Burpie Presents: Comedians You Should Know, Ambrose Jones
A laconic, self deprecating comedian, Ambrose embarked his comedy career in Memphis, TN. Being originally from Chicago, IL makes no sense at all, but he still found a way to turn his southern humor and unique point of view into a brand. Within only 8 years of stand-up, Jones has been a full-time feature act for 3 years. He has already performed at some of the top comedy venues in the business. Comedy Off Broadway, Richmond Funny bone, West Palm Beach Improv, Stardome, Zanies, The Comedy House, Virginia Beach – Funny bone, just to name a few.
Being that person everyone wants to be around to have a good time, testing his skills on stage was a perfect combination. He was terminated from Ups as package driver because of bringing packages back to the building undelivered just so he can be on time to do 5 minutes during the open mic at the local comedy club.
July 22, 2015 he showcased his talent on NBC for Last Comic Standing. Kennan Ivory Wayans said he is like a breath of fresh air and reminds him of a country Chris Rock. Ellen DeGeneres tweeted (you killed it on LCS). Jones made it past the invitational round to the Semi-finals.
During the 2nd audition of LCS at Gotham Comedy Club in NYC, he was approached by the owner of the club and ask to film a show called Gotham Live which is a tv show filmed lived at the club and aired on Axs Tv earlier this year.
Since then Comedian Ambrose Jones remains on the road spreading laughter which is the best medicine because it has never been a recall on it.
