Roast Battle grew from a weekly mock-off in The Belly Room of The Comedy Store to a multi-season series on Comedy Central.
Boast Rattle, its friendlier parallel universe counterpart, now has grown from a monthly show in the basement of Union Hall in Brooklyn to a new monthly radio program on SiriusXM! The first episode debuted last night.
Hosted by comedian Kyle Ayers, and set in comedy clubs all over the country, each episode of Boast Rattle pits comedians against each other in a roast-style battle, but instead of insults, it will be a showdown of compliments, delivering alternating blows of the nicest order. Two rounds. One lucky crowd member who gets some on-the-spot boasting. One Champion of Charity, Master of Magnanimity.
The first episode was recorded at The Virgil in Los Angeles and features guest judge Greg Proops overseeing the following comedian matchups: Jack Robichaud vs.Ahmed Bharoocha, Sara Schafer vs. Adam Conover, and Ryan Singer vs. Chris Garcia.
Hear ’em here sampling it if you missed them on the radio:
A new episode of Boast Rattle will premiere on the last Wednesday of each month on SiriusXM’s Laugh USA, Ch. 98.
