Good clean comedy with Jason Schommer (opens for Louie Anderson in Vegas) and great music provided by the Salty Doggs!


Jason Schommer is a stand up comedian whose energetic style and relatable material has made him one of the region’s favorite entertainers. Laugh-until-you-cry stories combine with playful one-liners as Jason discusses a wide array of topics ranging from living in Sin City, the daily struggles of everyday life and his loveable, yet kooky family. A special treat is his hilarious insight into pop culture and the celebrity-crazed world in which we live as well as his outrageous take on local events and news.

Jason now lives in Las Vegas where he opens nightly for comedy legend and Emmy Award winner Louie Anderson at The Louie Anderson Theater. Louie Anderson has said, "When I first saw Jason I thought of a younger funnier me. I’m proud to have him as my opening act. Soon he will have his own show! He is funny, clever, smart, and on his way to the big time!".

Jason ventured into the world of standup comedy while working on "The Rosie O’Donnell Show" in New York City. The show’s writers thought he was funny and they signed him up to perform at the New York Comedy Club. Jason took to the stage and easily won over the crowd with his ordeals of being a Minnesota boy in the big city for the first time. Like many comics, he was hooked immediately and from there he has taken off to rave reviews and a rapidly growing fan base.

Jason has performed his hilarious standup comedy routines at such venues as New York Comedy Club and Comic Strip Live! in New York City; as well as the Minnesota Comedy Club, ACME Comedy Club (2003 Semi-Finalist for Minnesota Funniest Person Contest), The Joke Joint Comedy Club, House of Comedy at the Mall of America, Black Bear Casino, St. Croix Casino, Last Laugh, and various clubs, events, and bars throughout Minnesota and beyond. In addition to numerous club appearances, Jason can be found entertaining diverse audiences at corporate gatherings such as The CW Television Station, Wal-Mart, Clear Channel, Catholic Charities, as well as fundraisers for Hope in the Heartland, American Cancer Society, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and The Girl Scouts. Jason was also a popular feature on K102 Country Music Morning Show with “From the Trailer” and KFAN radio as the gossip and entertainment reporter. He has also appeared on Cities97 and KDWB.
