Well-Done Herzog

He’s not exactly Larry the Cable Guy, who was roasted on Comedy Central last month, but former Comedy Central boss Doug Herzog will be feeling a bit of heat on April 23.

Mr. Herzog, now president of MTV Networks Entertainment Group, is being honored by the UJA Federation of New York’s Entertainment, Media and Communications Division at the B.B. King Blues Club & Grill in Times Square. Unfortunately for Mr. Herzog, comedian Joan Rivers, “Daily Show” correspondent John Oliver and Jon Stewart himself will be taking part in the ceremony. “Let’s face it, I look forward to the UJA making me look great while Joan Rivers, John Oliver and Jon Stewart make me look the exact opposite of great,” Mr. Herzog said. If he’s really nervous, he can always call CNBC’s Jim Cramer for pointers on what not to do.
