Roast Battle

June 21st-24th

We are proud to present Rumor’s first annual Roast Battle! We have 16 of Winnipeg’s strongest and most fierce comedians competing head to head against one another. Anything and everything is fair game in this battle of insults. The format will be one on one battles, pitting comedian against comedian. Each winner will advance to the next round until we crown a champion! Rules are simple: 5 jokes/insults per round. Comedians will take turns (one joke after the other). However only new material will be allowed. No hack / old jokes permitted. Judging will be based on Originality, degree of burn, and overall funniness of joke. Come see these comedians destroy one another on stage and hope that they have tough enough skin to take it.

Want to see it all? We’re selling packages to see all 5 different roast battle shows for only $35! ($71 VALUE). $35 includes a ticket to Wednesday, Thursday, Friday early, Friday late, AND Saturday’s final!

Dan Verville VS Chad Anderson

Ben Walker VS Jordan Welwood

Andy Noble VS Kate Schellenberg

Kenner VS Benji Rothman
