The Roast

The Roast is the finale of the open mic nights at the pub and is a 22-year-old tradition. Puppeteers are an eccentric bunch of talent; they can sing, dance, work puppets, act and be riotously entertaining all at the same time, due to their snarky wittiness that both scathes and entertains. When they turn this arsenal of wit towards each other, the results are fantastic. The script of the show is worked on from the very start of the conference, and the outcome is a mix of madness, wonder and all-around hilarity.
