“Laugh It Off!” is inspired by Jason’s mother saying, “If you can laugh about it, you can survive it!”. All you can do with the ups and downs in life is laugh it off and keep moving forward one laugh at a time.

In this hysterical night of comedy, Jason will be tackling the trials and tribulations of everyday life, recounting some of his more outrageous moments working in entertainment, and examining the unique perspective for life, based on growing up in a small town.

Jason will also be performing a few selections of his winning stories from The Moth StorySlams. Patrick Strait from MN Comedy has said this about Jason, “Nobody tells a better story than Jason Schommer. A long-time opener for the legendary Louie Anderson, Schommer is a multi-layered talent who combines stand-up, storytelling, acting, and improv to create a unique experience every time he is on stage. Jason is a true performer in every sense of the word, and one of the most engaging personalities in all avenues of Twin Cities comedy.”

Jason has worked in New York City for The Rosie O’Donnell Show and has worked behind the scenes in Hollywood as a stand in for Louie Anderson on the FX television series Baskets.

In 2017 Jason released his first live comedy album “Confessions of a Local Celebrity”. A regular performer at The Moth, Jason has won numerous Story Slam competitions and was invited to perform at the GrandSlam at The Fitzgerald Theatre in St. Paul in 2016 and 2023 and in 2018 at The Guthrie Theater and The Pantages Theater in 2022.
