First Look: Gilbert Gottfried Takes It

The roast of David Hasselhoff seemed like one of those things that had no chance of living up to the hype, yet somehow it did. And maybe even exceed expectations.

That is saying something considering that this was an edited version of the show and the unleashed version will not come out for a couple of weeks or so.

The highlight of the night, at least for me, was Gilbert Gottfried who won the night. Nearly all of the performers were great -- though I wanted a little bit more out of Jeffery Ross -- but Gottfried nailed it.

There was one of the comics who did the, "Hey (Roast Master) Seth MacFarlane, South Park called, they want their everything back." Which was nice. But Gottfried really nailed when he said to give MacFarlane a break, because the Simpsons have not done a roast yet.

And then Gottfried made fun of the Holocaust and was the leader in the clubhouse.

Whitney Cummings would probably get the second spot for asking Pam Anderson to drink a gallon of Magic Johnson's blood and saying that the same went for Brooke Hogan, too. Wonderful.

Greg Giraldo was good, but Lisa Lampenelli might have taken the bronze for starting the show so hot.

I missed it. I'll have to catch the unedited version when it comes on.

Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. What about the BIG story, Cowboy Honk? You know what I'm talking about: "Bark at the Park" at Dodger Stadium! DodgerFan gets to bring their dog to the all-you-can-eat section in right field! Normally, I think of bring your dog to the yard events as simply management flipping the bird to every health code going back to the Book of Leviticus, but this is DodgerFan we're talking about! Vegas has the under/over on morbidly obese kids mauled by pit bulls at 14!

I would love to watch it but I didn't have the change and it is quite hard to find it on the Net.
