Get ready for the upcoming Comedy Central roast of Roseanne Barr. The outspoken comedienne will be roasted on Aug. 4, but we won’t get to see it on TV until Aug. 12. Barr said of the dubious honor, “All I can say is good luck finding anything about me to make fun of — I mean, I’ve never made a mistake or offended anyone in my life!”

While Comedy Central reps haven’t announced who will roast Roseanne, producer Kent Alterman had this to say of the fete: “Celebrating Roseanne’s unprecedented achievements in comedy and television will surely inspire us to make this roast more reminiscent of the classic roasts, where the intimacy of friends jousting with each other came through.”

Don’t expect Barr’s ex Tom Arnold to participate in the roast, however; his rep said to TMZ that he had “absolutely no interest” in doing so.
