Jeff Ross. The Roastmaster General. A One Man Verbal Assault Unit. Pizza Enthusiast.
Jeff can most recently be seen on Comedy Central on the hit show Roast Battle, which aired at the end of July. His new special, Jeff Ross Roasts Cops, aired September 10th on Comedy Central.
Jeff Ross is known to the world as the modern day Don Rickles. The King of roasting. Let’s face it, if there’s a roast and he’s not there, it’s not a real roast. Growing up in Newark, NJ he took the greatest weapon he had to fight his way out of there. His Mouth. Since then, Jeff has roasted anyone who would accept the challenge. From Criminals, to Soldiers, to Politicians, to Pop Icons.
He has no limits, even roasting criminals inside the walls of a maximum security county jail in Texas (check out Jeff Ross Roasts Criminals). Sure some comedians perform in jails, but no other comedian would have it in their right mind to immerse themselves inside a jail for three days, and then invite those same incarcerated people on stage with him to get roasted face-to-face. If he thought criminals were tough, Jeff even roasted Justin Bieber as part of the record breaking Comedy Central Roast, which Jeff also produced. Next Up Jeff takes on his most challenging roast ever: The Roast of the Boston police Dept, coming soon to Comedy Central.
Roasting is ingrained in Jeff’s life, and he helped bring The Friar’s Club Roasts to Comedy Central in 1998, with The Roast of Drew Carey. Since then they have roasted Donald Trump, Pamela Anderson, James Franco, Joan Rivers, Hugh Hefner, Charlie Sheen, and many more. It seems impossible to have one of these roasts without The Roastmaster himself on the dais.
Jeff has seen his share of television and film credits. Most recently he guest starred on “Dr. Ken” on ABC and “Grandfathered” on Fox. He also had an arc in Direct TV’s “Kingdom.” On the silver screen, he recently co-starred in “The Wedding Ringer” with Kevin Hart, and “Flock of Dudes” with Chris D’Elia.
