Live Review: Jon Reep

Aug. 28, 2008; McGlohon Theatre, 9:30 p.m.

The Deal: Hickory-native and stand-up comedian Jon Reep visited the Q.C. last night, performing two shows at McGlohon Theatre with local opening comedy acts Sean Keenan and Sid Davis.

The Good: Jon Reep is hilarious. During his set, he tackled topics like the audacity of Southern states (including sayings and customs), nudity in locker rooms and of course, he danced. Pretty much everything that came out of his mouth was funny, whether it be jokes or just his own personal stories about his family and wife. At the end of his set, he shifted to doing more dancing and impersonations. It was just as funny as the first half of his set and the audience cackling.

The Bad: Not a thing. He went over time-wise during both sets, but this was a good thing for those in the crowd, who seemed to be enjoying themselves.

The Verdict: Next time Reep is in town, go see his show. There is a reason he won NBC's Last Standing Comic. He will make your face hurt from laughing so hard.
