Hasty Pudding Celebrity Roasts
The Hasty Pudding Roasts are a long-standing tradition of the Hasty Pudding Theatricals, the oldest undergraduate drama troupe in the United States. The comedic roasts have been held annually since the 1940s and take place at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Each year, the event honors a notable public figure, who is serenaded, praised, and humorously criticized by members of the Hasty Pudding Theatricals. The event is renowned as one of the oldest and most prestigious comedy events in the world.
Charles River Media Group has been working with the Hasty Pudding Theatricals since 2009 and has been an integral part of filming the event. Over the years, CRMG has filmed the press conferences and live-streamed the event, as well as recorded the show itself. Some of the honorees that CRMG has filmed include Jay Leno, Anne Hathaway, James Franco, Ryan Reynolds, Kerry Washington, Bryce Dallas Howard, Dame Helen Mirren, Jennifer Coolidge, and Bob Odenkirk.
