Frank from '30 Rock' coming to TC

Judah Friedlander to do two shows at Comedy festival this weekend

TRAVERSE CITY — Judah Friedlander, baseball cap-wearing wise-cracking comedy writer Frank Rossitano from NBC’s “30 Rock,” will do two shows at the Traverse City Winter Comedy Arts Festival, organizers announced Tuesday.

Friedlander, who’s appeared in more than 30 films and hundreds of TV shows, won an Independent Spirit Award for his role in the Sundance award-winner, “American Splendor.” He’s been in “Meet the Parents,” “Zoolander” and “The Wrestler.”

Meanwhile, he’s been honing his stand-up act since 1989. His instructional karate book, “How to Beat Up Anybody,” is based on his stand-up material.

Friedlander will do a solo show at the Opera House on Friday, Feb. 15, and a joint show with Todd Barry and Ian Edwards on Saturday, Feb. 16. Both are at 10:30 p.m.
