Alec Baldwin to Get Roasted in Spike TV Special

“I am truly dreading this. But if Tracy Morgan is coming, it’ll be okay,” says “30 Rock” star

Alec Baldwin is set to be roasted in a one-night comedy special that’ll air on Spike TV, TheWrap has learned.

“One Night Only: Alec Baldwin” will be a black tie affair, set to include tributes from friends, videos, along with some “surprises.” No guests have been announced as of yet.

“I am dreading this. I am truly dreading this. But if Tracy Morgan is coming, it’ll be okay. Is Tracy coming?” Baldwin said in a statement.

The “One Night Only” event series is Spike TV’s answer to Comedy Central popular Roasts, in which celebrities mock the honoree. Previous subjects include Don Rickles and Eddie Murphy.

 

Executive producer Casey Patterson said in a statement: “When we spoke about this event he said ‘you overestimate the number of friends I have’ and I replied ‘you underestimate the number of people that will line up to have fun at your expense.'”

Spike notes that Baldwin is being honored for his long career in film, but also for his recent work in TV as Jack Donaghy in “30 Rock,” and as President Trump on “Saturday Night Live.”

The event will tape at the World Famous Apollo Theater in New York on Sunday, June 25 and will air on Spike TV on Sunday, July 9 at 9 p.m.
