NEW YORK, July 25, 2012 -- The Infamous "Roastmaster General," Jeff Ross, is armed and ready to take aim at the week's hottest topics in the new Comedy Central weekly half-hour series, "The Burn with Jeff Ross," premiering on Tuesday, August 14 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT. To get warmed up for "The Burn," Jeff Ross took his roast on the road to film the one-hour stand-up special "Jeff Ross Roasts America," premiering on Comedy Central on Saturday, August 11 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT.

"The Burn with Jeff Ross" picks up where the Roasts leave off: Ross and a panel of guest comedians will skewer the week's pop culture topics in-studio, and hit the streets on the "Roaster Coaster" to take aim at "Public Enemies" such as meter maids, the paparazzi, and those things in life that just need to be taken down a notch. With other segments including "Roasting the Week," a no-holds-barred look at the week's hot topics; "Friendly Fire," in which Ross knocks on celebrity front doors, camera in tow; and "Too Soon," featuring commentary on the (extremely) recently departed, Ross continues to earn the title of "Meanest Man in Comedy," bestowed on him by New York Magazine.

"The Burn with Jeff Ross" is executive produced by Ross, Mike Gibbons, Chris McGuire and Tagline Television's Willie Mercer and Amy Zvi; and directed by Jay Karas. Jim Sharp and Gary Mann are the Executives in Charge of Production for Comedy Central.

In the one-hour stand-up special, "Jeff Ross Roasts America," Ross visits several cities across the country, roasting the towns and the residents in volunteer-only speed roasts. Roasting his way through cities including Seattle, Toronto, Las Vegas, Miami and Madison, Ross roasts a statue of Abe Lincoln in Washington D.C., gets roasted by John Rich in Nashville, and in Minneapolis, brings an old friend onstage to tell a very intimate story the way only Jeff Ross can.

"Jeff Ross Roasts America" is executive produced by Ross, Amy Zvi, and Jay Karas; and directed by Karas. Jonas Larsen and Toni Magon are the Executives in Charge of Production for Comedy Central.

Leading up to the on-air premiere, "The Burn with Jeff Ross" Web site will feature preview clips, episode highlights and digital exclusives, as well as a daily blog. Fans of the show will also be able to interact with Ross via Comedy Central social media accounts and an on-site Twitter module. Fans also can follow Ross on Twitter @realjeffreyross. Each episode of "The Burn with Jeff Ross" will be available the day after air in HD on iTunes, Xbox, Sony PlayStation, Amazon and Vudu and in SD on Samsung.

Comedy Central Home Entertainment's "Jeff Roast Roasts America" DVD will be released exclusively through Amazon on Tuesday, August 14. The uncensored DVD will also include bonus material of the complete uncut audience speed roasts from the Minneapolis, Seattle, and Nashville shows. Leading up to the on-air premiere of "Jeff Roast Roasts America," the Comedy Central Stand-Up Web site will feature preview clips from the special as well as exclusive content from the DVD.

Having headlined the last nine Comedy Central Roasts, Ross has roasted the likes of Charlie Sheen, Joan Rivers, Pamela Anderson, David Hasselhoff, and Donald Trump. As a stand-up comic, Ross has appeared on dozens of TV shows including "The Late Show with David Letterman," "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," "Jimmy Kimmel Live!," "Conan," "Last Call with Carson Daly," "The View," and "Real Time with Bill Maher." He also continues to perform regularly for American men and women in uniform stationed all over the world.

In film, Ross has appeared in the Farrelly Brothers' "Stuck on You," Paul Weitz's "American Dreamz," and the critically acclaimed comedy "The Aristocrats." Ross has co-written a film with producer Art Linson, "The Comedian," which will go into production this year, starring Robert De Niro and Kristen Wiig, and directed by Sean Penn. Ross' directorial debut, "Patriot Act: A Jeffrey Ross Home Movie," nabbed the best feature film award at the Montreal Comedy Festival. Ross' first book, "I Only Roast the Ones I Love: Busting Balls without Burning Bridges," is now available in paperback from Simon Spotlight Entertainment, a division of Simon & Schuster.
