The Roast of the Disney Princesses

Once upon a time, in a land far away, these princesses wished upon a star and lived happily ever after… until now! Whiskey Bear Comedy brings you The Roast of the Disney Princesses, where comedians play some of your favorite fairy tale princesses to roast each other in an all out brawl to see who is the baddest babe.

This show was such a big hit in 2016, we brought it back for an encore! Please note this show is intended for an adult audience due to risque language and content.
