NEW YORK, Nov. 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, the Mobile Marketing Association (MMA), the leading global trade association for the mobile industry, announced that Elon Gold, one of America's top comedians and a frequent "Tonight Show" guest, will entertain at the 2011 MMA Global Mobile Marketing Awards Gala on November 17th, at the SLS Hotel at Beverly Hills.
The MMA Mobile Marketing Awards for Innovation, Creativity and Leadership recognize the best-of-the-best in mobile marketing from across the globe.
Hilarious," "original," "incredibly talented" and "extremely handsome" are just a few of the terms Elon Gold uses to describe himself. As a Boston University student at the tender age of 19, the Boston Herald hailed Gold as "a comedy star on the rise." Five years later, Comedy Central selected him and three others (including Dave Chappelle) to be profiled in its "Pipeline" series of future comedy stars. Since then, Gold has established himself as one of the top comedians in the country, having appeared on numerous television shows, including several recent appearances on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno."
Gold is a regular on the hit TV series "Bones" and has appeared on series including "Glenn Martin, DDS", "The Mentalist", "Stacked" and "Chappelle's Show". He was a regular performer and writer on Dana Carvey's ABC sketch comedy series, star of the WB series "You're the One" and host of the Cable Ace Award-winning Nickelodeon series "Inside Eddie Johnson." Gold's career has taken a couple of dramatic turns with performances in the independent features "Restaurant" and "Origin of the Species", where he starred alongside Amanda Peet.
