DRIED ROAST

WATCH: What’s So Funny About James Franco Having Gay Sex? Nothing, Apparently

Like a lot of gays, comic Guy Branum got his Andrew Christian panties in a bunch after watching the Comedy Central roast of James Franco, where panelists spent a little too much time mocking Franco’s sexuality.

On a recent episode of the FX comedy show Totally Biased, Branum roasted the Franco roast. “I’ve never heard that much conversation about homosexual sex, and I spend most of my life engaged in conversations about homosexual sex,” he began. “Why? Because the guys on that stage think that gay sex is ridiculous. They think it’s hilarious. Let me be clear: if you think gay sex is hilarious, you’re doing it wrong.”

I agree with Branum to a point, but if I’m being honest, sometimes—all the time—gay sex jokes really do it for me, especially if they’re made while I’m doing gay sex. That said, context is everything, and a bunch of straight guys joking about another straight guy taking it in the butt is just plain lazy. Lazy like Jeff Ross on chest day at the gym.

In the end, the gay jokes were not what offended me most about the Franco roast. What bothered me was the fact that actors Seth Rogen and Jonah Hill continue to mistake themselves for comics. Stick to a script someone else has written for you, boys, and maybe the world will be a less insufferable place. Probably not, but maybe.

      Someone apparently forgot to tell them that “Roasts” are supposed to be funny.

      I watched that roast and some of it just made me laugh out loud. Some of the offhand gay jokes were hysterical. The low point was Andy Samberg whose attempt at anti-humor was a big dud. As was the fact that it was a skit rather than good roast material. But most of the digs at each other and Franco by everyone involved were great.

      If Gottfried isn’t on to drop bombs, I’m not interested.

      @Kieran:

      The Dean Martin roasts from the seventies still make me laugh today.

      I still don’t understand how Jonah Hill & Seth Rogen were both at the roast. Aren’t they both the same person?
