What’s Worth Watching: Jeff Ross Takes Down Criminals In a New Special
Jeff Ross Roasts Criminals: Live at Brazos County Jail (Saturday, June 13, 11/10c, Comedy Central)
Jeff Ross must be a pretty big Orange is the New Black fan. For his latest stand-up special, the comedian known for barbs on the Comedy Central celebrity roasts is heading behind bars to entertain inmates.
On Jeff Ross Roasts Criminals, Ross visits the Brazos County Jail in Bryan, Texas to deliver some laughs—and a dose of humility—to the jumpsuit-clad audience. Ross spent three days at the facility, meeting inmates and learning how life inside works. That means the tailored set will be particularly poignant for them, touching on topics they’re all too familiar with, such as solitary confinement and the death penalty. But of course, Ross will also breakout his popular roasting style, meaning a few lucky (or not so lucky) inmates will be getting a taste of his poison.
