The funny Artist/Comedian/Actor CRAIG GASS is pulling out his world-famous spicy rub for roasting Heavy Metal Icon and Celebrity Apprentice Dee Snider. On January 24, Revolver and Guitar World are thrilled to present The Rock & Roll Roast of Dee Snider!
These two heavy-weight sponsors have teamed up with MusiCares and AXS TV to bring you the first roast to ever be broadcast LIVE on television (not pre-taped and bleeped), LIVE from the Grove of Anaheim with 2013 Honoree Dee Snider. This great night of comedy, calamity, charity and chaos, including the comedic talent of GRAIG GASS, can’t be missed. The Roast will feature: Legendary Roastmaster Penn Jillette, and a celebrity dais including; Zakk Wylde, Jim Norton, Lita Ford, Eddie Trunk, Scott Ian, Jim Florentine, Craig Gass & Mick Foley. More importantly, a portion of the proceeds from The Rock & Roll Roast of Dee Snider will go to charity.
GASS, who also famously roasted Gene Simmons a few years back, has played memorable characters on such TV shows as Sex and The City, Law and Order, King of Queens and Gene Simmons Family Jewels, and most recently has been doing voice over work on the shows Family Guy, American Dad and The Cleveland. GASSbegan performing stand-up comedy in 1993. His dead-on impressions caught the attention of two icons of the entertainment community, Howard Stern and George Carlin. Carlin took the young comedian under his wing and GASS’ idol quickly became his mentor.
The pathway to impressions and stand-up comedy appears to be GASS’ destiny from the very beginning. Growing up in a family that was completely deaf, GASS learned to speak from TV. His debut comedy album/DVD is due out later this spring on Oglio Records and will coincide with a North American tour. Early dates include January 25 & 26 in Dallas at the AT&T Performing Arts Center as well as March 29 in Toronto at the Panasonic Theatre.
