COMEDY ROAST definition: “ROAST” is very much like a toast except that a particular individual will be presented in comedic insults, praise, outlandish true and untrue stories and heart-warming tributes. The implication being that the “ROASTEE” is able to take the jokes in good faith therefore showing his good nature. It is a great honour to be “ROASTED,” The Roastee will be surrounded by friends, fans and well-wishers who can also receive some of the same treatment during the course of the evening. Anyone who is honoured in such a way is said to have been “ROASTED.”
