First of all, you do not deserve to leave negative feedback if you purchased the Season Pass without actually seeing the episode as available. $5 for an uncensored, 1080p digital copy of a comedy special less than 3 days after air, without commercials, is a pretty good deal to me. These roasts are almost always hilarious, and you are really missing out if you choose to watch the on-air, edited version.
That being said, it would be nice if iTunes provided actual release date/times, but so it goes.
Possibly the Best Roast CC Ever Produced
Jonah Hill was surprisingly funny, Sarah Silverman and Aziz Ansari killed it, and the essential Jeff Ross never disappoints! Loved everyone else, but those guys deff get special mention. Easily the best roast I've ever seen Comedy Central produce! The usuals were missed (Greg Giraldo - RIP, Lisa Lampanelli, Whitney Cummings, Anthony Jeselnik, Amy Schumer, Gilbert Gottfried, etc.), but after seeing what these guys did and how they showed why they are respected at what they do, it made my Labor Day.
P.S. The Black-Tie Affair was a nice touch!
P.P.S. Arnold Schwarzenegger should be the next roastee. Danny DeVito can be roastmaster! The jokes simply write themselves, and he would be a good sport!
BTW: To all those complaining that they haven't received the roast yet, perhaps you don't know how the business works. The roast airs, an encore follows, and the day of, or next day of, the special encore 72 hours after it first aired, iTunes will provide the uncensored version for those that purchased the Season Pass. It's called a season pass for a reason - you wait until CC authorizes Apple to deliver it. No matter what, you'll get it. Down-voting the roast simply because you're impatient is just wrong, and makes me wonder where your mothers were at when they were supposed to teach you about how virtuous patience is!
What a great Roast with a top cast. Everyone delivered some great lines, stand out acts came from Jonah Hill, Aziz Ansari, Bill Hader, but it was probably Jeff Ross who took the crown. Franco and also the erst of the bunch are definitely not ashamed of making fun of themselves, as you can see in the hillarious „This is the end“. One of the funkest things I’ve seen this year.
