Comedy Central Roasts are going downhill.
4 August 2018 | by adush-glvacovaSee all my reviews

I gave three stars. One for Dom Irrera, one for Ed Norton, and one for Jeff Ross.

To start with - Joseph Gordon-Levitt was an absolute tragedy of a host. Compared to Seth McFarlane for example, he didn't come across as funny. He may be a good actor, but being a host of a roast means more than acting. His act (I even refure to call it his hosting style) was very unnatural and didn't feel funny at all.

Nikki Glaser was very weak. She was not bad at Rob Lowe roast, but here it felt like she wants to go the Amy Schumer way - talk about sex and private parts and pretend how funny such talk is.

Ed Norton was a nice surprise for me. Yes, he did talk about himself quite a bit. But that delivery had a storyline tied to his friendship with Bruce Willis and therefore justified. It felt very personal - which is how these roasts used to be years ago.

It's a shame that Comedy Central Roasts are now more about the star power and less about the actual comedy. People on the dais don't know each other, so it's quite predictable what will they say about each other (who did not expect North Korea being mentioned when Dennis Rodman was there?). With each next roast there are fewer actual comedians so I won't be surprised if next year we will have all A-list celebrity dais. Plus Jeff Ross.
