When you've had as many public scandals over the years as Rob Lowe has had, then it's pretty brave to willing agree to take part in a Comedy Central Roast. 

Fair dues to the former Parks and Rec. star though, he was game for everything that was thrown at him. Guests on the night who took part in the roasting included David Spade, Jimmy Carr, Peyton Manning, Rob Riggle, Pete Davidson, Nikki Glaser, Jewel, Ralph Macchio and Ann Coulter. 

In fact, it was sometimes hard to tell if controversial broadcaster (and Donald Trump supporter) Ann Coulter was a roaster or a roastee, such was the level of vitriol that her fellow roasters felt towards her and they weren't afraid to let her know it. 

Here's 11 of the most shocking Rob Lowe jokes from the show. 


"For years Rob Lowe had a sex addiction. He cured it by getting less famous." — Spade

"It's not easy being Rob. He said being so handsome made it difficult for him to find meaningful roles. I wanted to ask Brad Pitt about that, but he was too busy acting in meaningful roles." — Spade

"Some of you may know Rob from the West Wing. Rob, I assume your pal Charlie Sheen helped you out with that. He’s used to working with aids." — Spade

"Rob was in Austin Powers 16 years ago. Can you believe it’s 16? Or as he calls it, 18." — Spade

"Rob has been sober 26 years. To put that in perspective. If sobriety was a baby, he would have f—ed it 10 years ago." — Spade

"People call Rob Lowe a bad actor, but that’s because they never saw him tell his wife he didn’t f— that nanny." — Davidson

"Rob, in both your sex tapes you appeared with two other people — good God, you can’t even carry a sex tape." — Riggle

"Rob defies age ... restrictions." — Glaser

"You look like you’re sculpted. You put the statue in statutory rape." — Glaser on Lowe

"God I had such a crush on you when I was little girl. If only I had known that’s when I had my best shot." — Glaser on Lowe

"Rob Lowe. Or as the girl in the sex tape said: Rob, no!" — Jeff Ross


And as a bonus here's some of the best digs at Ann Coulter.

"She seems stiff and conservative, but she gets wild in the sheets. Just ask the clan." — Spade 

"I haven’t seen you laugh this hard since Trayvon Martin got shot." — Spade 

"How do I roast somebody from hell?" — Ross 

"Ann, after your set tonight. We've all witnessed the first bombing that you can't blame on a Muslim." — Lowe

"Ann what happened? You wrote 11 books but you couldn't write a single f—ing joke?" — Jeff Ross

"Ann Coulter has written 11 books. Twelve if you count Mein Kampf." — Glaser
