Jack Shepherd found his gift early on in his youth. He is now one of Ohio's top comedians and has performed his comedic shows all over the country. His unique sense of humor has landed him as the opening act for Martin Lawrence, a showcase on BET's ComicView (in 1992 with hosts D.L. Hughley & in 1995 with Cedric the Entertainer), opening act at The Apollo Comedy Hour, and privileged to open for Richard Pryor at the famous Comedy Store. At 23, he became the first comedian on the all new DEF COMEDY JAM (in LA), hosted by Steve Harvey. Jack has been showcased on 8 national television series, and the host of the FUNNY BONE'S Urban Night for 9 years. He wrote, starred in, and executive produced 3 independent films: POLITICAL PROMISE, HOLY HU$TLE, and A FAMILY AFFAIR. And he did it again in his newest stand-up comedy movie, JACK LIVE MATTERS, which was filmed and produced here in Columbus, Ohio with an ensemble of local talent.
