Published 09.01.2009


Comedian Jeff Ross Comedian Jeff Ross, known as "The Roastmaster General," will perform at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 10, in the Community Arts Center as part of Homecoming 2009 (Oct. 8-11). Student tickets are only $10 and go on sale at the Student Activities Information Desk and the Arts Center Box Office at 10 a.m. Friday. Public tickets $15 for pit/purple/Sterling seats and $5 in the balcony also go on sale that morning. Ross is feared and revered for his appearances at celebrity roasts. In fact, making fun of people is a way of life for him. Called "an heir apparent to such old-school masters as Buddy Hackett and Rodney Dangerfield" by The New York Times, Ross has memorably and uproariously roasted many of America's favorite stars. He also stars in a popular Comedy Central stand-up DVD and CD, "Jeffrey Ross: No Offense Live From New Jersey," as well as an award-winning documentary he directed about his experience in entertaining U.S. troops in Iraq titled, "Patriot Act: A Jeffrey Ross Home Movie." Ross divides his time among New York City, Los Angeles and the road. For more information, visit the Arts Center online.
