Roast Battle Edinburgh

The show that turns smack talk into an art form!

Roast Battle UK puts two comedians head-to-head in a battle of wit and put-downs. Each comic has 5 jokes to 'roast' their opponent. The opponent can respond with an off the cuff rebuttal. Ultimately, the winner is decided by a guest panel of audacious judges. Past guest judges have included Ari Shaffir, Dan Soder or Darren Harriott.

"Undeniably, Roast Battle doesn’t fail to live up to its expectations, serving to showcase a no-holds-barred contest of comedic athleticism, brazen putdowns and lightning-fast comebacks." ★★★★★ Broadyway Baby

The first Roast Battle started in the Belly Room at The Comedy Store LA in 2013. Since then, the Roast Battle format has been taking the world by storm, with independent leagues starting in places like London, Edinburgh, Barcelona, Tokyo, Berlin or Dublin. Roast Battle Edinburgh started in 2018 in the same room that it takes place today - Maggie’s Front Room at the Three Sisters.
