The roast of Flavor Flav was excellent, but this is even better. What makes it better is that the insults hurled at Bob, although as incisive as ever, are not mean-spirited as they have been in previous roasts. Topics range from Saget's younger girlfriends ("He has two daughters in college, and three girlfriends in high school."), to his influence on sitcoms ("Not only did you kill the sitcom. You raped it and left it for dead in a ditch.") to his brand of comedy ("I watched your show in hi-def because to enjoy it you have to be either high or deaf!"). There is a downer in this, and his name is Jon Lovitz. His turn at the mic is a low point redeemed somewhat when the other comedians have a go at him. The rest are very good in there disections, the best being Norm Macdonald, Gilbert Gottfried, Jeff Ross and most surprisingly Cloris Leachman who shows that she can give as good as she takes -- her first line in her set secures her one of the biggest ovations of the show.
Definitely in the upper echelons of comedy specials that I have seen
