Does this face look familiar? Maybe you remember Jon as the fifth season winner on 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 standup 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?" You also know Jon as the redneck farmer from “Harold and Kumar: Escape Guantanamo Bay” and television host of “Are you Faster than a Redneck” on the Speed Channel.
Now based in Los Angeles, Jon is one of the hardest working comics in America, performing on television, in films, and selling out clubs and theaters across the country. His show is supersonic energy filled with non-stop characters, super clever writing and of course the one talent that separates Jon from all other comedians in the world: He's the best redneck dancer since Elvis.
Hailed as one of the top 50 Latino comics in the U.S., Bronx native Angelo Lozada attributes his upbringing in the boogie-down for his comedic stylings. His career has included stand-up, sketch comedy, writing, theater and film. His television stand-up credits include NBC’s Showtime at the Apollo, BET’s Comic View, SiTV’s Latino Laugh Festival, and most recently, Martin Lawrence Presents: First Amendment on the STARZ cable television network.
Housed at the famed Nuyorican Poet’s Café for twelve years, his acclaimed comedy troupe, Nuyorican Rule appeared in Showtime at the Apollo and veteran comic Robert Klein’s New Joke City. As co-founder and head writer, Lozada wrote and performed about urban experiences, challenging race, class and gender stereotypes through comedy. This revolutionary comedy troupe has inspired numerous other urban comedy troupes and is often recalled and invited to return to large and small stages.
In addition, Lozada has numerous writing credits on different media, including animation, digital, print and commercial. Lozada has been a head writer on the animated series, Lugar Heights, featured on Galavision, MTV3, MUN2, MTV3, a head writer for comedynet.com, and monthly columnist focusing on Latina/o culture for the New York Daily News. He has also found commercial success in head writing for a national advertisement campaign for Burger King.
His acting experiences include both theatre and film. In 2009, Lozada was invited and accepted to perform in the New York Stage and Film’s production of A Shoe Story, written by acclaimed New York City Hip Hop Theater writer/artist Ben Snyder and directed by In the Heights’ Tommy Kail. His film appearances have included Destination Unknown, Arrangement, The Start-up, and Blind Leading the Blind, one of the 2007 New York City’s Latino International Festival’s featured short films.
Proud to perform in English and Spanish, Lozada enjoys using his Puerto Rican heritage to unite folks of all backgrounds to understand the human experience through laughter.
