According to the folks over at Comedy Central, Joan Rivers is “in for a rippin.'” Boy, is she ever.
With roasters like Brad Garrett, Carl Reiner, Gilbert Gottfried, Greg Giraldo, Jeffrey Ross, Lily Tomlin, Mario Cantone, Richard Belzer, Robin Quivers and Whitney Cummings, looks like comedy’s original diva will be needing more than a few tissues. (If her tear ducts are still capable of forming water, that is).
Festivities for Comedy Central’s Roast of Joan Rivers will premiere on Sunday, Aug. 9 at 10 pm EST.
