Jon Reep is an American stand-up comedian and actor, known as the That thing got a Hemi? guy in Dodge commercials, and as the winner of the fifth season of Last Comic Standing on NBC.
Hi I'm Jon Reep. Comedian, Actor, & Metro Jethro. I was born and raised in Hickory, NC. Which was the furniture capitol of the world for a while. It's also home to Winston-Cup champion Dale Jarrett and the pig from Green Acres. Eva Gabor. Just kidding, she's from Hungary. I graduated from North Carolina State University 1997 with a Bachelor of Arts in Theater, Mass Communication, and Public & Personal communication. A year later I hit the road as a full-time traveling comic, and that was the end of my life as a normal human being. In 2000, I moved to Los Angeles to try my hand at an acting career. As an actor I've played the pot smoking farmer "Raymus" from the movie Harold and Kumar escape from Guantanamo Bay, and the dim witted cop "Gerald Bob" from the ABC Sitcom Rodney. But you probably know me from Dodge Truck's popular ad campaign as the "Hemi guy". I'm 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? But before all that I was already one of the hardest working comics in America, selling out clubs and getting standing ovations at college after college across the country. As a comedian you may have seen me on season 5 of "Last Comic Standing" on NBC. I was the winner that year, thank you very much. Maybe you've seen me on Comedy Central's "Premium Blend" or the half-hour special "Comedy Central Presents: Jon Reep". Possibly, you've seen me on TBS's "Pit Stop Comedy", NBC's "Late Friday" or CMT's "Comedy Club" & "Comedy stage." I have performed at the Montreal "Just for Laughs" Festival in 1999 & 2004. I've also performed in the Las Vegas Comedy Festival in 2005 and the Bonaroo Music & Arts Festival 2006. Most recently I headlined a club during the Vancouver Comedy Festival in 2009. My show is supersonic energy filled with non-stop characters and super clever writing. So get your tickets now. I guarantee this show will make the rafters shake and your biscuits
