World champ and hat connoisseur Judah Friedlander will be performing Wednesday in Mcalister Auditorium.
As part of the tour for his latest book, “If the Raindrops United: Drawings and Cartoons,” Friedlander will grace Tulane with his enormous comedic presence. Best known for his role on “30 Rock” as the slobbish nerd Frank Rossitano and a rather eclectic film career, Friedlander lones himself to the class of comedy greats.
“If the Raindrops United” is a collections of drawings and comics Friedlander made himself. This is a departure from Friedlander’s traditional comedy style since he’s first and foremost a stand-up comic.
Friedlander’s style predominantly consists of his deadpan delivery of personal “facts.” In his stand-up he’s been known to declare himself master of karate, time traveler and future best president ever. Students can expect Friedlander to be his usual bizarre, and impressively stone-faced, self Wednesday night.
With primaries in full swing, Tulane should be in for a treat. Friedlander has never had issues pointing his styling towards the political realm. As a friend of Tina Fey, it’s highly unlikely Friedlander would miss such soft targets as Trump and Hillary, or fumble such a goldmine.
Any lover of “30 Rock” will be present Wednesday night, and honestly any comedy enthusiast not in attendance really lacks the right to hold such a title. For those unfamiliar with Friedlander’s work, if for no other reason go to see which hat he’s wearing.
