Peyton Manning Got Lit Up At Comedy Central’s Rob Lowe Roast

BOSTON (CBS) — It was Rob Lowe’s special night at the Comedy Central roast that aired Monday night, but as is tradition, everyone on the dais was subject to the wrath of whoever stepped to the podium. Among the special guests was retired future Hall-of-Fame quarterback Peyton Manning, who was roasted as much as anyone in the room.

Manning made headlines after the special was taped last week due to a joke he cracked about Tom Brady and DeflateGate, which closed out his routine. But he could not escape jokes about his forehead, his brother Eli, and yes, even Tom Brady.

Here are some of the best jokes …

“I just got Peyton Manning’s first book. It’s called Football Good, Fire Bad.” – Jeff Ross

“Peyton Manning is here because Eli is still out there making his dad proud.” – Jewel

“Peyton looks like if football players evolved to no longer need helmets.” – Pete Davidson

“I don’t know much about football but I love Peyton in commercials. You’re so good at them, legitimately. I’d say you’re the greatest of all time. You’re like the Tom Brady of being in commercials.” – Nikki Glaser
