Self-aware Busey is the worst Busey, but he's still 5-star Busey.

An almost inevitable shipwreck is circumnavigated by... writers.
I was sorely disappointed by this. This wasn't really Busey. This was Busey finally on medication (read: De-Buseyfied) reciting words off of a teleprompter put there by Brown graduates hired to make sure that the hour of monologues delivered by question marks pulled in okay ratings with paying cable subscribers who clearly don't care about Larry the Cable Guy.
If this was the old Busey, and if he had written it, there would have been at least one free association rant, and one nonsensical acronym espousing a philosophy of insanity. Instead, we got Lisa Lampanelli jokes about her having sex with black people. How droll!
His brain damage is real enough, he's just learned how to present it as an entertaining personality trait.

notice no one that matters showed up to roast this person, who the hell is half the people there? Who is that black dude?
this is horrible, im so torn on how to vote.
Ha ha, you're standing up to JON STEWART! You've got the balls of a slightly pussier Tucker Carlson!
My money's on them roasting Carlos Mencia next.
What's wrong with you people? This is a Comedy Central Roast - a fucking ROAST, the hemorrhoid of amusement - with a guy doing black people jokes, vagina jokes, and black people in the fat woman's vagina, who is always on these things getting that joke told about her. I have no clue who that woman is! I literally only ever see her on Roast clips getting that same fucking joke on her. Then Gary Busey says "I'm Gary Busey" and everyone goes WHAAA WE ON TV and it's fucking LARRY THE FUCKING CABLE GUY.
WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE?
Well... I suppose. But there ARE two good Roast bits in existence.
1) The one where Jamie Foxx mocks the dude for doing Roast jokes.
2) The one where Norm Macdonald intentionally bombs with overly conventional jokes in order to mock the Roast.
This video is just of Roast jokes. Youtube is swarming with them. We must try harder.
Lisa Lampanelli, PUT THOSE THINGS AWAY. Holy fucking shit. I'd make a joke about how big and nasty and obviously fake her terrifying substitutes for actual tits are, but then I'd be dangerously close to qualifying to appear on the Comedy Central Roast of Some Dumb Fuck Everybody Secretly Loathes.
I was disappointed that the Larry the Cable Guy roast wasn't just everyone coming up on stage and reading David Cross's letter to him over and over.
The letter has a little less impact when you consider the number of absolutely terrible projects Cross whores himself out in. But he's still my favorite stand-up and I love that letter.
Specifically the part in the beginning about "glorification of dumb" and "salt of the earth" etc. When I read that I was thinking, holy hell, someone out there thinks like I do, that's extremely comforting.
