He was brought up Catholic and went to the all-boys Roman Catholic Junpero Serra High School and University of California, Berkeley, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in English in 1987.
After graduating from college, Gutfeld worked as R. Emmett Tyrrell’s assistant at The American Spectator.
Later, he had positions as an editor for several Rodale Press journals as well as a staff writer for Prevention magazine.
He joined Men’s Health as a staff writer in 1995. In 1999, he received a promotion to editor-in-chief of Men’s Health. He was replaced by David Zinczenko a year later.
Then Gutfeld was appointed chief editor of Stuff, which was then a Dennis Publishing publication. Circulation rose from 750,000 to 1.2 million during his leadership.
In 2003, Gutfeld paid several dwarfs to attend a Magazine Publishers of America meeting on the subject of “buzz,” with the directive to be as obnoxious and loud as possible.
Gutfeld was sacked from Dennis Publishing shortly after the publicity-generating prank, and he later became the company’s head of “brain development.”
From 2004 to 2006, he served as the British editor of the company’s Maxim magazine. Due to readership declines during his term, Gutfeld’s contract was not renewed and it ended.
From the beginning of The Huffington Post in 2005 until October 2008, Gutfeld was one of the first poster contributors.
He frequently singled out Deepak Chopra, Cenk Uygur, and Arianna Huffington as targets in his commentary.
Gutfeld was ranked as the 12th most influential figure in American media by the website Mediaite in late 2021.
