"Although Roseanne Barr appears to be a demure, soft spoken woman eternally committed to the status quo, we believe under the surface is an explosive, trail-blazing cultural revolution. We are honored to Roast her," said Kent Alterman, Head of Original Programming and Production, Comedy Central.
"Celebrating Roseanne Barr's unprecedented achievements in comedy and television will surely inspire us to make this Roast more reminiscent of the classic roasts, where the intimacy of friends jousting with each other came through."
When asked about the Comedy Central Roast, Roseanne Barr remarked, "All I can say is good luck finding anything about me to make fun of... I mean, I've never made a mistake or offended anyone in my life!"
