As a frequent audience to Flavor Flav's reality show, Flavor of Love, I knew what to expect from his Comedy Central Roast. Due to Flav's obsolete hip-hop following, his Deus (roasting panel) consists of some gangsta rappers (Ice-T, Snoop Dogg) and the roast-regulars (Ross, Giraldo, Lampanelli). Unfortunately, the crowd demographic preferred to support an odd racial bias - most of the Jewish comics were heckled while performing, while the black entertainers barely showed comedic prowess. Fortunately, Katt Williams makes an excellent roastmaster and the writing staff made the grade.
Although typical roasts are structured to give the Roastee a final few minutes to retaliate on his Deus-members, it was disappointing to see Flav meander from the script to bomb horribly (in an effort to protect his on-and-off-again lover [Nielsen]).

Boring and uninspiring...great, another joke about the oversized timepiece or his love of the man chick from Rocky IV...

The roast was pretty funny; they hit on nearly everything, such as Flav's nine kids, that horrible show he has which shall remain nameless, to his relationship with Brigitte Nielsen and Chuck D. The part of the roast were Ice-T and Snoop Dogg, they were funnier than the professional comedians. Flav showed how to get through a roast without feeling ill will toward anyone, which was just stay drunk and/or high as possible. Still, compared to the other roasts, very good.

Flavor Flav! He's a dorky rap artist from the late 80's-early 90's, and for some reason, he wants a lover to find on a reality TV show. Does that sum up his career? The comedy cast that "roasts" Flav do their jobs perfectly. The funniest of them all is the Queen of Mean, Lisa Lampanelli. She came with some brutal jokes, but they are hilarous! Carrot Top was the only lame one, but that's not back for all the comedians not to stink except one. If you need a good laugh on account of someone else, then Roast Flav.

It was o.k. This wasn't a real roast. Especially not like any from the old days (Dean Martin). Everyone was doing 2 minute skits about everyone else in the room and not the honoree. A roast is supposed to have people making fun of a person the know, love or respect. Nobody knows or cares about Flav, and why should they. Seemed like everybody was doing if for face time.

I didn't like this roast very much. Probably because Flavor Flav should not have anything else on television. Really wasn't very funny because when they were making fun of Flavor Flav, it was all meant as jokes and it was also all sadly the truth.

Highlighted by Flav's Public Enemy bandmate Chuck D dropping him off at the roast and then speeding away as fast as he can. Later Patton Oswalt tells us that the "D" stands for dignity.
