In this episode of Random Waves, we follow Karla, a local blogger and writer, as she steps out on stage for the first time to perform comedy... in a roast battle.
A comedy roast battle is a competition of wits. Two stand up comedians face each other and trade insults. The best comic advances to the next round. This is not a competition for the faint of heart -- the insults get nasty, and it's no holds barred.
So how is Karla, who has never performed comedy on stage before, going to do in the competition? Have a listen and find out.

This episode features the song "Are We Loose Yet" from Blue Dot Sessions.
This episode also features three homegrown comedians here in Connecticut. When Karla doesn't work as a chef, she writes, blogs, and podcasts at KarlyKingsley.com. Brian Barganier tours regularly with his stand up. You can find his comedy on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter. He's also one of the minds behind the utterly oddball TV show Public Access and Chill. Cliff Mula also performs stand up, and you can find him on Facebook and Instagram.
