If the point of a roast is to bash the ones you love, then Roseanne Barr must be the most popular person on the planet!
Last night, Comedy Central delivered their annual all-around punch in the face known as their roasts, and this year they skewered the pioneer female comedian whose groundbreaking sitcom Roseanne ran from 1988-1997. Friends, former Roseanne co-stars and big-name comics and actors including Seth Green, Jeffrey Ross, Katey Sagal, Wayne Brady and roastmaster Jane Lynch were on hand to provide plenty of fat jokes and jabs at Roseanne's lack of career success since her sitcom went off the air.
Between her unfortunate attempt at running for President under the Green Party, her terrible reality shows throughout the last decade and tempestuous marriage to ex-husband Tom Arnold (this was the first time they had been in the same room in over 18 years!), there was plenty of ammunition to go around. Check out the best digs of the night towards Roseanne and everyone else on the dais below!
Jeff Ross: You know, usually when I roast a pig it has an apple in its mouth. (Jeff then handed Roseanne a Granny Smith, which she promptly threw at him).
Anthony Jeselnik: You're a feminist icon, but look at all the men who made money of you. (Ex-husband) Tom Arnold. (Roseanne co-star) John Goodman. The guy who owns the Cheesecake Factory.
Katey Sagal: Roseanne was a trailblazing comedy icon who created the character of an irreverent, smart-talking mom that no one had ever seen...since I did it on Married...With Children the year before.
Gilbert Gottfried: A drunken farmer stumbled upstairs into his bedroom, where his wife Roseanne is. She sees her husband holding a sheep under his arms. The farmer yells, "This is the pig I've been f******!" Roseanne says, "You idiot, that's not a pig. It's a sheep!" The farmer says, "Shut the f*** up. I was talking to the sheep!"
Jane Lynch: I haven't seen so many spoiled hens in one place since I went to Chick-fil-A. Which reminds me: F*** Chick-fil-A!
Tom Arnold: (Roseanne) actually had ‘Property of Tom Arnold’ tattooed on her hip, which made me the fourth largest property owner in California.
Amy Schumer: Roseanne, I was surprised you were running for president. I just think a lot of people just couldn’t picture you, like, running.
Roseanne Barr: Tom (Arnold), thanks for showing up tonight. But Jesus Christ, how many f****** jobs do I have to keep getting you?!
