Ask comedian Judah Friedlander to show you greatness, and he will gladly whip out his . . . World Champion trucker hat? With his masterfully crafted skills of one-upsmanship, Friedlander makes the rounds on the OC standup comedy circuit once again to cast his magnificent beer-bellied, sideburn-wearing shadow over Irvine. Most of you may recognize him from his regular appearances on 30 Rock or as another vaguely familiar celebrity in front of a green screen on Best Week Ever . But true Friedlander fans have also followed his career in such movies as American Splendor and Full Grown Men . Prepare to witness one of comedy's most recognizable characters. If nothing else, you'll learn one good lesson: Nothing tells people you're a world champion like a T-shirt that says you're a world champion.
