Instead of dressing up as Penn State’s Jerry Sandusky at the Comedy Central roast of Roseanne Barr, he wore the glasses of Joe Paterno.
The veteran insult comedian who was recently named the host of a half-hour show called The Burn with Jeff Ross, has stepped it up. He wore nothing but a leather jacket and revealing black underwear to 2010’s David Hasselhoff roast.
On this year’s getup, he cleverly told the Hollywood Reporter, “If they’re offended by what they see, they can do what Joe Paterno did – look the other way.”
He also joined the likes of Dane Cook when he commented on the shooting in Aurora. Here’s a joke (that was cut from the televised version) that he made to Seth Green:
“Seth, congratulations. This is actually a great night for you … you haven’t gotten this much attention since you shot all those people in Aurora. … I’m kidding. You are not like James Holmes. At least he did something in a movie theater that people remember!”
The John Goodman, nut, lesbian daughter, and fat jokes begin on August 12 at 10/9 central.
