Quotes

Whitney Cummings: Robin's fucked so many white guys, Abecrombie and Fitch took out ad space on her taint. Robin's vagina is like the first five minutes of a movie: It's never been seen by a black guy. Robin Quivers has slept with so many white guys, her hymen hasn't even broken yet. Robin's been hammered so hard, her vagina looks like Seal's face.

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.
