friendly roast
29 March 2015 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

James Franco is getting roasted on Comedy Central. Seth Rogen is the roast master. The roasters are his friends. Well at least, they're his Hollywood friends. Bill Hader does a funny character who runs Hollywood. Aziz Ansari is probably the smartest. Half of his time isn't prepared and in response to the other roasters. Most of the roasters are taking as much aim at each other as they do at Franco. Aziz gets a lot of Indian jokes which he throws back at them. Jonah Hill gets a few weight jokes. Sarah Silverman makes a funny joke about Mexicans in Natasha Leggero. She makes it clear what's inside of Leggero. Nick Kroll is ridiculed for being a nobody. Jeff Ross is in cornrows and being a dick as usual. James Franco is probably the weakest but that's kind of expected after the Oscars. He does have some well written jokes. The thing that comes through is that everybody on the show and in the audience seem to really like the guy. He's not being roasted by strangers or hired guns. These people love to make fun of him.
