Judah Friedlander is a regular on NBC's 30 Rock and the author of How To Beat Up Anybody. He is the World Champion.

Judah joined us on our live show at WNYC to discuss the differences between a Yeti, a Sasquatch and a Bigfoot (and how to beat up all three). He also delineated his strategies for fighting groups of people and even groups of strippers.

When Friedlander's not beating people up, he plays writer Frank Rossitano on 30 Rock. He's had a long and successful career on stage as a standup comic, and his film roles include an acclaimed turn as the Original Nerd, Toby in "American Splendor."


Friedlander = unfunny, mean

Am I the only one who finds Judah Friedlander not only unfunny, but kind of dismissive to Jesse?

This isn't a flame or a troll--I just hate it when TSOYA guests try to 'big time' you, Jesse!

I'm sure you are too nice to say so, but I, for one, think Judah Friedlander's a jackass. I'm not going to buy his book, that's for sure.

We might be talking about the difference between Judah Friedlander the person and Judah Friedlander the character... :)
