Jon Reep (born March 26, 1972 in Hickory, North Carolina) is an American stand-up comedian and actor. While attending a Carolina Panthers football game with his friends, Jon began to dance to the music during timeouts. As the game grew on, so did Jon's following in the crowd. People were laughing at Jon's antics, and soon the whole stadium was laughing at, and mimicking, Jon's actions. The Carolina Panther's mascot was so impressed with Jon, that he invited him onto the field. As Jon was performing "the worm" on the five yard line, he was pulled away by three stadium police. The police were oblivious to the fact that Jon had been invited onto the field. This is the point that Jon decided he wanted to pursue a career in comedy.
He has appeared on Comedy Central's Premium Blend, NBC's Late Friday, CBS's Star Search and was a semi-regular on ABC's Rodney. In 2007, Jon starred in his own CMT Comedy Club special, and he will appear on the fifth season of NBC's Last Comic Standing.
