Re: Rob Lowe Roast
« on: September 15, 2016, 03:15:12 pm »
I just watched the Rob Lowe Roast and it was like watching a train wreck. To be fair, I have the same feeling about all roasts' out there because those involved always go way over the line to the point of being mean and not funny. Now, this one in particular was an even bigger train wreck than normal and as Mac clearly pointed out, it starts and ends with Ann Coulter. She was not amused and was just biding her time so that she could hawk her book and I know that they purposely kept her second to last so that she had to stay on stage and take the abuse. Had she gone earlier in the show, she no doubt would have bailed. So, a smart move on the show runner to make sure she was stuck. As for her 'Roast' of everyone on stage....it was beyond awful. It was a lead balloon being held down by a two ton truck. You could hear a pin drop during her Roast. THAT was painful to watch and listen to.

Overall, the show was just okay for me. Ann wasn't the only one that bombed. Half the celebs on stage bombed as well. Surprisingly, Jewel turned out to be the funniest and on point with her barbs. One thing I gotta point out, when it comes to Roast in general, those getting burned on stage always offer up a fake smile or laugh to hide the fact they are trying to maintain composure but are hating what they are sitting through. To Rob's credit, he was genuinely enjoying it all. You can't fake it like that. He was having fun. Even Peyton Manning was having fun being made fun of. Worth checking out in spite of or in favor or Coulter.
