Legendary pro wrestler the Iron Sheik will catch plenty of heat when a stable of the country’s best comedians, former grapplers and special surprise guests gather ringside at comedy mecca Carolines on Broadway for The Roast of the Iron Sheik, hosted by Hot 97?s Peter Rosenberg. It’ll be the ultimate “screw job” when The Sheik faces a hilarious no-holds-barred assault that would make even the toughest heel tap out.

You won’t want to miss out on all the “mania,” so get your tickets now. Roasters to be announced shortly.

Tickets go on sale Wednesday Mar 6, 2013 10:00 AM EST.
