The Comedy Central Roast of Pamela

Pamela Anderson subjected herself to this extended exercise in humiliation to gain publicity for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, so good on her.

After Pamela makes her entry to the tune of the Jet song Cold Hard Bitch, what we get is a line of second-string American comedians tearing strips off her and each other. Some of it is hilariously vicious, but it's often exceedingly crass and relies almost entirely on the size of Anderson's breasts, the size of Tommy Lee's notorious appendage and the damage it might have done to various parts of Anderson's anatomy. Anderson and Lee actually wind up getting some of the funniest lines, and a completely trashed Courtney Love goes some way towards stealing the show.

Incredibly, despite her see-through top and playing with her Boobs, Anderson manages to emerge from the train wreck with something resembling dignity. Next week it's William Shatner's turn to get the treatment.
