Comedy Night: Judah Friedlander w/ Pierre Bennu, Umar Khan
8PM – 11PM
Creative Alliance
3134 Eastern Ave, Baltimore
Gaithersburg, Maryland’s own Judah Friedlander is known to comics and audiences as one of the funniest and most original stand-up comedians. Probably most recognized as “Frank Rossitano” on the Emmy-winning “30 Rock,” Judah started doing stand-up in 1989 and has been doing it just about every night ever since. Even though he has made over 30 movies and has 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 and his deadpan, political astute comedy is spot on.

In this play-based workshop participants will explore the idea that a puppet is any performing object. By discovering character through physical exploration, we will play with objects as if they were toys as a technique for story-making. Each object has its own way of moving, communicating, and emoting. Puppeteers will work in groups to improvise scenes between their objects and present them at an informal class performance. Be prepared to move and make sound.
