They call him "the Closer." James Judd is the man that the storytelling show Snap Judgment brings out to bring down the house. The lawyer and former stand-up comedian is known for his brash, energetic style and his rollicking stories of public embarrassment and failure.
Judd will be among the performers taking the stage of Atlanta Symphony Hall this weekend when Snap Judgment rolls into town for a live show.
Judd says his story for this weekend's show involves a childhood scheme to skip the 7th grade by feigning a demon possession, which he spread around to the other kids in his neighborhood through a puppet show based on the film "The Exorcist."
"It did lead me to realizing that there was power in being able to stand up in front of an audience and tell a story," Judd says.
Snap Judgment comes to Atlanta Symphony Hall on Sunday, Feb. 12. You can hear the program Saturdays at 3 p.m. on WABE.
