Description

A glimpse into the private world of the hilarious Friars. The legendary New York Friars Club and its members are known the world over. This is a hilarious compilation of tales, anecdotes, and historical information about the club, featuring funny and moving moments from hundreds of stars like Milton Berle, Frank Sinatra, Jerry Lewis, Don Rickles, and more, as well as stars of today, like Kelsey Grammer, Jason Alexander, Billy Crystal, and Drew Carey. The Friars are renowned for dishing out jokes and doling out insults in order to roast countless performers, politicians, and popular personalities. From their first testimonial dinner in 1907 to their televised roast of Jerry Stiller in 1999, you'll be inside the club, where ribaldry is synonymous with fraternity. The Friars have never held back when the promise of a good laugh, especially at someone else's expense, was at hand. Find out what was really said and done at those titillating tongue-lashings known as the private and exclusive Friars Roasts (where even the waiters were ordered out of the room).
