Time to hassle the Hoff at the rudest, raunchiest television event of the year--The Comedy Central Roast of David Hasselhoff. From running in slo-mo on the beach to inspiring Germany with the power of cheesy pop--it's almost too easy.

My basic thoughts on the roast and what I found to be a little but debatable.
3 March 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This was almost hurtful to watch, I think the rumor has gotten around enough that Chevy was a "little" bit difficult to work with at times but this was completely out of hand and as we all know from the articles, he did not handle it well.

I understand the reasoning that in a roast, the roastee has to develop a thicker skin before walking out there and that some of the stuff might get a little bit harsh, but usually there's a sense of joke to them in the voice of the person delivering the puns, in this case, everything said sounded almost hostile. With no humor added at all.

I personally love Chevy as an actor and an artists because I think he's one of the funniest actors/comedians of his time. I didn't like however, watching the poor guy tear up behind his glasses because people are speaking to him with a sense of cruelness.
