Love hurts at David Hasselhoff's Comedy Central Roast

August 13, 2010 | 10:30 am


Flanked by a squadron of dancing German maidens and swinging his best Vegas-style groove, David Hasselhoff -- former "Baywatch" star, European rock god, ex-"America's Got Talent" judge and drunken YouTube sensation -- was singing a happy tune as he entered a packed Sony Studios soundstage for the taping of "The Comedy Central Roast of David Hasselhoff."

During the roast, which airs Sunday on Comedy Central, Hasselhoff is comically skewered by several personalities, including former costar Pamela Anderson, Seth MacFarlane of "Family Guy," comics Lisa Lampanelli, Greg Giraldo and Jeffrey Ross, and actor George Hamilton. Hasselhoff is subjected to some sharp-edged barbs, but though they sound vicious, the event is supposed to be all about love for "The Hoff." And he is definitely in on the joke.

For more on the story, check out this feature, plus a photo gallery of the Hasselhoff event and a brief history of Comedy Central roasts.
