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

--Dave Attell

--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
