Bruce Forsyth: A Comedy Roast 1/3

Wednesday, April 7 on 4

A grand US tradition, the format of a ‘roast’, is a simple one: a group of people called ‘roasters’ gather together in front of a live audience to make fun of a subject and celebrate all that is good about the ‘roastee’. Bruce Forsyth is the first celebrity to receive his roasting. His ‘roasters’ include Jonathan Ross, Jack Dee, Jason Manford, Jon Culshaw, Sean Lock, Barry Cryer, and his wife Wilnelia. Sharon Osbourne: A Comedy Roast airs tomorrow night. Hosted by Jimmy Carr.
