"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 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 she was a semifinalist on season 6 of NBC’s "Last Comic Standing." Erin has appeared on VH-1, TBS and IFC, and has been panelist on pop-culture countdown shows, such as "Best Movie Kisses" and "Sexiest Hollywood Geeks." She was featured most recently on TV Guide Network's "StandUp in Stilettos," and is currently touring the country as part of the "Pumps & Punchlines" theatre tour.
