The Situation fails at Donald Trump roast: Watch Mike Sorrentino's uninspired jabs
The thing about a celebrity roast is that it's supposed to be mean, but it's also supposed to be funny. When "Jersey Shore's" Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino took the stage at Donald Trump's Comedy Central Roast, which aired Tuesday night, he did pretty much the same thing he does on MTV every week.
He embarrassed himself.
"Maybe comedy ain't my game right now," the SItch said. Hello, understatement. As he draped himself all over Jeffrey Ross, Sorrentino's attempts at jokes made us wrinkle up our noses in distaste. To put it in terms he'd understand, we'd take a grated-cheese grenade over him any day.
Sorrentino referred to Trump as "Chump," which wasn't hilarious, but wasn't terrible. He then called Marlee Matlin "ugly" and Lisa Lampanelli "fat." When he went on to make a racist joke about Snoop Dogg, fellow roaster Jeffrey Ross stepped in. Ross more or less had to hold the Situation up at the podium, saving the day by showing off his belly.
To make it worse, according to Lampanelli, Sitch had no idea how much he sucked. "When The Situation tanked really bad he came up to us and said 'That was good, right?' I should go through life that delusional," she said. "I really wish I loved myself that much."
Ouch. Watch a snippet of the crash-and-burn below.
