Larry the Cable Guy is famous for his sleeveless flannel shirts but Comedy Central is planning some new rips for the famous comedian. The Comedy Central Roast of Larry the Cable Guy will air on Sunday, March 15 at 10 p.m.
The roast will be executive produced by Joel Gallen from Tenth Planet Productions, who has worked with Comedy Central in the past on roasts of celebrities Bob Saget, Flavor-Flav, William Shatner, and Pamela Anderson. Larry the Cable Guy himself will also be an executive producer.
