The Comedy Central Roast of Rob Lowe was announced this week and today Comedy Central released the lineup of comedians, friends and celebrities who will be taking the movie and television star to task. So far, the confirmed dais includes Jimmy Carr, Pete Davidson, Lowe’s Tommy Boy co-star Bo Derek, Rob Riggle, Jeff Ross, and Peyton Manning, with additional participants to be announced later. David Spade has been confirmed as the Roast Master.
We’re excited to see what Manning has to offer (if Shaq has taught us anything, it’s that we shouldn’t doubt the comedy chops of athletes), and pretty nervous about Davidson, who was completely relentless with Justin Bieber.
But subject Rob Lowe seems to have a good sense of humor about it. He told Entertainment Tonight, “I love those roasts. They make me laugh. Look, maybe there’s something wrong with me, but the meaner they are, the more I like it, and the people who can take it, are my heroes.” In other words, bring it.
