Remember when "Celebrity Roast" meant Dean Martin sipping a cocktail while Don Rickles made mafia jokes about Frank Sinatra? Well, now it means Lisa Lampanelli making cringe-inducing jokes about Chris Brown beating Rihanna in the name of saluting Larry the Cable Guy.
Yes, Larry the Cable Guy. The man who earns millions making Southerners look like backward morons is being honored tonight by Comedy Central. (And if you're questioning the Roast-worthiness of Larry, consider that Larry stars in an upcoming animated series on Comedy Central.)
These Comedy Central Roasts are brutal. They're vulgar, mean, politically incorrect -- and sometimes pretty funny.
So if you want to spend an hour or so tonight laughing at jokes you know you probably shouldn't be laughing at, tune in at 10pm. And don't worry -- there will be enough belittling redneck jokes to choke that drunken pet hog you keep there in the dining room. But that's okay, Larry brought it on himself (and on the rest of us).
If you miss it tonight, they'll rerun it for weeks. But make no mistake - this isn't family viewing. When they say "viewer discretion is advised," they mean it.
