North Carolina native son and comedy star Jon Reep will be coming to the Asheville Community Theater this Wednesday.
Reep's resume is impressive. He won NBC's "Last Comic Standing," popularized the "That thing gotta Hemi?" line in Dodge Ram commercials, and recently starred in "Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay." He's had his own half-hour special on Comedy Central, and also been on TBS and ABC.
His redneck comedy has a certain kind of flair that extends beyond the realms of Jeff Foxworthy and other similar acts. He also grew up right down I-40, in Hickory, N.C., and is currently based out of Charlotte.
