Comedy Central will roast Joan Rivers.
The 75-year-old, raspy-voiced comedian will be held up for comedic slaughter in a special taped July 26 in Los Angeles. It will air on the Viacom Inc.-owned network on Aug. 9.
Rivers has never been shy about her plastic surgeries — something that's sure to be a subject of jokes during the roast.
But Rivers has made herself the butt of her humor perhaps more than anything else.
On Wednesday, she joked that the last time she was roasted was for a "two-for-one special: Joan of Arc and me."
