Many folks will recognize Judah Friedlander from his role as Frank, the unkempt joke writer on 30 Rock. Or perhaps they've seen him rubbernecking pop culture on Best Week Ever. Or they know him from small parts in films like American Splendor and Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever. Okay, they probably don't know him from that last one. Regardless, he's that guy who rocks big glasses and trucker hats with special messages on them. He's also a regular headliner at comedy clubs in Los Angeles, New York City, and Boston, where he loves to expound on his many virtues, which include being a world champion in soccer and an expert in karate (he authored How to Beat Up Anybody: An Instructional and Inspirational Karate Book by the World Champion in 2010). Yes, much like John Hodgman's random trivia and tall tales, these amazing feats and bits of information are purely fabricated. But they sure do make for good schtick. 18+.
