Verbal Violence

Reilly Smith • Jul 27 2017

Revenge is best served savagely cold and utterly hilarious.

If you've never been to a Roast Battle, let me paint the scene: two comedians with a beef study each other inside-out. Eventually, they both grab a mic to battle it out in a war of words. This tit-for-tat, no holds barred verbal violence in front of a live audience is the cutting edge of underground comedy.

It's a privilege to give you a sneak peek into this rising scene.

Jay Light v Kevin McNamara

Jay Light is one of the brightest young comics in Los Angeles. He's competed on the Comedy Central edition of Roast Battle, and he's opened for the likes of Theo Von, Dana Carvey and Dave Chappelle. And Kevin McNamara hasn't been seen at The Comedy Store since Jay assaulted him.

Available now at lbry://light-versus-mcnamara, the battle also features the legendary Jeff Ross, Tony Hinchcliffe and Comedy Central's Roast Battle season one champion Mike Lawrence as the three judges.
