Early life and education
Gisondo was born in Palm Beach County, Florida. His parents, Stacey and Ron, are ocean engineers. His last name comes from his paternal grandfather, who was Italian. His other three grandparents were Jewish. After he began working frequently, he was homeschooled for several years. He attended Milken Community High School in Los Angeles, graduating in 2014. In 2015, he began attending the University of Southern California's film school first full-time and then part-time before taking time off to work, but he says he plans to finish his education.
Gisondo began acting on television at the age of 6. At Southern California, his mother sent photos of him to talent agencies. This led to an immediate successful audition for a national Pizza Hut commercial. After two years of commercials and a few television episodes, the family decided to get more serious with his career. After his family moved to California in 2007, Gisondo resumed his acting career.
While filming Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb and spending his senior year at the Vancouver high school, Gisondo asked Ben Stiller and Robin Williams to help him film a "promposal" formally asking his girlfriend to senior prom. They filmed a three-minute comedy routine with Crystal the Monkey.
