ABOUT JT

Since riding in a bike-a-thon at 8 years old to his current status of unofficial “Mayor of Cape Cod,” Jonathan Thompson has been a force for positivity in his Cape Cod community.

1990

In the early 90’s, after his performing career came to an end, Thompson decided to begin a new chapter and teamed up with lifelong friend, Tim Lus (who he met on that bike-a-thon ride as a kid) - as well as others and began a journey which has provided entertainment to the community that he loves for over 25 years.

Under the name Incognito Entertainment, which was later changed to Ayboi Entertainment, the group produced hundreds of events including dances, concerts, tournaments and parties.

In 1996, Thompson and Lus created “The Real…” a local video show which included interviews and performances by major recording artists and other types of performers. “The Real…” brand was later expanded to include a radio show (The Real… Radio) and used a format similar to the video show.

2014

On the heels of his growing popularity and infectious personality, Thompson posted a video documenting an inconveniencing knee injury, the day of doctor’s visits and the comedy of errors that followed. The single video created a refreshing take on his everyday life and JT’s Chronicles was born. In the ensuing months he began creating a phenomenon that has grown to over 30,000 followers across multiple social media platforms. The daily series of video blogs include the “Morning Bus Ride with Bob,” many cameo appearances from members of the community (as well as an occasional celebrity – including a fun interaction with Kevin Bacon!), trivia, raffles and an overall message of positivity, usually with a twist of humor. Thompson opens almost every video entry with a “Good morning…. you are watching the Chronicles” and ends with an “I Love you.”

2016

 JT is now known as the go-to guy when the community needs a leader at a vigil or an emcee for an event. When there are plans to hold a fundraiser, like the legendary Figawi Ball or Dancing with the Docs, it’s JT they always want (and need) involved. That is probably why after a 3-month long voting process he was named “Mayor of Cape Cod” at the Art Westfall Foundation’s Bartenders Ball.
