We've been working all week to get our coverage of the David Hasselhoff Roast online, we hope you've been checking it out! #hoff It really was a great time being able to cover the roast! Thanks so much to Comedy Central for allowing us the honor!

The "red carpet" was not a red carpet at all, but a boardwalk complete with lifeguard stands and a larger than life David Hasselhoff. Inside the comedians cracked wise at everyone's expense. The set was amazingly decked out with a two story high KITT voice modulator and a perfectly complete replica from our pal Alex. Afterwards we partied the night away in the VIP after party!

Check out our wrap up text, video and pics below to see what you missed. And be sure to tune in on August 15th at 10pm to laugh for yourself!
