It’s that time again. Comedy Central’s annual roasting of an A-list celebrity is here — well it will be here come Labor Day — and Rob Lowe has been chosen as this year’s metaphorical pig for slaughter. The former Brat Pack and West Wing actor has amassed some 30 odd years in the business, complete with sex tapes, nanny lawsuits and alarming amounts of drug use, so there’s plenty of ammo for the comedians who have been tapped to give him a good ribbing.
Among the professionals recruited to verbally abuse poor Lowe for our amusement are Roast Master David Spade, recurring roaster Jeff Ross, Jimmy Carr, Nikki Glaser and Rob Riggle. Of course, it wouldn’t be a true roast without a few non-comedians in the stand-up lineup. Peyton Manning, Jewel and everyone’s most-hated Donald Trump supporter, Ann Coulter, will also be on hand to hurl some insults at the actor — though we hear Coulter wasn’t spared any jabs either.
