Roast of Joan Rivers

I do love those Comedy Central Roasts.  They are so funny and dirty.  I remember watching them in the 70’s and I don’t remember them cussing but they were dirty.

The panel or they call it Dais were so so.  I think it was about 50/50.  One of the people on there I’ve never heard of, Whitney Cummings.  Who the hell is she?  I appreciate a good gay joke but come on, this ho bag made a crack about Mario Cantone having AIDS and about him being a child molester.  Sorry but it’s not funny.  And they kept making these fried chicken and watermelon jokes about Robin Quivers.  Also not funny.

They filmed this in July 2009 which was around the time that 4 stars passed away, one of them being David Caradine.  I think there were about 3 jokes about him which I think was too soon for that.  Yes it was funny but still too soon.

Also TV Guide said that Lily Tomlin was going to be in it but she wasn’t.  That was disappointing because I love her and I would’ve loved to see her make fun of the panel.

I think the best moment in this show was the beginning when Joan came out onto the stage with 6 children with price tags on them and she said that Brad and Angelina were having a garage sale lol.

The only 2 comedians that I liked on there were Kathy Griffin and Jeffrey Ross.  Besides the terrible fried chicken joke to Robin he was pretty good.  He was probably the best one out of them all of course besides Kathy Griffin and of course besides Joan Rivers at the very end.  She did pretty good too.
