John Hodgman is a writer, a comedian, author, and actor. He is also the host of the hit podcast, “Judge John Hodgman.”

Rolling Stone named the podcast one of the top comedy podcasts currently available. John is known for his mix of non-swearing comedy, pop culture references, and scathing reviews of our legal system.

Variety Playhouse will host a live taping of “Judge John Hodgman” Friday at 7 p.m. The author and former “Daily Show” correspondent presides over his fake court and listens to real-life disputes with bailiff Jesse Thorn as his sidekick.

Hodgman and Thorn joined “City Lights” earlier in the week.
