Roast of Batman @ The Bard’s Town

Friday, July 27

The Bard’s Town
1801 Bardstown Road
$10; 10 p.m. & midnight

Since his introduction in May 1939, in issue No. 27 of “Detective Comics,” Batman has been shot, prodded, punched and poked in valiant efforts to keep the streets of Gotham safe. But on Friday, the crew over at The Young, Dumb, and Full of Comedy Show will find out if, after all of that, he can survive a roast. In the upstairs theater at The Bard’s Town, comedians like Lindsay Boling and Jake Reber, with Will Hardesty emceeing the festivities — along with comic-book staples like The Joker, Catwoman and Batman’s longtime houseboy Robin — will gather to pay long-earned disrespect to their friend (or foe, depending on what the case may be). And after the “loving” tributes this crew has offered to past roast subjects like Jesus, Abraham Lincoln and Hitler, Gotham will most certainly never look at Bruce and Bat in the same way again. —Brent Owen
