John Reep

John Reep is a blue-collar Dane Cook. Of course, with a Last Comic Standing victory under this belt and a recurring role as the “That thing got a Hemi?” guy in Dodge truck commercials, Reep has proven he’s past the comparison stage. But he does take a cue from Cook with material that consists largely of humorous re--enactments of everyday matters rather than social commentary. Reep puts his own Southern twist (read: accent) on the jokes thanks to his upbringing in North Carolina. He rips on his dad, who snores too loud; cheap beer; people who talk loudly on their cell phones in public; and the comical aspects of his own dancing and martial arts skills.
