Roast Battle: CANCELLED : Dunedin Fringe Festival

Roast Battle: CANCELLED

The only comedy show with nothing off limits.

ROAST BATTLE returns down south! As part of the 2020 Dunedin Fringe Festival, we're proud to bring you the second Dunedin Edition of the smash hit comedy show.

It's simple: a whole bunch of stand up comedians compete in a match of wit and insult. Two comedians take turns throwing their best roast jokes at each other, and a panel of pro judges decide who was the King of Sting or Queen of Mean. Each battle we eliminate a competitor and at the end of the night we crown the Hamilton's next Roast Battle champion. With no subject off limits, anything can happen.

Your roastmaster is Kid Roast himself Angel Jordan (@jordyce) and an incredible lineup of local and national comedians. Insults will fly, and not even the audience is safe, so thick skin is mandatory.

“This show was not for the light-hearted. Everyone and their dead Dad gets insulted in this fierce, no-holds-barred evening of roast.”

“Jordan instantly builds a rapport with the audience, throwing off hecklers and vying up the hype with the audience before each round.” – What’s Up NZ
