Unlike some comics who were touched or beaten as children, Ross had a pretty normal life growing up. Somehow, he still managed to view the world as a sick and hopeless place. He has a point of view that is unique, refreshing, truly his own.
Although his act is edgy and hard-hitting, this bourbon-loving Kentuckian has a wide appeal. Part of the fun is feeling a little guilty for laughing at his heartless point of view. But Ross has always been a firm believer that you only go to Hell if you actually mean it. For his sake, let's hope he's right.
Rather than simple laughter, his audiences greet his jokes with cheers and applause. When they leave his show, they feel like they've seen a real comedy act. His high energy and brutal honesty have made him a club favorite.
Having just released his debut album Bourbon on the Ross he is back on the roud touring the entire country and loving every minute of it. If you can't get Ross to come to your town, his CD is the next best thing.

I recently had the priveledge of working with Ross at Comedy Off Broadway in Lexington, KY and the University of West Virginia and I would have to say that I was impressed with his performance and over-the-top personality. Ross definitely has what it takes to make it in this business and I look forward to great things out of him. Keep on keepin' on! -Jay Gates a.k.a. Goldie Brown -Jay Gates
