You remember David Hasselhoff, right? Knight Rider lead, Baywatch lifeguard, late 80′s German popstar, occasionally drunken mess David Hasselhoff? Comedy Central announced that Hasselhoff will be their next roastee. Don’t worry, they already made the “Don’t hassle the Hoff” joke, so we won’t.
The special is set to be taped this summer in Los Angeles. Luckily, Hasselhoff is ready for whatever the roasters will throw down, saying, “Bring it on! I’m ready to take the heat!” He’s no stranger to self-parody, making us think this roast will be a fun one to watch.
Comedy Central’s past roastee hall of fame includes Joan Rivers, Bob Saget, and William Shatner. Hasselhoff’s roast special will air Sunday, Aug. 15 at 10 pm.
Bonus! In the video below, those silly geese at TMZ.com recently caught up with the Hoff to ask him about his ongoing alcohol addiction (in front of his daughter)! Fun!
