Time to hassle the Hoff at the rudest, raunchiest television event of the year--The Comedy Central Roast of David Hasselhoff. From running in slo-mo on the beach to inspiring Germany with the power of cheesy pop--it's almost too easy.
The most fearless comedic performance I have ever seen
If you think Jeff Ross might tone it down to an audience of violent incarcerated felons, drug-dealers and neo-nazi skinheads, you would be, well, dead wrong. Ross is at his ballsiest, unrestrained, hilarious best performing at one of the toughest county jails in Texas. He gives new meaning to what it means to 'take no prisoners.'
It may sound clichéd to talk about the power of laughter to breakdown barriers, but for a couple hours at least, Ross shows that it can demolish a prison wall and bring together violent gang members, blacks, whites, latino's,jews, gentiles, men, women and even prison guards in a common,almost transcendent moment of laughter and forgetting.
The problem is that it you will never look Jeff Ross in the same way again. He will no longer be just the roastmaster insult-comic-in-chief.. His performance is not just funny. Its fearless, heartfelt, compassionate and at times, even wrenching. Yeah,you'll laugh like hell with the toothless convicts. And you might cry with them too.
