ABOUT ROAST BEEF
Roast Beef is a comedy roast meets rap battle competition featuring some of L.A. most popular and talented comics.
Each shows features 16 comedians separated into 4 regions, rap roasting each other in a bracket-style tournament, round-by- round until only one competitor is left standing. Two celebrity judges and audience reaction decide the winner of each battle.
For the 1st round, performers know in advance their opponent, region, and hip-hop instrumental they'll be rap battling to so that they can adequately prepare roast material. If they advance, any of the beats in the DJ's arsenal could be the next track they battle to.
There have been six Roast Beef competitions hosted at The Virgil, with the competition winners being Sean Sarbaz, Kevin Anderson, Joe Hanson, Ron Bush and Perry Kurtz twice.
