Tom Arnold On the Roseanne Roast

Before he could leave, Howard asked Tom about his appearance on the Roseanne roast, so Tom said he had to ignore their history ("You've got to forget that shit if you're going to do something like this.") and the chance that he was a last-ditch effort for ratings: "If she had the roasters she wanted, I would be nowhere near that place." But it was a stress-free gig--he didn't write his set down until the morning of the roast: "I knew every joke I was going to do and I'd probably known them for 18 years."
