After you roast the likes of Flava Flav, Pamela Anderson, Larry the Cable Guy, David Hasselhoff, and Donald Trump, where can Comedy Central possibly go from there? How about taking on Detroit-based white rapper turned americana rock star turned balladeer Kid Rock?
That’s exactly what they have planned this August, as the people who brought us the First Annual Comedy Awards are planning on a celebrity roast to honor the rocker on hist 40th birthday.
NEW YORK, May 9, 2011 – COMEDY CENTRAL announced today that Kid Rock is set to join the likes of Donald Trump, David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson as COMEDY CENTRAL’s next Roastee. During Kid Rock’s illustrious career as a performer, there has yet to be a single audience that could prepare the five-time Grammy nominee for the vicious onslaught of sharp barbs that will be thrown his way when he takes center stage for the “COMEDY CENTRAL Roast Of Kid Rock.”
The event is currently scheduled to tape on August 14th and will air shortly thereafter. No announcements have been made as to which celebrity roasters will make an appearance, but you can expect the usual gang, and probably an appearance by current touring partner Sheryl Crow.
