“Last Comic Standing” Champion Performs at The Stage
The Pueblo of Santa Ana, N.M. – March 19, 2015

The Pueblo of Santa Ana, N.M. – March 19, 2015 – Santa Ana Star Casino, New Mexico’s Best Bet, welcomes 2007 “Last Comic Standing” champion Jon Reep to The Stage on Thursday, March 26. Reep will perform two shows; the first begins at 7 p.m. and the second begins at 9:30 p.m.

Born and raised in the rural community of Hickory, N.C., Jon Reep grew up with an appreciation of small town life. Although he didn’t pursue comedy professionally until relocating to Raleigh, N.C., his small-town roots continued to shape his humor, giving him a hilariously authentic point of view as a “lovable, red-headed redneck.” Today, Reep embodies supersonic energy on stage, creating crazy characters and sharing his tongue-in-cheek wisdom about family, NASCAR and everything in between. Reep won the fifth season of NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” in 2007 and has his own comedy special, “Jon Reep: Metro Jethro,” available on DVD. He is also an actor with both film and television credits, and he became the breakout star of Dodge’s mid-2000s ad campaign, coining the catchphrase, “That thing gotta Hemi?” 

Tickets to Jon Reep’s performances at The Stage at Santa Ana Star Casino range between $15 and $40 and can be purchased online at www.thestageatthestar.com. Attendees must be 21 years old or older. For more information, please call (505) 771-5680.
