0000_word-forte-mchale

Press Release:

WORD Bookstores and Friends of the Loew’s is very excited to invite Jersey City and beyond to a night of laughter, books, and everything in between with comedians and authors Joel McHale and Will Forte on Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 8:00 PM. Tickets available at the link…

For years, Joel McHale’s stand-up performances have sold out venues across the country, and his role in the beloved cult series Community and as the host of E!’s The Soup have made him a household name in comedy and pop culture. This October, not only is Joel starring in CBS’s new series The Great Indoors, he will also bring his razor-sharp wit to book form with the release of THANKS FOR THE MONEY: How to Use My Life Story to Become the Best Joel McHale You Can Be.

You probably know Will Forte best as the creator and Emmy-nominated star of the critically-acclaimed FOX-TV’s hit Last Man on Earth, the lead in the cult-classic movie MacGruber, or as one of your favorite Saturday Night Live alums. But long before he became a famous comedian, a single, twenty-four-year-old Forte found his true purpose in life: giving men dating advice. This August, Forte, a forty-six-year-old bachelor, finally delivered his illustrated magnum opus, the master dating “guidebook” 101 THINGS TO DEFINITELY NOT DO IF YOU WANT TO GET A CHICK.

Join WORD Bookstore at Loew’s Jersey Theatre in celebration of the release of THANKS FOR THE MONEY and 101 THINGS TO DEFINITELY NOT DO IF YOU WANT TO GET A CHICK, as Joel and Will take the stage together for a bit of conversation and a lot of comedy.

Each ticket guarantees admission to the event as well as 1 copy of THANKS FOR THE MONEY and 1 copy of 101 THINGS TO DEFINITELY NOT DO IF YOU WANT TO GET A CHICK!

In addition, ever the community advocates and strong supporters of local public arts programming, Joel and Will are thrilled that $3 of each ticket sold will go directly to our friends and Jersey City arts space staple, Friends of the Loews/Loew’s Jersey Theatre.

Joel McHale is an actor, comedian, amateur knife enthusiast, and television host who starred on the acclaimed sitcom Community, the pop culture-skewering series The Soup, and the revival of The X-Files. He currently stars on the CBS series The Great Indoors – his most high-profile role since a breakout performance as Quicky the Clown on USA Network’s The Huntress. McHale has appeared in the movies Ted, Blended, Deliver Us From Evil, and The Informant!, and hosted the 2014 White House Correspondents’ Dinner. Born in Rome and raised in Seattle, McHale lives in Los Angeles with his wife, two sons, and many dangerous edged weapons.

Will Forte is an award-winning American actor, comedian, writer, producer and voice actor. He is best known for his work in television as a cast member on “Saturday Night Live”, and as the creator and star of the sitcom “The Last Man on Earth.” The drawings in 101 THINGS TO DEFINITELY NOT DO IF YOU WANT TO GET A CHICK landed him his first-ever TV writing gig on the Jenny McCarthy sketch show on MTV and then, later, landed him at “The Late Show with David Letterman.” So, they’re not ALL fun and games, just mostly.

SF – Judah Friedlander Performs

00judah_Freidlander

Judah Friedlander presents his book of cartoons and performs stand-up at the Brava Theater on Friday, January 22, 2016 at 7:30 PM!

On the comedy stage, Judah Friedlander is The World Champion. He is the best athlete in the world, greatest martial artist, the sexual desire of every woman, and a role model to children. Let’s face it, Judah is the greatest comedian in the world… And the most humble. Judah is an extra-dark black belt in karate.

Judah is known to comics & audiences as one of the funniest and most original stand-up comedians. Seeing Judah perform live is always a unique experience. He always has new jokes & he plays off the audience making up jokes on the spot. You will never see Judah do the same show twice. Because Judah is so awesome, he’s also one of the most copied comedians. But a copy is never as good as the original. And no one can top The World Champion.

Judah started doing stand-up in 1989 and has been doing it just about every night ever since. Even though Judah has made over 30 movies & appeared in hundreds of TV shows – stand-up comedy is Judah’s priority and specialty. He is not an actor who does stand-up on the side. He’s a stand-up comedian who acts on the side.

You can watch Judah as “Frank Rossitano” on the Emmy-winning “30 Rock” every night in syndication & on Comedy Central.

Judah has made multiple hilarious appearances on many late night talk shows including: Letterman, Conan, Fallon & The Daily Show.

Judah was nominated for Best Supporting Actor at the 2003 Independent Spirit Awards for his role in the Sundance-winning “American Splendor”. Some of his other movies include “Meet the Parents”, “Wet Hot American Summer”, “Feast”, “Zoolander”, and “The Wrestler”.

Judah’s hilarious instructional karate book “How To Beat Up Anybody” is based on his stand-up act, but with all brand new material. He sells & signs it after shows. Judah does meet & greets after every show. Judah does not charge for photos. So, you don’t have to ask Judah if it’s ok to take a photo – you can take one with him, and it’ll be the sexiest photo you’ve ever seen.

Next year Judah will be coming out with both a stand-up album and stand-up concert movie.

With an opening set by Amy Miller (“Last Comic Standing”)

$25 All Ages tickets available now…

Presented by SF Sketchfest.

00 If the Raindrops United

Judah Friedlander appears at the Skylight Books on Friday, November 13, 2015 at 7:30 PM to sign his new book of cartoons!

You know Judah Friedlander from his role as Frank Rossitano on 30 Rock as well as his roles in acclaimed films like Wet Hot American Summer, American Splendor, and The Wrestler. But long before he became a stand-up comic and actor, Friedlander drew stuff. If The Raindrops United is a collection of hilarious and surprisingly profound drawings and comics that shows a new side of Friedlander’s “terrifically entertaining” (New York Times) comedy and marks a milestone in the career of one of America’s most inventive comedians.

Hailed by Tina Fey as “one of the all-time great weirdos,” Judah’s drawings and cartoons push boundaries, exploring absurdities from American life and sex to 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 laugh-out-loud funny, thought-provoking, and conversation-starting.

Judah Friedlander was a series regular on NBC’s Emmy Award-winning hit show 30 Rock for seven seasons (SAG Award for Best Ensemble). He won international acclaim for his portrayal of Toby Radloff in the award-winning movie American Splendor. He is the author of the bestselling instructional karate book How To Beat Up Anybody, featuring his photography and artwork. Friedlander is featured in Netflix’s just-released Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, and his upcoming projects include a new comedy album and a stand-up documentary concert film. He will be a series regular on FOX’s 2016 primetime animated series Bordertown from executive producer Seth MacFarlane. You can follow Judah Friedlander on twitter at @JudahWorldChamp.
