"Washington has been the home of a number of very good comics and a few great ones (Wanda Sykes, Dave Chappelle, Lewis Black, Martin Lawrence). Erin Jackson could be next in line." -- The Washington Post
Armed with a megawatt smile and a pocket full of dreams, Erin Jackson is poised to conquer the world of stand-up. In fact, she’d probably be well on her way to superstardom by now if her friends and family hadn’t spent so many years stealing her joy.
Since making a name for herself at colleges and comedy clubs across the country, Erin has garnered national attention with performances on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham. She was a semifinalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, and was a featured writer and performer for TBS's Bitcom Series. Erin has also made several appearances on The Bob and Tom Show. She was invited by HBO to open for Bill Maher at the tapings for his latest HBO special, and recently served as the warm-up comedian for BET’s Black Girls Rock! Awards show.
