NEW YORK, May 21 /PRNewswire/ -- COMEDY CENTRAL is spicing up this year's Roast with lots of "flava." Rapper and lova Flavor Flav may love NYC but LA is where all the haters will be!

the Network's first-ever carbon-neutral event. "The COMEDY CENTRAL Roast of Flavor Flav" will air on Sunday, August 12 at 10:00 p.m.
"We only roast the ones we love -- and the world is clearly crazy about this guy. This event will be full of surprises as Flavor Flav is going to experience a whole new kind of love in this Roast," said Elizabeth Porter, senior vice president, specials and talent for COMEDY CENTRAL.
