You know JUDAH FRIEDLANDER from his role as Frank Rossitano on 30 Rock as well as his roles in acclaimed films like Wet Hot American Summer, American Splendor, and The Wrestler. But long before he became a stand-up comic and actor, Friedlander drew stuff. His new book, IF THE RAINDROPS UNITED (Hachette Books) is a collection of hilarious and surprisingly profound drawings and comics that shows a new side of Friedlander's comedy and marks a milestone in the career of one of America's most inventive comedians. It is out tomorrow and Judah will be on tour in support -dates below & tickets at judahfriedlander.com
The dark humor/psychological thriller, DRAMA DOLLS, from acclaimed author, Jason Tanamor, is now available at http://www.amazon.com/Drama-Dolls-Suspenseful-Fast-paced-Exhilarating-ebook/dp/B0163GVZJY.
Hailed by Tina Fey as "one of the all-time great weirdos," Judah's drawings and cartoons push boundaries, exploring absurdities from American life and sex to history and human rights. Whether imagining George Washington in Las Vegas, plastic surgery for imperfect triangles, or the Keystone Pipeline as a sex act, Friedlander's riotous drawings in IF THE RAINDROPS UNITED are laugh-out-loud funny, thought-provoking, and conversation-starting.

Judah is likely most recognized for his role as the trucker-cap-wearing "Frank Rossitano" on 30 Rock. Of course, he has been a stand-up in NYC hitting stages almost nightly for years and he also has numerous additional TV and film roles including Zoolander, Meet the Parents, Letterman, Conan, Fallon and many more. Judah is also a champion ping-pong player and can be seen in all kinds of videos for Major League Soccer. His upcoming projects include a new comedy album and a stand-up documentary concert film. He will be a series regular on FOX's 2016 primetime animated series Bordertown from executive producer Seth MacFarlane.
Be sure to pick up ANONYMOUS, the novel that Publishers Weekly hailed as a "well-crafted piece of experimental, voyeuristic fiction..." and "a winning jumble of the gritty, the raw, and the grotesque," at http://www.amazon.com/thrilling-literary-horror-novel-ebook/dp/B008E71L36.
