Michael Tully is the former producer of the show turned co-host after a one year leave in 2010 to try his hand at screenwriting. Tully attended Oxford University before his career as guitarist and song writer in Jason Ellis Show bands Taintstick and Death! Death! Die!.
Tully has also been a DJ for SiriusXM on Faction 41 and Octane 37 before being the producer of The Ellis Show, and continues to occasionally do so today.
The Jingleberries are a custom and song parody duo who have written thousands of songs with original lyrics sung to existing popular music and often their own unique musical creations. Many lyrics are written about notable quotes and inside jokes from the show and often around the sound bites being referenced. The duo is lightning fast with their production turnaround time, often creating songs or sound bytes during the show the source was aired.
Luke Trembath, a.k.a. The Dingo, is an Australian professional Snowboarder, and a long time friend of Jason Ellis. He usually appears on "The Jason Ellis Show" for the entire four hours on Mondays.
Jetta is the producer of the show. He works as Ellis' assistant and also for the Jason Ellis website, Ellismania.com.
Bryan “Backbone” Cullen
Cullen is responsible for many song parody vocals and writing as well as archiving all incriminating sound bites from The Jason Ellis Show that Jason refers to on the air as “buttons.” Cullen is the lead-in host on Faction before The Jason Ellis Show and Executive Producer for all celebrity hosts and features on the channel.
Wilson "Hatebean" Pendarvis
WIlson "Hatebean" Pendarvis, is the Faction action sports music channel programmer, the only member of the formidable one-man band, Hatebean, and the conscience of The Jason Ellis Show. Often ruining Jason's and Tully's fun, reminding them of Siruis XM's on-air rules of no penetration or when bringing up un-confirmed news, Jason has often pronounced Wilson's entry into the studio on air with the Imperial March, from the film 'Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back.' Wilson is also summoned into the studio by Jason Ellis to create intro buttons for the show using buttons portraying quotes from the movie Castaway, when Tom Hanks is calling for his volleyball island companion, also known as Wilson. Recently citing on air, Wilson "Hatebean" Pendarvis has written being on the Jason Ellis Show Wikipedia page as something he would like to accomplish on his bucket list. Wil was also named the "Jason Ellis Show world champion lead guitarist" on 5/28/14
The Jason Ellis Show is best described by the host himself as "The Future of Radio." It embodies an unconventional evolution of The Howard Stern Show with 2 main male cohorts laughing over action sports, pop culture and life advice while humorously assaulting one another's personal lives through out-of-context sound bites, song parodies and daring stunts.
Jason periodically uses his arsenal of sound bites and song parodies from the show utilizing funny material captured out-of-context from a guest, Jason Ellis himself or another member of the show. He also makes heavy use of his "Voice Altermacation Machine" for comedy voice effects to highlight whatever scenario he's describing.
Jason's catchphrase "Red Dragons" is the show's way of saying "Fuck shit up" or "Right-the-fuck-on" as well as a throwback to a tribe of Canadian peers of the same name that Jason used to enjoy reckless fun with, becoming an honorary Canadian member during his skateboarding career. The show is uncensored on Sirius XM Satellite Radio and listeners are encouraged to call in throughout the show, igniting a show and radio record 70,000 unique phone calls in one hour.

Dude, Is It Gay?
Anyone calling into the show can present Jason Ellis a questionable scenario, asking if it has any sexual relevance that might be classified as gay in nature. Using whatever his judgment happens to be in that moment, Jason Ellis will analyze and deliberate a "yes" or "no" confirmation. This segment was officially retired because of the host's sympathies toward the gay community in early 2010, but has since been brought back with the endorsement of many prominent gay celebrities.
Dude, Am I A Slut?
Females only call into the show and give their dirtiest story. Jason Ellis, using his arsenal of sound effects, will ding for "yes" and buzz for "no" after careful examination and deliberation of each caller's story. An alternate "Dude, Am I A Gay Slut?" variation is also featured on the show, usually based around gay men.

Women, Am I Right?
Michael Tully's feature segment centered around the most ridiculous news stories of women acting inappropriately in ways no man would likely even consider.
