NEW YORK — Larry King will soon help rule the roasts at the Friars Club.

The longtime TV and radio host is the new dean of the century-old organization famous for its raunchy celebrity tributes.

The Friars announced today that King will succeed Freddie Roman and serve for the next two years. The 80-year-old King will assist Friars Club “abbot” Jerry Lewis and the board of directors in overseeing the roasts, dinners and other events.

Radio personality William B. William and vaudeville star Harry Delf are among previous Friars deans.
