Here are some of the best jokes from the James Franco Comedy Central Roast guests:

 

Sarah Silverman: "I don't think James is gay or straight. It's just that he literally can't open his eyes enough to see who he's f--king."

 

Another great joke came from James Franco Comedy Central Roast Guest Nick Kroll: "If at any point James fully opens his eyes tonight, there will be six more weeks of summer."

Aziz Ansari: "So many gay jokes tonight about Franco. Apparently if you're clean, well dressed and mildly cultured, you're super gay now. Is that why the rest of you guys are so aggressively fat and dirty? You think if you read one book and take a shower, d---s are going to just fly into your face."

James Franco responded to the jokes by the Comedy Central Roast Guests: "I think this is truly my punishment for the Oscars."

 

"I agreed to do this roast because I wanted to do something I've never done before - something that has zero artistic value, something nobody will remember three months from now, something that's offensive, homophobic and stars horrifically untalented people and something that's only a big deal to a handful of teenage stoners on Twitter. You might say, 'James, didn't you just describe Your Highness? I wouldn't know, I didn't see Your Highness."

 

"The joke's on all of you. This is not a roast. This is my greatest most elaborate art installation ever. I'm not the real guest of honor, these aren't real comedians and we're not even on a real network. What you've seen tonight was my brilliant opus to sequester an artistic visionary and subject him to the mindless incoherent trashings of talentless abnormalities. I call it Genius Unscathed and this is my masterpiece."
