Our Celeb Crush Natasha Leggero Stole the Show at the James Franco Roast
The Comedy Central Roasts are known for many things, and one of them is promoting up-and-coming and hilarious female comics. Lisa Lampanelli and Whitney Cummings both became household names thanks to celebrity roast appearances.
‘The Roast of James Franco’ might have been the coming-out party for Natasha Leggero. The funny and foxy female comic roasted not only Franco, but the other comedians on the dais. Here are some of Leggero’s funnier lines. Our favorite was this burn on all-around nice guy Jonah Hill. “Jonah was raised in Hollywood. And you can tell, he’s a name dropper with big tits and an eating disorder.” O-uch.
So who exactly is Natasha Leggero? Leggero is a frequent roundtable panelist on ‘Chelsea Lately’. She’s done stand-up on ‘The Tonight Show with Jay Leno’, ‘The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson’, ‘Last Call with Carson Daly’, and done multiple Comedy Central stand-up programs. She’s also the voice of Callie Maggotbone on the animated show ‘Ugly Americans’.
We’re positive Leggero will be all over the place in the next year. Just not at Jonah Hill’s house.
