Last night’s Comedy Central Roast of Roseanne was about as brutal and filthy as you would expect. Stars like Amy Schumer, Katey Sagal, Wayne Brady, Jeff Ross, Seth Green, Carrie Fisher, Gilbert Gottfried, Tom Arnold, and host Jane Lynch joined forces to unleash their wrath on the former sitcom queen with a bevy of one-liners and cringe-worthy speeches. In fact, the roast was so controversial and foul that Comedy Central had to edit out a good portion of it, including Ross’ now infamous remarks about the Aurora movie theater shooting.
And while not every one-liner landed quite like the comedians on stage expected, a few of them hit flush like a haymaker and stood out among the mayhem. So for those of you who missed it—or if you just want to relive some of the hilarity—we’re revisiting The 15 Funniest Jokes from Comedy Central’s Roast of Roseanne. On a side note, even though we didn’t include it on this list, go and check out a video of Gottfried’s entire set. It was long, rambling, and absolutely incredible, and reading our transcript of it simply wouldn’t do it justice.
