Last night, Comedy Central aired their Roast of James Franco, which was taped last week in Los Angeles. The event included many of the actor’s friends and then some; there was Seth Rogen, Aziz Ansari, Andy Samberg, Bill Hader, Sarah Silverman, Jeff Ross, Natasha Leggero, Nick Kroll, and Jonah Hill. Check out some of the roast’s video highlights below:
Most of the jokes offered throughout the night were pretty obvious. The comedians poked fun at Franco’s career choices, his sexual orientation, his lazy hosting job at the Oscars, etc. But Franco welcomed every word of ridicule with an ‘idk’ shrug. He seems to already be aware of his James Franco-ness, so nothing can really offend him (and that, unfortunately, took some of the fun out of the roast). Any who, did we mention the gay jokes? There were a lot of them. We mean a lot. Check out the clips below:
