Fresh off his roast of David Hasselhoff, Jeffrey Ross is coming to Tampa




Calling Jeffrey Ross the meanest man in comedy is unfair. Sure, he's the undisputed king of the celebrity roast, and he dished out some pretty good lines during Sunday night's Comedy Central Roast of David Hasselhoff.

But we had an opportunity to interview Ross a couple of years ago (click here to read it), and found him to be a thoroughly pleasant, thoughtful, even soft-spoken man. That outrageous figure you see above, in Jockeys and a leather coat? That's not the Jeffrey we met. (As far as you know.)

So we're pleased to see that the Roastmaster General is coming back to Tampa for a weekend at the Improv in Ybor City. Ross is performing Oct. 8-10 in Tampa; tickets are just $20. Show up early, and maybe Ross will insult YOU. It's his way of telling you he loves you.
