This is kind of cool.
So a bunch of guys not known for their humor, but more for their impassioned voices and instrumental abilities, will attempt to roast Corey Taylor of Slipknot soon.
Some actual comedians will also take part, good thing.
What’s billed as “The Monster Energy Roast On The Range With Corey Taylor” is now scheduled for May 15 at LC Pavilion in Columbus, Ohio.
The event will honor and lampoon the Stone Sour vocalist, with nearly a dozen roasters booked for the big day.
The roastmaster will be fucking Sebastian Bach.
The third annual event in Revolver and Guitar World’s Rock & Roll Roast Comedy Series launches the weekend-long festivities forRock On The Range.
Joining Sebastian Bach on the dais to take aim at Taylor will be an all-star group of musicians and comedians, including Jim Florentine, Don Jamieson, Craig Gass, Brian Posehn, Taylor’s Slipknot bandmate M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan, Anthrax’s Scott Ian, Pearl Aday, and actor-slash-comedian Finesse Mitchell.
They should get me to roast Corey. Between now and then I could come up with a killer set that would leave Taylor in tears.
Well, maybe not in tears. Dude seems way too confident and assured to take anything to heart.
Tickets for the Monster Energy Roast On The Range With Corey Taylor are on sale now starting at $75 (plus fees).
General admission and balcony seating is available. Doors for the May 15 event will open at 8:30 p.m., and the Roast begins at 9:00 p.m.
