Every Comedy Central Roast, From Worst to Best

From Flavor Flav to Larry the Cable Guy, we rank every one of the network's insult-athons

14. Jeff Foxworthy

Given that the clean-cut father figure of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour is the guest of honor, it's not surprising that this particular roast is a highly populist affair — you get the comedy stylings of Bill Engvall, Larry the Cable Guy, Anna Nicole Smith and a George W. Bush impersonator, all backed by the wanky guitar riffs of G.E. Smith. Foxworthy comes off like a remarkably likable guy, but as he's spent a lifetime taking himself down with redneck jokes, all that's left for veterans of Colin Quinn's old Tough Crowd crew like Greg Giraldo and Nick DiPaolo to do is knock the man's pedophile mustache and kill time. Occasionally, you get a well-crafted quip like Quinn's crack about the salt-of-the-earth stand-up being "the hillbilly metrosexual judge in a child beauty pageant." But we'll put it this way: You know you're a die-hard Foxworthy fan if you can make it through the whole thing without reaching for the remote.
