From Hickory to Hollywood and back to Hickory again, Jon Reep brings his unique, Country-ish point-of-view to his weekly podcast. Jon chats with local friends and celebrity guests, and has ongoing segments such as “Small Town News”, “Good Will Hunting”, “Meme Me”, and “Jon’s Journal”.
Jon Reep is a nationally touring comedian whose contemporary country point of view has won over legions of fans in comedy clubs, on tv and in film. As a stand-up he’s built a following through his hilarious comedy specials and as the winner of NBC’s fifth season of Last Comic Standing. He can currently be seen in Netflix’s Brad Paisley’s Comedy Rodeo and his new standup album Ginger Pain was released in March 2019 on 800 Pound Gorilla Records. Jon’s hour standup special Jon Reep: Metro Jethro and his half hour standup special both aired on Comedy Central.

As an actor, Jon has been seen in Tig Notaro’s Amazon Series One Mississisppi, CW’s Jane The Virgin, ABC’s Black-ish, HBO’s Eastbound and Down, and as the “Hemi Guy” from Dodge’s popular ad campaign. On the big screen he appeared in the feature film Into the Storm and as the beloved “Raymus, the pot smoking farmer” in Harold and Kumar: Escape From Guantanamo Bay.
On a nonstop tour since he burst onto the scene, Jon performs to sold-out audiences at clubs and theaters across the country.
Jon has had the opportunity to interview a lot of people over the past year or so for his show COUNTRY-ish… so on this week’s show we share clips from a few of our favorites.
First up, Jon chats with comedian Bert Kreischer about how great it would be to have a twin.
Next, Jon talks with comedian Fortune Feimster about how she got her name, North Carolina BBQ, and Southern accents.
Then, Jon talks with fellow redhead Ginger Billy about how he went from working in the medical field to becoming a comedian and YouTube video star.
Last but not least, Jon talks to comedian Leanne Morgan about how she got started in comedy and what her first stand-up performance was like.
It’s a deja-vu kind of episode this week on COUNTRY-ish!
In this week’s episode, Jon and Marcus Stamos get together to talk about some new studio decorations and the Val Kilmer documentary.
Then they read viewer comments on the “Meme Me” segment where Jon posted an old photo of him as a kid with a glass of milk and a gun (‘Merica!).
Then Jon and his mother visit Mountain Fried Chicken for a new installment of “Mukbanging with Mom’osa”. Which side item is Jon’s favorite? And does he overcome his hatred of Coleslaw?
Then comedian Rocky Dale Davis joins the show from his garage on the “Who’s Zoomin’ Who?” segment to talk with Jon about Alabama football teams, being a mascot, and his new best friend Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
In “Small Town News”, Jon shares a story about a fish caught in Nags Head NC with very human-like teeth… in fact, they look a lot like Gary Busey’s. And finally, in “Goodwill Hunting”, Jon and Marcus Stamos exchange gifts from a local GoodWill. Jon receives something from the Gay Dolphin in Myrtle Beach, and Marcus receives… well, we’re not really sure what it is.
This is a finger-lickin’, milk-drinkin’, fish-lovin’ episode!
