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.
Billionaire Donald Trump is roasted on Comedy Central by Jeffrey Ross, Seth MacFarlane, Gilbert Gottfried, Whitney Cummings, Snoop Dogg, Larry King, Marlee Matlin, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, Lisa Lampanelli and Anthony Jeselnic.
Lisa Lampinelli hosts the Comedy Central Roast of Larry the Cable Guy with Toby Keith, Warren Sapp, Jeff Foxworthy, Greg Giraldo, Nick DiPaolo, Gary Busey, Jeff Ross and Maureen McCormack among others.
Larry the Cable Guy,
I am a big fan of Jeff Foxworthy. The Blue Collar Tour movies and Blue Collar TV are hilarious. Unfortunately, this roast did not follow in their foot steps. I, usually, think Larry the Cable Guy is very funny, but not this time. His comments about Corky from Life Goes On were totally uncalled for. To make such a comment about a person born with Down Syndrome was in poor taste. His comment about Christopher Reeve sat badly with me, also. If I was a member of Mr. Reeve's family I would have liked it even less than I did. Several made comments about Jeff's 'clean' comedy, but they chose not to follow in his footsteps by repeating such words as f**k over and over. When will they learn four letter words are not what makes a comedian. This show put down others more than it did Jeff Foxworthy. It attacked those with Down Syndrome, Mexicans, gays and, of course, the South, as well as others. If you were a comedian on this show, you might want to take lessons from Mr. Jeff Foxworthy. This show fell short of the usual Foxworthy standards.
