Raised by Jews in an enchanted forest north of Detroit, Jason only recently discovered his talents for making people uncomfortable after a chance encounter with the devil at the crossroads. Though he came away from the deal missing 9/10ths of his soul, he can now play the ukulele and trombone while making mediocre jokes about historical monsters including Hitler, Mao, and of course, Martin Van Buren.
