My View: The 8th Woman To Become A Friar Is Bringing Her Show To The Friars Club

My View: The 8th Woman To Become A Friar Is Bringing Her Show To The Friars Club

It was headline news in the New York Times in 1988. The Friars Club was going to change it’s long standing policy of being a men’s only club and admit women. Take My Wife Please! announced The Times, and they then featured the first seven women members. Liza Minnelli, Joan Rivers, and Brooke Shields were in that first group. Jamie deRoy was number 8 and wasn’t included in The Times article. It was one of the few times in show biz history that she didn’t get a mention.  Jamie is however one of the more significant members of the Friars and she is bringing her long running Jamie deRoy & friends show to the club on March 20th. As usual, Jamie has a super list of performers with some surprises and the show is open to all members and also anyone who knows Jamie.
