** Not just that. Andy acted pissy over every single joke at his expense during the PamelaAnderson roast... except when Sarah Silverman performed.

Added DiffLines:

** Shaffer ((lampshaded)) the lack of big names with his opening song titled "we couldn't get anyone good."
** Laraine Newman summed up the evening with this little gem: "When Chevy left Saturday Night Live he told us he had a dream, to star in crap movies and then host the worst talk show in history...we knew he could do it."

** The entirety of [[Music/{{Kiss}} Gene Simmons]]' rebuttal. He had a script ready to go to get back at his roasters, but began talking about the charity the roast was for (Wounded Warriors) and got so choked up he tossed it out totally and did a serious call to action for the charity and simply thanked the dais.

* DudeNotFunny: Few of the roastees seem to get genuinely hurt by the roast, as they go in knowing what they're in for (Chevy Chase of all people being a very odd exception to the rule), but do occasionally seem genuinely hurt by a few of the real mean zingers. In fact, the inverse is often true. The meaner the joke, the harder some of the roastees laugh. Drew Carey, Flavor Flav and Joan Rivers being prime examples.

** Drew Carey once wrote a book called ''Dirty Jokes and Beer''. It wasn't really good. Let's remind him. Repeatedly.

Added DiffLines:

** [[https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=HP_aGGgR4Vs The Roast of Weed]] by alcohol, cigarette, cocaine, and other drugs associated with them.
** [[https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=tPUgZlN6cdA The Roast of Mario]], most characters who talks about Mario usually directs theirs jokes towards Luigi, who continues drinking more liquor until he gets fed up with it and throws a tantrum.

* HeadScratchers: Some seemingly easy targets of the roastee gets omitted from (at least the aired version) from the barbs. Whether it's expressly forbidden as per above or just an oversight on the roasters/edited out, it's probably confusing to the audience why certain topics weren't hit.
** Denis Leary, for instance, is somewhat infamous in the comedy world for supposedly lifting his act from Creator/BillHicks. This was alluded to merely one whole time on the broadcast (so seemingly not a forbidden subject).
** William Shatner's infamous alleged toupee also seemed to get off lightly...other than Creator/GeorgeTakei's epic closer (which may have been why, the other roasters laid off to allow George the spotlight).

---> '''Creator/SethMacFarlane:''' Tonight we honour a self-made millionaire. He started with nothing, worked hard and made a fortune. That man is Fred Trump, Donald (Trump's) dad."

* EpicFail: [[Series/JerseyShore Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino]] notoriously crashed and burned at the Trump Roast, and was almost booed off the stage (Jeff Ross actually had to go up and defend him long enough for him to finish.)

* WithFriendsLikeThese: The reason the roastee never gets offended by the hilariously awful statements is usually a combination of having a good sense of humor, knowing what to expect, and most of all, being good friends with the roasters and being able to make a few jokes at each other.

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=en9LDlQnkBs The Roast of HBO]]... which lasts for the first three jokes. After that it quickly becomes everyone roasting everyone else.

** Mike Tyson got in a killer dig by stating he got through a tough time in his life by reading "The Iliad." He then looked at Seth [=MacFarlane=] and said "You're not the only one to get by taking ideas from Homer." Everyone on the dais lost it, especially [=MacFarlane=].
