Making a Difference: Roastmaster General Jeff Ross and Comedy Central Make Generous Donation to “Cops For Kids With Cancer”

Our thanks to Jeff Ross and Comedy Central for their generous donation to one of our favorite charities, “Cops For Kids With Cancer.”  Last week,  Jeff stopped by BPD Headquarters to say hello, share some laughs and take a few jabs at a couple of his favorite targets from his most recent special “Jeff Ross Roasts Cops” which took aim at the Boston Police Department.  The show featured a behind-the-badge look at the challenges police officers are facing on a daily basis amidst a difficult national climate towards law enforcement.    Said Commissioner Evans, “Jeff has spoken about the fact that comedy can bring people together, and here in Boston, we’re trying every single day to make meaningful connections in the communities we serve.  I knew this roast, while maybe a little unconventional, would let people see the important work that we’re doing on a daily basis and show that, while the job we do is very serious, we don’t take ourselves too seriously.”
