Padma Lakshmi to get `roasted` in comedy contest
New York: Actors Padma Lakshmi, Rick Schroder and former NBA star Dennis Rodman are volunteering to be "roasted" at a comic competition.
The celebs have dumped their egos to be comically insulted at the amateur "roast-off" contest series at the Friars Club, reported New York Post.
On February 1, the club is launching a "So You Think You Can Roast" competition among amateurs, who believe themselves to be funny, in which comics who passed auditions last week get to skewer that trio of personalities.
The winner will get a chance to roast Jack Black at the Friars` annual send-up April 5 at the New York Hilton.
‘Top Chef’ host Lakshmi will be roasted on February 1, and her show`s co-star, Tom Colicchio, has signed on as an amateur roaster.
