Comedy Central Roast
The Comedy Central Roasts focuses on one celebrity who is basically ripped to shreds or "roasted" by a group of their peers. Headlined by a roast master, you will witness celebrities ranging from actors and comedians to athletes and radio personalities telling jokes and stories about the star of the show that will make you laugh one second and cringe the next!
The roast is a no holds barred, laugh a minute, all out assault on whoever is brave enough to accept an invitation to sit in the hot seat! Although very few topics are off limits, this is all done with good natured fun in mind. It is widely considered to be an honor or a sign of respect that people will take the time to belittle you in front of a national audience. Even though you know that the editors of the show have their hands full before the show hits the air, it's not a show that you will want to watch with your children!
Roasters be warned, the tables are quickly turned when your fellow roasters take the stage. Generally, before they start firing shots at the guest of honor, the roasters will warm up by unleashing their jokes on their fellow presenters! You never really know what to expect when you sit on that panel, so bring a thick skin, because it might get dangerous!
The first roast sat comedian Dennis Leary in the hot seat. Since then, we have been treated to a who's who of stars take their turn getting blasted. That list includes actors William Shatner, Roseanne Barr, Chevy Chase, Joan Rivers, and David Hasselhoff. Hugh Hefner, Donald Trump, and Flava Flav even got into the act.
The list of roasters is quite impressive as well. We have seen the likes of Gary Busey, Carl Reiner, Snoop Dogg, and Tom Arnold all take their turns hacking away at their friends.
If you are looking for side-splitting fun, this show fits the bill!
