My Summer Lair Chapter #154: What If You Roasted Cities Instead Of Humans?
We’re all used to the roasts of celebrities like Justin Bieber and Alec Baldwin.
But…what if you roasted cities instead? Helium Comedy Club proudly presents their Coast to Coast Roast aka CCR.
Kicking off on May 7th across 8 nights you can expect 16 episodes. 48 comedians from 24 markets will represent their respective cities and roast one another’s hometowns. This is gonna burn.
Participating cities arranged by division include: East Coast (Atlanta, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, DC, Miami, New York City), South/Central (Austin, Dallas, Houston, Indianapolis, Nashville, St. Louis), Great Lakes (Buffalo, Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, Minneapolis, Toronto), West Coast (Denver, Los Angeles, Portland, Seattle, Phoenix, San Francisco).
Tickets for the roast and more information can be purchased at Helium Presents and the net proceeds are going to Mental Health America. That’s cool and so is this.
Put your hands together for My Summer Lair’s next guest: representing Philadelphia in the Coast to Coast Roast is Pat Barker. You’ve seen Pat Barker on Jeff Ross Presents Roast Battle. More than a stand up comic Pat’s written for Any Given Wednesday With Bill Simmons on HBO and The Comedy Central Roast of Alec Baldwin. His debut album Nice Jokes came out in 2014. Originally from Philadelphia, he now resides in LA. Dude went all Hollywood. Welcome, Pat Barker to the mic.
