The Commenters’ 10 Favorite Comedy Central Roast Sets Ever

Yesterday, we posted our list of the fifteen best Comedy Central Roast sets ever. However, comedy is subjective, and many of you offered differing opinions. Since this isn’t a roastatorship, we wanted to highlight your choices. There are some overlapping comedians from our list, but there are also a lot of nontraditional choices like Bea Arthur, George Takei, and Cloris Leachman. Enjoy these people being comedically mean.
