Jeff Gross is an adventurer, traveler, and filmmaker who collaborated with Roman Polanski on several screenplays, including Frantic and Bitter Moon. He lives in Paris along with his two children, wife and mentally disturbed cocker spaniel, Bodhi.
He has crossed the Atlantic in a sailboat, crossed the United States by freight train, has met the best and the worst in over 30 countries around the world, and he tried to play professional football (soccer) in Stockholm and Berlin before coming to his senses. He used to speak seven languages fluently, but without practice it turns into esperanto soup.
Seen here at Le Paname club in Paris, scared stiff as he tries his hand at standup comedy.
