Comedian Jon Carden has climbed upward from the very bottom of society and has reached, at the very least, the middle. Comedy provided Jon an opportunity to fashion tales of his turbulent upbringing in the backwoods trailers of North Carolina into a craft that has landed him on some of the biggest stages in the country.
In December 2019 Jon Carden was hand-selected by Frank Caliendo to be 98.7 KUPD’s Funniest Comedian and was awarded the opportunity to open for Brian Callen, Adam Ray, and Frank Caliendo in front of an audience of 4,000 people at Celebrity Theater. Jon was also a finalist for Rick Bronson’s Funniest Comedian (2018), and a winner of The Pacific Cannabis Comedy Cup (2016). He is a regular opener for Big Jay Oakerson and is a trusted comedian at over 50 clubs across the country.
