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.

Storyline

All hail the queen! The Lovable Queen Of Mean is at it again...and no one is immune as Lisa takes off the gloves and delivers an unrelenting barrage of political incorrectness and "shoot-from-the-lip" observations. Never shy about engaging in controversy, she deftly navigates the social taboos, stereotypes, and cultural differences that even the boldest of today's comedians would rarely broach.

God awful...
31 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ms. Lampanelli sadly mistakes abusing her audience for comedy. There is certainly nothing wrong with giving the crowd a hard time; indeed, Bill Hicks, Richard Pryor, Don Rickles and a wide variety of more talented comics were adept at it, but were always willing to take a shot at themselves to sort of 'even the score,' or at least made the audience feel like there was a point to the abuse. Lampanelli never finds this delicate balance. She comes off as hostile and entitled, accosting people who paid good money to see her and who seem to love her rancor. Guess you have to be there...

But, perhaps sadder than the weak shock value of rampant racism and the puerile attempts at "laugh at the stereotype" jokes (which Sarah Silverman has shown CAN be funny) is the absolute lack of humor in the show. Long Live the Queen is not shocking, not original, and, most importantly, really, really not funny at all. I debated whether this was because of some lack of sense of humor on my part, but honestly, after giving it some thought, I don't think that's the case. However, I freely admit I don't 'get' the Howard Stern freak show, so, maybe there's something there I'm missing...Stern's a talented guy, but I'm always a little lost with the whole fame-by-proxy that some of his frequent guests seem to enjoy...but I digress...

In the end, Lampanelli is perhaps just better as a target than a weapon (Greg Geraldo and Nick DiPaolo have eviscerated her on a number of celebrity roasts), and I wouldn't anticipate a second HBO special for her.

Disappointing. There are so few female comics making noise worth listening to these days, and between that big chested aberration who won Last Comic Standing last year, and Lampanelli's "opus", it doesn't look like Kathy Griffin is going to have trouble finding work for a while. Understand, I don't object at all to comics testing the boundaries of appropriateness. That's fine. I love Lenny Bruce, George Carlin, Richard Pryor, Andy Kauffman, Redd Foxx, etc. But controversy and a few swear words doesn't automatically equal funny and this special was a sad example of this concept.
