Kathy Griffin was the logical choice as toastmistress for the Comedy Central Roast of legendary comedian, Joan Rivers. Joan tells the Jacksonville Observer, “We both talk about people, so I guess that could be the comparison.”
The sassy broad reveals both in her interview and this promo video for the roast that she’s just as acid-tongued as she’s ever been. “Comedy is very rough now. Life is very rough. When the whole nation goes into mourning when a pedophile dies, you’re in a very strong time.”
Reminiscent of her abrupt departure from Celebrity Apprentice, this promo video for the roast shows Joan throwing a diva tantrum as she demands an alcoholic drink from the crew. At one point, she bites the leg of some poor schmuck who gets in the way. Hmm, presumably because she NEEDS this drink.
