• Jeff Ross, Dave Attell are Bumping Mics in Netflix trailer

    Roast lovers rejoice! Netflix has released a trailer for Bumping Mics with Jeff Ross & Dave Attell. The three-part comedy special comes to the streaming giant on November 27. Part roast show, part variety hour, the comedy event will feature insult-based comedy from Jeff Ross and Dave Attell along with a myriad of comedians and celebrity drop-ins.

    Ross and Attell are billed in the trailer as best friends. The two have worked together many times in the past on live shows and tours, but now they are making it Netflix official. Ross is a roast legend—frequently referred to as the Roastmaster General. He has burned everyone from Bruce Willis to Donald Trump, and even recorded a roast special in a prison. Attell has been in acting more in recent years with roles in The Jim Gaffigan Show and Crashing, as well as a role in Amy Schumer’s Trainwreck. The raunchy comic maintains a loyal cult following from his Comedy Central TV show, Insomniac with Dave Attell, which ran from 2001 to 2004.

    Taped in the historic Comedy Cellar at the Village Underground, Bumping Mics seems to have a very authentic core. It captures the feeling of seeing live stand-up comedy in New York City. The trailer shows the stars as they perform on stage and walk through the surrounding neighborhoods. It also teases appearances from big names like Hasan Minhaj, Bob Saget, Bruce Willis, Michelle Wolf, Gilbert Gottfried, and Michael Che.

    The trailer delivers zinger after zinger, such as, “You look like you own rivaling porn shops,” and, “I used to work out, but I hurt my back carrying this show.” The special was directed by Emmy Award winner Andrew Jarecki, who is best known for his work on the HBO miniseries The Jinx.
