Ross, aka "The Roastmaster General"
Jeff's blistering performances at celebrity roasts honoring mega-stars like Hugh Hefner, Pamela Anderson, Donald Trump, Jerry Stiller, Drew Carey, and Shaquille O'Neal inspired New York Magazine to crown him "The Meanest Man in Comedy" -- and MTV to introduce him as..."a one-man verbal assault unit".
Jeff's directorial debut, "Patriot Act: A Jeffrey Ross Home Movie" recently 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.
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 -- including the Hurricane Katrina relief effort in New Orleans and Mississippi.
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 Farrelley Brothers' "Stuck on You", Paul Weitz's upcoming "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 Farrelley Brothers and DreamWorks Animation.
Jeff went to film school at Boston University. He currently divides his life between New York and L.A. because he thinks people are happier to see him when he's not around all the time. His lucky number is 13.
