Storyline

It's William Shatner's turn to step in to the celebrity hot seat for the latest installment of The Comedy Central Roast. A parade of Shatner's friends have gotten together to boldly go where no one has gone before: on William Shatner's sh*tlist. Tune in as some of Shatner's closest friends hang out, have a few drinks, listen to a live performance by one of the hottest bands around, and then spend ninety minutes ridiculing and insulting the man behind Captain Kirk. So sit back and enjoy the night of insults as Shatner's tries not to lose his cool - or his toupee! Written by Comedy Central

Who are these nobodies?
22 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Putrid beyond belief. Avoid this at all costs, especially while eating. It will literally turn your stomach.

Greg Giraldo, I never heard of you before, and, after watching this travesty, I shall avoid ever watching anything with you in it for the rest of my life. I have never, ever seen such disgusting, mean, vulgar remarks masquerading as "humor." You should be ashamed of yourself.

And aside from his remark about Incubus in Esperanto, Jason Alexander wasn't much better -- not a funny remark to be found, just crude insults, mostly directed at other attendees. I remember the old Dean Martin roasts, and Jason Alexander, you are no Dean Martin.

Those old roasts had plenty of insults, but they were clever, and everyone knew they were meant in jest, mostly. The results were hilarious, and masterfully delivered. This Comedy Central updated version is not worthy of the name "roast." I'm sorry, but even Betty White's remarks were in bad taste.

As to the rest of these nobodies: Andy Dick, Clint Howard, Lisa Lampanelli, Artie Lange, Pierangeli Llinas, Craig J. Nevius and Debra 'Debbie' Clark, may you all roast in hell.

Surely, there was plenty of fodder for humor in William Shatner's long career, beginning with his appearances on The Twilight Zone, but it is obvious that none of these bozos ever saw Shatner's old work, and it is not obvious that they had even heard of him before that evening. If they had, they weren't intelligent to come up with anything witty and pertinent to say.

What astonishes me is this travesty actually had "writers," and they were willing to have their names listed in the credits! So, here they are: Michael Ferrucci, Mathew Harawitz, Joe Kelly, Aaron Matthew Lee, Michael Rowe, Chad Zumock. May you spend eternity in the TV Hall of Shame.

And then there is director Joel Gallen. After looking at your credits, I can see why I've never heard of you before. What truly amazes me is how many of your productions are dominated by votes of 9 or 10 stars! So, Joel, how much did it cost you per vote? You are so pathetic, it's pitiful, and out of pity I have changed my vote from 1 to 10.

If you liked this roast, you will love the "Comedy Central Roast of Flavor Flav," rated 7.3, featuring insults from Greg Giraldo, Snoop Dogg and Ron Jeremy.

Note to Comedy Central: Clever insults from Jimmy Stewart are funny, stupid, obscene insults from a-hole scum b-gs aren't. (Are we laughing, yet? Aren't mean-spirited comments hilarious? When do I get paid for being a "comedy" writer?)

As to the audience, if they had any sense of decency, they would have walked out. Heck, if I were Shatner, I would have walked out. But you can't do that when you agree to a roast. Shatner knew what was going on when he called the assemblage "nobodies." But, sadly, he resorted to crude obscenities, too.

So, don't bother with this, unless it is shown on broadcast television during primetime -- then it would be only about five minutes long.
