THE "COMEDY CENTRAL ROAST OF ROB LOWE" PREMIERES IN ASIA ON SATURDAY, 10 SEPTEMBER
SINGAPORE, 6 SEPTEMBER 2016 – The hits were dirty, fast and hard. We are happy to report that Rob Lowe walked away unscathed; Ann Coulter, well that’s a whole other story. Nothing was off limits at this year’s annual Comedy Central Roast. Lowe was pelted with jokes about his sex tape, nannies, and his acting career, yet it was Coulter who felt the sharpest barbs from the left and from the right. Comedian David Spade served as Roast Master for the two-hour special which taped last month at Sony Studios in Los Angeles. The Comedy Central Roast of Rob Lowe premieres in Asia on Saturday, 10 September at 8pm (TH/WIB), 9pm (HK/PH/SG/TW) and 10pm (MY) on Comedy Central. A repeat telecast will air on Saturday, 10 September at 10.55pm (TH/WIB), 11.55pm (HK/PH/SG/TW) and Sunday, 11 September at 12.55am (MY).
