Roasting jokes 50th birthday combine for a hilarious party!
What better way to celebrate the big day than a fun-loving roasting! These roasts are very memorable and unique, no two are alike!
A birthday roast is a presentation honoring the birthday person in a funny way. It is filled with comedic insults (nothing demeaning or rude, just for fun), embarrassing stories, fun experiences, and heartwarming memories all about the person.
A number of close friends and family of the "roastee" are called upon to present their personal roasting anecdote.
There are some basics to structuring your roast event. You need to let your guests know that you are planning a roasting. You want to center your invitations around the event.
Here are some basic definitions to keep in mind when it comes to a roastings:
Roastee: This is the guest of honor. The target of the roast.
Roastmaster: This is the host of the event.
To structure this event, make sure you dedicate a Roastmaster. This person will host the event, it is handy if they are of a comedic nature and easily speak well in front of crowds.
With your invitations you can specify that your guests to prepare a short roast of their own. This will give plenty of content for the night - and likely a TON of laughs!
The guest of honor must have a good sense of humor - and that is a definite MUST! This type of event is a comedic play on the persons life, so they have to be okay with some good-natured jokes.
Now the more people you have the more roasting that occurs. It is great to make sure everyone knows the roastee well enough to join in the fun. It is good to have a close group of friends, and remember, the more people the more trouble it can cause. And good, fun warm-hearted trouble!
Your guests may even think up great jokes off the cuff and spur of the moment as they get into the spirit.
Roastings are not intended to be "negative"; they are just good-natured poking fun at the roastee. Now with these, as long as the comments and even insults are fun and good-natured it's okay - just make sure they are not hurtful.
This all depends on the person.
Things that can be off limits are things like:
If all your guests are close friends and family to the roastee most should know what is off limits. But it is always good idea to maybe coordinate the event so that all the guests are there before the guest of honor. This will give a little bit of time for everyone to go over some ground rules about the roast. It will ensure there are no awkward moments when someone says the wrong thing.
You might ask your guests to send you high points from their notes for the roast, so you can somewhat arrange for a nice flow of speakers.
For those who cannot attend, you can always have them send you something and the Roastmaster can present in their place.
Have a chair decorated like a throne and have the Roastee sit in it while you all present your stories.
Record! and take pictures!!! This will be a one of a kind event and completely unforgettable. This will be something great to look back on over the years.
Hopefully these tips will help you throw the best birthday roast possible!!
