Although I have not personally seen the entire program, I have heard
from numerous sources that the "N.Y. Friars Roast of Chevy Chase"
broadcast on Comedy Central a few years ago was such a disaster that
even Comedy Central acknowledged its failure and vowed never to air it
on television again. So far they have apparently kept to their promise.
Part of the reason the show was so horrendous was apparently due to the
fact that the roast's subject, Mr. Chase, did not approve of the jokes
targeting his career. He was also upset that none of his old "friends"
from his "SNL" days had shown up (except for one or two no-names who
never found a career outside of the program) - the same "friends" of
Chevy that later voted him as the least-liked cast member in the
history of "SNL." Now, I hold nothing against Chevy Chase. He's pretty
funny (well, was, anyway) in those '80s comedy like "Vacation" and
"Caddyshack." But from what I've seen of the program he really didn't
understand the concept at all.
William Shatner, on the other hand, takes the extreme criticism in
stride. He's a good sport all through this roast - some of the jokes
are truly brutal, ranging from verbal jabs at his alleged hairpiece to
his singing career and of course his infamous acting chops. Shatner's
good humor surrounding the entire ordeal elevates this program -
because I'm sure I would have felt less content to laugh along with all
the jokes if Shatner had thrown a Chevy Chase and been a jerk about it.
This isn't quite as good as last year's Pamela Anderson roast, I must
say. Overall the jokes are tamer (excluding some crude references to a
gay "Star Trek" castmember and his private activities, so to speak) -
which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but I felt as though a lot of the
dirtier stuff had been cut out. This doesn't bother me as much as the
fact that the cuts were made fairly obvious. No doubt Comedy Central
will feature some type of "Uncut" DVD in the future with bonus material
"too raunchy for television."
Plus, I absolutely HATED the fact that they cut numerous roasters'
speeches short. I understand there were time constraints, but the first
one who should have been axed was Farrah Fawcett, whose speech was
absolutely horrid. Apparently trying to make fun of her notorious
Letterman appearance from a few years back, it quickly dissolved into
another case of a joke falling victim to its own subject - she was
wasted out of her mind! She completely messed up her jokes, kept
turning away from the microphone (making it hard to hear what she was
saying), and just generally ruined the vibe of the entire thing. The
audience members (including Carrie Fisher, who gets stabbed with jokes
a few times linked to her weight gain) were straining to laugh.
Instead, I would have FAR preferred to see comedy genius Fred Willard's
speech. They decided to cut it short and give us probably less than a
minute or so of what he actually said when the show was recorded last
week. Willard is such a fine, dry comedian - chances are his jokes just
weren't understood by the editors of this show, who are obviously in
favor of the more obvious, deliberately crude material.
Basically the whole thing about the gay Star Trek member was funny the
first few dozen times, but it's akin to Pam Anderson's boob jokes from
last year getting old - enough is enough. Not that I'm complaining, but
Andy Dick and Kevin Pollak were also cut short (I could go without
hearing Dick's entire routine, I admit) - and the editing is more
choppy than last year's roast, resulting in noticeable skips - as if
the editors selected the "best" of each roaster and spliced it
But these flaws aside, the show WAS very funny. I laughed my head off
when Ben Stiller appeared in a pre-recorded roast to Shatner.
Unexpected and hilarious, Stiller's was one of my favorite segments of
the entire program! Jason Alexander was a surprisingly good host,
although he seemed a bit hesitative and unsure at times. Overall I
think I preferred Kimmel's more cynical presentation from last year's,
but again, it's a minor complaint.
Overall if you're a fan of these roasts you'll love this. There are
some great moments such as the Shatner music flashbacks - including
video pieces from his infamous "Rocket Man" performance from years ago.
Shatner takes it all in stride and comes across as a really nice,
likable guy - even after all is said and done he gets up and delivers a
tongue-in-cheek roast to himself.
This may not be quite as unexpected, irreverent or downright hilarious
as the Pamela Anderson roast, but just barely. My only complaints, as I
mentioned above, were the editing choices, really - apart from that, it
was another job well done on Comedy Central's behalf! As an aside, I'd
really love to see "The Roast of David Hasselhoff" next year. NO ONE
deserves a roast as much as this guy does. So I'll have my fingers
crossed for the next year, I suppose.
