Roasted deadmau5 anyone?
From Charlie Sheen to Pam Anderson to Hugh Hefner and to Flavor Flav, some of the most hilarious Comedy Central Roasts involve a roastee with tonnes of baggage and personal as well as professional troubles to poke at. The 14th annual and most recent Comedy Central Roast, aired on March 30th, placed pop star and Platinum selling singer/songwriter Justin Bieber on the hot seat.
Yesterday, the network announced that the biggest troll in the dance music community, Joel Zimmerman more commonly known as deadmau5 has been selected to be next year’s roastee. The IDMA and JUNO award-winning Canadian superstar producer will headline the 15th annual Comedy Central Roast with a stacked lineup of roastmasters who are all set to turn up the heat.
“Joel has been asking for it for years. We didn’t even have to ask him to go create more source material first, like we had to with Beiber. We’re thrilled!” said Kent Alterman, President of Content Development & Original Programming at Comedy Central
The “Comedy Central Roast of deadmau5” (#Mau5Roast) will be taped in Los Angeles. Tape and airdate is to be announced.
Personally, we can’t wait for this to happen because, seriously, who doesn’t want to watch deadmau5 getting burned? 😉
