Inspired by the gritty, competitive proving grounds of the comedy-club circuit, this stand-up series pits professional comedians against each other in one-on-one standoffs with a panel of celebrity judges deciding their competitive fate. Original material only, no physical contact, and every battle ends with a hug. Led by Ross and referee/comedian Brian Moses, Roast Battle first premiered on Comedy Central in July 2016.
Jeff Ross Presents Roast Battle is executive produced by Ross, Joel Gallen, Amy Zvi, Willie Mercer, Moses, Rell Battle, and Rick Austin. Jonas Larsen, Christian McLaughlin, Jordan Ellner and Ryan Moran are the Executives in Charge of Production for Comedy Central.
