Erin Jackson

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. She was a semifinalist on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing,” and co-hosted three seasons of “Exhale,” a panel talk series on the ASPiRE television network.

Erin can be seen nightly in many of New York City's top comedy clubs, and her stand-up has been featured on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham,” OWN's "Wanda Sykes Presents Herlarious," and AXS TV’s “Gotham Comedy Live.” She's also appeared on MSNBC, NFL Network, truTV, VH-1 and TV Guide Network as a panelist on numerous sports and pop-culture shows.

A proud alumna of Howard University, Erin is obsessed with the Philadelphia Eagles.
