While he's known to many as the Roastmaster General, there's more to comedian Jeff Ross than just picking on famous people. When he';s not testing the bounds of his comedy by dressing up as Jerry Sandusky post-Penn State scandal or lampooning James Franco and Riff Raff, the insult comic has one of the sharpest tongues that spew acerbic wit at suspecting and unsuspecting onlookers. His show, The Burn with Jeff Ross, was an underrated gem that lasted two seasons, but won over a cult following for Ross' man on the street bits. When he's not getting laughs either on-stage or through his vibrant Twitter account, the New Jersey-native has appeared in a number of sitcoms, dramas, entertaining the troops and writing books. If you head out to see Ross, be careful because if you're not paying attention, you could be the next victim on the Roastmaster's hit list.
