If the first group of comics to enter the arena needed warm-up time, they didn’t show it Thursday night.
THE “WHITE PRIVILEGE” BURN
Frank Castillo set the tone for the evening during his rumble against Jay Light with the kind of zing connoisseurs refer to as a “serious dis.”
THE “TIME FOR A MAKEOVER” BURN

THE “YOU AND YOUR MOM” BURN
Even the evening’s “non-winners” showed off some impressive chops. Leah Kayajanian got knocked out, but not before getting in a solid dig on Joe Dosch.
THE “CREEPY F**K” BURN
