No I didn't go to the Roast (I kept waiting for my tickets but they never came), but fortunately Small White Ball found this at Press of Atlantic City. The highlights seem to include Jeffery Ross killing it, Trey Wingo bombing, and Dana Jacobson drinking lots and lots of vodka....
It was brutal. It was ridiculous. It was funny - some of the time.Wow that sounds fun. I would have guessed Dana was a whiskey guy.....er, girl. Here are the rest of the highlights and an actually video of the musical entertainment....
It was also too long and uneven. There were too many guests. And, unfortunately, there wasn't a hook to pull some of them off the stage.
It was everything a roast should be: insulting, vulgar and fun. Unfortunately, the fun moments weren't frequent enough as Mike Golic and Mike Greenberg of the popular ESPN morning talk show "Mike & Mike" celebrated their eighth anniversary with a celebrity roast at a sold-out House of Blues........
ESPN anchor Dana Jacobson made an absolute fool of herself, swilling vodka from a Belvedere bottle, mumbling along and cursing like a sailor as Mike & Mike rested their heads in their hands in embarrassment. Griffin came to the podium to defend her after she was booed by the crowd. Ross eventually had to pull her off stage, too.
"They called it Duel' because the only two people who watched it shot each other. Mike Greenberg is to hosting game shows what Michael Vick is to hosting dog shows."- Nick Bakay
"I kind of know my career is over when I'm hired to roast two white guys I never f**king heard of."- Eddie Griffin
"Mike & Mike are so dull they make Mike Tirico's show feel dangerous"- Nick Bakay
"You look great for 89. Tonight's event was on his bucket list."- Jeffery Ross to Mike Ditka
That was really Lifehouse and really from their Roast. You really couldn't have gotten a better band? Really???
