Does this face look familiar? Maybe you remember Jon as the fifth season winner on NBC's "Last Comic Standing" or have seen him on Comedy Central's "Premium Blend" or the half-hour special "Comedy Central Presents: Jon Reep". If it’s not from his stand-up performances then you probably know Jon from Dodge's popular ad campaign as the "Hemi guy" where Jon is known to millions as the redheaded hillbilly in the Dodge Ram commercials who leans out of a beat-up car and utters the now famous line: "That thing gotta Hemi?"
Born in Hickory NC Jon moved to Raleigh to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree in theater at North Carolina State University. In 2000 Jon was invited to perform at the prestigious Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal Canada and has since been invited back to perform in the "Best of the Fest" and a "Gala" show. Other notable festival dates include performing at the Las Vegas Comedy Festival and the Bonaroo Music & Arts Festival and the Vancouver Comedy Festival.
Now based in Los Angeles Jon is one of the hardest working comics in America performing on television in films and selling out clubs and theaters across the country. His show is supersonic energy filled with non-stop characters super clever writing and of course the one talent that separates Jon from all other comedians in the world: He's the best redneck dancer since Elvis.
