Comedy Central’s funniest roast masters are heading to the nation’s capital on Friday for a two-hour laugh-out-loud Hillary Clinton fundraiser.

The “evening of comedy” includes big names: Amy Schumer, Jeff Ross, Andy Kindler, and Rachel Feinstein, as well as “other special guests,” according to the invite.

Minnesota senator and “Saturday Night Live” alum Al Franken is emceeing the night.

Tickets for the Clinton comedy fest, held in downtown D.C., start at $500. For a cool $1,000 you can get reserved seats. Those contributing $2,700 get “preferred seating.” Contributors who donate or raise $25,000 get to “co-host” a reception with Sen. Franken.

The event starts Friday, September 23, at 5:00 p.m. ET and goes until 7:30 p.m. and will be hosted by Democratic superlobbyist Heather Podesta and filmmaker Stephen Kessler, whose director credits include the 1997 comedy “Vegas Vacation.

Now the big question, of course: Who will they be roasting?

We’ll give you one hint. His last name rhymes with “dump” — which, come to think of it, will be kinda what they’ll be doing.

Earlier this month, Barbra Streisand mocked the GOP nominee with a tweaked rendition of “Send in the Clowns” at a New York City LGBT fundraiser for Clinton.

The new version included this stanza:

“Is he that rich?
Maybe he’s poor?
‘Til he reveals his returns
Who can be sure?
Who needs this clown?”
