He is known as The World Champ, actor, comedian Judah Friedlander is AWESOME. Not only is he a excellent comedian, actor, he’s the world champ of the world. Judah can be seen nightly performing at most of the local comedy clubs in NYC.

Judah is mainly known for his role on the NBC hit 30 Rock where he played the character of Frank Rossitano. As well as such films as Wet Hot, American Summerer, American Splendor, and The Wrestler. Though before all the film fame he was a hard working stand up comic, and he quickly became one of my favorites. The first time I saw Judah perform was back in 2001 at Comic Strip Live on the Upper East Side, when I first started to promote stand up comedy.
