Comedy fans should steel themselves for the ultimate comedy battle as Comedy Central (DStv channel 122) takes to the ring for the finale of Comedy Central Roast Battle.
The culmination of months of scorching jokes, barbed insults and sizzling one-liners, the Grand Finale of Comedy Central’s Roast Battle will be recorded in front of a live audience at Parker’s Comedy & Jive, Montecasino, on Thursday, November 24. ‘Roast Battle’ will premiere exclusively on Comedy Central (DStv channel 122) every Monday, from January 16, 2017, at 21:00 CAT.

Weighing in, with their eyes on the prize are six of South Africa’s top comedians including Mark Banks, Donovan Goliath, Dillan Oliphant, Thabiso Mhlongo, Richelieu Beaunoir & Dave Levinsohn – prepared to fight to the death armed with killer insults, deadly one-liners and wounding witticisms in a bid to be crowned the ultimate Roast Battle champion.
Going head-to-head for the ultimate champion’s belt, Mark Banks will battle Donovan Goliath, Dillan Oliphant combat Thabiso Mhlongo, and Richelieu Beaunoir will attempt to take down Dave Levinsohn in the first round.
