“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 a superstar 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 conversational style and relatable humor have helped to propel her onto the national stage. In 2013, Erin traveled with Dave Chappelle as the opening act for his summer tour and landed a co-hosting spot on “Exhale,” a provocative and candid talk series, now in its second season on Earvin “Magic” Johnson’s ASPiRE television network. She was also nominated “Best Female Entertainer” by Campus Activities Magazine, the official publication of the National Association for Campus Activities (NACA). Erin has performed on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” OWN’s “Wanda Sykes Presents Herlarious,” “and was a semi-finalist on "Last Comic Standing".
