Seth Rogen, Kevin Hart join Jeff Ross Roast Battle judges panel
Jeff Ross Presents Roast Battle just got a little bit bigger. The four-part Comedy Central special has padded its judge panel with another round of big-time jokesters, adding Judd Apatow, Whoopi Goldberg, Kevin Hart, and Seth Rogen.
The fresh crops joins an already loaded roster, sitting with the previously announced Anthony Jeselnik, Jimmy Kimmel, Sarah Silverman, and David Spade. “Roastmaster” Ross will lead the insult-slinging affair, which features a bracket of smart-mouthed wordsmiths going head-to-head in a Fight Club-style comedy tournament. Its celebrity jury determines the winner, while referee/comedian Brian Moses keeps the peace.
Jeff Ross Presents Roast Battle will be filmed live at L’Astral Theatre during Montreal’s Just For Laughs festival, airing in four one-hour episodes on July 28-31 at 10 p.m. ET on Comedy Central. The July 31 finale will broadcast live.
Comedians on the docket include Tom Ballard, Matthew Broussard, Jimmy Carr, Christi Chiello, Chris Cubas, Olivia Grace, Tony Hinchcliffe, Mike Lawrence, Ralphie May, Sam Morril, Mark Normand, Ms. Pat, Steve Rannazzisi, Earl Skakel, Sarah Tiana, and K. Trevor Wilson.
