Comedy Central’s funniest roast masters are heading to the nation’s capital on Friday for a two-hour laugh-out-loud Hillary Clinton fundraiser.
Minnesota senator and “Saturday Night Live” alum Al Franken is emceeing the night.
Tickets for the Clinton comedy fest, held in downtown D.C., start at $500. For a cool $1,000 you can get reserved seats. Those contributing $2,700 get “preferred seating.” Contributors who donate or raise $25,000 get to “co-host” a reception with Sen. Franken.
The event starts Friday, September 23, at 5:00 p.m. ET and goes until 7:30 p.m. and will be hosted by Democratic superlobbyist Heather Podesta and filmmaker Stephen Kessler, whose director credits include the 1997 comedy “Vegas Vacation.“
Now the big question, of course: Who will they be roasting?
We’ll give you one hint. His last name rhymes with “dump” — which, come to think of it, will be kinda what they’ll be doing.
Earlier this month, Barbra Streisand mocked the GOP nominee with a tweaked rendition of “Send in the Clowns” at a New York City LGBT fundraiser for Clinton.
The new version included this stanza:
“Is he that rich?
Maybe he’s poor?
‘Til he reveals his returns
Who can be sure?
Who needs this clown?”
