The Judy Cohen Story is the twelfth episode of Season 4 of Good Times, and also the 73rd series episode overall. Written by John Donley and Nance McCormick, the episode, which was directed by Gerren Keith, premiered on CBS-TV, airing on December 22, 1976.
While managing Michael's singing group, J.J. comes across a singer he knows is destined for stardom, with the right management.
J.J. gets Michael's band a job at a tavern. While the play is good, Florida does not want Michael to be playing in a bar. When J.J. is at the tavern, he hears another singer (Judy Cohen) and knows that she has real talent to make it big.
Singer/comedian Judith Cohen appears as herself in this episode. Having booked his brother Michael's singing group into a gig at a local bar, wannabe agent J.J. (Jimmie Walker) catches Judith's act and decides to "develop" her for bigger things. Unfortunately, Judith is suffering from a spectacular lack of self-confidence.
