Just ran across this from back in October. Some pretty good jokes and some familiar names.
Al Roker served as Roastmaster at this year’s Friars Club Roast of his “Today Show” co-host and friend Matt Lauer.
The capacity crowd at the New York Hilton Grand Ballroom boasted dozens of celebrity guests –Lauer’s co-hosts, and Donald Trump, Martha Stewart, Howard Stern and “The Queen of Soul” Aretha Franklin, who sang the National Anthem.
A few good lines:
Sarah Palin’s wardrobe — “in Elliot Spitzer dollars, that’s three hookers and a pony.”
“Al Roker is Barack Obama’s second favorite weatherman, after Bill Ayers.”
“Al Roker claims he’s had his stomach stapled. To what? A refrigerator?”
Similarities between Lauer and Sarah Palin: “Both spend $150,000 on clothes; both got screwed by Katie Couric; and both wear women’s jeans.”
