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

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.

What the...
27 June 2007 | by mrmogtrSee all my reviews

This was totally lame as far as what a celebrity "Roast" should be. The only funny roaster was Betty White. Where did the producers come up with the roaster list I wonder? Has-Beens-R-Us? Most of the jokes were directed at George Takei. Who was supposed to be roasted here?? I agree to a previous commenter that the Dean Martin Roasts are far superior to the tripe being produced these days. The majority of the roasters had nothing to do with Star Trek and more than likely are not friends of Shatner to begin with. That was the premise of the Roasts of the '70s. Friends and show business associates of the Roastee are part of the gist of what is supposed to be a "Roast". From watching this Roast, I can see why Shatner's real friends and cast mates wanted nothing to do with what was supposed to go on. Producers of the Roast, please heed this and the other comments!
