Jamie deRoy brought some friends to entertain her friends at Birdland last night. I’m sure everyone was clicking the like button after this episode of the Jamie deRoy and friends show which was presented by Jim Caruso’s Broadway at Birdland series. The room was jam packed with only 1.5% of Jamie’s Facebook friends, but I’m sure the rave “notifications” have already been received by the remaining 5,850 on her page. For 25 years this variety show has been entertaining New Yorkers both live and on her her cable TV program. During that time many of her men friends have become silver haired, however the women friends in the audience supplied an ample amount of color diversity. There was also a healthy amount of fantastic entertainment diversity presented by Jamie. Howard McGillin, Brad Oscar, Cory Kahane, David Friedman, Christopher DeRosa, Savannah Brown, N’Kenge, and the current star of Cagney, Robert Creighton. She can’t accept any more friends on her page but you can go to her Fan Page and get an early notification which will enable you hopefully to get a seat at her next show. In any event, if there was anybody at Birdland last night who wasn’t a friend of Jamie deRoy, they left being a new one.
