    Comedian Jeff Ross' latest special on Comedy Central is putting the spotlight on Boston police.

    The special, called "Jeff Ross Roasts Cops," features some very awkward moments as the comedian tries to lighten a very somber mood following the non-fatal shooting of a plain-clothes officer and the revelation that he went to a Black Lives Matter protest.

    In a teaser video for the special, Boston Police Commissioner William Evans says the department is seen as compassionate by the community, and allowed his officers to be part of Ross' special as part of that outreach.

    "I wanted to break the stereotype that, you know, we're the bad guys," he said.

    The TV special airs Saturday at 11 p.m. on Comedy Central.
