Born on March 16, 1969, in Gaithersburg, Maryland, Judah Friedlander performed standup comedy for the first time as a student at New York University (NYU). He was 19 years old, but that first bold step has led to a lifetime of acting performing stand-up comedy.
Because of his start in New York City, Judah has always considered performing his stand-up routines at comedy clubs in NYC his first, true love. In fact, while keeping up with his role on 30 Rock, he would break away from the studio and perform improv at a variety of NYC comedy clubs.
One of Judah’s favorite comedic themes is proclaiming his title as “World Champion”. He’ll make sure everyone is fully aware of his title verbally during his performances, and for those who are hearing impaired, he has it written on his shirt and a variety of trucker hats that make up his stand-up ensemble.
