Jason Rouse

Los Angeles, California
United States

"I want people leaving, shaking their heads saying, 'That's the strangest thing I've ever seen'" - Jason Rouse


Jason Rouse is a renegade touring stand-up comedian taking the mainstream comedy world and turning it upside down. Over the last decade, this comedy outsider has been sharpening his teeth in clubs and festivals all over the world. Rouse has made it his mission to forge a new road and write a new chapter in stand up comedy. Middle of the road mainstream comedy is left for dead. Instead, this Jester from Hell has been unleashed onto international stages with all of the power of a derailed comedy freight train.

Hamilton-hatched stand up mutant Jason Rouse is the evil Jim Carrey but he's smarter, and light years funnier!' - Darryl Jung, Now Magazine

'He keeps pushing the envelope on what's acceptable. He leaves the middle of the road in the dust.' - Glenn Sumi, Now Magazine

“Dark, twisted, tasteless and very, very funny,” – Metal Hammer Magazine

“Jason Rouse has certainly got a mouth on him. It’s studded with metal from one side to the other, and what comes out of it is usually astoundingly and hilariously obscene.” – James Kettle, The Guardian
