Lampanelli -- Joan Rivers Roast Wasn't Worth It

7/27/2009 10:47 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

There's a reason insult master Lisa Lampanelli didn't show up to the Comedy Central roast of Joan Rivers this weekend -- if she couldn't be in charge, it wasn't worth her precious time.

A week after Kathy Griffin was announced as the roastmaster for the event in Los Angeles, Lampanelli -- who's usually the headliner at these things -- dropped the following message on her Twitter page:

"No Joan Rivers roast for me this year. Not worth doing if I ain't roastmaster -- besides summer is for fun, not work."

Burn.

by far Lisa is much funnier that Kathy. For people that don't know Lisa, she is female Don Rickles. She is hilarius!

Lisa is funny,out there,edgy and happening. Kathy Griffin is an un-funny hack. What did she do with her husband. Did he get fed up and leave? I would. Kathy Griffin couldn't be a lip on Joan River's ancient vagina!
