We ain't gonna lie. Whenever we tune into each year's edition of Comedy Central's series of annual televised roasts, it's usually just to see comedian Jeffrey Ross. Whether it was in 2006 when he blasted William Shatner or Flavor Flav in 2007, the Jersey-born insult comic typically gets in the best quips and zingers, usually in vile and off-color fashion (the Bea Arthur jokes are the best). Although he won't be roasting any celebs, Ross will bring his vicious and snarky punchlines to the Tempe Improv for four nights of fun.
