Kathy Griffin will host Joan Rivers roast on Comedy Central

Posted on

My Life on the D List star Kathy Griffin will host the Comedy Central Roast of Joan Rivers. The event will tape on July 26 in Los Angeles, and air on the network on Aug. 9. “I will be roasting Joan with more gentleness and tenderness than her latest chemical peel,” said Griffin in the network release. “On the other hand, I will give her a verbal pap smear and god only knows what I’m going to find down there.”
