You can generally count on a few things to happen at a Comedy Central roast. Jeffrey Ross will be there. Whitney Cummings will be there. Lisa Lampenelli will be there making jokes about black men’s penises. Snoop Dogg or Flava Flav will probably be there to add a little diversity to the proceedings.
So that’s why it was a little refreshing that the best performer from last night’s Comedy Central roast of Charlie Sheen was the actress Kate Walsh, of “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Private Practice” fame. Walsh isn’t known as a comedienne, but she got away with the meanest joke of the night:
“The only reason you got on TV in the first place is because God hates Michael J. Fox.” –Anthony Jeselnik
“You’re just like Bruce Willis. You were big in the 80s and now your old slot is being filled by Ashton Kutcher.” –Amy Schumer
“Charlie still hasn’t hit rock bottom. He’s looking forward to it though, because he thinks there’s a rock there.” –Steve-O
