"EMOTIONS COME WITH THE LAUGHS"
The first annual Stephen J. Fearon Humor Salon at the Friars Club was a sold-out success!
Excerpt from the Irish Echo -- "Hosts, Sarah Fearon and Marian Fontana, put together a spirited evening that was both commensurate with the auspicious setting and a fitting tribute to Stephen J. Fearon, IAW&A's pro bono legal counsel instrumental in forming the group, who passed away earlier this summer.
The presenters at this Salon all brought humor, but they also offered a broad range of emotion beyond simple amusement, which seemed appropriate for the times we've all been enduring these last few years."
STEPHEN J. FEARON
Sarah and Marian Fontana will host this special SOLD OUT event that will bring IAW&A personalities and friends to the Friars. Among those scheduled to present are Sheila Walsh, Marcia Loughran, John McDonagh, Lizzie Donahue, Dan Brown, Jon Gordon, Karen Daly, Marcus Goldhaber and Malachy McCourt!

"What's So Funny?"
Irish America featured Sarah´s piece highlighting three comedic performers with Irish roots sharing their stories and how they get to the laughter.
"Is it the collective painful history as a people? The tendency not to take themselves too seriously? The influence of Irish hospitality? Or maybe they were just born that way. The larger-than-life Malachy McCourt, the sardonic Kevin Brennan, and the sophisticated, witty Maureen Langan shed some light on how they process life into material."
