New York-based comic Jeffrey Ross was in familiar territory last night. He served as the "Roastmaster General" during 'The Comedy Central Roast of Donald Trump,' and eviscerated the egocentric, bizarrely-coiffed developer and several of his fellow comedians with a slew of rapid-fire insults. On April 2, he'll bring his live act to the Cabaret Theatre at Mohegan Sun for a pair of stand-up performances.
Ross has been a fixture on the New York comedy scene for years, but his roasting exploits and Comedy Central special "Jeffrey Ross: No Offense," have recently brought him national attention. Ross hasn't shied away from the limelight: he signed up for the 2008 season of 'Dancing With The Stars' but managed to scratch his cornea and was eliminated after only one universally-panned performance. Of course, the comedian took it in stride, and he's returned to what he does best: dismantling pop culture icons and trends while frequently poking fun at his own shortcomings. This show is not for the thin-skinned: Ross has been known to tear apart members of his audience, so be ready to laugh at yourself. Tickets are $30 here. 8 p.m. and 10:15 p.m.
