Rob Lowe Roast: 25 of the Most Shocking Jokes (Not All Were Aimed at Ann Coulter)
A roundup of the most scathing digs from the Comedy Central special.
The Comedy Central Roast of Rob Lowe aired Monday night, with many of the previously reported digs — at both roastee Rob Lowe and roaster Ann Coulter's expenses — making it to air.
The special, which was taped on Aug. 27 in Los Angeles, gathered a slew of celebrities to rip Lowe on subjects including his acting career, perfectly good looks, and infamous past liaisons and sex tape — while his family, wife Sheryl Berkoff and sons Matthew, 22, and John Owen, 20, sat in the audience.
It was Coulter, however, who found herself on the receiving end of the night's most scathing jabs. The conservative political commentator was frequently panned to throughout the roast, showing viewers just how unamused she was by her fellow roasters.
Roasters included Jimmy Carr, Coulter, Pete Davidson, Nikki Glaser, Jewel, Ralph Macchio, Peyton Manning, Rob Riggle and Jeff Ross, with David Spade serving as Roast Master.
Below, a roundup of some of the most shocking jokes of the night, in the order they were delivered.
