Quotes

Gilbert Gottfried: Now it's great to see Robin Quivers. Anyone who has seen the Howard Stern show has heard Robin talk about being molested by her father. She won't shut up about it. She's very proud of it. But what Robin Quivers conveniently leaves out of her delightful anecdote is that even as a kid, she was so ugly that her father would close his eyes and fantasize about her sister, who was no looker herself, I may add.

Pretty damn good
13 September 2009 | by (Ottawa, Canada) – See all my reviews

Other than a few misses (Tom Arnold for one) I thought this was one of the better roasts. I'm not sure what standard you other guys are holding this up to. I'm guessing you thought the Flavor Flav roast was the funniest thing you've ever seen.

Greg Giraldo wasn't funny? Please, he was one of the better roasters and he had the intimidating task of going first. Carl Reiner was a bit weak but he's a comedy legend (not for standup) and most of the shows on TV now wouldn't be there if it weren't for him. Gilbert Gottfried was out there as usual and hilarious and Joan Rivers' rebuttal at the end was one of the best I've seen on Comedy Central.
