About

The show that turns smack talk into art!

Roast Battle UK puts two comedians head-to-head in a battle of wit and put-downs. Each comic has 5 jokes to ”roast” their opponent. The opponent can respond with an off the cuff rebuttal. Ultimately, the winner is decided by a guest panel of audacious judges.

Since November 2018, we started our first ‘Premier League’ season. Wins and losses are now tallied and the top battlers will be put into a tournament in May 2019, where a trophy and prize money can be won.

Undeniably, Roast Battle doesn’t fail to live up to its expectations, serving to showcase a no-holds-barred contest of comedic athleticism, brazen putdowns and lightning-fast comebacks.”
