The Emmy-nominated annual â€œComedy Central Roastâ€ took place in LAâ€™s Sony Culiver City last Monday evening and sitting in the hot seat was none other than Germanyâ€™s adopted national treasure David Hasselhoff aka â€˜The Hoffâ€™.
The starâ€“studded event saw George Hamilton, Hulk Hogan even Pamela Anderson and other Baywatch co-stars take to the stage to pack some good-natured jibbing at The Hoffâ€™s expense.
Receiving a standing ovation on arrival, it may just have been an excuse for a closer look at the stars questionable wardrobe choice. A glutton for punishment, he opted to wear a one buttoned super â€“shiny jacket, made of a fabric thatâ€™s textureresembled a crinkled black sack complete with garish red pocket square, all over a floppy open collared shirt.
If this wasnâ€™t bad enough he has been rocking the same blow-dried hairdo since his 80â€™s stint in Knight Rider. That said, this roasting is rumoured to have been Comedy Centralâ€™s best yet, with The Hoff taking it with the best of humour and even performing for that added cheese factor.
Well, it helps when long time friend and pin-up Pamela Anderson is the one doing the grilling.
