Comedians Justine Marino (Netflix, MTV, Comedy Central) and Heidi Heaslet (#Millenials, All Def Digital) host a monthly dance battle comedy show where some of today's top working comedians compete in 3 rounds of dance in the hopes of winning cool prizes like Justine's old Ma$e CD.  Think ‘Step Up’ meets ‘Roast Battle.’

The show also features a panel of judges including Justin Martindale (Comedy Central, E!) and a new guest comedian each month as well as a celebrity dance expert – past judges have included Lance Bass, Travis Wall, and Cyrus Glitch Spencer. And DJ'd by Coach Tea from Comedy Central's Roast Battle, this show is not to be missed! (get your Shazam out pre-show because Coach Tea knows what’s up).

Check it out at 7:30 pm the first Tuesday of the month in the Belly Room of The World Famous Comedy Store.
