NEW YORK, June 29, 2005 -- COMEDY CENTRAL is getting in to bed with Pamela Anderson and it?s certain to be one hot and sexy evening! Anderson is locked and loaded to be the all-comedy network?s newest, and first woman, Roastee. Jimmy Kimmel, host of ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," will serve as Roast Master, ensuring the event will be one arousing Roast. The show is scheduled to tape on August 7 in Los Angeles. "The COMEDY CENTRAL Roast of Pamela Anderson" will air on Sunday, August 14 at 10:00 p.m. "We are elated that Pamela Anderson will be the first woman to christen our Roastee throne,? said Elizabeth Porter, vice president, talent and events for COMEDY CENTRAL. "ur viewers can expect this year'sRoast to be filled with some sizzling and biting material."
According to Kimmel, "This will be the filthiest night that even Pam has experienced in front of a video camera. I'm getting a special penis tattoo to commemorate it."
"I'm looking forward to being roasted...although I feel like I've made a career out of roasting, boiling or pickling myself," said Anderson, who is donating her fee to PETA and will be lampooned for her animal activism as well as her other obvious attributes.
This year's edition of the Roast will be produced by Joel Gallen from Tenth Planet Productions, who will also be executive producing and directing "COMEDY CENTRAL LIVE Presents Dave Attell: The Insomniac Tour" movie and "COMEDY CENTRAL's Last Laugh '05."
Tenth Planet Productions' Joel Gallen is the executive producer and Elizabeth Porter serves as the executive in charge of "The COMEDY CENTRAL Roast of Pamela Anderson" for the network.

Bump to keep abreast of this event.
Pam Anderson? I guess Jared, the Subway guy, was busy that evening.
someone has a crap fetish in the keywords....
Might have to have a LIVE THREAD of this event (well, as it occurs on TV, anyway)
That's great. PETA was running low on money to round up more stray pets and slaughter them.
"Notice Pam is "donating" her fee to PETA...She was on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' last week and said "they" were donating $200,000 to her favorite charity (PETA)..."they" appears to be Comedy Central for the chance to roast her...I hope it is worth it! (Sarcasm)"
PETA, who is PETA? Where's Pam? I thought we were talking about Pam? Why do I have stars in my eyes?
Those are some crappy keywords.
yeah they are...
they take this thread to the crapper.....
Seen the thread about the PETA racist mess in CT?
yes...that is why I posted this one...PETA will stop at nothing to get donations and support for their cause....they get so much money we aren't even aware of...shameful...but at least they don't hide the fact that they are whackos
"someone has a crap fetish in the keywords...."
At least he threw 'rubberbiscuit' in there.
Pam Anderson roasted.......?
I think she's been marinated, glazed, filet'd, and found to be well done. Albeit the breasts are kinda rubbery I'm told.......:o)
I saw my first Pam/Peta billboard in Chicopee, MA last weekend.
What a hypocrit, we all know she's a meat eater.
And you know someone is going to zing her on that. These roasts are outrageously funney. I have seem Heffner's, Jerry Stiller's, Chevy Chase's and Dennis Leary's so far.
You saw the video too.
"You know the book "The Perfect Storm"? I witnessed the perfect storm of craziness Sunday night: Courtney Love, Dennis Rodman, Tommy Lee, Andy Dick and Anna Nicole Smith, all within 35 feet of one another for Comedy Central's taping of the Pamela Anderson Celebrity Roast."
"As you might remember from my column about the Shaq Roast three years ago, few things make me happier than a celebrity roast -- it's the last place on the planet where anything can be said about anybody without any repercussions. Although they're always entertaining on TV, they're 10-20 times more entertaining in person because Comedy Central has to edit out some of the more biting/obscene/outlandish comments. (The fact that HBO or Showtime hasn't launched a Celebrity Roast Series remains one of the great mysteries in life.) In person, you hear everything -- hepatitis B jokes, domestic violence jokes, at least 125 different jokes about Tommy Lee's anatomy, even Jeff Ross telling Courtney Love, "God, what happened? Even Kurt Cobain looks better than you!"
"It was a vicious night from start to finish, kicked off by emcee Jimmy Kimmel announcing the names of Dick, Love, Rodman and Lee, then telling an inappropriate joke. Of course, Courtney ended up stealing the show, for better or worse -- interrupting comedians during their monologues, throwing shoes at people, spilling drinks, stumbling around, mauling Kimmel on the sofa, screaming "Clean and sober for 12 months" after every drug joke about her, crossing/uncrossing her legs like Sharon Stone in "Basic Instinct" for the people in the first few rows, pulling up her blouse for the crowd ... I mean, I can't adequately capture what happened. At one point, Tommy Lee was pouring himself champagne from Rodman's table, they looked at each other and both kind of shrugged. Imagine being so crazy that Dennis Rodman and Tommy Lee had to share a "Wow, she's nuts!'" moment about you?"
One drawback about roasts: There are always 2-3 people who bomb, and at least 2-3 more people who end up going on waaaaaaaaaaaaay too long. For instance, an unprepared Eddie Griffin (the comedian/actor, not the basketball player) babbled incoherently for about 20 minutes, to the point the teleprompter was flashing in capital letters, "PLEASE WRAP IT UP!" (That was funny in itself -- when they edit the show, they should just show the teleprompter over his actual routine.) There was also a transvestite performer (dubbed "Pamela Manderson" by Ross) who bombed so badly that Jimmy immediately followed her routine with, "Don't worry, that's all going to be edited out of the show."
Gee, I can't wait.
