COMEDY CENTRAL� TO SPANK AMERICA'S FAVORITE DAD! NETWORK TO ROAST COMEDIAN BOB SAGET

"COMEDY CENTRAL Roast Of Bob Saget" To Tape In LA

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

NEW YORK, June 26, 2008 -- COMEDY CENTRAL is about to show America that daddy doesn't know best when it roasts comedian Bob Saget. Saget will quickly learn that this is no family-friendly event and will be begging for a time-out during this star-studded evening, which will tape in Los Angeles. The "COMEDY CENTRAL Roast of Bob Saget" will air on Sunday, August 17.

"It's an honor...My ass is already sore," stated Saget.

"Bob Saget is one of the true nice guys. I've apologized to him in advance for what this evening holds in store for him," said Elizabeth Porter, senior vice president, specials and talent for COMEDY CENTRAL.

For some, Bob Saget is known world-wide for his television roles, having set a precedent by simultaneously starring in two top-ten primetime series � the long-running sitcom "Full House" while also serving as the eight-year host of "America�s Funniest Home Videos." For others, Bob is known by a more "adult" audience because of his edgier stand-up comedy, theater, television and film work.

In 2007, Saget kicked off a national theater tour that continues through 2008 and starred in the one-hour HBO special, "That Ain�t Right," which is available on DVD. Over the past year, Saget starred on Broadway in the Tony Award winning play, "The Drowsy Chaperone," hosted the NBC game show "1 vs. 100" and continues to narrate the CBS show, "How I Met Your Mother." He directed the hit DVD release, "Farce of the Penguins," the film, "Dirty Work" and the telefilm, "For Hope." For more information visit www.BobSaget.com.

The "COMEDY CENTRAL Roast Of Bob Saget" will be executive produced by Joel Gallen from Tenth Planet Productions, who also executive produced and directed the "COMEDY CENTRAL Roast Of Flavor-Flav," the Emmy-Nominated "COMEDY CENTRAL Roast Of William Shatner" and the "COMEDY CENTRAL Roast Of Pamela Anderson." Elizabeth Porter is the executive in charge for the network.
