Roast Battle. Image shows from L to R: Tom Allen, Suzi Ruffell
Some of the sharpest wits in British comedy go up against one another, with participants attempting to humorously 'take down' their opponent to win the 'battle'. It's Tom Allen v Suzi Ruffell and Phil Wang v Ed Gamble.

Preview clips


Suzi and Phil were the winners. The joke of the episode was declared as Phil Wang's "Ed's girlfriend is such a dog I tried to eat her".
