Jeff Ross is a respected comedian, writer, director, and producer also known as “The Roastmaster General.”
As a regular on the Comedy Central Roasts, Jeff has roasted many infamous stars including Justin Bieber, Roseanne Barr, Joan Rivers, Charlie Sheen, and The President of The United States Donald Trump. Jeff’s most recent Comedy Central Roast victim was none other than Bruce Willis.
These roasts have become a mainstay in popular culture and propelled roasting into the public eye. Building on their success, Jeff launched “Jeff Ross Presents Roast Battle” in 2016, a competition show in which comics go mic to mic in a battle of wits. Judged by some of the best comedy minds of our generation, including Jimmy Kimmel, Kevin Hart ,and Seth Rogen, Roast Battle has introduced new stars and started a movement. Comedy Central has since taken the format international, producing versions of the show in Britain and South Africa, while homegrown “Roast Battles” continue to pop up at comedy clubs all across the world. Season 3 of Roast Battle is currently airing on Comedy Central.
Jeff’s most recent comedy specials turn roasting into social commentary. With Jeff Ross Roasts Criminals, Jeff Ross Roasts Cops, and Jeff Ross Roasts The Border, Jeff has shed light on some of the more polarizing political issues of our time. These specials have taken him to a maximum security prison, the Boston Police Department, and both sides of the Mexican border. Jeff has immersed himself in these communities and then roasted them.
Jeff also regularly tours with the USO to perform for our troops overseas. Most recently Jeff traveled to Iraq with The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Joseph Dunford, and performed holiday shows for the soldiers stationed there.
These days you can see Jeff touring his “Bumping Mics” show with his comedy brother Dave Attell. Jeff and Dave are headliners in their own right, but when they combine forces it’s a whole other beast that can’t be tamed.
Recently, Jeff has also lent his voice to cartoons, with performances in Future Worm, Penn Zero: Part Time Hero, The Emoji Movie, and as series regular “Hook Foot” on the popular Disney show Tangled. Jeff is currently working on the upcoming season of Amazon’s Sneaky Pete where he plays a shifty political handler.
