Jeff Ross has recruited some famous funny folks to help him determine a new Roastmaster on his Roast Battle.

Jimmy Kimmel, Sarah Silverman, David Spade, and Anthony Jeselnik will serve as judges for Jeff Ross Presents Roast Battle, Comedy Central announced on Wednesday.

The event is a Thunderdome-style comedy competition in which two hopefuls will throw cutting quips at each other while a panel of judges determines the winner. Ross will host the four-night special, which will air July 28–31 at 10 p.m. ET.

Among the 16 comedians competing in the tournament are Ralphie May, Mark Normand, and Steve Rannazzisi.
