Gist: Jeff Ross Got Bored, So He Got Political

On The Gist, President Trump’s judicial nominations are starting to look ridiculous.

In the interview, comedian Jeff Ross got a little tired of his shtick as a go-to roast guy for Comedy Central’s famous Friars Club sendups. So he started skewering not people, but places, ideas, and institutions. His latest special, ­­Jeff Ross Roasts the Border, takes viewers to Brownsville, Texas, a city along the U.S.-Mexico border where a huge steel fence is meant to keep migrants from crossing into the United States.    

In the Spiel, bidding farewell to the legendary sports radio host, Mike Francesa.
