Roast Mortem Cast

Dead men tell no tales. So we do it for them.

About the show

We've all been taught to venerate the dead. Where's the fun in that?! No one can take all their rotten secrets to the grave. Humans are just trash monsters that make mistakes, rub together and make more humans. So, let's grab some beers, bury inhibitions and dig up some dirt on history's most iconic departed.

    When he wasn't sucking that pen15 cigar, he was starting revolutions, executing defectors and egging on nuclear war. Now you know him as the guy on the t-shirts of angsty teens revolting against price hikes on their favorite latte. Che Guevara. We roast him... now!
