Kathy Griffin, the MC, is not funny. I think her and Andy Dick might be the same person. Has anyone ever seen them together, in one place, at the same time? Hmmmmm...

I was initially skeptical about viewing the Joan Rivers' Roast, given how her recent fame revolves around red-carpet humour and superficial celebrity jokes. I was pleased to discover how well-ranged the comedy writing team were, especially as the grittier jokes continued into the program. Griffin makes an excellent (albeit slightly annoying) roastmaster, although I always appreciate the usual Deus regulars (Ross, Geraldo, Gottfried, Cantone). I wasn't surprised to discover Tom Arnold err thrice during his set, while Carl Reiner proved how unfunny an old man who curses for cheap laughs can truly be.
