Of course, Shatner's not the only target of playful derision. After an introduction by host Jason Alexander (who, like guest comedian Kevin Pollak, built a career out of impersonating Shatner), nobody emerges unscathed, and some of the insults--particularly those aimed at Farrah Fawcett (whose inclusion here is barely justified)--are more cruel than entertaining. But everyone's a good sport, especially Star Trek's Mr. Sulu, George Takei, who'd recently gone public with his homosexuality, prompting nearly every roaster on the panel to make crude (and mostly unfunny) gay sex jokes at Takei's good-natured expense. (He later delivers a barb at Shatner that Star Trek historians will recognize as at least partially serious.) Like fellow roasters Fawcett and Shatner's Boston Legal costar Betty White, Trek veteran Nichelle Nichols endures a few insults about getting older, and in a highlight of the show, Clint Howard (in a video clip) reprises his role as the friendly alien "Balok" (from the classic Trek episode "The Corbomite Maneuver"), toasting Shatner with a beer-bonged shot of "Tranya." As Andy Dick proceeds to lick several of his fellow roasters (and, in the audience, Carrie Fisher--who licks back), Greg Giraldo, Patton Oswalt, Jeffrey Ross, and other Comedy Central regulars lay waste to Shatner's checkered career, including priceless film clips from Shatner's infamous post-Trek career as a "poetic interpreter" of hits like "Mr. Tambourine Man" and "Rocket Man." It's all in good fun, and judging from audience reaction (including numerous cutaways to Star Trek: Voyager's sexy Jeri Ryan), everyone had a good time when they weren't slack-jawed with shock from the R-rated barrage of banter. This stuff ain't for prudes, and if you don't know what to expect, you're probably better off watching reruns of T.J. Hooker. --Jeff Shannon
Bill Shatner knows how to get roasted.
This man never ages and changes with the times.
This and bob saget roast's are my favorite, nice to see sulu get some payback, funny,funny,funny.Published 7 months ago by Amazon Customer
I almost rated this 3 stars but it did make me laugh quite a bit. Sure, it's missing the Shatner/Nimoy intro from the aired version, but that can be slightly overlooked. Read morePublished 12 months ago by ThatsMrGrinch2U
Fans of Star Trek, TJ Hooker, etc will love this. It was I believe the fourth Comedy Central Roast, following Pamela Anderson's roast. Read morePublished 12 months ago by Jeff A.
as with all roasts, the guess of honor's friends and people in the same business as him take turns jokingly making fun of himPublished 16 months ago by Scott
Roasts have never particularly appealed to me, but many do have their moments. This one is the best I've seen. Read morePublished 17 months ago by John Jobeless
This was better than the Pam Anderson roast but not nearly as good as Hasselhoff, Flavor Flav or Trump.
The celebrity guests are lame and didn't have anything good. Read more
