This is one of the best roasts that everyone, from Hollywood, to us, ordinary people, have been waiting for- The Comedy Central Roast of James Franco. The special was taped in late August and it aired in the USA last week.
Franco is one of the most hardworking actors in Hollywood, yet it's that smug attitude that makes him a polarizing character. His tenure as host of the 2011 Academy Awards with Anne Hathaway, further made him one of the actors we love to tease.
South Africa will get to see the Roast of James Franco on Tuesday, 24 September at 9pm on Comedy Central.
Here are just some of the jokes from the Roast of James Franco. (There was a lot of gay jokes. Apologies to sensitive readers.)
And of course Franco's response to the roast
Franco: “The joke’s on all of you. This is not a roast. This is my greatest most elaborate art installation ever. I’m not the real guest of honor, these aren’t real comedians and we’re not even on a real network. What you’ve seen tonight was my brilliant opus to sequester an artistic visionary and subject him to the mindless incoherent trashings of talentless abnormalities. I call it Genius Unscathed and this is my masterpiece”
Tune in on Tuesday, 24 September 2013.
