Hearing my fave, #18 Peyton Manning will roast Rob Lowe next month. Wow. #Colts.
That statement, Comedy Central has announced, is true.
THAT statement, we all know by now, was NOT true.
But, yes, you saw right: the legendary former Indianapolis Colts quarterback will be a featured roaster on "The Comedy Central Roast of Rob Lowe," which will debut on Labor Day, Sept. 5.
In fact, the taping for the show is on Saturday.

This is one appearance that Manning fans across the world will undoubtedly enjoy. We all know about No. 18's terrific sense of humor (case in point: this "United Way PSA" on Saturday Night Live), but this forum gives Manning a chance to potentially unwind a little bit and really say what's on his mind.
Like maybe the fact that he doesn't really need Rob Lowe as his PR spokesman.
The "roast master" that night will be David Spade, and joining Manning on stage will be Jimmy Carr, Pete Davidson, Bo Derek, Rob Riggle and Jeff Ross.
The Sept. 5 program will be the 15th in the "Comedy Central Roast" series, as Lowe joins a star-studded list of roastees that includes Denis Leary, Jeff Foxworthy, Pamela Anderson, William Shatner, Flavor Flav, Bob Saget, Larry the Cable Guy, Joan Rivers, David Hasselhoff, Donald Trump, Charlie Sheen, Roseanne Barr, James Franco and Justin Bieber.
That being said, Manning still has a couple days to prepare his jokes for the roast. Anybody willing to help out with a joke or two, feel free to write them down in the comments section below.
