Trump, Epstein and Woody Allen Jokes Aplenty at Alec Baldwin Roast
Alec Baldwin was in the hot seat Saturday night at Beverly Hills' Saban Theater for a new Comedy Central roast, and, per usual, it was brutal.
Numerous digs were taken at the actor for his behavior and temper over the years, but mixed in amongst the quips were jokes about President Donald Trump and Jeffrey Epstein, among other subjects.
NBA star Blake Griffin joked that fellow roaster Nikki Glaser was "kicked off Epstein's island for networking."
Griffin also worked in a shot at Kevin Spacey, joking that when Baldwin did Glengarry Glen Ross with the now-disgraced actor, Baldwin should have told Spacey that "ABC doesn't mean 'Always Blow Children.'"
Adam Carolla quipped that Baldwin's best friend could not make the roast because "he hanged himself in a New York prison cell," again referencing Epstein.
Meanwhile, Robert De Niro took multiple shots at Trump, saying Baldwin "fucking nails" playing the president on NBC's Saturday Night Live.
De Niro also had a Woody Allen joke: “Alec and Woody Allen have a lot in common, except Alec only screamed at his daughter, and Woody, well...”
Caitlyn Jenner gave as good as she got, but was the target of numerous jokes about her transition.
“I can’t believe you’re here,” roast master Sean Hayes told her. “Wow, you’ve got balls, girl.”
Glaser also targeted Jenner. “You’re a Republican — I don’t know why,” she said. “You’ve already gained control over a woman’s body.”
De Niro said to Jenner, “There’s something different about you, but I can’t put my finger in it.”
Jenner fired back in her set and got some of the biggest laughs of the night.
“Take a good look, kids. This is what happens when you eat your Wheaties every morning," she said.
Jenner also had a message to anyone who does not support the trans community: “You can suck my dick…if you can find it!"
The Comedy Central Roast of Alec Baldwin is set to air Sept. 15 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
