Maybe you remember Jon as the fifth season winner of
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 recognize Jon from his appearances on HBO's "Eastbound and Down" and ABC's hit show "Blackish." He has also appeared on Dodge's popular ad campaign, "Hemi Guy", where Jon is known to millions as the redheaded hillbilly famous for leaning out of his rusty beater and uttering, "That thing gotta Hemi?"
