Aziz Ansari? Check.

Jonah Hill? Check.

Bill Hader? Check.

Andy Samberg? Check.

Sarah Silverman? Check.

Nick Kroll? Check.

Natasha Leggero? Check.

Obligatory appearance from Jeff Ross? Check.

The only thing that could make this better would be a surprise RiFF RaFF performance at halftime.

It will be split up by short bits from Franco's buddy and roast master, Seth Rogen. The whole thing goes down this weekend and is set to premiere on Comedy Central on September 2nd, so go ahead and circle your calendars or set your DVRs or program your robot butler to remind you about it.
