Jeffrey Ross is one of the most versatile and well respected comics in the business today. Most known as the hilarious and dangerous host for Comedy Central's Roasts to Hugh Hefner, Jerry Stiller, Rob Reiner and Drew Carey as well as his love poems, Jeffrey will bring his own blend of love and danger to the night of October 1st.
Making his stand up debut on "The Late Show with David Letterman" in 1995, Jeffrey has gone on to make numerous appearances on "The Tonight Show Starring Jay Leno", "Last Call with Carson Daly", "Late Night with Conan O'Brien", HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher", "The Howard Stern Show", ABC's "The View" and he is a frequent guest and guest host on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live".,
During this time he has become Comedy Central's prodigal son as one of the first writers for "The Man Show", one of the first correspondents for "The Daily Show", two solo stand-up comedy specials on the network in addition to hosting and co-producing the last four celebrity roasts, the network's highest rated broadcasts.
Most recently he created, executive produced and hosted the first ever MTV Bash which featured appearances by Eminem, Britney Spears and Madonna. Jeffrey was also the head writer for the 2000 Academy Awards hosted by Billy Crystal, the 2001 MTV Music Awards hosted by Jamie Foxx, and the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards hosted by Chris Rock.
As an actor, Jeffrey's most recent film credits include roles in "Stuck on You" and "Along Came Polly" as well as guest starring roles "C.S.I." and HBO's "Six Feet Under".
Backstage Magazine called him "New York's Best Stand-Up" and New York Magazine jokingly crowned him "The Meanest Man in Comedy". He's really not that mean, just really funny.
