Jeff Ross in Toronto - February 2012
After years of being the butt of jokes as a New Jersey Boy, Jeff Ross now gets the last laugh.  The Writer/Actor/Comedian has gained notoriety for his work on the Comedy Central Roasts, a series of televised broadcasts in which Celebrities are insulted by their Peers in the name of Humour.  Pamela Anderson, Donald Trump, William Shatner, Joan Rivers, Flavor Flav, Charlie Sheen and Davis Hasselhoff are Celebrities we love to hate. They all have been "roasted" by Ross at some point in his appearances on the Comedy Central Roasts between 2005 through 2011.  He currently is the New York Friars' Club Roast Master General, a title few can earn only after years of proven biting insults.

Just for Laughs presents Jeff Ross Roasts Canada, which has the Funnyman touring Canada for the next week including a stop-off at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Toronto on Saturday, February 11, 2012. Audience members can be expect to get picked-on and laugh at the expense of others as well.  What could be more fun than that?  Click here for more information.

Ross was up as early as 6:00 AM beginning a day of Press which saw a stop at KISS 92.5 for the Roz and Mocha Show, where he donned a pink Justin Bieber Hoodie.  He stopped by CBC for a taping of George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight too, stopping to pose for Photos and Autographs - playfully drawing smiley faces and hearts on his personalizations.  Ross might be a big old Meanie on TV, but for his Fans he's nothing but a Softie.
