Katey Sagal, Carrie Fisher And Seth Green To Roast Roseanne At Comedy Central

Last week we shared the a teaser for the upcoming Comedy Central Roast of Roseanne, and at that time, aside from knowing that Jane Lynch would be serving as Roast Master for the event, we didn't know who would be taking the podium to poke fun at Roseanne. There's a pretty great assortment of talent joining the dais for the Roast, including a woman who knows a little something about playing the wife and mother of a lower-middle-class TV family.

Comedy Central shared the following new teaser, along with the announcement that Married with Children's Katey Sagal was among the celebrities set to roast Roseanne next month. Joining the Sons of Anarchy star are Carrie Fisher, Sharon Stone and Seth Green, in addition to comedians Anthony Jeselnik, Jeffrey Ross and Amy Schumer. Sounds like a pretty fantastic line-up! And based on this teaser, Roseanne seems pretty confident that things are going to be ok. Everyone loves her, after all!

I love the female presence lined up already, with Sagal, Stone and Fisher set to appear. And who doesn't love Seth Green? Add on a few roast-experienced comedians and it sounds like the event is lining up nicely. You can check out the previously released teaser here.

The Comedy Central Roast of Roseanne is set to air August 12 at 10/9c on Comedy Central. (It will tape Saturday August 4 at the Hollywood Palladium).
