In just a few hours, Comedy Central will air the Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen, coincidentally on the same night that America’s favorite insane celebrity’s former show, “Two and a Half Men,” will air with his replacement, Ashton Kutcher. You can bet your tiger-blooded butts that there will be plenty of jokes about that, as well as Sheen’s history of cocaine use, relationships with porn stars, and presumably the time he shot Kelly Preston, because that’s still kind of funny.
Of course, there’s also a good possibility that you may have already read about tonight’s jokes, since the roast actually took place last week, but reading comedy spoilers is stupid, because who wants a joke spoiled? So I’m not going to ruin any of tonight’s jokes for you, if you’re like me and actually appreciate the roasts for the hilarious comedians that are invited (despite, you know, never having met the roastee) and the unintentional hilarity of the celebrity guests who bomb (looking at you, Mike Sorrentino).
Instead, I thought we could look back at the best jokes from some of Comedy Central’s past roasts, including Denis Leary, Donald Trump, Joan Rivers, Jeff Foxworthy, Larry the Cable Guy, and Pam Anderson, among others. I’m sure that I’ve left out some hilarious jokes, so feel free to add your own favorites in the comments and I’ll meet you back here tomorrow to talk about the best from Sheen’s roast. Deal? Deal.
