Reiner roast on tap by Comedy Central

Cabler gained high ratings with Carey, Stiller

Comedy Central, which scored some of its highest ratings with edited versions of Friars Club roasts of Drew Carey in 1998 and Jerry Stiller in 1999, has lined up Rob Reiner to be the subject of this fall’s skewering.

The Reiner roast will take place at the New York Hilton on Oct. 6, and Comedy Central will cablecast a one-hour highlight special on Nov. 1 at 10 p.m. The Friars Club will announce the identities of the roasters later this summer.
