zanies | APRIL 18
Just 2 southern comedians living in southern California making their way anyway they know how. Yee F’n Haw Y’all.
JON REEP: JON REEP is a nationally touring comedian and actor who recently guest starred in an episode of BLACK-ISH and in the entire final season of EASTBOUND AND DOWN and appeared in Steven Quale’s feature film INTO THE STORM, alongside Richard Armitage (THE HOBBIT) and Matt Walsh (VEEP).
Jon is best known for his iconic “Hemi Guy” from Dodge’s popular ad campaign and “Raymus, the pot smoking farmer” from HAROLD AND KUMAR: ESCAPE FROM GUANTANAMO BAY. Reep was the winner of Season Five of LAST COMIC STANDING for NBC and has appeared on PIT STOP COMEDY for TBS, LATE FRIDAY for NBC, and COMEDY CLUB for CMT. In addition to airing his stand up special JON REEP: METRO JETHRO, Comedy Central has featured Reep on its PREMIUM BLEND and COMEDY CENTRAL PRESENTS programming.
SARAH TIANA: Most recently, Sarah was featured on the big hit show Roast Battle on Comedy Central in which she was the runner-up in a field of 16 other comics at the Just for Laughs festival in Montreal. She is a regular on @Midnight on Comedy Central, regular on Chelsea Lately, regular/writer on The Josh Wolf Show on CMT, regular at “ignoring red flags.” Writer for Jeff Ross and The Burn, Host of the Roast of Justin Beiber Red Carpet, Host of the CMA’s Red Carpet.
These are the things you know about Sarah Tiana.
What you don’t know is Sarah Tiana has been a “working” comedian/ex-waitress in Los Angeles since 2003. Originally from Calhoun, GA, Sarah's act emphasizes the thrills of growing up after “The War Of Northern Aggression” and trying to survive in the current battle of the sexes. She doesn’t call herself “single,” (she’s too old for that), she prefers to be called “sexually active.”
Sarah’s big break came after she was recognized for her "breakout performance" as Carmen in four episodes of Reno 911's 7th season. In 2005, she helped create a sketch comedy company called The Strait Jacket Society as a way to help young actors in Hollywood accelerate their stage time and gain exposure while still having fun (she has currently put over 500 actors through the program).
A downright ‘Merican, Sarah has done over 12 tours of comedy for the troops including Germany, Singapore, Afghanistan, Guam, Okinawa, and several Wounded Warrior Facilities. A trip to Iraq at the beginning of the war is highlighted in the documentary film, "We Love You Mrs. Bevins.” She has been a correspondent on “The Soup Investigates” as well as “Love You, Mean It” starring Whitney Cummings.
An avid sports fan, Sarah wrote for the ESPY awards and the Rob Riggle NFL segments on FOX. She can be seen at The World Famous Comedy Store, Twitter, and numerous unhealthy relationships in and around Los Angeles. She will never be seen in the three pilots she taped last year or be caught dead in the dress she wore on Craig Ferguson (it no longer fits).
