If there’s one thing we need more of in this world, it’s zingers—and the zingier the better. Jeff Ross and Dave Attell, pro comedians, are grand masters of the zinger. Indeed, it’s the currency that they deal in, the bedrock upon which they’ve built their comedy careers. When Jeff Ross and Dave Attell zing, the world laughs.
Next week Netflix, the premiere streaming destination for zingers, launches a three-episode series that celebrates not just the zinger but the deep, lifelong friendship between Ross and Attell. Bumping Mics with Jeff Ross & Dave Attell promises an intimate look at two fiftysomething comics making fun of each other’s appearance, with what seems to be occasional forays into Washington Square Park. (Yes, this was shot in the Village. Yes, that means the Comedy Cellar.) Along the way expect some cameos from both comedians—including Bob Saget, Hasan Minhaj, Michelle Wolf, Gilbert Gottfried, and Michael Che—and random famous people—like Bruce Willis and Paul Rudd. And it’s directed by the guy who made The Jinx, Andrew Jarecki, so maybe Ross will finally fess up by the end.
Bumping Mics premieres on Netflix on Nov. 27.
