A book of hilariousand ingenious comicdrawings from the popular30 Rockstar and "World Champion" comedianJudah Friedlander, hailed by Tina Fey as"one of the all-time great weirdos."

Most Americans know Judah Friedlander from his role as Frank Rossitano on30 Rockand from appearances in films likeAmerican SplendorandThe Wrestler. But long before he became a film and TV star and stand-up comic Friedlander drew stuff.
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 Unitedis a milestone in the career of one of America's most inventive comedians.

Praise forIf the Raindrops United:
"Judah has drawn a weird and funny book in the grand '70s tradition of B. Kliban! I think this book will probably fix the world."
--Tina Fey

"Some people meditate. Some people masturbate. But if you don't have the time or patience for either of those, I recommend reading If the Raindrops United to calm down, have a little laugh, or a big think."
--Susan Sarandon

"I've known Judah for many years and I still don't understand how his mind works, but it sure works. Seriously strange. Seriously funny. A National Treasure. Sadly, I need to get a restraining order against him."
--Paul Giamatti

"Judah thank you for writing a funny twisted book. It is such an easy read. Even dum dums like me can enjoy it!!! Buy this book."
--Dave Attell

"Judah's drawings are deceptively simple, yet they become more compelling with every page. His talent as an actor/writer/comedian is further conveyed in ANOTHER medium. He's a Quadruple Threat. He wears many hats. Literally."
--Janeane Garofalo

"Reading Judah Friedlander's new book is a lot like hanging out with Judah himself: occasionally baffling, frequently thought-provoking, but, most of all, consistently hilarious!"
--Mick Foley

"To compare Judah Friedlander to a great cartoonist like Jim Davis would be a compliment to Jim Davis."
--Wyatt Cenac

"Another hit from The World Champ tackling the signs and symbols you frequently question while dropping hot lava in your American Standard VorMax."
--Eddie Huang
