Roasting the King

Cedric the Entertainer is coming to Cleveland for the LeBron roast
On Sunday, January 28, LeBron James will be exchanging his throne for the hot seat at his very own Roast. Comedians Cedric the Entertainer, Paul Rodriguez, Ralphie May and Mo'Nique, as well as fellow Cav and team jester Damon Jones, will all share the mighty task of taking shots at James. Seeing as the Cavs will be facing off against the Phoenix Suns the night before, the celeb-studded line-up shouldn't lack material. The $1,000-a-ticket event will take place at the Cleveland Marriot. All proceeds will go to Boys Hope Girls Hope as well as the James Family Foundation. -- Denise Grollmus
