Eventbrite - Battle Royale


Battle Royale is a sketch and standup battle to the comedy death. Boston's best indie sketch teams and local comics compete for a chance to showcase their talent. Battle Royale boasts a high energy, competitive format that's as much fun as it is epic.
Alternating between Sketch Battles and StandUp Battles, these 9PM Saturday performances shine the spotlight on scripted comedy. Come be part of a comedy Battle so intense, the only sure winner each night is the audience.

The StandUp Side
Battle Royale features stand ups from all levels. We take pride in showcasing comedians from late night TV, comedy festivals and touring acts as well as giving real up and coming comedians a chance to display their talents.  Battle Royale features four established comics showcasing their talents and a competition portion limited to beginning comedians (although not amateurish) who perform for a chance to earn more stage time.

$12, $10 with Student ID (NO TICKET FEES ONLINE!)

Battle Royale is produced by Emmy Serviss and Sean Clarke.
