Comedy Central is pairing up two of America’s fiercest comedians for the upcoming roast of Roseanne. The network announced today that award-winning comedian and actress Jane Lynch will be the Roast Master to lead the slaughter in August.
“I’ve long fantasized of ripping Roseanne Barr a new one. But because I don’t have the cajones to say anything offensive to her face, I will be hosting the proceedings,” said Lynch. The event will tape in Los Angeles on Saturday, Aug. 4 and will premiere on Comedy Central on Sunday, Aug. 12 at 10 pm EST.
There’s been no word on who will be roasting the iconic comedian as of yet, but we do know that Tom Arnold will not be one of them.
