Jane Lynch named as host of Comedy Central roast for Roseanne, June 28, 2012

Roseanne Barr will soon be in the hot seat, and Jane Lynch has been tapped to fan the flames. Comedy Central announced Wednesday that the “Glee” star will serve as roast master for “Roast of Roseanne” set to tape August 4 in Los Angeles.

“All I can say is good luck finding anything about me to make fun of…I mean, I’ve never made a mistake or offended anyone in my life!” Barr said Monday after learning she’d been named the network’s next celebrity roastee.

Lynch followed Barr’s tongue-in-cheek lead Wednesday in sharing, “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.”

Comedy Central has not yet announceed the other comedians and celebrities who will be joining Lynch to deride Barr.

“Roast of Roseanne” will air August 12 at 10p.m.
