In a 2012 interview with “City Pages,” he stated, “My two biggest goals right now are to release my own double album of stand-up, and to put out my own stand-up concert DVD.

Judah has spent most of his career living in New York City, and in 2013, he revealed that he had been sleeping on an air mattress for months because his Queens apartment had “mold and musty problems” and he didn’t want to contaminate a regular mattress and move it to a “new apartment that’s not polluted.” Friedlander has said that his favorite sports are ping-pong and soccer. He played ping-pong competitively as a child, then got back into it while he was starring in “30 Rock.” Judah told “The Hollywood Reporter” in 2012, “When I can, I play official tournaments sanctioned by USATT.org. And I play ping-pong several times a week even though I don’t own a table. It’s fun, relaxing and great exercise. And it’s not showbizzy. I like hanging out at non-showbizzy places. I travel with my ping-pong paddle.” He is a supporter of the soccer team the New York Red Bulls, and he’s a fan of professional wrestling.
