You know Judah Friedlander from his role as Frank Rossitano on "30 Rock" and from appearances in films like "American Splendor" and "The Wrestler." But long before he became a celebrity and stand-up comic Friedlander drew stuff. Now, in this quirky, hilarious, and profound collection of drawings, Friedlander shows a new side to his "terrifically entertaining" (New York Times) comedy. Whether imagining George Washington in Las Vegas, plastic surgery for imperfect triangles, or the Keystone Pipeline as a sex act, Friedlander's "Joodles" push boundaries, exploring the absurdities of American life, sex, even history and human rights. IF THE RAINDROPS UNITED is a milestone in the career of one of America's most inventive comedians.
Judah Friedlander won international acclaim for his portrayal of Toby Radloff in the award-winning movie American Splendor. He was a series regular on the Emmy Award-winning 30 Rock for seven seasons (SAG Award for Best Ensemble). He can be seen in a cameo in Sharknado 2. He is the author of the bestselling instructional karate book How To Beat Up Anybody, featuring his photography and art work.
