And in an apparent first, one developer is now planning on installing them as optional amenities on several high-end condominiums currently under construction throughout the Read More
Comedian Marc Maron stood behind the glowing glass podium wearing a tuxedo and a befuddled look. “Am I bombing already?” he asked the black-tie crowd at the Sept. 28 New York Friars Club roast of Chevy Chase, after telling a couple of stinkers.

In his white T-shirt and dark blazer, Friars Club dean Freddie Roman looked like a vacationing Vulcan, but as he stood on the stage of New York’s Town Hall on the evening of June 9, he had some important business to conduct. “To those of you who are not members or guests of the Friars, Read More
Rob Reiner sat in a big beige armchair on the stage of the New York Hilton’s Grand Ballroom on Oct. 6. With his moon face and trimmed beard, the actor-director resembled a black-tie Santa. And at that moment, Santa was waiting to be mugged by a puppet.
