D.C. native, John Conroy, has devoted himself to making people laugh.
Shortly after he relocated to Minnesota, his peers voted him “2008 Best
New Comic in the Twin Cities”. His sharp and well-crafted material then
earned him the title of “2009 Funniest Person in the Twin Cities”. In
addition, his videos on RooftopComedy.com are Staff and Celeb Picks.
John Conroy’s material is smart, aggressive and uncompromising, which makes him a comedian that you won’t soon forget.
Not only is he currently the host of the morning show "Jackson and Ashley" on Q106, Jackson Jones is a hillbilly with a heart of gold. His fast paced comedy is taken from life experiences of dating strippers, being a father, and looking like a meth cook. Originally from Indianapolis but now a madisonian, Jacksons charming souther accent and quick style of speaking reminds one of a deep voiced "Boomhauer". His constant and uncontrollable narcissism and never ending desire for attention keeps him coming to the stage along with the fact that he doesn't know how to do anything else. People who have seen Jackson Jones perform have been quoted as saying "I'm thirsty". "I like his hat". "Tacos are a good idea". And "He's twice as funny as he is attractive".
