Friar’s Club Documentary — Tonight on WNET and Online

Posted on May 21, 2015 at 8:00 am

Tonight on New York PBS station WNET, “Treasures of New York: Friars Club” will explore the rich history of the exclusive private club through never-before-seen footage of Frairs roasts and interviews with some of the club’s most prominent members. Larry King, Joy Behar, Lisa Lampanelli, Susie Essman, Jerry Lewis, Jeffrey Ross and Mark Simone are among those interviewed. The Friars Club is best known for its outrageously insulting (and extremely dirty) roasts, but it is also the home territory for superstar performers, including the greatest comedians of the last century, from the vaudeville era to the YouTube era.

The documentary will also be available online.
