Comedy legends Milton Berle, Pat McCormick, Slappy White, Pat Buttram, Jackie Vernon, Henny Youngman, and Dick Shawn roast some of the biggest stars in show business on this hysterically funny CD.
Find out what goes on behind closed doors at those infamous “celebrity roasts”. Now for the first time ever, you have a front row seat, and listen as the greatest “roastmaster” of them all, the late Milton Berle, delivers his unique brand of stinging one-liners to some of the most famous people in comedy. The “stage roast” was a tradition in show business as a means to raise money for worthwhile charities. Tickets were available only to members of show business private clubs and their guests, and would cost as much as $250.00 each. The comedians and stars would allow themselves to be torn to shreds, with the most explicit language ever heard. Over the years, millions of dollars were raised and donated to hospitals, underprivileged children’s organizations, senior citizen homes, and many other charities. No women were allowed to attend these affairs during the time period that these events took place, as the material was considered too offensive for delicate ears. Laugh.com is committed to preserving classic comedy for future generations, and your purchase of this CD will support our efforts. Thank you.
