Ross keeps true to his tittle of roastmaster general on Comedy Central’s “Roast of James Franco” alongside other comedian heavy hitters Sarah Silverman, Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, Bill Hader and Andy Samberg.
His other performances at celebrity roasts honoring mega stars like Joan Rivers, Hugh Hefner, Pamela Anderson, Jerry Stiller, Drew Carey, Shaquille O’Neal, David Hasselhoff, Charlie Sheen and Donald Trump has crowned him as a “One-Man Verbal Assault Unit.” Ross also wrapped up the Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festivals with Dave Chappelle and the Flight of the Conchords that toured across America.
Jeff’s own Comedy Central TV show, “The Burn,” finds him joined by a group of fellow comics to skewer the week’s hot topics and head into the field to take aim at public figures and current events. Ross, who has appeared in the last 10 Comedy Central Roasts, was also one of the executive producers of the show.
Jeff continues to perform regularly for American men and women in uniform stationed all over the world. As a filmmaker, Jeff’s directorial debut, “Patriot Act: A Jeffrey Ross Home Movie” nabbed the best feature film award at the Montreal Comedy Festival. The film is a funny and poignant documentary that captures Jeff’s life changing experience entertaining U.S. troops stationed around Iraq.
Show times are 8 p.m. Thursday and 8 and 10:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Tickets are $25.
