Welp. It finally happened. The Negro Wave has gone viral. Follow them on Twitter! This is Jeremiah Watkins, Jamar Neighbors and Willie Hunter. They are the original winds of that started the Wave. They can be a Nissan Key to Vict. If you’re joke gets them off their seats, gets Jamar to take his shirt off and Jeremiah to make a mess of the stage? You probably got that round bruh. On the other side, if your joke bombs, expect them or Coach Tea to let you and everyone in the room know. And our Waves are ever-growing. In addition to Negro, the Wave also comes in Terrorist, Rainbow, and Border-Hopping. So don’t come at us will this insensitivity stuff. We’re equal-opportunity up here in the Belly Room.
WE HAVE A NEW INSTAGRAM! That’s right the last one was dreadfully under-updated and you all deserve more. Just search “verbalboxing” in IG for pics that I don’t pick for the Battle posts. Yes, I started this article at 6:45 AM. Yes, my phone is constantly dying. So follow this account. Tell your friends. I know a lot of the readers personally and I will be applying guilt stares all night tonight.
Who are the judges? Who is Battling? Find out next!
Let’s welcome back Roy Wood Jr.! Roy is a super nice guy. Always funny. Always has a hot sports take on Twitter. You can check out his album “Things I Think, I Think” on iTunes. He WAS on Sullivan and Son. But the people spoke and it has gone the way of the dodo. If the dodo couldn’t get more than 2 millions viewers a week after 3 seasons.
Ooh I’m excited for this. Brody is absolutely hilarious. He pitched for Arizona. Or State. Ask him. He will tell you. Big proponent of positivity which this writer very much agrees with. One time I saw him predict where three different audience members were visiting from. One time I him hammer a monster drum solo on two shitty chairs. One time I saw him wear shorts on stage. Dude has range. He had a show called “Enjoy It!” but I don’t think anyone did because it went #dodo as well. Still waiting on the Battle between you and Don, Brodes.
Holy Opposite Olsens, Batman! The Sklars are back! I didn’t get to preview them because I was Battling so I’m glad they made it back around. One of em destroyed me after a dud. #lesigh. These two are up there with Branum as the best judges. Super funny but also insightful with every answer. Never a shoehorned joke. And genuinely down to be there! Check out their web site for all their info. They have a great new special called “What Are We Talking About” on iTunes and their pod “Sklarbro Country” is a good listen as well. I don’t really have a zing for them because they are so great. They have a lot of canceled shows too. #dodo
Alright..finally to these previews bruh.
Our first undercard has Jacob Bunney (0-0, UR) versus Brendan Cooney (0-0, UR)!
We only roast the ones we love. Brendan and Jacob have been friends for a long time(unconfirmed). They host an open mic together called “Bunney Ranch” on Thursdays at Karma Lounge. Great mic because Brendan and Jacob are cool dudes and Karma is a great little comedy bar. Brendan is a very funny dude and has Jacob beat by about 24K Twitter followers so I’ll pick him. But look at Jason’s dick game. You don’t just post that on soc media unless your swag on 100 or you bought half-sized cucumbers that day.
Undercard #2 has Olivia Grace (1-0, 58) taking on newb Tom Goss (0-0, UR)!
Does Orange County just have mad beef? No other US region has had as many Battles as the OC. See what happens when a generation grows up on fake drama such as Laguna Beach and the like? For shame. Tom has a
huge great challenge in Olivia. She impressed us all in taking down Matt Cole (0-1, 74) and the Girl v. Guy record stands at 13-3. I’m picking Olivia.
Our Main Event pits Eric Oligny (1-0, 95) against Sina Amendson (2-2, 32)!
I honestly don’t know why The Committee has Eric ranked 95. He’s a nice dude. Jamar (2-2, 19) said his victory over Cody Morely (2-3, 43) way back when was legit. Sina has been a friend for a long time. Funny guy. I might have only seen him lose, however. I’m gonna pick Eric in the first ever Upset Spesh. #branding
I am 24-15 so far in picks. Yea, I’m the only one keeping track. Wanna fight about it? Thanks as usual for reading and coming to the show. Follow us on IG, tweet us @roastbattle or email [email protected] for questions/concerns/other stuff.
