Jon Jafari is an internet celebrity who is colloquially known for reviewing bad to terrible video games and movies (sometimes good) on his channel, JonTronShow. In 2012 he started a gaming channel called Game Grumps with animator and voice-actor, Egoraptor, where he used to play games whilst telling stories. Around a year later, he left the show because he was moving to New York and wanted to focus more on his own channel.

He has a talking pet robotic green-cheeked conure, called Jacques, that shoots laser beams out of its eyes when enraged or annoyed, but can also do it by command. It is also known that Jacques is omnipresent and can teleport Jon to wherever Jacques pleases. Jon also has a pet rock, called Rockington, which appears to be lost during Banjo Kazooie: Nuts And Bolts.

He has appeared in every's his show.


Jon is the host of the JonTronShow, reviewing games in a comedic style.  He comments about the gameplay and controls and commonly points out something broken or interesting.  He is sometimes portrayed as a hero in some episodes by having the game he played be evil and try to kill him.  In some reviews, he destroys the cartridge of a game, not because it's trying to kill him, but because he hates playing it.

Jon has also done movie and TV reviews.

Game GrumpsEdit

On the 10th of July in 2012, Jon started an online Let's Play show called Game Grumps with Egoraptor, Arin Hanson, as co-host.  The series is a success with Jon and Arin playing many more games, some of which are sent in by fans.  Throughout the show, Jon sometimes tells stories of his past and anything else that happened during the show's run.  Jon left the show on the 24th of June 2013 due to him wanting to return to JonTronShow and start what he calls "Season 2" of JonTron.  He was replaced with Danny Sexbang of Ninja Sex Party after he left.



  • In the picture of Jon and Jacques on the title cards, he is dressed as Banjo from Banjo-Kazooie, carrying Jacques in his backpack as Kazooie.
    • The title card was recently updated with Hercules Games, featuring a new title card with Jon wearing new clothing, but still references Banjo-Kazooie with Jacques behind him.
  • Jon originally had a older channel before he began doing reviews.  The channel is still on Youtube, but is no longer updated.
    • Along with this, he has a new channel that features sneak peaks and outtakes, however he hasn't advertised the channel in his recent videos.  He does show sneak peeks that advertise the channel on his Facebook page though.
  • Jon created Normal Boots along with the assistance of his friend PeanutButterGamer, which was the original website that Jon uploaded videos to.  It was shut down in 2012 because the users of the site made a lot more money from ad revenue from YouTube than they did with the site. However, Normal Boots returned in 2014 due to the eventual uncertainty of dependence on YouTube for income. In other words, YouTube is the fall and rise of Normal Boots.
  • Jon also has a Blip.TV account that he uses, but it has not been updated.  He has only advertised it once for his Jurassic Park review which he took off of his Youtube channel.
  • Jon has a talent in singing, which is shown in a few episodes, such as The League and I and Dinocity BRO!!!  This talent was also commonly shown in Game Grumps.
  • When the show started, Jon resided in California with his roommate Barry Kramer (one of two current editors of Game Grumps). However, he moved back to his native New York City after his tenure with Game Grumps ended.
  • Most of his video game reviews since 2013 usually revolve around a certain theme. The theme is usually a medium (such as Barbie or the Home Alone movies) converted into a mass of licensed video games.
  • Jon used to own a second pet bird named Spaghetti sometime after returning to New York City. However, Jon gave him away in fear of the bird hurting Jacques (due to Spaghetti's larger size), and the constant screeching he made at night.
