Jeffrey Ross a.k.a. the "Roastmaster General's" many show stopping performances at celebrity roasts honoring America's favorite stars such as William Shatner, Hugh Hefner, Donald Trump, Pamela Anderson and Emmet Smith inspired New York Magazine to crown him "The Meanest Man in Comedy".
Jeff's directorial debut, "Patriot Act: A Jeffrey Ross Home Movie" screened at many top festivals including South by Southwest, the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival, The Hampton's Film Festival, and even won Best Picture at the Montreal Comedy Festival. Jeff's "home movie" captures his life changing experience entertaining U.S. troops stationed around Iraq during the early days of the U.S. Occupation. The New York Times reviewer declared Jeff, "...if not a hero, than someone who at least did his small part". The New York Post gave the film a perfect four out of four star review and declared it, "...the best documentary to emerge from the Iraq war so far". General Richard Meyers, Chairman of the Joint Chief of Staff said "Patriot Act" was... "...funny and poignant -- every American should see it". "Patriot Act: A Jeffrey Ross Home Movie" aired on Showtime in honor of Memorial Day and is now available on DVD.
