Codenamechaz: Over everything she's said and done over the last decade, they go with fat jokes? Disappointing


Lowest common denominator. Comedy Central Roasts are basically a real-life "Ow! My Balls" from Idiocracy. If you watch clips on YouTube of the old Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts, they were done right. Lots of biting commentary, all in good fun, but a lot better than "LULZ Y U SO FAT?! LOLOLOLOLOL"

Tom Arnold had all the best zings. Everything else was "Oh, she's fat"

FormlessOne: Remember when roasts were a rare, time-honored tradition, meant to celebrate the lifetime achievements of great comedians?

Y'know, before Comedy Central stole the idea in 2002 from the Friar's Friars' Club, after televising the Friar's Friars' Club roasts for four years, and then turned that tradition into a declining, decade-long sideshow?


FTFM. Bad habit.

jimmyego: That roast seemed rather lacking in material, 90% of the jokes were just fat jokes. Don't they have writers? There's tonnes more stuff you could roast her for than her weight.


THIS

I look forward to the roasts every year. Yeah, they're all racial and gay jokes but that's what they always were, even in the Friar days. But they were done with style and ultimately, love. But this one really sucked. Maybe because all the good roasters are either recently dead or didn't show up. There's only so many jokes about chaining Carrie Fisher to Roseanne you can make before it becomes a little hacky.

Orgasmatron138: I miss when this was actually done by the Friar's Club.


And it was better when all the material didn't have to be submitted before hand for approval by the producers.

/the roast of Drew Carey was one of the best

The best joke was the one that wasn't aired....(CC being too afraid)

Jeff Ross turns to Seth Green :

"Seth, you haven't gotten this much attention since you shot all those people in Aurora,"
Then goes on to finish him with:
"You're actually not like James Holmes. He was doing things in a theater that people remember."

GOOD LORD that is brutally hilarious!!!
