Joseph Mande (born March 16, 1983) is an American stand-up comedian, writer and actor.

Early life

Mande was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico to Louis Mande, a lawyer, and Deborah Mande, a judge.[1]


Mande has appeared on such TV shows as Comedy Central's The Half Hour, VH1's Best Week Ever and Conan.[2]

Mande was a writer for the final three seasons of the NBC sitcom Parks and Recreation, also appearing in seven episodes as Pawnee resident Morris Lerpiss.[3] He has also written for the Comedy Central sketch series Kroll Show, and the Adult Swim series Delocated. He was a producer for the first season of Aziz Ansari's Netflix series Master of None and played Todd in James Franco's film The Disaster Artist. He writes for the NBC sitcom The Good Place, created by Parks and Recreation co-creator Mike Schur.[4]

Prior to its deletion [5], Mande was also known for his social media account on Twitter, where he claimed to have purchased many of his followers. [6] His often confrontational use of social media to troll celebrities, corporations, and political figures led to, among other things, a cease-and-desist letter from La Croix Sparkling Water.[7] [8]


Mande released his first comedy album, Bitchface, on March 14, 2014. The album is in the style of a mixtape with voicemail messages from Fabolous, Roy Hibbert, Jenny Slate, Nick Kroll, Aziz Ansari, The RZA and Amy Poehler.[9][10]
