Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Best known as for his time as a correspondent on "The Daily Show" (2005-), Jason Jones began his acting career with a less auspicious role, landing a small part in the erotically charged and poorly received thriller "Midnight Temptations" (1995). His work on big and small-screen comedies like "A Beginner's Guide to Endings" (2010) and "How I Met Your Mother" (CBS, 2005-) helped establish the actor as a funnyman, while multi-episode arcs on dramas like "Queer as Folk" (Showtime, 2000-2005) and "As the World Turns" (CBS, 1956-2010) showcased a more sober side.Born June 3, 1973 in Hamilton, Ontario, Jones attended college at Ryerson Theatre School in Toronto. After his appearance in "Midnight Temptations," Jones scuffled through minor roles for most of the late 1990s and early 2000s. The stint started with his bit part in "Short for Nothing" (1998), an obscure Canadian independent film, and continued with appearances in the films "Bait" (2000), "Tribulation Force" (2002), and in the TV adaptation of the beloved children's book "Eloise at the Plaza" (2003). Jones' first real break came when he was hired as a correspondent for "The Daily Show" in 2005. Acclaimed for his deadpan delivery, the comic quickly...

Born June 3, 1973 in Hamilton, Ontario, Jones attended college at Ryerson Theatre School in Toronto. After his appearance in "Midnight Temptations," Jones scuffled through minor roles for most of the late 1990s and early 2000s. The stint started with his bit part in "Short for Nothing" (1998), an obscure Canadian independent film, and continued with appearances in the films "Bait" (2000), "Tribulation Force" (2002), and in the TV adaptation of the beloved children's book "Eloise at the Plaza" (2003). Jones' first real break came when he was hired as a correspondent for "The Daily Show" in 2005. Acclaimed for his deadpan delivery, the comic quickly became a fan favorite. It's safe to say he was popular with at least one colleague as well; he married fellow correspondent Samantha Bee in 2001. The couple have three children: Daughter Piper Bee-Jones, born in 2006; son Fletcher Bee-Jones, born in 2008; and daughter Ripley Bee-Jones, born in 2010.

Jones has twice been nominated for Canadian Comedy Awards, first in 2001, for his writing on "The Bobroom" (2000) and then again in 2005, for his writing and acting in "Ham & Cheese" (2004); he co-wrote, co-produced, and co-starred in the film, which garnered six separate Canadian Comedy Award nominations. Aside from "The Daily Show," the actor has worked with his wife on other projects, including "Cooper's Christmas" (2008), a comedy in which a family chronicles their chaotic Christmas via home movies. Happily married, the pair continued to appear on "The Daily Show" together for years to come.
