"I'm not nervous at all, I'm excited," she told E!Online.
"It's going to be a blast as soon as I get in there and start drinking!"
Roastmaster Jane Lynch opened the show with some snappy one liners.
"She's one of those rare celebrities so famous that she's referred to by just one name—bitch," Lynch said.
"I waved to you outside but then I realized it was just one of those inflatable parking lot gorillas.”
Meanwhile comedian Jeffrey Ross tackled the big topics…
"I've got to give it to you, you've been tortured and abused all night and you're still hanging in there. Roseanne, I'm not talking to you, I'm talking to the chair you're sitting on," he joked.
But the biggest surprise of all came towards the end of the show, when Roseanne’s ex Tom Arnold took to the stage.
"In 1985, Roseanne went on Johnny Carson, which is every comic's dream back then," said Arnold.
"She killed, he laughed his ass off, he gave her a thumbs up and he invited her to sit on his couch. She got validation from the King which can never be taken away from her.
“And I just want to say, Rosanne, you were my Johnny Carson. And thank you for the thumbs up and thank you for inviting me to sit on your couch for a little bit."
Stay tuned - the Roast of Roseanne hits Comedy Central New Zealand this September!
