|Roast of Joan Rivers||Sun, Aug 9 10pm / 9c|
|Greg Giraldo - On Kathy Griffin|
Joan Rivers is a pro. What a sense of humor. Catface notwithstanding, she took some of the most brutal ribbing with a smile (although that could be because she has no facial elasticity left), saying at points when the audience booed as the jibes got too personal, "-- but it's funny!" Nothing was off-limits. For someone who has made a handsome living making fun of celebrity, Rivers was not above taking some of the guff herself. Comedian Greg Giraldo started off his roast of Joan Rivers by calling Emcee Kathy Griffith "Tranny Bonaduce." It just goes downhill from there ..
