Gould’s homecoming no longer on hold

Since he left Boston for San Francisco in 1986, Dana Gould has carved out what most comedians would consider a dream career. He was a chief innovator at the inception of alternative comedy, wrote for the landmark sketch show “The Ben Stiller Show,” and wrote and produced for “The Simpsons.” He has a new Showtime special on the way and a role in the upcoming TNT drama “Mob City.”

After a very long absence, he returns to Boston Friday to co-headline a show with Matt Braunger at Great Scott in Allston.
