In the tradition of the highly successful Roast franchise, fans will be treated to The Return Of The Roastmaster’s Invitational, a comedy competition featuring a no-holds-barred verbal boxing match in which comedians will compete head-to-head in a battle of wit and insults. Led by the Roastmaster General, Jeff Ross, and the referee/comedian Brian Moses, this Fight Club of comedy is presented in a bracket style competition where two comics in each round will face off, roast each other, and a winner is declared by a celebrity panel of judges.
Jeff Ross is a respected comedian, writer, director, and producer also known as “The Roastmaster General.”
Currently, his wildly popular live show Bumping Mics with Jeff Ross and Dave Attell is streaming on Netflix as a three-part comedy special event. The show, which was shot over three nights at the iconic Village Underground in New York, showcases the kinship that exists between these two veteran comics and highlights special guests including Amy Schumer, Bob Saget, Paul Rudd, and Michael Che.
As a regular on the Comedy Central Roasts, Jeff has roasted many stars including Justin Bieber, Roseanne Barr, Joan Rivers, Charlie Sheen, and The President of The United States, Donald Trump. Jeff's most recent Comedy Central Roast victim was none other than Bruce Willis.
These celebrity roasts have become a mainstay in popular culture and propelled roasting into the public eye. Building on their success, Jeff launched Jeff Ross Presents Roast Battlein 2016, a competition show in which comics go mic to mic in a battle of wits. Judged by some of the best comedy minds of our generation including Jimmy Kimmel, Kevin Hart, and Seth Rogen, Roast Battle, has introduced new stars and started a movement. Comedy Central has since taken the format international, producing versions of the show in Britain, Mexico and South Africa, with more international markets to come.
This past fall, Jeff took roasting back in time with the forthcoming Netflix show Historical Roasts where Abe Lincoln, Cleopatra, Freddie Mercury and many others took their turns being roasted. The series premiered in the spring of 2019.
