The realm of the Roast is a place where decency goes to die, where people’s cruelest instincts are unleashed on their fellow man and where dick jokes are traded like hellos. In other words, it’s ugly. Graciously, we provided the event’s luminaries with the opportunity to hold onto a memory of their pre-Roast innocence at our selfie station before getting filthy in the mudslinging.

Drunk History’s Derek Waters and Steve Berg may be in the throes of merriment now, but it’s going to take more than a night of drinking to forget the savagery they’re about to witness.

Look at this obscenely handsome man. We can’t wait for the dais to knock the smile off that infuriatingly flawless face.
