Roasting is an art form as old as time. Whether best friends, total strangers, or worst enemies, there’s nothing better than standing in front of a crowd and joking the absolute shit out of someone. The Ultimate Roasting Championship is a monthly live roast competition show where our contestants compete for comedy glory (and a small cash prize) by embarrassing their friends. The best part is you, the audience gets to help us decide who wins! Show up, get drunk, and cheer your ass off for whoever cuts the deepest. Two Contestants. One Winner. No Mercy.
