Jason Banks is a veteran stand-up comedian out of Columbus, Ohio. During the 2020 pandemic, Jason created a TikTok account and started making content, which now has since amassed over 9 million followers, over 270 million likes and over 1 BILLION views. Jason’s viral skits detail the misadventures of his fictional son Derek and his friends, all played by Jason. In addition to creating content online, often inspired by his 10-year-old twins, Jason performs on some of the biggest stages all over the country. After winning numerous competitions in his home state of Ohio — including the “Funniest Person in Columbus Contest” at the Columbus Funny Bone — Jason started touring the U.S. regularly. He’s appeared on both seasons of Laff Mobb’s Laff Tracks on TruTV and most recently recorded his first hour special in Atlanta, which will be released in 2023.
