30 Rock all business, no party, says Judah Friedlander

On a show like 30 Rock with a boss like Tina Fey, you’d think the set wouldn’t be anything other than a non-stop goof fest. You know, a laugh-every-30-seconds-with-your-hilarious-and-famous-co-workers kind of deal.

Surprisingly, Judah Friedlander says it was just the opposite; both the show and its producers were all business, all the time.

“That show is so heavily and specifically written with its dialogue and plot twists and everything, it was kind of like precision acting”, said Friedlander, who’s worked as a stand-up comic since 1989.

On producers Tina Fey and Robert Carlock:

“They were really the masters and everyone else was the puppets, the clay that they were molding,” Friedlander said.
