    The Shat Hits the Fan!! Roast of William Shatner on Comedy Central

    This airs Sunday Aug. 19th 9PM Central. I had seen some the scenes on Carrie Fisher was there and there was a hilarious conversation between Bill and Leonard over the phone. This is going to be great!!!!

    Sadly I'm going to miss this one. Due to a scheduling snafu on my part I'll be busy sorting socks and organizing my cd/dvd collection while the show is on. I just wish I could rearrange a time for these important tasks so I could watch this.

    I'll be sure to watch it, Betty White was hilarious in that one clip where she said "We all know Shatner's nuts...but George has ****** them!" and then they cut to George Takei laughing.

    Holy carp!! I'm sure someone will be along shortly to edit that post, but I'm laughing my butt off.

    I didn't bother with the Pamela Anderson roast (I despise her, and the whole premise seemed pointless), but I'll have to check this one out. Thankfully I'll have the east coast feed for Deadwood.) Shatner rules. I find it funny that the guy recognizes he's something of a joke who starred in one extremely popular TV series, and runs with it. Maybe next year, Comedy Central will roast David Hasselhoff.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    I... heard that it... will run... long... due to... all... the...

    ... pauses... the roasters...

    ... make.

    Possible lame jokes:

    "He couldn't be here tonight, PriceLine lost his reservation."

    "He couldn't be here tonight, he threw out his back rolling over his limo's hood."

    "He couldn't be here tonight, an unseen creature killed him on his flight here."

    "Star Trek? I thought it was Start Wreck."

    "How could a cop be a hooker?"

    Yes. Quite... lame.

    I love Patton Oswalt in that one commercial where he whips out a paper bag and asks Shatner to act his way out of it. I think Shatner is the best, he's got some real acting chops but often falls back on his cheese and that's fun too, he's got this noble ideal of what his characters should be and he sorta lives to it. Plus he really made Captain Kirk a larger-than-life character that nobody else could ever duplicate. So it should be a real hootenanny to watch him get chewed up in this roast. I hope the uncensored version is going to air the Saturday night afterwards, that'll be awesome.

    BTW, anybody seen the newest commercial for it capitalizing on Andy Dick's publicized lunacy at the roast? Very smart of Comedy Central!

    OH MY GAWD!!!! The roast was awesome!!!! Brutal, disgusting, but hilarious!! As they all are. It should've been the roast of George Tah-Kay. They ripped him from stem to stern. But Takei's set was really so over the top you couldn't help but laugh....and cringe at the same time.
    The few shots in the audience at the time when everyone was coveing their faces while cringing was priceless. But the best part was watching the segments of the Shatman doing his singing. I about fell on the floor when it showed him doing something on that sow with that other guy singing "keep it g**, keep it g**, keep it g**, keep it g**, keep it g**, keep it g**!!!! I was suprised that there wasn't more rips on him in reference to the geek empire he created. But the ones said were great.
    I can't wait for the uncut release on DVD!!

    I was the slightest bit disappointed. I'll be the first to admit that the original Star Trek with all it's cheesy effects, bad acting, and melodramatic stories was a huge part of my life and that William Shatner was a large part of that, large enough that I were I to meet him or ever speak at an event in his honor I would sound like I was completely sucking up . . . but it's William Freaking Shatner! Jokes should come unbidden and be remorseless and relentless. His entire career has been one load of roast fodder after another.

    I almost found myself agreeing with the Shat when he got up and said how many of them just weren't funny. I almost wish Jimmy Doohan were still alive. That roast would have been elevated to a whole new level if he got up there drunk as hell and just let Shatner have it. Inappropriate to the spirit of it, yes, but belly laugh inducing.

    There were great parts. The captain's chair was perfect. It was a great example of giving him hell while reminding us all he was the man in charge of a cultural phenomenon. Of all parts of it I laughed the hardest at Nichel Nichols when she ended the sentence that began with, "Bill, let's make history again . . ." I also got a pretty good laugh when Shatner told Takei what he could not do but turned and thanked Nichols. The other really funny line I thought was the line about Shatner coming [into the room] on a horse.

    Ha, ha, it's Yiddish, the past tense of ****ner. Hee, hee.

    I'm kind of surprised actors from other Star Treks didn't get up to speak. Patrick Stewart and Brent Spiner (who was in the audience) could have written speeches that would have been really funny.

    Andy Dick should have been shot the moment he looked like he was going to lick a second person. Sometimes he can be outrageously funny but the other 99.99% of the time, he really does need to be shot.

    I just watched about the first 30 minutes. I did like the opening montage of clips. The first roaster (I cannot recall his name) seemed to focus more on the guests than Shat himself; BTW, his folded piece of notebook paper was a classy, organized touch (yeah, I know, it was just a roast after all). From what I saw, it was okay. I'll catch the rare re-runs that'll follow.
