Here are the comedians and celebrities for the Comedy Central Roast of Rob Lowe

Comedy Central continues its tradition of mashing up comedians, friends and random celebrities and infamous people for the dais of its annual celebrity roasts for this weekend’s planned Roast of Rob Lowe.

The full, final lineup of roasters toasting Lowe?

David Spade will preside over the #LoweRoast, with comedians Jeff Ross, David Spade, Pete Davidson, Nikki Glaser, Rob Riggle and Jimmy Carr, plus jests from Ann Coulter, Jewel, Peyton Manning and Ralph Macchio. Ross is the real deal “Roast Master,” despite Spade carrying that title for the Lowe Roast on the TV. Glaser is hot off of her second season of Not Safe for the network, while SNL’s Davidson also sings in the network’s Goddamn Comedy Jam special, and Carr receives this honorable consolation prize for getting jobbed in the judging of last month’s Roast Battle. And for those of you scoring at home, the actual Roast Battle winner from last month’s televised tourney in Montreal — Mike Lawrence — already was hired to write for the #LoweRoast before the competition.

The “Comedy Central Roast of Rob Lowe” will tape at Sony Studios this Saturday and premiere on Labor Day at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

Here’s a teaser from behind the scenes
