VIDEO: Robert De Niro, Caitlyn Jenner, and More Set to Roast Alec Baldwin on Comedy Central
Other entertainers joining the dais include “SNL’s” Chris Redd and Stern Show veterans Joel McHale and Jeff RossAugust 12, 2019
Robert De Niro and Caitlyn Jenner are just two of the big-time stars coming for Alec Baldwin next month.
Comedy Central has released a promo for the award-winning actor’s upcoming celebrity roast and revealed the names of some of those set to lob insults at him. Other entertainers sitting up on the dais alongside De Niro and Jenner will include Alec’s “Saturday Night Live” co-star Chris Redd, veteran NBA player Blake Griffin, actress Debra Messing, and past Stern Show guests Jeff Ross and Joel McHale.
“When I taped this promo I had no idea who would be on the dais of this Comedy Central roast. That’s why I recorded these generic reactions,” Baldwin jokes (above) before tossing out a few easygoing insults at no one in particular.
The event will take place at the Saban Theatre in Los Angeles on Sept. 7 and air Sept. 15. Messing’s “Will & Grace” co-star Sean Hayes will serve as the evening’s Roast Master with additional roasters to be named in the coming weeks.
Alec has memorably joined the Stern Show numerous times over the years, sitting down with Howard just this past March to discuss everything from his Pete Davidson-influenced workout regimen to several of his upcoming film and TV projects. He also spoke at length about getting directed by De Niro, one of his soon-to-be roasters.
“I would just stare at him,” Alec said with a laugh, telling Howard he couldn’t help but be in awe of De Niro. “After like 60 seconds I’d be like, ‘Could you say that again because I haven’t heard a single word you said. I’ve been too busy staring at you.’”
