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.

More gently funny than the other roasts, and not as vulgar (to its credit)
16 September 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

James Franco is interesting, in an oddball sort of way, but not necessarily the first person I'd think of to roast. He's certainly done a lot, but the usual honorees have the bulk of their career behind them. Not this guy, which kind of makes it a little more interesting. I thought that the featured roasters were all well-picked, even if not all of them were funny. Basically, the dais was filled with a bunch of his friends, which made it more intimate. I also liked that they didn't go so heavy on the vulgarity, making the subjects a little more diverse than usual. Still...So. Many. Jew. Jokes (Bill Hader's turn as an old Jew in a tracksuit was probably the best instance of this). My personal favorites were Sarah Silverman and Jeff Ross, who have done well in other roasts. Jonah Hill and Andy Samberg were bombs in my opinion. Jonah Hill seemed like he was trying too hard (or couldn't keep his game face on), and Andy Samberg's ironic performance just wasn't funny to me. James Franco's rebuttal wasn't necessarily the best or the worst I've seen, but it was alright. Taken in context of Comedy Central's other roasts, this is certainly one of the more creative ones, even if the end result is rather tame.
