Comedy Central Names Its Final Roseanne Roasters; Gives One Roaster an Hour Special

Comedy Central has added to the list of  Roseanne roasters they released earlier this week. Are you ready? First, Gilbert Gottfried: OK, that checks out. Second, Ellen Barkin: Weird but probably a friend of Roseanne’s. And your final roaster is… Wayne Brady. [Noise of a record scratching to a stop] Umm, ok, so…ummm. Man, I hope he’s going to go with the whole playing against type angle and not singing a parody of the Roseanne theme song with silly lyrics. One person not likely to sing in a silly manner is Amy Schumer. Schumer has a reputation to uphold because less than a week after the roast airs, her first one-hour special is premiering. Amy Schumer: Mostly Sex Stuff debuts on Saturday, August 18 at 11:00pm and will focus on the election and the day’s most pressing political issu— just kidding, it’s about boning.
