Longtime friends and comedic giants, Jeff Ross and Dave Attell, have joined forces to create a show that highlights their chemistry and mutual abilities to work a crowd. Laugh along with “Bumping Mics” on Saturday, March 17, 2018 at MontBleu Resort Casino & Spa. Show time is 8 p.m. in the MontBleu Showroom with doors opening one hour earlier.
Dave Attell was named one of the 25 Funniest People in America by Entertainment Weekly Magazine. His caustic wit, rapid-fire delivery andchoice of material that can best be described as “very adult” has earned him the reputation as a comic’s comic. But if you ask Attell, he’d say, “I’m just trying to get some laughs and sell some drinks.”
In 2001, he used this love of booze and laughter to create and host the hit series, “Insomniac with Dave Attell” for Comedy Central. A travelogue show in which he goes from city to city looking for late-night fun, The New York Times called the show, “a doubly rare beast, a comedy without rancor and a travel show about the virtues of the American underdog.” To Attell, the Insomniac show is more of a cross between “Girls Gone Wild and Cops.”
Jeff Ross is a respected comedian, writer, and producer also known as “The Roastmaster General.” His roast victims have included Rob Lowe, Justin Bieber, James Franco, Charlie Sheen, James Carville and Donald Trump (twice). Jeff’s most recent comedy specials are the critically acclaimed and highly rated “Jeff Ross Roasts Criminals,” which was filmed inside a maximum-security jail and “Jeff Ross Roasts Cops,” which takes place during ride-a-longs with the Boston Police Department.
Jeff’s recent acting credits include guest-star roles on Audience Network’s “Kingdom,” ABC’s “Dr. Ken,” Comedy Central’s “Drunk History,” Fox’s “Grandfathered,” “The Simpsons,” “Family Guy” and the feature films “Flock of Dudes” and “Wedding Ringer” starring Kevin Hart.
