Eighty-eight-year-old comedy legend Don Rickles is set to receive the celebrity roast treatment, and America's favorite BFFs, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, were there to dish out some zingers during the event's taping.

In a short promo clip for the show -- set to air next week -- Fey and Poehler joke about Rickles' advanced age and needle the roast's organizers for the dearth of women present.

"Jesus, I thought that was somebody's purse," Fey said when Poehler reminded the comedienne that Rickles was not dead, and in fact, was sitting at a table right across from them.

"They thought it was important that Don be honored by at least one woman, which apparently we count as," Poehler said of the reason that she and Fey appeared onstage together.

Vanity Fair has a transcript of the pair's entire routine here.

Jon Stewart, Martin Scorsese, Robert De Niro, and Johnny Depp, also make appearances during the event. The roast special will air on Spike TV on May 28th at 9 p.m. Get a sneak peek below:
