The Friars Club Roast at midtown Manhattan’s Hilton New York hotel on Wednesday Roasted Quentin Tarantino with Samuel L. Jackson, Uma Thurman, Brett Ratner, Harvey Keitel, Sarah Silverman, Kathy Griffin and other getting a few jabs in at Tarantino’s expense in front of a live audience of over 2000 people
Jackson, who served as roastmaster, called Tarantino “a walking spaghetti Western” and cited his early love for Elvis Presley and interest in diverse film genres, including urban movies. He then quipped that he wanted to make sure to introduce Tarantino the way he would want it — as “Quentin Super Fly Tarantino Presley.”
And then we have Rob Schneider (Duece Bigalow, Male Gigalo) who delivered one of most incendiary comments of the night. Among his jokes, he said he knew why John Travolta, who sent a congratulatory note for Tarantino, was absent from the event. “There was a “Fags in Denial Who Believe in Aliens” convention,” Schneider quipped
*GASP!* I know the F** word is taboo. But does it make me a horrible person if I find it funny?
The question for Manhattan CST now is going to be who got Schneider first.
The Scientologists or GLAAD.
