The Comedy Central Roast of Roseanne doesn't air until next weekend, but luckily for us, we don't have to wait until then to hear about all of its LAUGHS OR surprise guests!
That's right, according to sources who were at last night's taping, which was hosted by Jane Lynch, the comedienne's estranged ex Tom Arnold showed up for the events…despite claiming earlier in the summer that he would not be there!
Ch-ch-check out some HIGHlights from the evening (below)!
"She's one of those rare celebrities so famous that she's referred to by just one name—bitch. I waved to you outside but then I realized it was just one of those inflatable parking lot gorillas."
"I've got to give it to you, you've been tortured and abused all night and you're still hanging in there. Roseanne, I'm not talking to you, I'm talking to the chair you're sitting on. I'd only roast a pig if it had an apple in its mouth."
"Instead of running for president, why don't you try walking on a treadmill. I'd vote for you but I'm against big government. That's just what we need, a round president in an oval office."
"I'm not here to tear Roseanne a new one, because I've seen the old one."
"In 1985, Roseanne went on Johnny Carson, which is every comic's dream back then. She killed, he laughed his ass off, he gave her a thumbs up and he invited her to sit on his couch. She got validation from the king which can never be taken away from her."
"And I just want to say, Rosanne, you were my Johnny Carson. And thank you for the thumbs up and thank you for inviting me to sit on your couch for a little bit."
AWWWW! That is so SWEET to hear!
Especially as sources close to them claim that they don't really see or speak to each other much anymore!
But all in all, it sounds like a pretty AWESOME night with a lot of laughs, and now, we're just all the more excited to see it in full!
How about U? Will U be checking out the Rosanne Roast?!
