Billionaire Donald Trump is roasted on Comedy Central by Jeffrey Ross, Seth MacFarlane, Gilbert Gottfried, Whitney Cummings, Snoop Dogg, Larry King, Marlee Matlin, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, Lisa Lampanelli and Anthony Jeselnic.
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.

This is not the most watched roast of all time, it did not break any records- that is very incorrect. The most watched roast was 4 years before this one: Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen (2011), with 6.4 million viewers. See more »

Come on, let's hear it for Shaq, right? Thanks for being here and taking a break from throwing barrels at Super Mario. Please don't eat me.

The best thing the Biebz has ever done (aside from Selena Gomez)
As I've mentioned before, I've already seen a bunch of these Comedy Central roasts, but this is one I saw tonight for the first time. I laughed until I physically hurt and cried. Unlike the two most recent ones I watched (Donald Trump and Rob Lowe), everyone brought their A-game, even if they weren't all at the same level. Singling out two, Natasha Leggero (who I hadn't heard of before this) and Shaq were the surprises to me. Natasha for how brutal she got, and Shaq for doing something I wasn't aware he could do effectively, i.e., deliver jokes (that were pretty funny as well). Most surprising inclusion was Martha Stewart, who also did well for a non-comedian. All in all, I liked that pretty much every dais member went for the jugular, even if they ended their mic time by saying how much they liked Bieber. I mean, they only roast the ones they love, right? Really the only downside was the last-minute decision (undoubtedly pre-planned) to turn this into a sort-of personality rehab. Whatever happened to insulting people for the heck of it? Nobody's perfect, after all. I don't want to see someone try to exorcize their demons publicly. Anyway, similar to what Hannibal Buress said, I don't like his music. Never have. However, this 90-minute-ish roast with a willing participant who enjoyed himself was time and money well-spent.
