NEW YORK, July 25, 2012 – The Infamous “Roastmaster General,” Jeff Ross, is armed and ready to take aim at the week’s hottest topics in the new COMEDY CENTRAL weekly half-hour series, “The Burn with Jeff Ross,” premiering on Tuesday, August 14 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT. To get warmed up for “The Burn,” Jeff Ross took his roast on the road to film the one-hour stand-up special “Jeff Ross Roasts America,” premiering on COMEDY CENTRAL on Saturday, August 11 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT.
“The Burn with Jeff Ross” picks up where the Roasts leave off: Ross and a panel of guest comedians will skewer the week’s pop culture topics in-studio, and hit the streets on the “Roaster Coaster” to take aim at “Public Enemies” such as meter maids, the paparazzi, and those things in life that just need to be taken down a notch. With other segments including “Roasting the Week,” a no-holds-barred look at the week’s hot topics; “Friendly Fire,” in which Ross knocks on celebrity front doors, camera in tow; and “Too Soon,” featuring commentary on the (extremely) recently departed, Ross continues to earn the title of “Meanest Man in Comedy,” bestowed on him by New York Magazine.
In the one-hour stand-up special, “Jeff Ross Roasts America,” Ross visits several cities across the country, roasting the towns and the residents in volunteer-only speed roasts. Roasting his way through cities including Seattle, Toronto, Las Vegas, Miami and Madison, Ross roasts a statue of Abe Lincoln in Washington D.C., gets roasted by John Rich in Nashville, and in Minneapolis, brings an old friend onstage to tell a very intimate story the way only Jeff Ross can.
