The BEATdown: A Comedy Rap Battle


Shockwave (Freestyle Love Supreme, The Electric Company) and Victor Varnado (Awkward Comedy Show, Tell Your Friends: The Concert Film!) host 5 of NYC's finest comedians and one audience volunteer in a freestyle rap face-off to the death. Six rounds of badass one-on-one rap battles decided by the audience that will make 8 Mile look like a movie from 10 years ago.
