Shatner And Others Join The Dais For Comedy Central Roast Of Charlie Sheen

A roast isn’t a roast without people to do the roasting and with the Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen set to be taped this weekend, it’s good to know the network managed to fill the dais before then. Comedy Central announced today that William Shatner and some other notable celebrities will be there to light the comedic fire and properly cook Sheen.

The Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen is being taped this Saturday (September 10th) in Los Angeles, and is set to air on Comedy Central on Monday, September 19th at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. Seth MacFarlane will be on hand to host the event, likely throwing some zingers in the direction of Sheen and those seated at the dais. Set to join previously announced roasters Anthony Jeselnik, Steve-O, Jeffrey Ross and Mike Tyson are Jon Lovitz, Patrice O’Neal and Amy Schumer along with actress Kate Walsh. William Shatner will also be there, having once been subjected to his own roast.

I’m not entirely sure what the connection is between Kate Walsh and Charlie Sheen. If they’ve worked together on something, I’m not thinking of it right now, however it’s good to know there’s an actor on the dais there to offer a bit of ribbing on behalf of the TV community. Even more randomly, Guitarist Slash is also set to appear at the Roast, so we should be in for an entertaining night comedically and possibly musically.
