About

Inspired by the the line-crossing energy of comedy roasts, The Time Machine Roast hurls its hilarious flaming arrows at history. Nationally touring comedians get into character & costume for the meanest, funniest, most historically accurate jokes you've ever heard.

Taking a critical modern look at the legacy of monumental historical figures & roasting their hypocrisies, mistakes (and of course, their outfits), The Time Machine Roast sets its sights on Hall of Fames & Mount Rushmores in uproarious fashion. From emperors to inventors, from artists to entrepreneurs, no reputation is safe!
