Hickory NC Comedian Jon Reep Wins Last Comic Standing

hickory nc comedian jon reepCongratulations to my long-time colleague Jon Reep, winner of this year's Last Comic Standing on NBC. Jon is not just the pride of Hickory, NC - he's the pride of Raleigh, NC and NCSU. We're all very proud of him.
I first met Jon at Raleigh Comedy Club Charlie Goodnights in the late 90's. Jon's act back then consisted mainly of HIGH-energy dance routines performed to ear-shattering music. He absolutely owned the club back then and quickly built a reputation for himself. He hit the college market and was an immediate hit with his lovable persona and frenetic comedy style. His act is authentic. What you see is what you get.
Jon made the move to Los Angeles in 2000 and seemingly overnight landed the role as the "Hemi Guy" in a memorable Dodge campaign. A recurring role on the ABC sitcom "Rodney" followed, all capped off by his win on Last Comic Standing.
Ten years is no overnight success. Yet Jon's career trajectory has been nothing short of straight up. I can't wait to see what happens next. Congratulations, Jon. You deserve it!
