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 hating on her dreams and stealing her joy.
Since first making a name for herself at colleges and east coast comedy clubs, Erin’s warm, conversational style and relatable humor have helped to propel her onto the national stage. She has performed on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham,” and was a semifinalist on season 6 of NBC’s “Last Comic Standing.” Erin has also appeared on VH-1 and worked with both HBO and BET on live comedy and awards specials. She’s been a panelist on pop-culture countdown shows such as “40 Greatest Hip Hop Songs of the 90’s” and “Best Movie Kisses” and was featured most recently on TV Guide Network’s “StandUp in Stilettos.” Erin is currently touring the country as part of the “Pumps & Punchlines” theatre tour.
