Writer, producer, director, and actor Jason Jones rose to fame during his decade-long stint as a correspondent on Comedy Central’s Emmy®- and Peabody Award-winning program, The Daily Show, where his interviews garnered him critical and audience attention. As the longest serving male correspondent, he holds the record for most field pieces, most lawsuits and most people put in prison.
Jones left the Daily Show in 2015 to create and star in TBS’s The Detour which is currently in its third season. Alongside writing, directing and executive producing The Detour, Jones also serves as Executive producer on Full Frontal with Samantha Bee.
Jones’s other credits include recurring roles on CBS’s How I Met Your Mother, NBC’s Law and Order, and Amazon’s Creative Galaxy.
On the big screen, Jones has appeared in Date Night, Pitch Perfect, Pitch Perfect 2, The Art of the Steal, Hot Tub Time Machine 2, Goon 2 and whole bunch of other crap you haven’t heard of.
