The 16 Best Comedy Central Roast Sets Ever

30 March 2015 7:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

A different version of this post ran on August 28, 2013, before the James Franco Roast. We have updated it with the Justin Bieber Roast premiering tonight. A good roast joke is undeniable; it’s comedy at its most immediate and visceral. Cruel, harsh, and tasteless, sure, but also very, very funny. So with Justin Bieber getting roasted tonight on Comedy Central, we wanted to look back at the sets that set the roast bar at its highest. We went back through all 18 previous Comedy Central roasts (which were televised Friars' Club Roasts through 2002) and picked the 16 absolutely funniest single sets. (We limited it to one per comedian, so the list didn’t end up being half Greg Giraldo.) Be warned, the language is super Nsfw, unless you're a sailor, truck driver, or Jeff Ross. Enjoy, and remember they only roast the ones they love ... and Donald Trump. »

Tonight, The Roast of Justin Bieber will air on Comedy Central and the masses will get what they’ve long been waiting for: a public shaming of Justin Bieber. Of course, some of the special’s most notable put-downs of the pop star have been publicized, including insults from the likes of Roast master Kevin Hart (“Justin’s Canadian. He’s actually considered American, because no Canadian has ever been this much of an asshole”), Shaquille O’Neal (“Last year you were ranked the fifth most hated person of all time. Kim Jong-un didn’t even score that low, and he uses your music to fuckin’ torture people”), and Jeffrey Ross (“You’ve become a cocky little shit. You are the King Joffrey of pop”).

While Bieber’s burns are definitely scorching, he’s hardly the only Roastee to get royally humiliated during their special. As we count down to The Roast of Justin Bieber, »

The torching of the pop star will tape in Los Angeles on a date to be revealed soon

In a comedian’s dream come true, the next “Comedy Central Roast” will feature Justin Bieber as the punching bag and headliner.

The cable channel’s hilarious president of Content Development & Original Programming, Kent Alterman, already fired the first shot: “Justin has been asking us for a few years to roast him, and we just kept telling him to go create more source material first,” he said. “We’re thrilled he listened.”
