Former Oscar host and Oscar nominee James Franco will be the target of rude and crude jokes at the upcoming Comedy Central Roast of James Franco. Franco, currently seen housing survivors of the apocalypse at his mansion in This Is The End, will sit by as comedians pick him apart as this year’s Roastee during the taping of the show this August. Comedy Central’s set a Labor Day premiere.
“If only James Franco was a more successful, multi-hyphenated, incessant creative risk taker in different media, he’d be the perfect person to roast. Oh well… I suppose we’ll just have to make do,” said Kent Alterman, President, Content Development & Original Programming, COMEDY CENTRAL.
“I’ve dreamed about this Roast for as long as I can remember,” responded Franco.
Comedy Central will also be airing Franco’s documentary Francophrenia after the Roast. Francophrenia was directed by Franco and allows fans a behind-the-scenes look at his stint on General Hospital.
