You may not request a spot several weeks in advance of the night you'd like to perform. Anyone interested in performing on Open Mic night must send in an email request; there are no longer sign-ups the night of the show. If you are selected to do a spot, we will respond to your email.

All scheduled performers get 3 minutes on stage. Please stick to your time. Show order is random and determined by that evening's emcee. Be sure to watch the countdown clock! Respect the time, audience, and other comedians.
Please stay out of the staff's way as they are very busy. Stay clear of the aisles. Also, you should order from a server and tip them. It's the right thing to do and good karma.
Open Mic is used as a starting ground for many comics, as well as a place to practice new material for veteran comedians. Some jokes may kill, others may bomb, but it's always a good time. Be sure to support those appearing on stage; it's not as easy as you think! Sit down and watch the show from an empty seat in the showroom. You never know...you might learn something!

Most recently you can see Jeff on Netflix in “Bumping Mics” with Dave Attell. It is three episodes of rapid fire two man stand up. The joke per minute ratio, is off the rails. Jeff and Dave are headliners in their own right, but when they combine forces it's a whole other beast that can't be tamed.
Soon Jeff will be back on Netflix starring in a series called “Historical Roasts” where he hosts his dream roasts with some of the most famous people in history.
As a regular on the Comedy Central Roasts, Jeff has roasted many infamous stars including Bruce Willis, Justin Bieber, Roseanne Barr, Joan Rivers, Charlie Sheen, and The President of The United States Donald Trump.
These roasts have become a mainstay in popular culture and propelled roasting into the public eye. Building on their success, Jeff launched “Jeff Ross Presents Roast Battle” in 2016, a competition show in which comics go mic to mic in a battle of wits. Judged by some of the best comedy minds of our generation, including Jimmy Kimmel, Kevin Hart ,and Seth Rogen, Roast Battle has introduced new stars and started a movement.
Comedy Central has since taken the format international, producing versions of the show in Britain and South Africa, while homegrown “Roast Battles” continue to pop up at comedy clubs all across the world. Season 3 of Roast Battle will air on Comedy Central later this year.
Jeff's most recent comedy specials turn roasting into social commentary. With Jeff Ross Roasts Criminals, Jeff Ross Roasts Cops, and Jeff Ross Roasts The Border, Jeff has shed light on some of the more polarizing political issues of our time. These specials have taken him to a maximum security prison, the Boston Police Department, and both sides of the Mexican border. Jeff has immersed himself in these communities and then roasted them.
Jeff also regularly tours with the USO to perform for our troops overseas. Most recently Jeff traveled to Iraq with The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Joseph Dunford, and performed holiday shows for the soldiers stationed there.
Recently, Jeff has also lent his voice to cartoons, with performances in Future Worm, Penn Zero: Part Time Hero, The Emoji Movie, and as series regular “Hook Foot” on the popular Disney show Tangled.
The Roastmaster General is a one man verbal assault unit that takes no prisoners. So what are you waiting for? Come to his shows and see if you have what it takes to get roasted by The Roastmaster General.
This hilarious and unique live show, hosted by comedians Greg Kyte and Adam Broud, brings the best local comedians and combines their standup comedy with fun and insightful interviews. The themed shows cover sex, drugs, marriage, divorce, faith, and doubt. And it's on a Sunday, so it's like going to church but at night and in a comedy club!
