More About Clinton Jackson…
Born and raised in Oakland, California, Clinton Jackson is the youngest of 3 and the only son. An imaginative child inclined to perform, Clinton stood empty handed at “Show & Tell”, told his jokes and officially claimed his identity as a stand-up comic at the age of 9.
After graduating from high school Clinton began to hone his craft in San Francisco’s thriving comedy scene, quickly moving up the ranks to become one of the youngest headliners around. He has appeared on many stand-up comedy television shows including his own half hour specialon Comedy Central as well as The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson. When not headlining his own shows Clinton has been the opening act for such notable artists as Aretha Franklin, Donna Summer,
Dennis Miller, Chris Rock, and Steven Wright.
Following an acclaimed showing at HBO’s prestigious Aspen Comedy Festival, Clinton was cast to co-star as affable science teacher “Mezz Crosby” on the WB’s “Nick Freno: Licensed Teacher”. Subsequent roles as teachers on shows such as the Disney Channel’s “That’s So Raven” and Nickleodeon’s “Taina” further showcased Clinton’s trademark guy-next-door appeal.
Stand-up remains Clinton Jackson’s first love and greatest passion. In addition to comedy clubs he is very popular on the corporate event circuit, doing shows in which he often incorporates his keen ability to improvise with his audience. The San Francisco Chronicle says, “on stage Clinton Jackson moves as if he were in a boxing match delivering material that is not only hilarious to hear but brilliantly visual as well. He’s good natured, clever, and engaging with a unique point of view, earning him the respect of his peers and giving him a broad cross-over appeal. “
