Move Over, Buddy Hackett
OK, so you expect a book on the Friars Club to be funny, right? The biggest surprise may be the biting asides of Barry Dougherty. The author has the best job in the world: working behind the scenes at the Friars Club and eavesdropping on the likes of Alan King, Red Buttons, Billy Crystal and Jerry Stiller. They've rubbed off. When the pros fall flat, Dougherty keeps the LOLs going.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

The Friars have met their match...
The Book of Roasts reads like a Roast. A little bawdy but affectionate and interesting look at the history of the Friars and their famous roasts. Dougherty shows good natured fun has he takes us through nearly a century of American humor.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
