News: Roast Battle UK Returns

Host Jimmy Carr and judge Katherine Ryan are to return for the second series of the hit stand-up roast show Roast Battle. The five new episodes will continue to involve a mix of top comedians going head to head in an attempt to ‘take down’ their opponent. Each episode will culminate in one comedian being crowned the winner by the unforgiving judging panel. The series will air later this autumn on Comedy Central UK. 

The first series, which also featured Russell Brand on the judging panel, proved a programming hit for the channel, smashing all previous ratings records and becoming Comedy Central’s highest-rated UK commission in its history. Roast Battle UK underlines Comedy Central UK’s ongoing push to diversify its British comedy offering and increase the volume of non-scripted comedy it broadcasts, all of which has helped drive the channel to its current position as the #3 entertainment channel.  

 “We can’t wait to get started on the second series of Roast Battle UK and are thrilled that Jimmy and Katherine will be back at the helm of one of the most standout stand-up shows on TV today.” Louise Holmes, Vice President, General Manager, Comedy Central UK commented. “The British version became an overnight hit and audiences can prepare themselves for plenty more laughs and gasps as we let comedians loose on each other in a no holds barred round two.”
