. During his appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert
last year, Gulman joked about the hardships of doing laundry, the difference between “waking up” and “getting up” in the morning and his unique way of eating a pint of ice cream (“Fork prints in ice cream are evidence of a life in chaos”). His latest comedy special, 2016’s It’s About Time
, is currently available on Netflix. Earlier this year, Gulman played a fictional version of himself on comedian Pete Holmes’ HBO series Crashing
