O’ David Hasselhoff: Ye of hairy-chested, slow-motion beach-running; sloppy, drunken cheeseburger-eating; baffling lounge-singing seduction of the German nation; and limited acting talent. We hail thee.
Since his stints on Knight Rider, Baywatch and as a former judge on America’s Got Talent, the Hoff’s been fading ever further from the limelight. You know what that means? He’s a perfect candidate for Comedy Central’s next humiliating celebrity roast!
Today, it was announced that acerbic Family Guy creator, Seth MacFarlane, will be roast master and the event will feature roasters Pamela Anderson, Hulk Hogan and Jerry Springer - to name a few.
I hope Comedy Central secures more celebs to give the Hoff a proper rake over the coals. After all, David’s blessed our country and pop culture with a cornucopia of point-and-laugh fodder, so there should be no shortage of material for them to use! In yo’ face, Hoff Stuff!
The roasting of Mr. Hasselhoff will be filmed August 1st and aired on Comedy Central August 15th. Mark your calendars!
Past Comedy Central roastees have included William Shatner, Bob Saget, Chevy Chase and Pamela Anderson.
