Comedy Central to roast Bruce Willis in summer 2018

It has been a couple of years since the most recent Comedy Central Roast (Rob Lowe, 2016, in case you had forgotten).

Well, time’s up.

Um, maybe not those words. But there will be a new Comedy Central Roast this summer, and the Roastee will be Bruce Willis. It’ll tape in Los Angeles, with details announced later.

“This ain’t the first time I’ll be tied to a chair and held hostage by a group of humorless assholes for a couple hours,” said Willis.

“Bruce has survived terrorists, Armageddon, romance and death itself. Yet, nothing has prepared him for this Roast,” said Kent Alterman, Comedy Central’s president.
