This Sunday night in front of a sold out crowd at Seattle's Neptune theater, I will be the lucky and grateful victim of a Jeffery Ross roast! That's right kids, the Roastmaster General himself will open the Seattle stop of his national tour with a 5 minute speedroast of Mrs. O'Neill's second born son. This has to be just about the coolest thing that has ever happened to me!
I mean, being roasted by Jeffrey Ross is like having DiVinci draw a caricature of you on the Boardwalk in Atlantic City! It's like having Tom douglas come to your house in the morning and make your kid's smoked salmon and creamed cheese nosh school lunch! Then taking that lunch and eating it yourself and sending your kid out the door with a ham and cheese Lunchable.
Jeffrey Ross will be unleashing his scathing and relentless verbal barrage at ME! Will it be cruel? Of course! Will I be embarrassed? Naturally! Will I cry? I can only hope! We had Jeffrey on the show this week and he allowed me the honor of shooting a couple of barbs at him. Nervously, I asked him if the Khadafi uniform he wore on stage at the Charlie Sheen roast was from the dictators 80's collection? And told him he looked like the Fresh Prince of Tripoli! When I heard Jeffrey Ross laugh I realized that any pain and emotional scarring I might suffer at the Neptune this Sunday will be a small price to pay!
Listen to our show this Monday for a full recap and maybe even some audio from the roast!
