Did You Know?


Per the title, the Friar's Club is a private club whose membership role is mainly composed mostly of comedians and is known for their risqué roasts of member and celebrities. See more »


When Jerry and George see one of the Sandos brothers wearing a blue jacket at The Friar's Club, they mistake the jacket for the one Jerry wore the night before. Since Jerry was given a jacket by the club, it is possible that the club gave the Sandos brother a similar jacket and that he was not necessarily wearing the jacket Jerry wore to the show.

The Mafia girlfriend.
11 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Plot:Elaine thinks that some one that she works with is faking being deaf. Jerry has a hard time getting into The Friars club after The Flying Santos brothers takes his jacket. Kramer starts following Leonardo Da Vinci's sleeping schedule and eventually falls asleep while having sex with his mafia girlfriend.

The Friars club is an unforgettable episode. I have seen this episode so many times. Rob Schneider guest stars in this episode as the deaf guy. The funniest situation is the one with the deaf guy or the one where Krmaer falls asleep during sex. Everyone of the situations in the episode are hilarious. This is a great episode.
