Another Funny Roast from Comedy Central
12 August 2012 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Comedy Central Roast of Roseanne (2012)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Ellen Barkin, Katey Sagal, Anthony Jeselnik, Amy Schumer, Carrie Fisher, Seth Green, Wayne Brady, Gilbert Gottfried and Jeffrey Ross are on hand with host Jane Lynch as they roast the one and only Roseanne. I've read a lot of reviews over the past few years stating that Comedy Central has ruined the entire roasting but I must be missing something because I think they've all been pretty funny. Now, this one here is certainly lacking the last couple guests but I think there are still some hilarious moments going on here and Roseanne seems to be having a blast with the material. I'm not sure what's up with Fisher as she seems rather offended by some of the jokes, mad about them or perhaps that's just the way she typically looks but it seems like you'd know what you were getting into. Her comedy routine was a tad bit uneven but for a non-comedian I thought she did a pretty good job. Barkin gets a lot of jokes thrown her way but she too seems to be having a blast and her routine was also pretty strong. Sagal was extremely effective with her bit and for the most part Lynch did a good job hosting. As with previous roasts, the best laughs come from the professionals with Jeselnik and Schumer really doing an outstanding job but it should come as no shock that it's Ross who really steals the show. Yes, there's even Penn State jokes. The surprise guest turned out to be Tom Arnold who delivers a pretty funny bit and even a little touching moment. Fans of Roseanne should enjoy the comedy here and if you're a fan of previous roasts then there's really no reason not to have fun here.
