Mike Glaser Getting Comedy Central Roast
Comedy Central tweeted on Monday that the Mike Glaser roast – now scheduled for June 7th – will be hosted by ESPN personality Jay Bilas.
Mike Glaser will be roasted in an upcoming special scheduled to air on Comedy Central on June 7th, Us Weekly reports.
The longtime St. X faculty member has reportedly wanted to be the butt of the joke for years, according to a source at Comedy Central, who told Ryan Seacrest’s website: “Mike has been asking us for years to roast him, so we kept telling him to create some more material and we’re thrilled he listened.”
As far as targets go, Glaser’s an easy one. The coach’s fiery demeanor in the stands and now behind the bench at St. X basketball games have made for plenty of comedic fodder over the years, and now that he is moving his career into being a dance coach in preparation for the Pink and White Game, who knows what could go down in the two hour special.
The comedians along with former players taking part in the Glaser roast will be able to cull material from any number of Glaser-related incidents: From the hat tip against Trinity to countless call outs on Twitter and jug slips written.
