From door guy at The Comedy Store to winner of Roast Battle II, congrats to Frank Castillo.
Castillo prevailed over Matthew Broussard in the live finale broadcast Sunday night on Comedy Central from the old House of Blues venue — reconfigured into a battle arena for Jeff Ross Presents Roast Battle — in a 3-1 decision from celebrity judges T.J. Miller, Jason Sudeikis, Patton Oswalt and Natasha Leggero.
Much was made of Castillo’s Mexican heritage (thanks Trump), although it certainly helped that Broussard botched one of his jokes. Castillo (who credits himself as a co-producer of the weekly Roast Battles at The Comedy Store) also was one of several of the battlers who earned their first TV credit via this past week’s competition.
