A Toast To The Roasts

1. Denis Leary (2003) The roast master was Jeff Garlin. Leary is a stand up comedian and a film actor. He was roasted by several comedians including "The Queen of Mean" Lisa Lampanelli, Dr. Dre`, Michael J. Fox and Dane Cook. These comedians and several others snap on Denis Leary the entire roast from start to finish.

2. Jeff Foxworthy (2005) The roast master was Ron White and Larry The Cable Guy. This is the only time that a roaster had TWO Roast Masters. Unbelievably, former President George W. Bush roasted Jeff Foxworthy on a pre-recorded video. Jeff Foxworthy is most famously known for his "You might be a redneck if..." jokes. He held his own when it was time for him to fire back at the people who threw insults at him. Noteworthy celebrities that attended the roast were: Anna Nicole Smith, Heidi Klum, Greg Giraldo, Caolin Quinn, Larry The Cable Guy and Ron White..

3. William Shatner (2006) The roast master was Jason Alexander. They can joke on William Shatner all you want but, he has been in television for over forty years. He was T.J. Hooker, Captain Kirk, Priceline sponsor and many other things in his career. At his roast several comedians put down Shatner at every turn. The following is a short list of some of the best celebrities that were on the dias`. On the dias` was Andy Dick, Lisa Lampanelli, Jeff Ross and Betty White.

4. Pamela Anderson (2005) The roast master was Jimmy Kimmel. This roast is most memorable for Courtney Love falling all over the stage and making a fool of herself. The most memorable members of the dias` was Tommy Lee, Sarah Silverman, Bea Arthur, Jimmy Kimmel and the late Greg Gilado. Pamela's jokes were funny but, you could tell that they were pre-arranged and she's not a natural comedian .

5. Flavor Flav (2007) The roast master was Katt Williams. Kat Williams along with Seth McFarland are the most ruthless roast masters of the Comedy Central Roast. The best roasters on this stage were, Snoop Dogg, Ice-T, Ron Jeremy and Chyna. This roast is most memorable because the girls from the TV Reality Show Flavor of Love were in the audience and they were a sitting duck all night for the jokes of the roasters.

6. Bob Saget (2008) The roast master was John Stamos. If you thought Bob Saget should be able to hold his own in a put down battle after all of those years in television, you were right. Although Saget went tit for tat on everyone but, the most memorable moments were when the on stage celebs starting using rough jokes against the Olsen Twins (Full House) who were in attendance at the roast.

7. Willie Nelson: Postponed to a later date

8. Joan Rivers (2009) The roast master was Kathy Griffin. Joan Rivers took a heaping of insults all night long. Although she was ripped and made fun of all night long she still left smiling. The funniest dias` members of the night were Jeff Ross, Gilbert Gottfried, Tom Arnold and Whitney Cummings.

9. Larry the Cable Guy (2009) The roast master was Lisa Lampanelli. Larry The Cable Guy is good at one liners but, he is not good at dealing with constant raunchy insults being hurled his way. The cast that was in this roast consisted of Country Music star Toby Keith, crazy man, Gary Busey, football great Warren Sapp and comedians, Jeff Ross and Greg Giraldo.

10. Charlie Sheen (2011) The roast master was Seth MacFarlane. Seth MacFarlane, is probably the best roast master ever. He lets Charlie Sheen and the rest of the dias` have it from all angles. What a dias` it was with the likes of Mike Tyson, Anthony Jeselnik, Slash, Amy Schumer, Steve-O and Kate Walsh. The moment that stands out the most was Charlie Sheen's entrance to the dias` he was accompanied by Slash who played a guitar solo to his grand entrance.

11. Hugh Heffner (2001) The roast master was Allen King. This was the first Comedy Central Roast ever and it was originally known as The N.Y. Friars Club Roast. Hefner held his own in spots but, it was obvious he is not a comedian with his forced delivery of his jokes. A deep field of television stars ripped him a new one including, Drew Carey, Carson Daly, Tommy Davidson and Cedric The Entertainer.

12. Rosanne Barr (2012) The roast master was Jane Lynch. Rosanne got put down all evening by the stages other entertainers but, she seemed to take it all with a grain of salt. The comedic crew that tried to make her the laughingstock consisted of Seth Green, Jeffrey Ross, Wayne Brady, Tom Arnold and Anthony Jeselnik.

13. David Hasselhoff (2010) The roast master was Seth MacFarlane. Of course this roast is hilarious because of who the roaster master is. When the show first opens up Seth MacFarlane will sometimes roast for ten minutes at the beginning of a show. We all know that The Hoff from Night Rider and Bay Watch but, tonight you get to see him be an insult comic and a singer, all in the same night. Roasters for the evening included: Hulk Hogan, Pamela Anderson, Gilbert Godfried and Whitney Cummings. He is easy to pick on.

14. Donald Trump (2011) The roast master was Seth MacFarlane. It is my favorite roast master again. He has something for each person and he makes them suffer. The list of celebrities on the dias` include: Snoop Dogg, Larry King, The Situation (Mike Sorrentino) and Anthony Jeselnk.
