IT’S TIME TO HASSLE “THE HOFF” THIS JUNE WITH COMEDY CENTRAL
"Comedy Central Roast of David Hasselhoff" and "Hoff The Record" Premiere in Asia on Wednesday, 29 June
SINGAPORE, 9 JUNE 2016 – Psst, Hoff the record, we are telling you – “The Hoff” David Hasselhoff is back! This June, get ready for a hoff-fully good time in the rudest, raunchiest television event on Comedy Central, Comedy Central Roast of David Hasselhoff which premieres in Asia on Wednesday, 29 June at 8.25pm (TH/WIB), 9.25pm (HK/PH/SG/TW) and 10.25pm (MY). Taped in 2010, Hasselhoff’s colourful life provides lots of fodder for a good old Roast like no other. And if that’s not enough drama for one night, new comedy series Hoff The Record premiering on Wednesday, 29 June at 7.55pm (TH/WIB), 8.55pm (HK/PH/SG/TW) and 9.55pm (MY) sees Hasselhoff acting as a fictional version of himself, as he tries to revive his profession after a series of unsuccessful marriages and bad career choices.
Following his stint as a dishy Baywatch hunk and other career highlights coupled with his real-life drama, it’s almost too easy to roast Hasselhoff. From running in slo-mo on the beach to inspiring Germany with the power of cheesy pop, Comedy Central Roast of David Hasselhoff is proof that some cheeses age better with time.
Emmy™-nominated “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane heads the festivities as the evening’s Roast Master. With the "Baywatch" and "Knight Rider" star's entire career prime for a tidal wave of razor sharp barbs, the panel of gleeful roasters include Pamela Anderson, Hulk Hogan, Whitney Cummings, Gillbert Gottfried, Tracy Bingham, George Hamilton, Lisa Lampanelli, Jeffrey Ross and the late Greg Giraldo.
Roastee Hasselhoff said, "I have always been a major fan of Roasts... bring it on! I'm ready to take the heat." No life preserver can save him now!
Repeat telecasts of Comedy Central Roast of David Hasselhoff will air on Wednesday, 29 June at 11.45pm (TH/WIB), Thursday, 30 June at 12.45am and 3.50pm (HK/PH/SG/TW), 1.45am and 4.50pm (MY) and Friday, 1 July at 12.15pm (TH/WIB), 1.15am (HK/PH/SG/TW) and 2.15am (MY).
The heat is turned up a notch higher as Hasselhoff – complete with a previously unknown German son and an oddball entourage arrives in the U.K. to try and reignite his career in excruciatingly funny, semi-improvised comedy Hoff The Record.
Shot in documentary style, this hilarious series follows Hasselhoff, 30 years after he rose to fame with global hits Knight Rider and Baywatch. After five divorces and some misguided professional decisions, The Hoff is in the U.K. ready to star in a new independent film that could reboot his career. But alarm bells start to ring when he gets the low budget treatment on arrival from the U.S.
After a series of on-set clashes, it’s soon clear that the director has a very different vision for the project, and The Hoff tasks his manager with finding him something more worthy of his talents. As his attempts at everything from fronting a charity to becoming a global peacemaker fall into disarray, tune in to find out if The Hoff can get his career back on track and make sense of his increasingly surreal life. Season 2 of Hoff The Record will premiere on Comedy Central on Wednesday, 20 July at 8.25pm (TH/WIB), 9.25pm (HK/PH/SG/TW) and 10.25pm (MY).
