Comedy Central Roast of David Hasselhoff
Review by Suzanne 1/26/11
If you haven't seen them before, let me warn you that the Comedy
Central roasts are very dirty, and they tend to pick cheesy people to tell the
jokes and to be roasted. Cheesiest of all is this DVD's roastee, David
Hasselhoff. I guess it's an honor to be roasted, but it seems like they are
picking on someone that, well, we all pick on...he's such an obvious target.
Not to say that it isn't funny. It's plenty funny. Seth McFarlane, who created,
writes and voices "Family Guy", is the host, and he is hilarious. So are most of
the comedians that roast Hasselhoff. They show lots of great clips of Hasselhoff,
too, if you are a fan of his.
It's just a shame they couldn't get some better comedians on the list of people
to roast Hasselhoff...you may not have heard of half the people listed, like
Whitney Cummings, Greg Giraldo, Lisa Lampanelli, or Jeffrey Ross. You probably
have heard of the rest, but they are not mostly comedians. They all do a fine
job, but it would have been nice to have heard some more famous people talk
about "The Hoff".
There are some good bonus features. A behind-the-scenes feature, some
interviews, Hasselhoff's reaction, and the wrap up of the show...not as many as
you'd like, but still, this is a very fun DVD collection and has quite a few
laughs. It did give me nightmares about Hasselhoff, though, so be warned!!!
