Do you enjoy people of varying levels of fame saying rude things while touching on assorted taboos of today? If so, Comedy Central is here to filet actor Rob Lowe for your squirming pleasure this summer. Look! They’ve made an image for it and everything.
Crying and engulfed in flames, eh? Why would Lowe want to say no to that sort of night out? The Grinder refugee appears to be ready for the onslaught of insults coming his direction. No host, panel or premiere date has been revealed just yet, but let’s jump right to the pre-emptive swiping, shall we?
“What a thrill to once again be following in Justin Bieber’s footsteps,” Lowe said. “I look forward to a night of hilarious jokes recycled from the James Franco Roast. I would like to express my gratitude to the members of my family who have passed away and therefore will not have to endure what promises to be a very special evening.”
The recycled jokes line is a pretty good dig, but Lowe’s assorted scandals and Twitter dumbassery should provide roasters with a generous alley-oop for original and dusted off jokes about sex tapes, nannies, and Drew Peterson. Here’s how Chris Traeger might sum up the situation.
