For all that Alec Baldwin is known to get laughs at other people's expense -- namely, the president of the United States -- he's also willing to put himself in the hot seat.
Comedy Central has announced that it will debut "The Roast of Alec Baldwin" this summer. The upcoming special is the latest in the "Comedy Central Roast" series, and this time, Baldwin has been offered up as tribute. The network has been holding roasts since the early 2000s with past roastees such as Bruce Willis, Roseanne Barr, and Bob Saget.
As this year's target, Baldwin will have to prepare himself for some serious burns. He'll be roasted in front of an audience by a group of comedians. The taping will take place in New York, but the date has not been announced yet. In the meantime, Baldwin seems to be gamely looking forward to it.
"Getting roasted will be the greatest honor of my lifetime besides being a father, a husband, hosting SNL seventeen times, receiving Golden Globes, Emmys, and working with Martin Scorsese," he quipped in a statement.
Here's the promo for the roast:
