Allan's Perspective is not recommended for the politically correct, or the overly religious! (Some people have opinions, and some have convictions ..., what we offer is Perspective!)

It's time to retire the Celebrity Roast!
On Labour Day Monday the Comedy Channel ran a whole days worth of Celebrity Roasts, which weren't much to write home about to begin with, but now they have degenerated into sick, inane, clumsy and nasty humour that does nothing for the audience except make them cringe in discomfort and embarrassment.
Let me give you an example of the Friars Club Roasts that I grew up with when I was a kid!
But,these things have degenerated a bit since then.
Not only did Coulter find herself on the receiving end of some of the night’s harshest burns, it also appeared as though all of her jokes directed at Lowe totally bombed. According to her, however, she nailed it, and Comedy Central just edited the special to present a different picture.
Coulter, who said she wrote her own jokes with a little help from some friends, spoke to TMZ about the roast on Tuesday. When asked how she thought she did, Coulter replied, “I don’t know how they edited it, but I know I got laughs when I was there.”
After TMZ executive producer Charles Latibeaudiere expressed his surprise at her statement, noting how bad it actually seemed on screen, Coulter added, “They didn’t seem to be wanting to do me any favors.”
Can we just point out, though, that she agreed to be part of this roast, likely knowing how she’d come across? Seriously.
The Huffington Post has reached out to Comedy Central for comment and will update this post accordingly.
