Comedy Showcase: Jeffrey Ross Meets Larry the Toll Booth Operator



Jeff Ross (born Jeffrey Ross Lipschultz to a Jewish family in Springfield, New Jersey) is a stand-up comedian, actor, and author. His skill in doing high-profile celebrity roasts and his appearances in Comedy Central's Roasts, have led him to be dubbed "The Roastmaster General."

He has appeared in various film, television, and cartoon projects. He has made appearances at events for U.S. soldiers and directed a documentary film covering his experiences touring U.S. bases in Iraq.

Here's Jeff in a Comedy Central special when he asked for someone in the audience to come up to the stage to assist him in a comedy routine. He got more than he bargained for when Larry the Toll Booth Operator accepted his invitation.

Enjoy!

    1. But don't you think that some of the humor was offset by the embarrassment of the participating audience member who was ribbed by the comedian?

  2. Probably the funniest video you've shown. I don't think Larry was embarrassed at all. He took it all in good stride and he's a great improv pianist.

    1. Good question. I don't know the answer. If anybody does, please chime in.

  4. Larry was recently on Comedy Central; he did two separate roasts back-to-back. The first was performed in a prison; the second was in a Boston police station! He was well accepted in both locations and by the television viewers.

    1. You mean Jeff. Larry is the volunteer piano player.
