Jewel wages a surprisingly funny and savage attack on Ann Coulter

    1 of 2 2 of 2

      For years the knock on Jewel was that she was overly earnest—remember Robert Smigel's TV Funhouse clip on Saturday Night Live, where the singer-songwriter's poetry literally bored a parade of cartoon characters to death?

      Who knew that the alt-folk veteran was not only hilarious, but every bit as vicious as the likes of Sarah Silverman and Amy Schumer?

      Right-winger poster girl Ann Coulter probably didn't, but she learned pretty quickly at Rob Lowe's Comedy Central Roast. The event actually took place in September, but footage of Jewel taking dead aim at a seemingly humourless Coulter is again making the rounds on the interweb this week.  

      That probably has everything to do with Coulter's outrage-worthy tweet yesterday on the eve of the presidential election. 

      Jewel wastes no time singling out her primary target when she takes the stage at Lowe's roast, kicking off with "I cannot support everything that's being said up here tonight, but as somebody who hates Ann Coulter, I'm delighted."

      So is everyone who's been on Coulter's Twitter account this past 18 hours.
