Photo Coverage: Friars Club Celebrates 90th Birthday Of Jerry Lewis with Robert De Niro and More!

Jerry's 90th Birthday Party soon became a telethon of happiness as the Friars evening unfolded. The pledges given to Jerry Lewis were of love and respect and they came from his fellow Friars and entertainers jam packed into the Frank Sinatra Dining Room. The amount of laughs in the club even created a new total of hysterics for an institution that has been the home of much laughter during its storied show biz history.

Robert De Niro started the dinner off with some heartfelt birthday wishes but also some that cannot be repeated here. The other comedians who came to celebrate with Jerry rose to the occasion and kept the comic legend laughing the whole night. Jack Jones thrilled the Friars with the Impossible Dream as only the great singers singer could. The funny men & women were, Max Alexander, Richard Belzer, John James, Robert Klein, Marilyn Michaels, Mark Wilk, Freddie Roman, Jeff Ross, and David Sternberg.

Like Jacob Young and the Cast of Damn Yankees sang to Jerry.....You Gotta Have Heart and this birthday party warmed everyone's heart. BroadwayWorld was there for the celebration - check out photos below!
