A stand-up comic and actor, Friedlander appeared in American Splendor and is best known for his work in 30 Rock. But he’s not just a multi-talented performer—Friedlander has written the karate primer, How to Beat Up Anybody, and he’s been drawing since he was a child. This collection of artwork and cartoons showcases the visual side of Friedlander’s wit and humor as he takes subjects both serious and silly to new heights of absurdity.
