It was a family affair for Ricky Schroder, who took quite a talking-to from the people who raised him – on-screen in '80s sitcom Silver Spoons, that is.

More than 25 years since their show ended in 1987, the actor reunited with Joel Higgins, who played Edward Stratton III, and Erin Gray, who played Kate Summers, at New York City's Friars Club, where he took a few fun-spirited digs at Friday's "So You Think You Can Roast!?" event.

"I'm the highlight of your careers," the former child star, 42, quipped back to his Silver Spoons costars.

Also poking fun at Schroder: roastmaster D. B. Sweeney and celeb judges Gilbert Gottfried, Seth Herzog and Alan Zweibel. The roast was part of the club's ongoing series, in which up-and-coming comedians are competing for the chance to roast Dennis Rodman. One comedian will ultimately win the opportunity to take down Jack Black in April.



As for Schroder, he took the jabs and jokes all in jest. "For those of you still wondering who I am," he added with a laugh, "I'm not the kid from A Christmas Story."
