PROMO: ‘Jeff Ross Presents—Roast Battle II’ Starts Jan. 26 on Comedy Central

For four nights. Prepare for battle. Prepare to laugh.

On Jan. 26, it’s time to go back into battle with Comedy Central’s Roast Battle II: War of the Words. Presented by the Roastmaster General himself, Jeff Ross, and hosted by Brian Moses, the four-night event will pit professional comedians against each other in a bracket-style comedy tournament. Each round of the battle will feature a one-on-one standoff between two top-notch comics and a panel of celebrity judges who will decide which comic dished out the best burns and should move on to the next round. The action all builds up to an epic LIVE finale Sunday, Jan. 29, at 10/9c, featuring the last four comics in a hard-hitting, hilarious final showdown.

This season’s slate of celebrity judges includes Whitney Cummings, Ken Jeong, Anthony Jeselnik, John Mayer, T.J. Miller, Patton Oswalt, Sarah Silverman, Jason Sudeikis, and the one-and-only Snoop Dogg.
