Murder. Sacrilege. Filthy descriptions of sex acts. Get ready for the Roast of Rob Lowe with a look back at some of the most brilliant (and painful) burns of Roasts past.
AMY SCHUMER AT THE ROAST OF CHARLIE SHEEN
We can’t talk about savage Roast performances without talking about Amy Schumer’s evisceration of Charlie Sheen in 2011. Before Inside Amy Schumer and its strong stances took the world by storm, Amy’s “your daughters” punch line sent a clear message: Don’t screw with this woman.
AZIZ ANSARI AT THE ROAST OF JAMES FRANCO
Aziz went on offense early, tackling his fellow roasters’ outdated Indian jokes and questioning what they think makes people gay. But mostly he came to s**t on Jeff Ross.
NATASHA LEGGERO AT THE ROAST OF JUSTIN BIEBER
Natasha set the low bar high at the Roast of Bieber. Don’t be embarrassed if you cringe; actually, you should be worried if you don’t.
ANDY SAMBERG AT THE ROAST OF JAMES FRANCO
While most roasters go for the jugular, Andy decided to zag the other way and deliver a series of ingeniously lame put-downs to the dais — and to God. It makes sense when you watch it; trust us.
SARAH SILVERMAN AT THE ROAST OF JAMES FRANCO
If you’ve never seen Sarah explain, in excruciating detail, why Natasha Leggero is like a Chihuahua, it’s time to fix that. Now.
JEFF ROSS AT THE ROAST OF CHARLIE SHEEN
Really, any Jeff Ross highlight would suffice here. He’s killed at so many Roasts. But his brutal takedown of Charlie Sheen is a standout, if only because it’s got the Roastmaster General wearing an actual general’s uniform. Jeff Ross, we salute you.
