"Confronting Racism Through Comedy" a Reelblack interview with Judah Friedlander

The fine folks at Reelblack conducted this great interview with the totally not black Judah Friedlander, primarily about how he confronts racism through comedy.  Good stuff...

Even though he is famous and stuff (I Googled him), I never heard of Judah Friedlander before a notification about this video landed in my email.  I'm not even sure why I started watching it, but I enjoyed it, so I thought I'd share.

The Sales pitch:

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.

Good stuff.  Feel  free to comment or whatever.
I'm back at the drawing board.

Samax Amen is a professional Content Developer, Illustrator and Cartoonist. He is the artist of many great comics you never heard of like Herman Heed, Champion of Children, The Brother and The World As You Know It. He even writes and draws his own comics, like Dare: The Adventures of Darius Davidson, Spontaneous, and Manchild when he gets around to it. Because making comics is hard and stuff, he started GhettoManga as a blog in 2006 and as a print magazine in 2008.
