Jimmy Kimmel Gets Cut Out of Comedy Central Roast

July 23rd, 2007 // 10 Comments

It would seem that at a roast, especially one for such a figure as “Flavor of Love” star Flavor Flav would have a pretty much “anything goes” policy, in terms of jokes. However, since the roast is televised, there’s only so much censors can allow to be shown on television, as is evidenced by the censorship of Jimmy Kimmel’s jab at Flav’s parenting skills. Kimmel poked at Flavor, telling the rapper “Chris Benoit is a better father than you.”

A TMZ staffer who was at the roast (airing August 12 on Comedy Central) just happened to be sitting next to two censors for the network. When Kimmel made the crack, the censors looked at each other and laughed while shaking their heads “no.” One immediately put down “Chris Benoit” on a list of jokes to cut.

Meanwhile, ASL made it to the red-carpet for the event, getting loads of pictures of the attendees of the event, including a recently rehabbed Brigitte Nielsen, terrifyingly muscular and quite orange Carrot Top, Ice-T and Coco, Snoop Dogg, scads of scantily-clad “Flavor of Love” contestants, Ron Jeremy and many more of your favorite trash-tastic reality stars and sharp-tongued roasters. Check back tomorrow for more pix and exploits from the red carpet!


A few more photos from the red carpet are after the jump.

  1. Kimmel sucks

    And THAT is the reason why I don’t like Kimmel or his “oh I’m jewish I can tell any joke” minded girlfriend.

    If there’s supposed to be free speech in the United States, why do you have censors? Your society is one of continuous hypocrisy.

    Person – television has censors – you know, the FCC and stuff. He was free to say it at the event, he said it, and they are free to chop it out for television viewing. I think he’s a total jerk anyway and have never found him or his girlfriend funny. She is too crass and tasteless. He’s just not funny – that comment was in very poor taste.

    Person – pray tell, what non-hypocritical society do you come from?

    Damn what the F*ck is up with Carrot tops shoulders..

    Carrot Top is such a freak! A year ago, I saw him in Las Vegas at a shopping center. He dropped a friend off and got out of his Hummer briefly. Talk about shocked. I said, “NO WAY!”

    I think this fruitloop has mental problems stemming from when he was a little red-haired freckle-faced boy. He had a wimpy body. He was ugly. I know he didn’t get girls. I wouldn’t doubt that he got bullied at one point. Now he is overcompensating by becoming a male version of plastic surgery-addicted Joan Rivers and overdosing on growth hormones and steroids… a total nutcase! Ecchhh! Somebody needs to stop him NOW!
