Another year, another celebrity painfully skewered by jokes at Comedy Central‘s annual roast!
Only it wasn’t the roastee who received the bulk of the heat at this year’s Roast of Rob Lowe!
On Monday night, the Parks and Recreation alum subjected himself to the comedic barbs from the likes of David Spade, Saturday Night Live‘s Pete Davidson, Peyton Manning, Jewel, and roast veteran Jeff Ross.
The actor certainly got roasted throughout the night, mostly for the 1988 sex tape he made with a 16-year-old girl — like when roastmaster Spade quipped:
“Rob starred in Austin Powers two 16 years ago. Can you believe that? 16? Or as Rob calls it, ├óΓé¼╦£18’… Rob has been called a comeback kid… sorry I read that wrong, he came on a kid’s back.”
While the 52-year-old took plenty of jabs — Davidson claimed doctors described him as “Gonorrhea patient zero” — it was one of Lowe’s roasters Ann Coulter who took most of the abuse during the special.
“Ann Coulter describes herself as a polemicist. Most people call her a c***├óΓé¼┬ª Last year had Martha Stewart who sells sheets. Now we have Ann Coulter who cuts eye-holes in them.”
Even Manning got in on the fun, musing he was “not the only athlete” on the dais as “Ann Coulter won the Kentucky derby.”
Comedian Nikki Glaser got her fair share of burns in on the conservative commentator, quipping:
“She’s written 11 books; 12 if you count Mein Kampf. I’d ask what it’s like to sleep at night but I imagine it’s upside down in a 101 Dalmatian robe├óΓé¼┬ª The only person you will ever make happy is the Mexican who digs your grave.”
Even Jewel got in a few sharp digs on the political pundit, jabbing:
“As a feminist I don’t agree with everything being said up here, but as someone who hates Ann Coulter I’m delighted├óΓé¼┬ª Ann you do look great though, you’re almost as thin as Donald Trump‘s chance at winning the election.”
After taking the podium to boos from the audience, Coulter commented on the night with her funniest line, before her set went completely downhill. She jested:
“Welcome to the Ann Coulter Roast with Rob Lowe.”
Womp womp! We mean, did she really not see that coming!?
Even Lowe himself acknowledged Coulter’s presence was a bit random during his rebuttal. After thanking all the roasters for participating and trying to get under his “flawless skin,” the actor said:
“A lot of people have asked why Ann Coulter is here. Because the right-to-lifers wanted everyone to see what an abortion looks like up close├óΓé¼┬ª Ann, after your set tonight, we’ve all witnessed the first bombing that you can’t blame on a Muslim.”
