Video Licks: “Charles Manson Roasts Dead Celebrities of 2017” ft. Ian Fidance
We are already knee deep in 2018 but that doesn’t mean we forgot about 2017. At the conclusion of that oh so memorable year, comedians gathered at New York’s the Creek & the Cave for a roast of dead celebrities who passed in that fateful year (some just dead in spirit). The roast, hosted by Raanan Hershberg as The Grim Reaper, it’s brainchild, included J.P. McDade as Adam West, Olivia Grace as Harvey Weinstein, Casey James Salengo as Hugh Hefner, Tommy McNamara as Tom Petty, Mark Parris as Little Finger, Jacob Williams as Jerry Lewis and, last but certainly not notorious, Ian Fidance as Charles Manson. This video captures Ian’s performance in all of it’s hilarious madness. Enjoy some of Character Assassination Presents “The Roast of 2017!” (WARNING: Kids, smoking is bad for you, as is conspiracy to commit the murder of seven people, but I think you already knew that.)
We would be remiss to mention that NYC comic Raanan Hershberg hosts a show roasting a different theme every month.
