For one night only, Superman will finally get what’s coming to him. Just what that is, remains to be seen.
The Los Angeles-based variety act Captured Aural Phantasy Theater will stage a celebrity roast of the Man of Steel Sept. 8 at the historic El Cid as part of a show titled Superhero Variety Hour. Members of the group will play characters from DC Comics, including Lois Lane, Lex Luthor and Superman himself, as well as an unexpected host — Dean Martin. Inspired by the celebrity roasts of the 1970s (and Comedy Central’s recent revivals), actors will play the various parts.
