Next Monday, Comedy Central will air “The Roast of Rob Lowe.” If you’ve never seen a roast, here’s how it goes: a bunch of people go up on stage and make fun of each other, as well as the person whose roast it is. That’s it.
Things can get pretty nasty sometimes, though, especially if the subject has a scandalous history. There are plenty of things to make fun of Rob Lowe about. He has a sex tape. He’s been party to several lawsuits against former nannies. He left “The West Wing” because he didn’t feel he was the clear star of the show. Several of his movies have flopped. His “Parks and Recreation” character, Chris Traeger, was a ridiculous human that once looked in the mirror and told himself to “stop pooping.”
Peyton Manning, the former NFL quarterback, is one of the roasters at Lowe’s roast. I’m sure he touches on some other stuff during his set, but Manning also chose to make fun of Lowe for trying to break the news of Manning’s retirement before Manning had actually chosen to retire.
Of course, Manning couldn’t resist taking a shot at his rival, Tom Brady, during the joke.
Low blow, Peyton.
