I'm Hooked On A Feelin' That The Hoff Is Going To Get Fried

Since the early 20th century, the Friars Club roasts have been the thread from which comedy legend is spun.

After airing the Friars Club roasts for a few years in the late '90s, Comedy Central snatched up the biting baton and began its own series, nipping away at Denis Leary's acerbic ass during the first Comedy Central Roast in 2003. Since then, a whole host of celebrities—not necessarily comedians but certainly comedic (or, more accurately, parodiable)—have been cut to withering ribbons by a panel of their peers, friends and fellow celebs. The series has proved popular, the episodes in which William Shatner, Flavor Flav and Joan Rivers garnering huge ratings.

Looks like David Hasselhoff is the next star to go up on the spit. The roast of David Hasselhoff is scheduled to air Sunday, Aug. 15 and Family Guy's Seth MacFarlane has been tapped as Roast Master. Pamela Anderson, George Hamilton, Hulk Hogan, Lisa Lampanelli, Jeffrey Ross and Jerry Springer have been pegged as but a few of the roasters.

Let's hope the roasters aren't so cruel that they leave the Hoff an empty, angry, cheeseburger-eating shell. The Germans would hate that.
