Night One’s Harshest Burns

The competition’s first batch of roasters came out swingin'.

If the first group of comics to enter the arena needed warm-up time, they didn’t show it Thursday night.

  1. 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.”

  2. THE “TIME FOR A MAKEOVER” BURN

    Yes, it was decency be damned from the get-go. Any family trauma was fair game, and any ill-advised style choice could lead a roaster to their doom. Anna Valenzuela wasted no time against her opponent Evan Williams.

  3. 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.

  4. THE “CREEPY F**K” BURN

    Roasting’s not a classy sport. It’s dirty – real dirty. So it’s no wonder Yamaneika Saunders got aggressive with Kurt Metzger in the final match of the night.

Oh, the humanity! What’s that? You’re thirsty for more blood? Well, you’ll just have to wait for Night Two. In the meantime, feel free to berate your roommate for practice.
