Comedy Central, in its own words, “just got a whole lot better lookin’.” The network has announced today that Rob Lowe, star of many things, but most recently the criminally underappreciated FOX comedy The Grinder, will be this year’s honored Roastee.
The Comedy Central Roast of Rob Lowe will take place and tape in Los Angeles this summer, though its exact tape and airdates still have yet to be announced. “Rob Lowe is handsome, talented, successful and handsome. He needs to be roasted,” said Comedy Central President Kent Alterman, very accurately. The man himself had this to say:
What a thrill to once again be following in Justin Bieber’s footsteps. I look forward to a night of hilarious jokes recycled from the James Franco Roast. I would like to express my gratitude to the members of my family who have passed away and therefore will not have to endure what promises to be a very special evening.
No word yet on who will be doing the roasting, but let’s hope some of Lowe’s former Parks and Recreation cast members show up to exact their revenge for this.
