Rob Lowe Roast Comedy Central

Comedy Central to Roast Rob Lowe

Rob Lowe is about to go through a different type of grinder.

Comedy Central on Thursday announced that Lowe will be its next celebrity roast victim, following in the illustrious footsteps of stars like Pamela Anderson, Justin Bieber and Flavor Flav; the taping and air dates have yet to be revealed.

“Rob Lowe is handsome, talented, successful and handsome,” says Comedy Central president Ken Alterman, adding, “He needs to be roasted”

Meanwhile, Lowe has his own thoughts about this tremendous honor: “What a thrill to once again be following in Justin Bieber’s footsteps. I look forward to a night of hilarious jokes recycled from the James Franco Roast. I would like to express my gratitude to the members of my family who have passed away and therefore will not have to endure what promises to be a very special evening.”
