Based on the bile spewed during tonight’s quarterfinals, the roasters who were previously eliminated may have been the lucky ones. Because if there’s one word that sums up Night Three, it is most certainly “DAMN.”
THE BODY-SHAMING BURN
Booking a TV appearance is a major accomplishment for a comic, but in the night’s first round, Joe Dosch did to Yamaneika Saunders’s credits what roasters do best: He took a nice thing and made it ugly.
THE “GET A RESTRAINING ORDER” BURN
Olivia Grace may not have won her match against Todd Barry, but she held her own against the seasoned comedy pro with burns like this one. It may have been brutal, but boy, did it go down smooth.
THE TREMENDOUS, TREMENDOUS BURN
Frank Castillo came into his match against Anna Valenzuela with a classic multi-tiered Trump dis in his back pocket. It was an attack so impressive, so brutal, so yuge that even Valenzuela had to give him props for it.
THE REQUISITE SEXUAL EUPHEMISM BURN
Did Alex Hooper win against Matthew Broussard? No. But did he get in a quality humdinger about his opponent’s inadequacy in the bedroom? You betcha. Plus, he gets points for being the weirdest competitor of the night by far.
