There are two types of comedians on this earth, stand-up comedians that can make people laugh with excellent timing and great stories that land with any audience and professional roasters.
A roaster is a man or woman that can destroy a person with a one-liner that makes an audience fall out of their chairs. There is a level of talent that goes along with being a successful roaster. One can’t just simply walk onto a dais and expect to be great, they have to earn it.
Comedians have tried and failed at roasting. It isn’t for everyone. However, every now and then, we find greatness in someone. A comedian steps into the ring and knocks us out one by one. Players like Greg Giraldo (RIP), Don Rickles, Jeffrey Ross, and Foster Brooks make roasting worth watching because without men like them, it would be just another show to turn off.
