Pretty damn good
13 September 2009 | by dougfmSee 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.
