Monarch for a day

Biz gathers to support Brillstein and his memoirs

Legendary manager/producer Bernie Brillstein ends his memoir, “Where Did I Go Right?” (Little, Brown) with: “These days it’s good not to be king.”

But for at least one night Monday, the larger-than-life Hollywood insider was king as cronies, clients and colleagues came out to celebrate the release of Brillstein’s autobiography.

“Funny,” “ballsy,” “honest” and “insightful” were among the comments overheard describing the anecdotes in the book as they waited in line for Brillstein to sign their copies.

Among the players who gathered to support Brillstein were Brad Grey (Brillstein’s partner in Brillstein-Grey Entertainment), actors Martin Short, Raquel Welch, Jon Lovitz, Rob Lowe, Illeana Douglas, Bob Sagat, ICM’s Jeff Berg and Leigh Brillstein (the author’s daughter), Viacom’s Jonathan Dolgen, Universal’s Kevin Misher, Endeavor’s Adam Venit, Brillstein-Grey execs Gerry Harrington, Marc Gurvitz, Sandy Wernick, music impresario Guy Oseary, attorney Jake Bloom and screenwriter Alan Zweibel.
