COMEDY CENTRAL(R) to Rip More Than Flannel Sleeves - Network to Roast Larry the Cable Guy

"COMEDY CENTRAL Roast Of Larry The Cable Guy" To Tape In LA On March 1, 2009

NEW YORK, Jan. 7 -- COMEDY CENTRAL is stocking up on the ammo and bringing out its big guns when it roasts comedian Larry the Cable Guy. The hits will be dirty, fast and hard. Larry will be making the night unfor-git-able during this star-studded evening, which will tape in Los Angeles on March 1, 2009. The "COMEDY CENTRAL Roast of Larry The Cable Guy" will air on Sunday, March 15 at 10:00 p.m.

"It is an honor that COMEDY CENTRAL has chosen me to be roasted. Only a handful of folks have been dumb enough to accept. And believe me, I'm pretty dumb! I'm looking forward to this about as much as I am to a prostate check with a doctor with a hook arm," said Larry the Cable Guy.

"Larry is an incredible sport who knows how to laugh at himself -- which will come in handy when he is being pummeled by our illustrious roasters. This is taking roasting to the next level," said Elizabeth Porter, SVP, specials and talent, COMEDY CENTRAL.

Larry the Cable Guy is a comedy icon. He is a platinum-selling recording artist, movie star, television star, best-selling author and one of the most successful comics today. Larry is a two-time Grammy nominee and has received numerous awards such as Billboard's 2005 Comedy Artist Of The Year and Comedy Album Of The Year as well as Billboard's Top Comedy Tour Award (2006).

The "COMEDY CENTRAL Roast Of Larry Of The Cable Guy" will be executive produced by Joel Gallen from Tenth Planet Productions, who also executive produced and directed the "COMEDY CENTRAL Roast Of Bob Saget," "COMEDY CENTRAL of Flavor-Flav," the Emmy-Nominated "COMEDY CENTRAL Roast Of William Shatner" and the "COMEDY CENTRAL Roast Of Pamela Anderson."
