Boast Rattle
Boast Rattle
Boast Rattle: A roast-style competitive COMPLIMENT contest. Comedians go head to head seeing who can compliment the other better, and even a lucky crowd member gets to have their day improved with some on-the-spot boasting. With special guest judges and performances throughout.

Josh’s newest comedy album Physical Whisper debuted in March at #1 on the iTunes comedy charts (as well as #4 on the Billboard comedy chart) and stayed there for…well…longer than he expected, honestly.
