One wonders if the fan, which has been featured prominently in the narrative for the various advertisements for this show, will make an appearance?
IMO, Shatner roasts himself just by being himself.
That's an astute observation. I think ole Bill's parodying himself at times in his role as Denny Crane on Boston Legal. He really is great as that character.
kevin.......pollack......will....more.... then.....likely..... will....do.....his.....impression..... of......shatner.(..... equals shatner pauses).
I think it is going to be brutal. They are going to rip him a new one.
I saw the one with Pamela Anderson, and even I was totally shocked at what was said, truly evil but funny as hell. ~
i want see them roast Jerry Seinfeld.
Shatner stars in a series of breakfast cerial ads in the UK, he is good at Roasting himself lol.

Thousands will descend on Las Vegas, Nevada this weekend...Shatner and Nimoy, both 75, will be on hand to sign autographs at the convention which will feature four days of Trek seminars and fan meetings. Turkish Press
The Shatner Roast was hilarious! Nothing, and I mean nothing, was held back.
That roast was disgusting, obscene, politically incorrect, gender biased, rude, vulgar, embarrassing, disrespectful, cheap, insulting, and no one involved thought about the children.
In other words, it was hilarious, original, and inspired! WTG, Comedy Central!
I could quote some the remarks (many of which got "bleeped" by the censors who don't seem to realize most folks can fill in the blank from the context, thank you for protecting our children, FCC), but I'd get banned. Nuts!
I'm Not Evil.
An evil person would do the things that pop into my head.
I heart the Secret Stash.
The only problem I had with it is they spent so much time on other people. Should have been more roasting of Shatner and less of others
That seems typical of any roast I've seen.
I'd say George Takei had the funniest jokes out of everyone up there.
Some of it was really funny, however most were groan inducing [Get off the stage you moron] comedians. I love the disgusting and vile humor when i hear it. Its usualy some of the funniest stuf out there. But every darn comedian said basically the same darn jokes.
Takei was hilarious and so was Alexander in his intro. Betty white or whatever her name is was great too. Frankly the rest sucked or were only giggle inducing. I really wish they just took farah fawcett off the stage. She was just...uggghhh...Why was she even there?
I mean a real roast should of been more Trek cast members and 90% of the jokes on Shatner, not the other way around like this one was.
I agree that Farah shouldn't have been there but I found everyone else who actually took the mic to be quite funny.
I believe it is common in roasts for everyone to be fair game.
When they used to play the Friars' Club roasts, those roasts would actually be primarily aimed at the roast-ee, not the audience. One or two cheap shots at Abe Vigoda was fine, but if it was Rob Reiner's roast, most of the jokes were actually about Rob Reiner.
"Now everyone was giving her that kind of look UFOlogists get when they suddenly say, 'Hey, if you shade your eyes you can see it is just a flock of geese after all.'"

I wasn't particularly impressed with the "quality" of the humor. It seemed like everyone was "trying" to hard...as if they equated being off-color with being funny...
There was certainly nothing funny about the AIDS "jokes".
