Benefit Show For Officer John Downs With Ralphie May, Jon Reep, And Nate Bargatze

The content on this page is provided by a Time Out partner.

For one night only, Ralphie May, Jon Reep, and Nate Bargatze will join comedic forces to raise money for Officer John Downs. Downs was shot by an armed robbery suspect in December of this year. He was severely wounded and had to undergo surgery. All of the proceeds from this show will go to Downs and his family to help with medical bills. About Ralphie May: Voted one of Variety’s “10 Comics to Watch,” Ralphie May has released, a record-setting, four one- hour comedy specials and will be releasing two more this year, proving that his relatable comedic genius is in higher demand than ever. In addition, he recently released a vintage comedy album recorded in Houston in 1998 and his new line of barbecue sauce called “Fat Baby Jesus.” Lovable enough to get away with anything, Ralphie continues to capture the hearts of thousands on his sold out tours and promises to make you gleefully uncomfortable. About Jon Reep: Does this face look familiar? Maybe you remember Jon as the fifth season winner on NBC's "Last Comic Standing" or have seen him on Comedy Central's "Premium Blend" or the half-hour special "Comedy Central Presents: Jon Reep". If it’s not from his stand-up performances then you probably know Jon from Dodge's popular ad campaign as the "Hemi guy" where Jon is known to millions as the redheaded hillbilly in the Dodge Ram commercials who leans out of a beat-up car and utters the now famous line: "That thing gotta Hemi?" Born in Hickory, NC, Jon moved to Raleigh to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree in theater at North Carolina State University. In 2000 Jon was invited to perform at the prestigious Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal, Canada and has since been invited back to perform in the "Best of the Fest" and a "Gala" show. Other notable festival dates include performing at the Las Vegas Comedy Festival and the Bonaroo Music & Arts Festival and the Vancouver Comedy Festival. Now based in Los Angeles, Jon is one of the hardest working comics in America, performing on television, in films and selling out clubs and theaters across the country. His show is supersonic energy filled with non-stop characters, super clever writing and of course the one talent that separates Jon from all other comedians in the world: He's the best redneck dancer since Elvis. About Nate Bargatze: Nate Bargatze has had three late night appearances on Conan and had his own Comedy Central Presents. He keeps his act fresh by performing every night in his home city of New York. Comedian Nate Bargatze’s resume is nothing to laugh at. Bargatze’s television debut on CMT Comedy Stage catapulted him into the world of comedy. He has written for Spike TV’s Video Game Awards and received critical acclaim at the Montreal Comedy Festival. When he isn’t winning comedy festivals in both New York and Boston, or performing at Bonnaroo, he might just be performing for troops in Iraq, which he has done five times.
