Comedy Central Plans to Roast Nelson

Feb 5, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Get your IRS and marijuana jokes ready: Comedy Central is roasting country music star Willie Nelson.
The roast, marking the red-headed stranger’s 75th birthday, will be taped in Los Angeles on April 17 and air in early June.
Joel Gallen of Tenth Planet Productions will be executive producer for the roast. He also executive produced Comedy Central’s roasts of Flavor Flav, William Shatner and Pamela Anderson.
“Willie Nelson is the original outlaw who has blazed the way for so many in the music and entertainment industry,” said Elizabeth Porter, senior VP, specials and talent, Comedy Central. “We are honored to celebrate Willie’s 75th birthday with a night of smoking hot comedy.”
