Schumer, Jeselnik, and Ross on the dais for the Roast of Roseanne Barr
The Comedy Central Roast of Roseanne Barr is set to be recorded next week in LA. One of the largest questions always asked is who will be on hand to fire barbs at the guest of honor. EW is reporting our predicted comedians on the dais will include Jeff Ross, Amy Schumer, and Anthony Jeselnik with the previously announced roastmaster Jane Lynch.
There’s always a few stars that show up to these as well, this time around Sharon Stone, Carrie Fisher, Katey Segal, and Seth Green will all join in on the roasting action.
This lineup does raise the question as to the small amount of comedians on the dais. While Jeselnik, Schumer, and Ross are more than capable to handle the task at hand, celebs aren’t often as good at the biting jokes. And biting they are! We caught Anthony Jeselnik’s performance at Just For Laughs and he gave a preview of some of his jokes for the roast, he is going to destroy!
The roast will tape this weekend, August 4th and air on Comedy Central August 12th.
UPDATE: Gilbert Gottfried, Ellen Barkin, and Wayne Brady have been added to the dais.
