A pilot special sales/promotional presentation tape demo presented by Four Star International pitching television stations to consider purchasing this series of 26 one hour episodes comprising 250 comedy stars and performances. Announcer and off camera host states the nature of the series... a celebrity is "roasted" similar to a Friar's Roast. The setting is that of a smart Hollywood hotel. Entertainment accompanies testimonial roasts by guest celebrities who perform in this pilot. Never televised.
