Tonight is the Oddball Comedy and Curiosity Festival.
We wanted to show tonight's headliners some love in a way that's familiar to them, and as comforting as a venereal disease — some comedy roastin'.
Though this might not be the New York Friars Club, CL Art Breaker is roasting online by asking some Tampa Bay funny people and writers to help CL take pot shots at at the five celebrity headliners: Louis C.K., Marc Maron, Aziz Ansari, Hannibal Buress and Jeffrey Ross,
who'll all be taking the stage tonight at the MIdFlorida Credit Union Amphiteatre Amphitheatre in Tampa. The event begins at 5 p.m. Show up and see if these guys can stand the Florida August heat, which will put any roast to shame.

Aziz Ansari’s jokes are like bad pizza, the best part about 'em is the delivery. — Natalie Campisi, writer
The morale at the Best Buy Geek Squad has never recovered from Aziz Ansari's unfathomable success and departure ... I heard Weird Al's favorite kazoo is considering suing Aziz's voice for copyright infringement. —CL Contributor Kevin Tall
1990 called and wants Richard Lewis back — but less metrosexual. —CL A&E Editor Julie Garisto
Marc Maron: the answer to an SAT question nobody asked about social anxiety disorder.— CL Managing/Online Editor Scott Harrell
Jeffrey Ross is a cross between Mel Brooks and Horseshack from Welcome Back, Kotter
, and that’s just his face. — Natalie Campisi, writer

All of 'em
Five people invited to perform comedy because they play such great golf... not the other way around. —Artist/bartender Charlie Doan
