This four-night televised roast-off features Jeff Ross, host Brian Moses and a panel of celebrity judges. The comics will compete onstage while adhering to the Roast Battle rules: original material only, no physical contact, and every battle ends with a hug.
With his insightful wit and fearless candor, comedian John Oliver, formerly of the The Daily Show (1996), reviews the crazy current affairs happening in America and around the world. In doing so, he provides a wry perspective that punctures pomposity and cuts through all pretensions with comically outrageous audacity.
