Comedy Central is pairing up two of America's fiercest comedians. The network announced yesterday that Jane Lynch will be the Roast Master for the upcoming Comedy Central Roast Of Roseanne (#RoseanneRoast). The event will tape in Los Angeles on Saturday, August 4 and will premiere on Comedy Central on Sunday, August 12 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.

"I've long fantasized of ripping Roseanne Barr a new one. But because I don't have the cajones to say anything offensive to her face, I will be hosting the proceedings," said Jane Lynch.

The Comedy Central Roast Of Roseanne will be executive produced by Joel Gallen from Tenth Planet Productions, who also served as Executive Producer and Director of the Comedy Central Roast Of Charlie Sheen and David Hasselhoff. Jonas Larsen is the Executive in Charge for the network.
