About Jason Salmon
Born during a freak hailstorm in Texas, Jason’s mom sensed early that something was off. Turns out, that something...was Comedy. Jason's mix of colloquial philosophy and absurdist observation have made him a must-see for comedy fans of all ages. His standup has been described as “…like getting the best advice ever from the dumbest guy you know.”
As an actor, improv and sketch comic, Jason found success, but it wasn't until he stepped onto the standup stage that he realized his true calling (and that he could still do those other things). He has since appeared on standup stages across the U.S., on the small screen (in Orange is the New Black and 30 Rock), in a ton of commercials (including Toyota 4Runner: Snakebite and GEICO: Happier than a Witch in a Broom Factory). Most recently he's been featured on Comedy Central.
Homestake Opera House
From its construction in 1914 until a catastrophic fire in 1984, the Opera House was the center of community life and lifelong education in Lead, South Dakota. The Historic Opera House Society is dedicated to its restoration, use, and preservation for future generations, in the belief that it is the cornerstone for the preservation, renewal, and development of our community.
The society’s focus is on fundraising to acquire funds as necessary to complete the restoration of the theater and recreation center building to bring back “The Jewel of the Black Hills” to its original 1914 glory. While these efforts continue, the Society makes use of the facility to the extent possible to generate revenue and advance its mission.
