The one and only "King of Roasting" Jeff Ross will be releasing his new one-hour special Jeff Ross Roasts America on DVD exclusively on Amazon.com starting August 14 via Comedy Central Home Entertainment. A few days before the DVD release, Jeff Ross Roasts America will air on Comedy Central on Saturday, August 11 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT.
Jeff Ross Roasts America features Ross traveling across the country to get residents from each town to volunteer in special "speed roasts." In addition to pleasantly insulting his way through cities including Seattle, Toronto, Las Vegas, Miami and Madison, Ross roasts a statue of Abe Lincoln in Washington D.C., gets ripped a new one by John Rich in Nashville, and brings an old friend onstage in Minneapolis to tell a very intimate story the way only Jeff Ross can. The uncensored DVD will include the one-hour special and uncut audience speed roasts from the Minneapolis, Seattle, and Nashville shows.
In addition to the TV special and its complementary DVD, Ross will also be premiering a new weekly half-hour series, The Burn with Jeff Ross, on Tuesday, August 14 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT on Comedy Central. The Burn with Jeff Ross will feature the comedian and a panel of in-studio guests skewering the week's pop culture topics along with regular segments that exemplify the "Meanest Man in Comedy" title given to Ross by New York Magazine.
Ross has become a prominent part of Comedy Central's Roasts series, having publicly lampooned the likes of Charlie Sheen, Joan Rivers, Pamela Anderson, David Hasselhoff and Donald Trump. The comedian will take aim next at Roseanne Barr during her Comedy Central Roast, which airs at 10 p.m. ET/PT on August 12. Ross has also appeared on TV shows such as The Late Show with David Letterman, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Conan and Real Time with Bill Maher.
