On the comedy stage, Judah Friedlander is The World Champion. He is the best athlete in the world, greatest martial artist, the sexual desire of every woman, and a role model to children. Let’s face it, Judah is the greatest comedian in the world… And the most humble. Judah is an extra-dark blackbelt in karate.
Judah is known to comics & audiences as one of the funniest and most original stand-up comedians. Seeing Judah perform live is always a unique experience. He always has new jokes & he plays off the audience making up jokes on the spot. You will never see Judah do the same show twice. Because Judah is so awesome, he’s also one of the most copied comedians. But a copy is never as good as the original. And no one can top The World Champion.
Judah’s hilarious instructional karate book “How To Beat Up Anybody” is based on his stand-up act, but with all brand new material. He sells & signs it after shows. Judah does meet & greets after every show. Judah does not charge for photos. So, you don’t have to ask Judah if it’s ok to take a photo – you can take one with him, and it’ll be the sexiest photo you’ve ever seen.
Judah Friedlander’s current political stance can be summed up by the title of his new special, America Is the Greatest Country in the United States. Available today on Netflix, the bare bones, documentary-style comedy film follows the comic over the course of several shows as he addresses American exceptionalism and the many troubling issues currently facing the United States. Friedlander – who wrote, directed, and produced the special himself – employs his usual crowd work to create an insightful and hilarious dialogue with the audience about racism, climate change, fascism, health care, and human rights
