Trivia

Bill Shatner entered the stage on a horse. While he is an accomplished rider this entrance is likely a reference to the opening of Star Trek V, a movie he directed which was critically panned. See more »

Quotes

Artie Lange - Roaster: A lot of people might say "Art, why hit Janeane? She's not here to defend herself." And the answer is simple; I've met Janeane Garofalo and she's a fucking cunt.

Rocket Man Out-Roast his Roasters
25 April 2010 | by (Alabama) – See all my reviews

The Comedy Central Roast are usually just an opportunity to squeeze the lowest common denominator with the least amount of thought, and this proves no different. Firstly--the majority of the jokes just weren't funny. Of course, I've never been that impressed with any of the assembled comedians, anyway. And really, the roastee shouldn't be funnier than the roasters--and bless'em, the Shat-man truly was.

I do enjoy some vulgar humor but it is over-used here to a non-impressive effect. Poor Farah Fawcett was out of place and probably just selected for an opportunity to be the brunt for some easy jokes. Kevin Pollak was probably the best, but it was just a recycling of Shatner jokes we've all heard before. Artie Lange and Patton Oswalt also lent a little to the proceedings, but really not enough to salvage this work.

I did at least learn how to pronounce George Takei's last name.
