Erin Jackson

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 TBS and IFC, and worked for both HBO and BET as a warm-up act for live comedy and awards specials. She was recently featured on TV Guide Network's "StandUp in Stilettos," and is currently touring the country as part of the "Pumps & Punchlines" theatre tour.

Jon started his comedy career in Washington, DC by pursuing stage time wherever he could get it. Over the past seven years, he has performed at comedy clubs, theatres, bars, coffee shops, bowling alleys, a bachelorette party, a ”naturist resort,” crab feasts, bar mitzvahs, birthday parties, corporate events, moose lodges, weddings, high schools, colleges, cafeterias, military bases and many more. These experiences helped forge a likeable character onstage with crossover appeal to a wide range of audiences.

Jon’s persistence and hard work has allowed him to work at some of the top clubs in the country performing with some of the nation’s top headliners including Ben Bailey, Carlos Mencia, Charlie Murphy, and the late Greg Giraldo. He was the 2006 winner of the DC Improv’s annual stand-up comedy competition; he has performed for our nation’s troops, and he can be heard regularly on SiriusXM Satellite Radio’s Comedy Channel.
