Hasselhoff laffs off Comedy Central roast

'Baywatch' star grilled on the Sony lot

Taking in account his drunken binge on YouTube, a music career appreciated only in Germany and a TV resume with such not-nominated Emmy gems as “Baywatch,” “Baywatch Knights” and “Knight Rider,” David Hasselhoff was ripe for the hundreds of barbs sent his way Sunday night at the Comedy Central roast on the Sony lot.

Roasters included the usual group — Lisa Lampanelli, Greg Giraldo, Jeffrey Ross, Gilbert Gottfried and Whitney Cummings — along with a handful of newcomers, including Jerry Springer, George Hamilton and Hulk Hogan.

While all on the dais took shots at the Hoff, some of the best zingers were fired off for the fellow roasters.

Said Giraldo of Pamela Anderson: “You’ve caused more men to spill seed than Muhammad Ali at a bird feeder.” And Cummings on Ross: “The only thing slower than your career is Lisa Lampanelli’s metabolism.”

And this one for the man of honor, from Hamilton: “What are the odds an alcoholic gets cast in a show where the car drives itself?”
