"Here's my bottom line issue; it has nothing to with his act, his schtick, his routine, his delivery or presentation. It has to do with...you have to realize who your audience is. We know who his audience is," said Ross. "But who's the audience that bought a ticket and there's an ass every 18 inches? That's what I'm concerned about. When you have women and children -- and I had people mention that to me that had children there that had some explaining to do about the penis thing. Maybe a better decision could have been made as far as creative without cutting his cord. Without giving him a creative vasectomy."

Ross conceded that he realizes he is not Ryan's target demographic as a 66-year-old.
