Judah Friedlander is known to audiences as one of the most original stand-up comedians. Seeing Judah perform live is always a unique experience. You will never see him do the same show twice. He started doing stand-up in 1989 and has been doing it just about every night ever since. Even though Judah has made over 30 movies and appeared in hundreds of TV shows - stand-up comedy is Judah’s priority and specialty. He is not an actor who does stand-up on the side. He’s a stand-up comedian who acts on the side and has made multiple appearances on many late night talk shows including: Late Show with David Letterman, Conan, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and The Daily Show.
Read Judah's interview in this week's Chicago RedEye.
NOTABLE TELEVISION AND FILM APPEARANCES:
- 30 Rock
- Meet The Parents
- Wet Hot American Summer
- American Splendor
Judah’s instructional karate book How To Beat Up Anybody is based on his stand-up act and he sells and signs it after shows. He usually hangs around after shows to meet guests, so stick around and snap a picture!
