Pamela Anderson's Roast Honorarium Donated To PETA
NEW YORK, August 9, 2005 -- COMEDY CENTRAL gave it to Pamela Anderson like she never had it before. The event kicked-off with Anderson floating down from the rafters in an O-shaped chair while bubbles flowed through the air followed by rapid fire of quips, all at Anderson's expense. Tommy Lee proved once again that he is truly "larger than life" and the Roasters made sure to give it to him when it came to his manhood. Jimmy Kimmel, host of ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," served as Roast Master. The show taped on August 7 in Los Angeles at Sony Studios and will air as a 90-minute special. "The COMEDY CENTRAL Roast of Pamela Anderson" will debut on Sunday, August 14 at 10:00 p.m.
Encore presentations will air Sunday, August 14 at 11:30 p.m. and 1:00 a.m., Monday, August 15 at 9:30 p.m., Tuesday August 16 at 2:30 a.m. and Thursday, August 18 at 9:30 p.m. and midnight.
Highlights from the evening include: Bea Arthur reading sexually explicit excerpts from Anderson's new "novel"; Tommy Lee giving an arousing musical performance with Anderson dancing her heart out; Courtney Love acting like Tom Cruise on acid; Andy Dick French-kissing Jeffrey Ross and fondling Anderson's assets; and Lisa Lampanelli, the Queen of Mean, unleashing a verbal assault that fired-up the crowd to a standing ovation.
