Mar 11, 2023

11:00pm – 12:30am CT

Brian Moses returns to the festival with The Hateful Eight: Roast Battle’s Tournament of Champions. Since its inception at the world-famous Comedy Store, Roast Battle has spent a decade spreading the art of insult comedy, crowning the best trash talkers in cities all across the country. Moses assembles a first-ever meeting of champions from every region of America to compete in a three-day battle of wits… until one is crowned best roast battler in the country.

In Round One, the top 8 roast battlers from around the country will compete to see who advances to Round Two on Sunday night.
