Ken Howard Honored at The Lambs' Luncheon


The Lambs honors Ken Howard today at a Shepherd's Luncheon.

In recognition of outstanding achievements in stage, television and film, and for his work in protecting performers rights, as a past President of SAG, as the first-elected President of SAG-AFTRA, and as a Trustee of the Actors Fund, and of the SAG Foundation, The Lambs bestowed Honorary Membership to Ken Howard. The event was hosted by The Lambs' Shepherd, Marc Baron, who is also a board member of the union.

The Lambs is America's first professional theatrical club, founded in New York in 1874. Lambs have been involved in the founding of the Actors Fund of America, ASCAP, Actors' Equity, Screen Actors Guild, AFTRA, and in the merger of SAG-AFTRA. Often confused with an unrelated restaurant bearing a similar name, The Lambs is located in midtown Manhattan, near Radio City Music Hall and St. Patrick's Cathedral.

Ken's admirable body of work includes his second Emmy in 2009 for his role in HBO's critically acclaimed Grey Gardens. He appeared in the recurring role of Hank Hooper in NBC's award-winning primetime series 30 Rock. With over 20 feature films, Howard can currently be seen as Judge Warren in The Judge, and in The Wedding Ringer. Ken Howard is a Tony-winning actor (Child's Play) who has appeared in nearly 40 stage productions since his professional debut on Broadway in 1968. His stage work includes 1776 and Seesaw.

Among the packed audience were Joe Benincasa (President and CEO, The Actors Fund), Tony and Emmy winning composer/conductor, Don Pippin, Joyce Randolph (Trixie of The Honeymooners), Gabriel Carteris (Exec. VP of SAG-AFTRA), David White (NED of SAG-AFTRA) and actress Jill O'Hara. The luncheon benefited The Lambs Foundation.
