- Give it up for the cast from Amistad just stopping by.

- Oh, come on!

(audience clapping)

- Thanks, Wave.

(laughing)

- I gotta say, I love The Wave.

You're like one scared white guy

away from a Bernie Sanders rally, I like that.

- People are coming up to us and they're like, "What, like,

"who are you guys?"

- We've been know as America's favorite boy band.

- Yeah.

- Yeah.

(laughing)

- So not everybody can battle, it would take all night,

so people just started sitting around the room and heckling.

And, these guys just started jumping in,

and being part of the battle.

(dance music)

- That nigga look like he bite cans for a living.

(audience laughing)

- They're like cartoon characters, they don't even talk.

They just run around and sort of improvise

different little bits inbetween the roast jokes.

- I was excited when I heard Joe did drag

until I realized it wasn't behind a pickup truck.

(audience clapping)

- I feel like we're kind of the voice of the audience.

When a joke hits really hard, we reward the comedian

with something physicalor just goin crazy,

a turn up, yeah exactly.

- With a turn up.

- Would you like a wave smash?

- Oh yeah, they smashed already.

(audience laughing)

- That's actually my pussy dust.

- We heighten any jokethat hits hard, and then

(laughing)

when a joke bombs, we feel what the audience is feeling.

- What was that Wave?

- The Wave's one of my favorites just

because they're that medium, so it's like, they're like,

"Oh, that joke was wack," and then the wave will just

come out and do something absolutely outrageous,

and everyone will laugh, and it almost resets the room.

(audience cheering)

- I don't think we everleft a show going, like,

"that sucked," I don't think anyone ever said that.

- Yeah, yeah, yeah.

- It's impossible.

(audience laughing)
