60 minutes

Originally aired in 2005, the Comedy Central Roast of Jeff Foxworthy is still funny 3 years later. Most references are still alive and well, unlike guest Anna Nicole Smith. You will have a hard time figuring out some of the Colin Quinn / Nick Di Paolo Tough Guy cancelled sitcom references. This roast features all of the Blue Collar Comedy crew.

A little annoying in the Roast of Jeff Foxworthy is the many references to Foxworthy’s cancelled sitcom. The jokes are as old as the show itself, 1997.

Irony is hearing Delta Farce (“Puts the VD in DVD” –our review) stars Bill Engvall and Larry the Cable Guy slam Foxworthy’s acting talents.

One of the funniest bits is the talking cow. No, not Lisa Lampanelli; the voice work by Gilbert Gottfried. Lampanelli is funny too.

This is one of the mildest and less wicked Comedy Central Roasts in history. Perhaps it is because Foxworthy is such a clean comic or because Foxworthy is such a stand-up comedy heavyweight nobody wants to really piss him off by accident.

Most of the venom in this roast is directed towards the other Blue Collar Comedy comics or the people and other rednecks that go to their shows. The only one who doesn’t really pull punches, relatively speaking, is comic Greg Giraldo, and that’s probably the only thing Geraldo hasn’t pulled.

The best bit on this Roast is Steve Bridges as George Bush Jr. His 2005 Bush looks as tired as the real one does now.

The worst is Bama doing a rap version of Sweet Home Alabama. Bama is sooooo bad    How bad is it? ... a white guy made the crew. Foxworthy’s stunned look here is not because he realized his sister was also his daughter.

Jeff Foxworthy tries to get the last laugh. He gets as much reaction as a glass of water gets from Ron White.

All in all, this show is pretty funny.

If you enjoy The Comedy Central Roast of Jeff Foxworthy and are watching it on  The Comedy Network December 25th 2008 at 3 P.M. You might be a hoser.
