New York: The Friars Club
During New York’s advertising week, we had the priceless chance to be invited into the most iconic comedy stronghold: The Friars Club. Well the place has in fact it’s pricetag, if you consider a 75K membership a year, according to a waiter I discreetly asked.
The place has been home of many and many comedian’s roasts over the last decades (century?). Looking at the black and white pictures on the wall, you realize you are sitting in the same chairs as Frank Sinatra, Robbin Williams or Billy Crystal. I even saw the Pope JP II on one of those.
Our host Matt Scheckner made sure our dinner took place in the upper and private salon. Of course. Note that all pictures were taken using my iPhone.
