Looks Like He Made It

This little clip from the New York Post yesterday is the only glimpse we have into Barry's Friar's Club induction on 2/14 right before his benefit show at Nassau Colliseum.

I heard Lisa Lampanelli was giving the toast and I started salivating - don't you all just wish you could say what you want like she does and get away with it? She takes it a step further and actually gets PAID for it!! One can only dream!

So Barry got off without a roast. Come on, just a little roast? A teeny tiny one? It's tradition! I'll even give you the opening joke, just to show you how harmless it is:

What's the definition of a gentleman?
Someone who knows how to play the accordian - but doesn't. (*rimshot*)

See, that's not so bad.

While you're cruising for information on the show and the Good Morning America appearance from Friday 2/13, make sure to browse the blogs on My Manilow Network. There are a ton of first-hand stories from people who were there, just what the doctor ordered for your warm-and-fuzzy fix.

Happy Valentine's weekend, everybody!

(Here's a link in case the video doesn't start playing.)

  1. Here's what I wish. I wish Barry could have said what he felt that day. I mean really felt. To every critic of his craft that's ever bashed him for his music. That's the kind of honesty I'd like to hear!

    But, alas. The man is a gentleman.
