Saturday March 26th, The Fargo Theatre welcomes the Roast Master General Himself, Jeffrey Ross. Ross's blistering performances at celebrity roasts honoring mega stars like Joan Rivers, Hugh Hefner, Pamela Anderson, Donald Trump, Jerry Stiller, Drew Carey, Shaquille O'Neal, and most recently David Hasselhoff inspired New York Magazine to crown him "The Meanest Man in Comedy" - and MTV to introduce him as..."A One-Man Verbal Assault Unit". Adding laughter to insult, Jeff will be taping yet another roast in March 2011, putting Donald Trump in the hot seat.
As a stand-up comic, Jeff has appeared on dozens of TV shows including David Letterman, Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmel, Conan O'Brien, Carson Daly, ABC's “The View” and HBO's “Real Time with Bill Maher”. Jeff also 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. In addition to Jeff's recent dramatic turn on the hit CBS show, "C.S.I.", he has appeared on HBO's "Six Feet Under" and Showtime's "Weeds".
In film, he has appeared in the Farrelly Brothers' "Stuck on You", Paul Weitz's "American Dreamz" and critically acclaimed comedy, "The Aristocrats". Jeff has also written and produced celebrity roasts for Comedy Central and executive-produced and hosted his own highly rated re- imagination of the roasts, "MTV's Bash of Carson Daly", which featured Madonna, Eminem, Fifty Cent, Britney Spears, P. Diddy, Justin Timberlake, Jimmy Kimmel, Sarah Silverman, Jon Stewart, Kid Rock, and Nelly all "bashing" the guest of honor for charity. Jeff has also written for some cool shows including the MTV Video Music Awards for hosts Jamie Foxx and Chris Rock and the 2000 Academy Awards for host Billy Crystal. He's also helped write the first season of "The Man Show" on Comedy Central and consulted on "Who's Line is it Anyway" for ABC. Occasionally Jeff even punches up movies for big shots like The Farrelly Brothers and Dreamworks Animation. Check out his CD/DVD ’NO OFFENSE: LIVE FROM NEW JERSEY’ now available at amazon.com.
Ross’s first book, “I Only Roast the Ones I Love: Busting Balls without Burning Bridges” by Simon Spotlight Entertainment, a division of Simon & Schuster is now available in Paperback.
