Product description

Product Description

A book of hilarious and ingenious comic drawings from the popular 30 Rock star and "World Champion" comedian Judah Friedlander, hailed by Tina Fey as "one of the all-time great weirdos."

Most Americans know Judah Friedlander from his role as Frank Rossitano on 30 Rock and from appearances in films like American Splendor and The Wrestler. But long before he became a film and TV star and stand-up comic Friedlander drew stuff.
Now, in this quirky, hilarious, and surprisingly profound collection of drawings, Friedlander shows a new side to his "terrifically entertaining" (New York Times) comedy. Whether imagining George Washington in Las Vegas, plastic surgery for imperfect triangles, and the Keystone Pipeline as a sex act, Friedlander's "Joodles" push boundaries as they explore the absurdities of American life, sex, and even history and human rights. If the Raindrops United is a milestone in the career of one of America's most inventive comedians.

Praise for If the Raindrops United:
"Judah has drawn a weird and funny book in the grand '70s tradition of B. Kliban! I think this book will probably fix the world."
--Tina Fey

"Some people meditate. Some people masturbate. But if you don't have the time or patience for either of those, I recommend reading If the Raindrops United to calm down, have a little laugh, or a big think."
--Susan Sarandon

"I've known Judah for many years and I still don't understand how his mind works, but it sure works. Seriously strange. Seriously funny. A National Treasure. Sadly, I need to get a restraining order against him."
--Paul Giamatti

"Judah thank you for writing a funny twisted book. It is such an easy read. Even dum dums like me can enjoy it!!! Buy this book."
--Dave Attell

"Judah's drawings are deceptively simple, yet they become more compelling with every page. His talent as an actor/writer/comedian is further conveyed in ANOTHER medium. He's a Quadruple Threat. He wears many hats. Literally."
--Janeane Garofalo

"Reading Judah Friedlander's new book is a lot like hanging out with Judah himself: occasionally baffling, frequently thought-provoking, but, most of all, consistently hilarious!"
--Mick Foley

"To compare Judah Friedlander to a great cartoonist like Jim Davis would be a compliment to Jim Davis."
--Wyatt Cenac

"Another hit from The World Champ tackling the signs and symbols you frequently question while dropping hot lava in your American Standard VorMax."
--Eddie Huang

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Judah 15 December 2015
By Jedidiah K. - Published on Amazon.com

When you're the World Champion of the World sometimes words can't describe what's going on in your head. In that case just draw it. They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, well these drawings somehow are worth twice that.

When you need a break from life just pick up this book and flip through a few pages. On the day that I received it I found that I was already half way through when I told myself that I needed to take a break and save some for another day. It's not a book that I see myself reading more than once but is a good conversation piece for visitors. (some PG-13 content). Maybe I'll take advantage of the insert your own drawings pages in the back of the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book! Funny & thoughtful 16 December 2015
By Laura Garcia - Published on Amazon.com

I adore this book! It's a great present for that brainy/funny person in your life. I have it as a coffe table book and my friend always love it. The cartoons are thoughtful and even a little dark at times, but I enjoy the dose of reality with my humor; while its brainy, it's also super approachable, filled with social and historical commentary about stuff we all know about, nothing "cult" or "exclusively academic" about the subject matter.

5.0 out of 5 stars It was so much fun because you have no idea of what you'll find ... 12 November 2015

I just received this book in the mail and started reading as soon as I sat down on the couch until I was done. It was so much fun because you have no idea of what you'll find from one page to the next. Judah's humor ranges from thought provoking to pure silliness. I couldn't put it down! Totally recommend this book to anyone with a good sense of humor.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent winter read and a great gift for any fan of Judah and/or 30 Rock~! 14 December 2015

This book is adorable, frightening, insightful and guaranteed to make you think. I was not able to read it very well on the treadmill, so would suggest curling up with this one. An excellent winter read and a great gift for any fan of Judah and/or 30 Rock~! The humor is in the same vein. Someone needs a smile and this book will deliver it.
5.0 out of 5 stars The Champ is here. 20 March 2016

When I heard the Champion of the World illustrated a book I was like, "psssh-ah, no way". So, I purchased this book. But it's more than just a book. It's a novel ... it's a journey. It's a quest through the meta-physical realm. I'm not the same man now that I was at the beginning, but for that I thank Mr. Judah.
