Product Description

Hosted By Jason Alexander, Fellow Roasters Include Ben Stiller,Andy Dick, Sandra Bullock, Jimmy Kimmel And Many More.

First things first: Where's Leonard Nimoy? When Comedy Central's raucously ribald Roast of William Shatner was originally broadcast on August 20, 2006, it began with Nimoy--Shatner's beloved Star Trek costar--leaving a phone-message to Shatner, apologizing for his absence (hey, the man has class) and begging Shatner to explain why he would subject himself to the indignity of a roasting on Comedy Central. "Is it the food?" Nimoy inquired, noting the Shat-man's expanding waistline over the years, and the roasting was excellently underway. Well, guess what? Due to copyright and other legal restrictions (and possibly to Nimoy's desire to distance himself from a shamelessly filthy broadcast), Nimoy's appearance and several musical cues have been edited from this otherwise expanded DVD release, which compensates by serving up a few perfunctory bonus features along with every foul-mouthed insult in their uncensored glory. Shatner himself makes a grand equestrian entrance, riding a white stallion into the auditorium before flopping his fat ass into Star Trek's original Captain's chair (on loan from Seattle's Science Fiction Museum) and settling in for an 80-minute onslaught of verbal abuse by Comedy Central's stable of vicious comedians. It's pee-your-pants hilarious or painfully obscene, depending on your tolerance for crudeness and profanity. (As anyone who saw the previous Roast of Pamela Anderson can tell you, Comedy Central's roasting policy is unabashedly adult-oriented and strictly no-holds-barred.)

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

I was so anxious for this this roast to be released. Yeh, it's a blast to see Shatner talking trash and getting trashed. But that 1 minute little piece of film with Nimoy and Shatner that opened the show IS NOT THERE !!!!!!!!!!

WHY THE &*%$# NOT?

That one single minute is a brilliant little bit of comedy, brilliantly executed by two people who have been known for their love/hate relationship, and absolutely worth the price of admission. I would buy a DVD of that bit alone. I am sorely dissapointed.

Just so you know, there are several JOKE SPOILERS here.

I saw this uproarious roast of William Shatner several times when Comedy Central aired and re-aired it last August. After the wickedly funny Comedy Central verbal drubbing of Pamela Anderson last year (2005), I was wondering who they were gonna put next in the chair of humiliation. Well, it turned out to be Captain James Tiberius Kirk himself. I thought the idea of the iconic and self-mocking William Shatner was a brilliant follow-up and a chance for the roasters to really outdo themselves. Now, I haven't seen this uncensored version yet (there was a Shatner roast pay-per-view, but I wasn't about to put out the chump change for it), so I'm basing these comments on the edited television release by Comedy Central, not on the forthcoming dvd. Being a completist kind of fella, odds are I'll amend this "review" as soon as I get the actual dvd in my paws. But, for now...

William Shatner must be blessed with towering self-esteem, along with a very keen sense of humor, to have withstood all the verbal onslaught and still come out intact and laughing; the roasters absolutely took no pity on him, and, yet, there Shatner was, chortling and seemingly having the time of his life. George Takei and Nichelle Nichols represent the original Star Trek cast in person, while Leonard Nimoy opens the festivities with a video clip conversation with Shatner, even managing to get a dig in as he tries to talk his former shipmate out of doing the roast ("Why are you doing this? Is it for the food?").

I agree with many reviewers about the crudeness. Most of the humor is not that funny, just shockingly rude. And I have to admit that making so many harsh gay (not that there's anything wrong with that) jokes about George Takei (Sulu) wasn't that funny either. Just crude.

Don't get me wrong, I am opposed to being politically correct. I can crack a lot of harsh jokes (jokes mind you) about race, religion and sexual preference. But I simply got bored with all the rude Gay Jokes. George seemed to like the jokes or the attention.

However, to me this roast was worth it to see Clint Howard reprise his role as Balok (is that how you spell it??) from the episode THE CORBOMITE MANEUVER from the first season of the original series of star trek. This had me on the floor and wanting to tell all my trek friends about it. I am buying it just for the Tranya.

Comedy Central has had a blast producing frequent Roasts over the past few years (Denis Leary, Jeff Foxworthy, Pam Anderson), and the Roast of William Shatner is no different. Gleefully shameless for it's running time, the Roast of William Shatner features 'ol Captain Kirk himself being a good sport in the heat of being verbally insulted by such comedians like Lisa Lampinelli, Patton Oswalt, Artie Lange, and Jeffrey Ross (as well as video remarks from Ben Stiller, Sandra Bullock, Jimmy Kimmel, and Sarah Silverman); but this Roast isn't without it's flaws. For starters, it would have been nice to see some more Star Trek personalities here besides George Takei and Nichelle Nichols, and speaking of Takei (who had just come out of the closet prior to the Roast being filmed), he ends up taking more needless insults than Shatner does a number of times. Not to mention that the inclusion of some of the guests here (namely Farrah Fawcett and the always annoying Andy Dick) is mind-boggling. There are some funny moments though that outweigh the bad, like a look back at Shatner's post-Trek career, which is just too funny in itself, and Jason Alexander makes a good host as well, and Shatner's concluding strike back comments are worth the price of admission alone. All in all, if you enjoyed any of the previous Comedy Central Roasts, chances are you'll dig seeing Captain Kirk get what he deserves.

I use to love the old Dean Martin Celebrity roasts. The pokes at the person roasted were well aimed. Comedy Central has taken over the tradition, they have only done a few..however their previous subjects (Jeff Foxwothy, Pam Anderson) have been quite at home with their Roasting

Eighty minutes is too short for a roasting for William Shatner. The former Captain Kirk/T.J. Hooker/Priceline dot com Diva is right at home being roasted.

This so called tribute starts with a taped message from his former co-star Leonard Nimoy who in his spockian way said "A Roast, why are you doing it>? Is it for the food?' Pointing out that Shatner has put on a few pounds since his Trek days

And that gets the ball rolling uphill as most of Shatner media career from Trek to Priceline, from Boston Legal's Denny Crane to his singing styles are poked and slammed dunked home

Shatner takes this spirited roast in great form, seeming to crave more and more roasting from many people as the audience (YOU) will want more too.

AS in Free Enterprise (see my review), Shatner pokes fun at himself..Now in other hands, Shatner just sits back and laughes and so will you

So Beam aboard for the laughes
