Judah Friedlander
Judah Friedlander
Judah Friedlander is an American comedian and actor, known for his trademark trucker's hats, oversized glasses and unkempt appearance, which he retains in most of his screen roles.[1] On one episode of 30 Rock, however, he ditched the trucker's cap and shaved, consequently appearing drastically different.

Friedlander started in show business as a soundman on Chris Rock's short Who is Chris Rock?. Ten years later, Friedlander began working in front of the camera, with appearances on Lateline and roles in numerous feature film comedies including Meet the Parents, Zoolander and Full Grown Men. Friedlander's most noted movie role to date was in the film American Splendor, as Toby Radloff.[2] His first exposure to many was as "The Hug Guy" from the Dave Matthews Band 2001 video "Everyday".[2] He was also a series regular on VH1's Best Week Ever and currently on NBC's 30 Rock, on which he plays Frank Rossitano, one of the writers of TGS with Tracy Jordan, a spoof of Saturday Night Live. In every episode, Friedlander can be seen wearing a different slogan on his trademark hat, which he designs himself.[1] He also appeared in the 2008 comedy film Meet Dave.

Friedlander headlines at various standup comedy venues in New York and LA, including Caroline's. His best-known "schtick" is "The World Champion of the World", in which he makes outlandish claims of greatness.[3] For example, he claims on his website to have once scored 243 goals for Brazil in a single game of international soccer while refereeing the game.

Judah has a part in the Mickey Rourke movie The Wrestler.

Mark DeMayo
Mark DeMayo
2015 was a breakout year for actor/comedian Mark DeMayo. He appeared on Comedy Central’s The Nighty Show with Larry Wilmore. His solo show 20 & Out, about his career as a NYC Police Officer won rave reviews at the International Fringe Festival and he was hired by Emmy Award winning writer (Monk) Andy Breckman as a Police Consultant for his new murder mystery show for ABC.

Mark is a native New Yorker and has the accent to prove it. As Mark tells it, “I wanted to do Shakespeare, but I have this heavy New York accent, so I went to a speech therapist, a good one, she was a big shot, she worked with Meryl Streep, after two lessons she gave me my money back, she said couldn’t help me because I wasn’t practicing enough. I said I am practicing at home, but I can’t practice at work because I’m a NYC COP. I can’t yell, Thou art under arrest, at the bad guys, they’d laugh at me and walk away.

When not performing his stand-up comedy act or touring with his solo show 20 & Out, Mark writes an article entitled “Back in the Day” and produces a web- series “Off the Cuff” for the online publication newyorknatives.com.

Mark has also been featured on Gotham Comedy Live for AX’s.TV, Showtime’s WhiteBoyz in Da Hood, and on MTV and VH1
