Born and raised in New Jersey Russ Williamson moved to Chicago in 2005 to try his luck at stand up comedy. Since then he's played Chicago's biggest rooms and has worked with stand up's biggest names. Look for him in the fall on the Starz series BOSS and the movie Contagion out September 9th.
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".
