NEW YORK, May 21, 2015 - America's Roastmaster General himself, Jeff Ross, gives the most dangerous - and enlightening - roast of his life from behind the walls of the Brazos County Jail in Bryan, Texas.

"Jeff Ross Roasts Criminals: Live at Brazos County Jail" is a compelling, funny, unfiltered look at life in an orange jumpsuit. In this special, Ross touches on the controversial topics surrounding incarceration in America such as race, the use of solitary confinement and the death penalty. Ross was allowed to spend three days at the Brazos County Jail and experienced firsthand how inmates survive behind bars. From playing basketball in the yard to spending time in solitary himself, Ross gets up close and personal with the inmates, hears their stories, performs a stand-up show for them and even roasts a group of both male and female inmates. Jeff also speaks with numerous detention officers at the facility, learns about their inmate behavior management philosophy and sees firsthand how challenging their jobs can be.

Leading up to the on-air premiere, Comedy Central Stand-Up will feature preview clips from the special and fans can follow Ross on Twitter at @realjeffreyross.
