Photo Coverage: Jerry Lewis Brings His Act Home to the Friars Club

It was just another special night at the historic Friars Club as Abbot Jerry Lewis entertained his fellow Friars with jokes, stories and iconic film clips. The legendary superstar and leader of the club brought his act home to share with fellow Friars at the Monastery last night and Broadwayworld was there. Jerry showed rare films clips of TV and nightclub performances. A most hysterical one was when movie producer/director Lewis made Milton Berle endure a "film test". Watching 3 generations the Lewis family perform on a 1950's TV show was a magic, fun and touching moment. There was much love, laughter, friendship and show business history at the Friars last night. That's what the club is all about.

Nicolas King and Seth Sikes have their own individual, respective careers and come from what would seem like different orbits. But, actually, it turns out, maybe not so much, because when they come together as THE NEW BELTERS, a special kind of energy force forms and it’s reminiscent of, say, Martin & Lewis (Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis). Check out photos here!
