Need some laughs amid this crazy political season?

Miami Heat courtside reporter Jason Jackson will preside over the first annual Jax Celebrity Roast on Saturday night at the EPIC hotel in downtown Miami. Who will be on the butcher block? One of today’s most omnipresent local celebrities from the sports and entertainment world: DJ Irie.

Among those doing the verbal assaulting: former “Saturday Night Live” Finesse Mitchell; comedian and creator/executive producer of BET’s “Real Husbands of Hollywood” Chris Spencer; entertainment anchor and host of VH1’s “Dating Naked,” Rocsi Diaz; and Miami’s own Hits 97.3 radio host, DJ Laz.

No feelings will be spared, according to Jackson. “Not even I will be privy to the material being prepared for his ruin, and cameras will not be allowed inside the event,” he says, “giving an indication of how unpredictable and uncensored the roast will be.”
