Comedy Central is set to run a few encore presentations of the Roast of Donald Trump comedy special, which was originally broadcasted in 2011.

Watching this might be therapeutic for those out there who don’t like the president…

Back in 2011, Donald Trump, star of The Celebrity Apprentice, was far from becoming a politician. Always happy to take on a TV gig, he appeared on Comedy Central for the Roast of Donald Trump special. Those who didn’t care much for the reality TV personality were able to enjoy seeing him put on blast with some harsh (but accurate) jokes hurled his way.

Years later, Trump is now the president, and no longer willing to be roasted. He will not attend any of the White House Correspondence Dinners, unlike the presidents before him. So the Comedy Central roast from 2011 seems to be the last one we’ll be getting (at least while Trump is still president). So perhaps it’s time to revisit the comedy special!

Several big names took part in the Trump roast. Roasters include Whitney Cummings, Anthony Jeselnik, Larry King, Marlee Matlin, Snoop Dogg Gilbert Gottfried, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, and of course the Roast Master himself, Jeff Ross. The Situation turned in a less-than-stellar performance, but everyone else’s jokes were well received by the audience.

Over the next several days, Comedy Central is going to run encore presentations of the special, via TheInterrobang. The first showing will be on the evening of April 26 at 9:30 p.m., with follow-up encores airing on April 27 at midnight and April 29 at 11 p.m.
