The new roasts are no good and should not even be on tv. To many curse words. It is a shame that we have to use bad words to get a laugh Dean Martin did not need to do that and his show was funny as can be.
gilbert godfrey should be in the comedy central roast. my fav one of his is on david hasslehoff's roast about pamela anderson's vagina. that was the only thing entertaining in that show because who even likes that little david hasslehoff prick? there's so many crackheads (not including charlie sheen) who are in this show like farah facet in william shatner's roast. she wasn't funny and she kept tripping over her words. they also need to get rid of that little nobody ross and that ugly bitch lampeneli. they've never been funny nor will they ever. they need to roast someone who's actually worth a damn. if they had actually funny people in charlie's roast, it'd be fantastic. the whole thing about ross dressing up like the cuban dictator made him look like a complete douche. so, in conclusion, they should take out most of the roasters and keep seth macfarlene as the host and gilbert godfrey as a special guest. thank you.
Sadly TV.com wants to white wash a 40 year tradition of good television by starting the Comedy Central Roast Series with Flavor Flav. Even some underfunded kindergarten dective work shows that the Celebrity Roast was on TV in the late 60's. But that may not be congruous with the current Comedy Central "series". Fine. But can we please at least include the notable greats that *have* been roasted on-air by comedy central? I speak of Denis Leary, Pamela Anderson, William Shatner, and Jeff Foxworthy. Would that be too much? I mean while we're at it...how about delving a *little* deeper and including the roasts done by the New York Friar's Club but aired by Comedy Central? These were even better and included; Drew Carey, Jerry Stiller, Rob Reiner, Hugh Hefner, and Chevey Chase. These were the originals and it's sad to see that TV.com hasn't included these when you look for "roast"...
For my review of the "whole" show? It was great and hilarious I laughed so hard my wife worried about me.
In my opinion, The roast of Pamela Anderson is the best of the whole comedy central roast series. Its outragous, unbleeped and completely uncensord. The roasters rip Pamela and each other apart all night long, its a true comic masterpiece. With Jimmy Kimmel hosting the show, and Jeffrey Ross, Lisa Lampanelii and Nick DiPaolo all roasting, this roast is a special one. The wild antics of Courtney Love is great material for the roasters, what the hell was she on that night? Andy Dick is on top form with his performance as the plastic surgon, the guy is hillarious. I strongly recomend this for anyone who has a soft spot for pure comedy magic.
I've only seen a couple but they were pretty much the same, jokes about sex, lot of language, etc. There were times I did laugh but really, the two I watched had the same types of jokes. Maybe that is too be expected. It is fun to rip into your friends though, so I can see why these are fun to watch for people. Overall there are times, while watching, I laughed, but there were times when I was wondering why others were laughing so hard (and yes, I did get the jokes). Overall my final grade would be in the "B" range. They're not all wildly hilarious but they are good for a chuckle or two
Over time these roasts have gone from sharp witted, honed humor to hard core filth which very few comedians could ever pull off. And even fewer of them can on this show. They need to stick with what they are good at and forget attempting shock talk. There is no second coming of Lenny Bruce, so how about just being an individual comedian with their own act. Leave the hard core to Lisa Lampanelli and get rid of Gottfried, he needs to stick to voiceing animations. Joan Rivers, what can I say. One great lady, Queen of stand up. awwwwwwww now needs to stick to selling jewelry cuz she can't sell ignorance for comedy anymore.
Anyway just my point of view, ty.
