Sharon Stone, Carrie Fisher among celebs set to roast Roseanne
When Roseanne Barr is toasted and roasted on Comedy Central, Sharon Stone and Carrie Fisher will be among those firing up the grill, EW has learned. The Comedy Central Roast of Roseanne will also feature Katey Sagal and Seth Green on the dais, along with a wrecking crew of comics such as Jeffrey Ross, Amy Schumer, and Anthony Jeselnik. (Sorry, kids, no Tom Arnold.)
More names are expected to added this week. Jane Lynch has previously been announced as the roast master for the ceremony honoring the comedienne/actress/unsuccessful Green Party presidential candidate that will be filmed on Aug. 4 and air on Aug. 12.
The last celebrity to be roasted on Comedy Central was Charlie Sheen, whose Sept. 2011 spectacle drew 6.4 million viewers, making it the network’s second most watched telecast ever.
