Comedian Judah Friedlander is expanding upon the ideas he presented in his Netflix special on his current U.S. tour — a politically charged night of stand-up dubbed the “Future President” tour.

Performing tonight at St. Andrew’s Hall in downtown Detroit, the former “30 Rock” star will bring to the Motor City, for his first Detroit tour date ever, a unique perspective on issues normally viewed as too combative to bring up at the dinner table around your family.

Friedlander arrived at the WDET studios for his CultureShift interview with his mom Shirley, who was traveling with him on a handful of dates.

Judah Friedlander will perform on Thursday, December 5th at St. Andrew’s Hall in Detroit. Michigan comedian Robert Jenkins will open. Tickets are available here.
