Shatner Roast On Comedy Central Now

Jason Alexander just finished. He didn't seem very funny, but I came in late.

Allah: Here's an okay part. Artie Lang, 40 minutes in.

"Lisa Lampenelli, you're an overweight, annoying female comic. You're seven horrible movies away from being Jeneane Garofalo.

"A lot of people might say, why hit Jeneane? She's not here to defend herself. And the answer is simple. I've met Jeneane and she's an [explitive adjective] [explitive genital]."

It's somewhere on the Funny-True continuum.

About :56 in is a good montage of Shatner's "singing" efforts.

Next up, Andy Dick reads a Kirk/Spock slash story. Humorous.

You know, watching Shatner's singing, I find it difficult to come to any other conclusion than that he's actually insane.

Yes, I know it's all an ironic goof when he does it now.

But it wasn't then. He meant it.

He's a lunatic. There is no other way to explain this stuff.

Patton Oswald is going into what the name "Shatner" sounds like. You know what the name "Patton Oswald" sounds like? "Not funny." This is one of those comedians who has a career owing only to his liberal politics. David Cross is liberal and obnoxious and nasty, but he is, actually, often pretty funny.

I have never laughed a single time at Patton Oswald. He should be dripping flop-sweat all the time, but he's somehow convinced himself he's funny, so projects the easy confidence of a veteran comic. But-- no laughs.
