Jonas Brothers to be roasted in Netflix comedy special
The original teenage boyband the Jonas Brothers will be roasted by Jeffrey Ross and Hannibal Buress in a show for Netflix called Night of Too Many Stars: America Unites for Autism Programs.
Jonas Brothers (@JonasBrothers) To date, we’ve raised close to $2m dollars for autism research! Add that to our original night, and we are on our way to raising even more for the cause. https://t.co/pwgudwD0X7 #AutismNight pic.twitter.com/ksmbOGf0Ic
The trio will join Ross and Buress for a panel game where each actor can weigh in on the other performers to get laughs from the audience. The HBO special, held in New York, was a success with Jimmy Fallon as a regular plus Jon Stewart and Anthony Anderson, who will host the Netflix special.
“It’s a poignant evening,” Buress said. “Our generation has been raised with sensitivity and sensitivity boxes. We need to get over it, because they are making us feel bad.”
The pair will perform, as well as talk with each other and comedians Adele Gomez, Reggie Watts, Natasha Leggero, Darrell Hammond, Anthony Jeselnik, Will Forte, Jim Norton, Mark Normand, Jillian Bell, Rita Rudner, and Desus Nice.
The brothers, Kevin, Joe and Nick Jonas, rose to fame in 2005. They formed on the Disney Channel show Jonas, and have released four studio albums, including Just in Time, which went platinum.
Night of Too Many Stars: America Unites for Autism Programs will be hosted by Colbert but will feature spots by Jon Stewart, Morgan Freeman, Roseanne Barr, etc
