There is not a BBQ pit large enough to contain the drippings when Comedy Central Roasts David Hasselfhoff. This very entertaining show airs Saturday August 28th 2010 at 10 on The Comedy Network. It will also be repeated Sunday September 6th as the closing show of the Premium Stand-up Labour Day Marathon. Fair warning: Hasselhoff sings at the beginning of the show.
The Roast of David Hasselhoff features the usual suspect suspects like Greg Giraldo, Jeffrey Ross, Gilbert Gottfried, and Lisa Lampanelli. It also stars Pamela Anderson, George Hamilton, Jerry Springer and Hulk Hogan.
Seth MacFarlane of Family Guy and American Dad fame is the MC and a very good one.
Hasselhoff is best known for Knight Rider and Baywatch. Others may know Hasselhoff as the question mark on America's Got Talent?
First up is Lisa Lampanelli, the only thing on the show fatter than Hasselhoff s head. Lampanelli is especially vicious. George Hamilton is a waste of time.
Jeffrey Ross, in a Speedo no less, has quite a few good zingers. Hulk Hogan does okay.
Pamela Anderson keeps viewers Abreast and Dbreast with the latest bad Hasselhoff jokes. Gilbert Gottfried really kills with nastiest jokes of the evening aside from Hasselhoff himself.
Jerry Springer, Whitney Cummings, and Greg Giraldo are like the last three seasons of Baywatch: awful.
The Roast of David Hasselhoff closes with Hasselhoff showing he is as good a comic as he is an actor.
