Jeff Ross

Jeff Ross is a comedian, writer, actor, director, and producer known as “The Roastmaster General.”

As a regular on the COMEDY CENTRAL ROASTS, Jeff has roasted some of the industry’s most famous people including Alec Baldwin, Bruce Willis, Justin Bieber, Roseanne Barr, Joan Rivers, Charlie Sheen, and Donald Trump.

His television projects include ROAST BATTLE for Comedy Central, a series which Ross produced and starred for three seasons. ROAST BATTLE has become an international phenomenon with markets including England, Germany, Canada and South Africa producing their own versions. Ross also starred in the 3-episode comedy special BUMPING MICS with Dave Attell for Netflix. This rapid-fire, two-man stand up series has a joke-per-minute ratio and continues to tour the country as a live show. Ross also produced and starred in six episodes of HISTORICAL ROASTS for Netflix, a series which roasted some of the most important figures in history including Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King, and Cleopatra.

On the acting front, credits include series arcs on SNEAKY PETE (Amazon), and KINGDOM (DirecTV), and guest-starring roles on DR. KEN (ABC), DRUNK HISTORY (Comedy Central), GRANDFATHERED (Fox), THE SIMPSONS (Fox) and FAMILY GUY (Fox). Recent feature film credits include THE EMOJI MOVIE, FLOCK OF DUDES and WEDDING RINGER starring Kevin Hart. Jeff has also lent his voice to many animated shows including playing “Hook Foot” on Disney’s RAPUNZEL’S TANGLED ADVENTURES. Other animated work includes MR. PEABODY AND SHERMAN, FUTURE WORM, PENN ZERO PART TIME HERO and THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF MICKEY MOUSE.

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 continues to tour the country doing stand-up and bringing his own brand of speed- roasting to audiences both stateside and abroad.
