Celebrity Roasts

The Dean Martin Celebrity Roast was a NBC show hosted by Dean Martin from 1974 to 1984. These roasts were patterned after the roasts held at the Friars' Club in New York City. The format had celebrity guests seated at a table, and the guest of honor was affectionately chided/insulted about his career by his friends. Comedy Central then re-booted the format in 1998 and televised the annual roasts of the New York Friars' Club. After the original 5-year agreement expired, the network began producing its own roasts in the same spirit.
