Rob Lowe Is the Next Comedy Central Roastee

Comedy Central

His FOX sitcom The Grinder may be no more, but Rob Lowe has moved on to his next comedic role — taking abuse at the hands of roasters during Comedy Central’s annual favorite event, The Comedy Central Roast. Lowe’s skewering will be taped in Los Angeles this summer, with an airdate for the #LoweRoast to be announced later.

“Rob Lowe is handsome, talented, successful and handsome. He needs to be roasted,” said Kent Alterman, President, Comedy Central, in a release.

Lowe added: “What a thrill to once again be following in Justin Bieber’s footsteps. I look forward to a night of hilarious jokes recycled from the James Franco Roast. I would like to express my gratitude to the members of my family who have passed away and therefore will not have to endure what promises to be a very special evening.”
