Nate is the headstrong father and husband of the Parker family. He’s well-intentioned but teeters on the brink of being an impulsive hothead. He never knows whether to cry or knock a person out if they come at his family in any way. Nate was fired from his job right before a big family vacation but thinks he can fix the problem himself without his family ever knowing.
Writer, producer, director, and actor Jason Jones rose to fame during his decade-long stint as a correspondent on Comedy Central's Emmy®- and Peabody Award-winning program The Daily Show, where his interviews garnered him critical and audience attention.

Jones left the show in 2015 and began work on TBS's The Detour. The show is currently the number one cable comedy in America. Alongside writing, directing and executive producing The Detour, Jones also serves as executive producer on Full Frontal with Samantha Bee.
Jones' other credits include recurring roles on CBS's How I Met Your Mother, NBC's Law & Order and Amazon Prime's Creative Galaxy.
