This seems as good a time as any to share this picture again. Jim Carey stopped by recently and it was legendary. He was self-deprecating. He deprecated on everyone else. He was back at home and it remains one of the best shows to date. Of course, horseshoe Jay Light (7-3, 4) was victorious that night in a fantastic battle that had repercussions no one could have foreseen. Did you miss it? Too lazy to check the archive? Well then check the pod! Moses, Coach Tea and the gang talk about the show and give some context to the featured battles on the show. Just another great way to immerse yourself in roast culture and use it to prep yourself for your own battle. I keep promising bigger things to come and I swear they are! Just taking a little time. Satiate your Roast Battle lust for now with the pod, the archive, hell, go like the Facebook page! I love you. I seriously do. If I’ve made fun of you on these pages or you disagree with what I’ve written, by all means let me know. It’s unlikely to change anything but I enjoy interacting with people! Don’t forget about Living Extracts! Great products for cheap. Follow them on IG and Twitter!
Once again, the Roastmaster takes a break from his busy Oddball schedule to help regulate Roast Battle. Great pic! Love the jacket. He looks like the lovechild between Hugh Hefner and a heifer. This is a pic from the Beiber Roast. If you missed it, watch here! Jeff always brings the best analysis and often brings the house down with a well-timed burn. Also, don’t forget about his special where he roasts criminials!
Excited to welcome back Julian McCullough to the judge’s table! Julian is one of my favorite comics to watch and has a new show coming out with Roast Battle fav, Annie Lederman (1-0-1, 8), called “We Have Issues”. Look for it on the E! network. I believe one of our Main Event battlers was also tasked with writing for the show and that should just add to the chemistry for the show.
Let’s give a hearty welcome to first time judge, Jared Logan! Jared joins us all the way from New York by way of West Virginia. His bio on his web site says he was picked on in school and that corduroy blazer all but confirms that. He’s a writer for the Late Late Show with James Corden and you can check out some of his work on that show here. He’s got an album called “My Brave Battle” that you can get here!
The first undercard has Dan Nolan (2-0, 31) taking on Eric Carter (0-1, 130)!
One day all Facebook default pictures will be a black and white one in the Comedy Store. Last time we saw Eric Carter, he and Haiti were doing their best to secure a Worst of the Year nomination. I expect Eric to be a little better prepared but I think Dan gets the win here. Dan’s last appearance was the Dan Bowl against Dan Lewis Fawcett (1-1, 87) and although he came out on top, it wasn’t his strongest showing. Roast Battle sometimes comes down to who has more to pick on. Eric’s southern background and remedial drawl tip the scales in Dan’s favor.
Our only other undercard pits Paul Elia (0-1, 131) against Omar Nava (0-0, UR)!
Really excited for this battle. These two are good friends of mine and funny comedians. Paul has the energy and the act-outs to capture a battle crowd but his last effort left us wanting more a punchline. Omar! Love Omar. And not just because we look related. Let’s wish him a happy birthday! Let’s also check out his show, Night Owl Comedy, right before the battle. The lineup is packed with very funny comedians and the energy will be hot. Check the deets here! It should set a good tone for the battles that will follow it. These things may or may not have a factor in crowd support but I would have picked Omar either way. Hbd!
And in our Main Event, TV credits collide with Mike Lawrence (2-0-1, 3HR) clashing with Guy Branum (2-0, 4HR)!
Whoa…top five headliner matchup? Yes, please. Mike swoops in just before he returns to New York. Mike could be the first Roast Battle Hall of Famer. Whether judging or battling or on the comedy show before the battles, he’s always funny and no one is safe. When he battled Dan St. Germain (0-2, 18), Guy judged and the three of them stole the show with traded barbs. I wouldn’t doubt if exchange planted the seed for this matchup. Guy Branum is a force in his own. His well-written jokes burn extra long when coupled with his trademark delivery, one of dismissive sass. These two are some of the funniest around and Headliner Main Events don’t happen often so make sure you’re here early. Also, both of these guys have hilarious comedy albums that you can check here and here. Who wins? I think Mike takes it in a very close match Guy is hilarious and cutting but I’ve seen too many people try and fail to beat Mike.
I am 52-34 in picks. Yea, I’m the only one keeping track. Wanna fight about it? Thanks as usual for reading and coming to the show. Listen to the podcast! Keep with the ranks! Headliner ranks too!
