If the Raindrops United is a collection of hilarious and surprisingly profound drawings that show a new side to this acclaimed comedian’s zany and praised comedy.
About If Raindrops United:
“Judah has drawn a weird and funny book in the grand ‘70’s tradition of B. Kliban! I think this book will probably fix the world.”—Tina Fey
You know Judah Friedlander from his role as Frank Rossitano on 30 Rock and from critically acclaimed roles in films like American Splendor, The Wrestler, and even Sharknado 2. But long before he became a celebrity and stand-up comic, Friedlander drew stuff. If the Raindrops United is a collection of hilarious and surprisingly profound drawings that show a new side to comedian Judah Friedlander’s critically praised comedy and marks a milestone in the career of one of America’s most inventive comedians.
Judah Friedlander has been hailed by Tina Fey as “one of the all-time great weirdos.” His drawings and cartoons push boundaries, exploring absurdities of American life, sex, and even history and human rights. Whether imagining George Washington in Las Vegas, plastic surgery for imperfect triangles, or the Keystone Pipeline as a sex act, Friedlander’s riotous drawings in If the Raindrops United are simultaneously laugh-out-loud funny, thought-provoking, and conversation-starting.
