing for the show. He also became a bestselling author for his contributions to Chelsea Handler’s bestselling book “Lies that Chelsea Handler Told Me.”

Throughout 2013-2014, Wolf hosted “Shark After Dark,” which aired during the ultra-popular “Shark Week” on the Discovery Channel and consistently beat out all other late-night talkers in the ratings. This led to Wolf being cast as the host of the Discovery series “Naked After Dark.” The show immediately followed airings of the network’s hit series “Naked and Afraid,” recapping each episode and featuring celebrity guests and in-studio stunts.

He is also currently a recurring guest on ESPN’s “SportsNation.” Wolf may be best known, however, for his work as a round table guest and writer on E!’s “Chelsea Lately” and “After Lately” from 2007-2014.

Special Guest App is a Wilkes-Barre headquartered talent booking app founded by Los Angeles-based actor/comedian Damon Wayans, Jr., and local serial entrepreneur Kris Jones.
