Ross is the current New York Friars’ Roastmaster General and was the main roaster on the Comedy Central Roasts for the last nine years. From Pamela Anderson and David Hasselhoff to Joan Rivers and Donald Trump, hardly anyone escapes his sharp tongue, not even Charlie Sheen. He easily fills up auditoriums, because let’s face it, we all love to laugh at the expense of others.
“Detroit show was so much goddamn fun. Next stop Portland & Seattle. I hear there’s plenty of weed & coffee up there,” Ross tweeted.
Still true to his stand-up roots, Ross combines it with the roast and assures us they coexist in perfect harmony. With twenty cities to go, the tour could possibly result in a new special.
“If you want to know what it’s like to be made fun of, here’s your chance. People always ask me how they can come to a roast, so I figured this was the next best thing. Sort of a traveling roast,” said Ross in his recent interview.
If you’ve ever wanted to catch his act in person, now’s your chance. Below is the list of cities Ross will visit, see if he is coming to your neck of the woods:
