When asked to describe his style of stand-up comedy, Russell Ehrett likes to call it “The Revenge of the Nerd”. His comedic voice is the kind that only comes from years of being the gawky outsider looking in, and now that he’s got a microphone in his hands he’s got something to say. Sharing his unique and hilarious viewpoint in venues across the country, Russell leaves the audience with the feeling that the nerd they all knew in high school is back, and man, that guy is funny.
Russell got his start in comedy in Edinburgh, Scotland. While on an exchange program, he tried his hand at a local open mic and left the audience in stitches and cheering for more. Only later did he discover it was a room full of drunken Danish tourists who didn’t speak English very well, but it was too late – he was hooked. Upon his return home, Russell received his degree in English Literature from the University of Alabama and instead of writing the great American novel he decided to write jokes instead.
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".
