Judah Friedlander: Future President world tour

Judah Friedlander is a unique and versatile performer that audiences from all over the world of all different backgrounds love. He has won awards and accolades as both a comedic actor and dramatic actor. He has been in hundreds of television shows and more than 40 feature films. For acting roles, he has often changed his appearance and voice so much that he is unrecognizable.

His 84-minute stand-up comedy performance film, "America Is the Greatest Country In the United States" -- which he independently produced, directed, edited, wrote, and performed -- won rave reviews, with many critics and fans calling it the best of the year, the best of the last 10 years, and the best they've ever seen. It is a unique, dynamic, and hilarious 84 minutes of non-stop jokes with profound satire on the state of the world.

Judah has also authored two books: the hilarious instructional karate book "How To Beat Up Anybody," and "If the Raindrops United," a collection of his drawings and cartoons.

In 2020, Judah will be making and releasing a new feature-length stand-up performance film, and releasing a stand-up comedy album with all different material. Throughout 2019 and 2020, Judah is on a world tour called "Future President" with all new material.

Fresh from his critically acclaimed 84-minute stand-up performance film "America Is the Greatest Country In the United States" (Netflix, 2017), Judah Friedlander makes his return to the DC Improv as part of his Future President world tour.

Featuring all new material, Judah's new show is hilarious, profound satire on America, the world, and all its human rights issues. With crazy dead-pan one-liners and uproariously engaging, innovative crowd work, Judah will tell you why he should be the future President of the United States -- and will invite you to ask him questions about his Presidential platform. As a comedian, Judah is anti-establishment, never preachy, and unlike anyone you've seen.

In addition to his 30-year stand-up career, Judah has acted in more than 30 films, including his acclaimed performance in "American Splendor," plus roles in "The Wrestler" and "Meet the Parents." His hundreds of TV appearances include 7 seasons on the multiple Emmy-award-winning "30 Rock." Judah has made two books: the instructional and inspirational karate book "How To Beat Up Anybody," and his book of cartoons and drawings, "If the Raindrops United."

Don't miss these four Washington DC appearances from a master comic at the top of his game.
