Comedy Central announced yesterday that they have secured comic David Spade to host the Comedy Central roast of Rob Lowe. “Comedy Central asked a bunch of ugly guys to make fun of a good-looking guy. I said ‘yes’ right away. Then I realized I wasn’t the good-looking guy,” Spade said in a statement about the gig. Lowe responded to the announcement of Spade’s involvement by tweeting, “This is gonna get ugly. And I’m starting to think that’s the whole point. #RobRoast on #LoweFlame.” The special is filming August 27 and will air on September 5. Spade and Lowe previously starred alongside each other in the 1995 film Tommy Boy.
