Jaron Myers grew up in a small town in the middle of the Bible Belt. He began playing music at a young age, learning on the piano from his mom when he was 5. In the 6th grade, Jaron joined band and played the tuba (only because he wanted to play the Veggie Tales Theme Song) Later, he learned to play guitar and drums because he heard that "girls liked guys that were in bands".. he didn't get the ladies but loved learning new instruments and playing in worship bands. Before he graduated high school he was traveling with worship bands and was the worship director at his home church!
Myers attended Evangel University in Springfield, Missouri where he studied psychology. While he was there, he began writing funny songs for the on campus talent shows. The songs were a hit among the students and faculty! After failing out of college, Myers was forced to reevaluate his future plans and pursue different opportunities.
He began working at Subway during the week and leading worship at churches on the weekend. A few months after leaving Evangel, a pastor in Kansas City called him with an opportunity to perform his funny songs at his church's Valentine's Day banquet. (The pastor had heard about Jaron and the songs from a college student in his church.) So on Valentine's Day of 2014, Jaron performed his first, paid, full comedy show!
Since then, Myers has honed his craft and found his passion in creating a show that is fun and exciting, but also bring a message of hope and healing to those who have chased happiness and come up empty handed!
Myers has performed for thousands across the country from conferences of a few thousand, to a youth group in Colorado with 6 students (they paid him in burritos). Jaron says his favorite show happened at a state penitentiary. "After the show, one of the inmates came up to me and said, 'I've known some of these guys for 5 or 6 years and I've never even seen them smile but you made us laugh so hard. I really needed that' and that is why I do this"
Over the last 4 years he has built a name for himself in the industry. Being featured on Buzzfeed, Newsweek, and many more! Boasting over 50 million video views online, Jaron just wants to reach more people, and keep creating fun.
Jaron currently lives in Kansas City, Missouri, where he sits at Starbucks during the week photoshopping and listening to people pitch pyramid schemes to their friends and family members.
