CELEBRITY Comedy

The concept of the comedy roast has been around for decades. It's a bizarre way of tearing someone to shreds in front of a crowd while still somehow paying tribute to them. A consensual person is chosen as the subject and is then "roasted" by a panel of friends, family, and professional comedians. Comedy Central revolutionized the format when they created their show 'Comedy Central Roast' in 2003, which has featured many high-profile celebrities over the years as well as a panel of the sharpest comedians in the business. Each event has a dedicated Roast Master who hosts the show and takes potshots at the other roasters, as well as the "guest of honor."

While many roasts feature robust subjects who can handle a few jokes from their good friends, there have been many occasions when the jokes were so vicious that they caused real offense. This is particularly problematic when the roastees weren't at a high point in their careers. We're looking at you, Chevy Chase. Don't kick a guy while he's down...
