I just watched the Roast of William Shatner and it was all in all rather funny. I’ve always loved the roasts. The first one I saw was roasting Hugh Hefner which was hilarious. Followed by Chevy Chase, which was ok. Then roasting Pamela Anderson, and finally now William Shatner. I’m not much a a Star Trek fan (surprise! surprise!) and the number of Star Trek episodes I’ve seen, I can probably count on one of my hands. So before when someone would say the captain in Star Trek, I would always think of Picard (also plays
Magneto from X-Men).
There’s not going to be any spoilers sections here as there won’t be any spoilers. I mean, come on, it’s a roast, sort of like a stand-up comedy. If you ask if I could recognize today’s Shatner with the Shatner from the Star Trek series… my oh my, he’s gotten fat. The jokes were dirty and crude, but it was all in the spirit.
The only thing I really knew about Shatner before watching this roast was the fact that Stewie from Family Guy made fun of him: Stewie Griffin vs William Shatner: Rocketman.
Did I mention he’s gotten really fat?
