      EVENT DETAILS
      Roast'n : Insult Comedy Competition

      A roast is an event in which a specific individual, a guest of honor, is subjected to good-natured jokes at their expense intended to amuse the event's wider audience. This type of event was created as a mock counter to a toast. Such events are intended to honor a specific individual in a unique way. In addition to jokes and insult comedy, such events may also involve genuine praise and tributes. The implication is that the roastee is able to take the jokes in good humor and not as serious criticism or insult, and it is seen by some as a great honor to be roasted. The individual is surrounded by friends, fans, and well-wishers, who can receive some of the same treatment as well during the course of the evening. The party and presentation itself are both referred to as a "roast." The host of the event is called the "roastmaster." Anyone who is honored in such a way is said to have been "roasted." Native Memphians are known for our unique home grown style of insult comedy called "Checking". Hypelife presents "Roast'N: Memphis Style Insult Comedy Competition". This event will take amateurs and professional comedians give them a target picture, video and 60 seconds to come up with their best jokes to win a cash prize.
