HEROES CONVENTION was founded in 1982 by Shelton Drum, owner of Charlotte’s Heroes Aren’t Hard To Find comics shop. Since then the convention has become famous for its comics-first and family-friendly atmosphere, where fans can mingle directly with professionals and exhibitors. Boasting an incredible guest list built mainly on reputation and goodwill, HeroesCon is known nationwide as a “must” on the summer schedule, drawing fans, exhibitors, and creators from all over the world to the Charlotte Convention Center.
Join Paul Boocock (Jonas Venture, Sr.), Michael Sinterniklass (Dean Venture), Dana Snyder (The Alchemist) and James Urbaniak (Dr. Venture) for an afternoon of all-things Venture on Saturday, January 28th at 2:00 PM! Moderated by Dana Gould (“The Simpsons,” “Stan Against Evil”)

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”)
Presented by SF Sketchfest.

Judah Friedlander appears at Politics & Prose on Monday, November 30, 2015 at 7:00 PM to sign his new book of cartoons!
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.

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.

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.

Seth Kushner (SCHMUCK, Leaping Tall Buildings), a great comic writer, photographer and artist, and friend of Dean and us at JHU, has been diagnosed with Leukemia. As he awaits a marrow donor, we thought it would be a perfect time to host a bone marrow drive.
