Towards the end when Pamela Anderson is giving her closing monologue, the lighting shows that you can see her shirt. She realized this and was a good sport about it even poking fun at herself and her shirt choice. See more »

Very crude and definitely for adults, but outrageously funny
3 September 2005 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

This program had caught my interest weeks before its air date. Something about it appealed to me, although I didn't expect much. I thought it would be a cheap piece of exploitation - typical Comedy Central trash. To some extent, I was right. It's very vulgar, very crude, and very, very raunchy.

But I was surprised at just how funny it was. I was laughing so hard I fell off my sofa and almost cried - it's outrageous stuff. The comedians assembled for the roast are all very talented, and they each deliver their own speech - it's like watching a Greatest Hits compilation of various comedians delivering their best jokes.

The guests at the roast are quite famous faces. David Spade (through video communication), Tommy Lee, Andy Dick, Adam Carolla, Courtney Love, Anna Nicole Smith in the audience, Jimmy Kimmell, and so on and so forth. All very sleazy celebrities for the most part, they add to the program's raunchiness.

I was shocked by just how much they got away with. The jokes are some of the most explicit I've heard uttered on television - they were bleeped out the first time Comedy Central played it, but a lot of the stuff made it through - primarily the names of vital body organs.

My only problem with the show is that it's so sleazy it's almost a bit sick to find yourself watching it. And too much time is spent focusing on Tommy Lee's famous physical attribute - every comedian cracked a joke about his schlong and Andy Dick even simulated oral sex on him. It got lame after a while. A few days after it aired, Tommy Lee said, "I got tired of all the jokes being about me. You know, it's for her, it's like...here she is, focus on her." And I agree with him, it got to be tiring after a while.

Nevertheless for the most part this is a very funny (if very, very crude) "Roast" and Pamela Anderson was a good sport through it all. She endured a lot of verbal humiliation and took it in good spirit.

I personally enjoyed most of it and even got a chance to see Tommy perform his new single from the album "Tommyland the Ride." It's a really good song and it's a solid performance.

At the end of the day you may find yourself shocked by the content in this program, and perhaps you might even feel a bit ashamed to be watching it, but if you can ignore its crudity it really is one of the funniest programs ever aired on television - it attracted 16 Million viewers, one of the highest rated Comedy Central programs in history. Apparently word traveled fast.
