    The Friars Club is fired up to roast a civilian

    Don Buchwald joins “fewer than 10” non-performers to get the honor of a Friars Club Roast.
    In a rarity, the 111-year-old Friars Club is set to roast a non-performer.

    “Super Agent” Don Buchwald, a Friar since 1972, will receive that honorary dragging over the coals May 12 at the historic Rainbow Room.

    Friars Club executive director Michael Gyure tells Confidenti@l “fewer than 10” non-performers have been roasted by the club and that Buchwald joins composer Irving Berlin, Yankees honcho George Steinbrenner and producers Louis B. Mayer and Jerry Weintraub by making that list.

    The club has hosted “around 120” sanctioned roasts over the past century, Gyure said. Since opening the Don Buchwald and Associates talent agency in 1977, Buchwald has repped countless stars, including Howard Stern, Kathleen Turner, Ed Asner, Jose Ferrer and Geoffrey Holder. The first roaster confirmed for the skewering is Buchwald client and Stern radio show co-host Robin Quivers, who has known the honoree for 30 years.

    “I don’t have any material just yet,” Quivers told Confidenti@l before serving up a preview of things to come. “There’s just not much to him. What’s to talk about, really? I don’t even know why they picked him to be roasted.”

    What role Stern will play at the event is unclear, but Quivers is confident that he’ll be there.

    Don Buchwald client Howard Stern is expected to be there according to Robin Quivers.
    For the past century, the Friars Club roast has been an honor bestowed on the club’s most prized members, including Humphrey Bogart, Milton Berle, Johnny Carson, Richard Pryor and Lucille Ball. The E. 55th St. club’s motto is “We only roast the ones we love.”

    While it’s too early to confirm which other comics and writers will participate in Buchwald’s roast, performers at these salty shindigs have included Jeffrey Ross, Sarah Silverman, Susie Esseman and Lisa Lampanelli.

    On the big night, Buchwald, a 1959 Brooklyn College grad, will also be recognized by his alma mater as a "Best of Brooklyn" honoree. Among his alumni pals are class of 1961 grad and “The Sopranos” star Dominic Chianese and 1974 graduate Barry R. Fierstein, for whom the college’s Graduate School of Cinema was named when it opened in September. Fierstein, who donated $5 million to launch the graduate film school, will co-chair Buchwald’s roast. He’ll be joined by class of ’58 standout Don Kramer, who’s chairman of the American Ballet Theater.

    From 1998 through 2002, Comedy Central televised Friars Club roasts, before they were spun off their own made for TV version that has honered the likes of Justin Bieber and Donald Trump.

    Buchwald’s Friars Club roast will not be televised, but tickets to see it live can be purchased through the Brooklyn College Foundation. "A Friars Roast is a performer's highest honor and very rarely, we bestow this award on a non-performer that is near and dear to the Friars," Gyure tells us, confirming Buchwald's tribute.

    Robin, they asked me to write jokes for the roast but I don't want to overshadow the comedians who are just as unfunny as I am. Let them take the blame.

    Here's my thoughts on Don's teeth, not that anyone asked. He's missing the front 6 and that's a removable partial denture. His back teeth have bulky, too white crowns.

    This picture isn't great and I'm on my phone, but that's what I think. Thank you

    He probably donated a ton of money to the joint.
    The Friars Club is all about the $$ right now.

    Robin : I was worried about Don when I first met him. He's the only agent I ever had who always wears a ni**er hating hat.
    Thank you everybody ! Goodnight. Don't forget to tip your waiter !

    "Tonight we are here to honor a man who has been in show business for more than 40 years. He has provided guidance and support for many big stars in radio, television, and film. ... But enough about Abe Vigoda, let's talk about this schmuck Dan Fuckwald."

    Howard must be torn on this. There is no way he can miss this without looking like an ass, but he knows he is cannon fodder for the other comedians on the dais. And he will want to be last to be the guy who rings in Don, but he cannot write jokes on the fly and he risks all of his prewritten good jokes already being done by other comedians by the time it is his turn.
