Joan Rivers Roast: Kathy Griffin, Melissa Rivers And More Take Shots At The 'Queen Of Mean' (VIDEO) (NSFW)

Two weeks ago friends and soon-to-be-former friends of Joan Rivers gathered together to send up and put down the Emmy Award-winning comedienne and best-selling author, and last night we finally got to see what happened. Brad Garrett, Mario Cantone, Carl Reiner, Jeffrey Ross, Melissa Rivers and more eviscerated Joan for her comedy, her age, her relationship with her daughter, and her love of plastic surgery.

We all know at this point how lewd and deranged some of the jokes get at these events, but despite how dirty the roasters get, the roastee always gets the last laugh. In this case Joan Rivers, known for her quick (and sometimes evil) tongue got a two-for-the-price-of-once joke in the end the evening: "Brad Garrett, the only thing lower than your show's ratings is Carl Reiner's balls." (SEE THE REST OF JOAN'S RESPONSE BY SCROLLING TO BOTTOM.)

Kathy Griffin emceed the event and started the night off by welcoming the audience to a night of plastic surgery, ugly vagina and corpse jokes.
