Each episode of the show follows Leonard’s search for a backup job, just in case the one he has doesn’t work out. The pilot is produced by Triage Entertainment. Executive producers are Stu Schreiberg, Judi Brown-Marmel and Reg Tigerman of Levity Entertainment Group." Deadline.com

Judah Friedlander was born on March 16, 1969 in Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA. He is an actor, known for 30 Rock (2006), The Wrestler (2008) and Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015). I'm a comedian. I do mostly mainstream rooms and I do alternative rooms too, and I don't change my act at all. I'll do black rooms, I'll do Latino rooms. I've done gay rooms, I've done Asian nights, and I'll always just do my thing. I try to make my act so it works for everybody. It's not exclusionary. I'm not in any clique. I'm an outsider. I'm a comedian for the people. I'm not big on preachy. If I'm sending out any message, I like people to find it. I don't like to shove it down their throats. So my act's changed over the year, but it's certainly a comment on just how self-involved many people are.

I’m often a guest on my friends’ podcasts, can be heard on the Bob and Tom show, and am half of the sketch group “See You Next Tuesday.”
