This is something new. Comedian and Roastmaster General Jeff Ross takes his infamous bracket-style insult-comedy to Brazos County Jail, where he has our hearts in our throats watching him speed-roast a group of both male and female inmates.
Jokes aside, it’s a sobering firsthand experience to witness.
For three days he walks with them – from playing basketball in the yard, spending time in solitary himself, Ross gets up close and personal with the inmates, hears their stories, performs some standup and touches on the topics surrounding incarceration in the U.S. such as race, the use of solitary confinement and the death penalty.
Jeff Ross Roasts Criminals: Live at Brazos County Jail shows Jeff Ross giving the most dangerous – and enlightening – roast of his life from behind the walls of the Brazos County Jail in Bryan, Texas.
