After graduating 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 city’s youngest headliners.
He has since appeared on many stand-up comedy television shows including his own stand-up special Comedy Central Presents: Clinton Jackson and a guest appearance on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on CBS.
When not headlining his own shows, Clinton has been the opening act for such notable artists as Aretha Franklin, Diana Ross, Donna Summer, Dennis Miller, Chris Rock, and Steven Wright. Clinton has recorded and released two full length comedy CDs Nuff Said and Do You See The Ducks Now, both of which are regularly featured on Sirius Comedy Radio.
Following an acclaimed showing at HBO’s prestigious Aspen Comedy Festival Clinton was cast in a series regular role on the WB’s Nick Freno. Guest appearances on family friendly networks The Disney Channel and Nickelodeon showcased Clinton’s trademark guy-next-door appeal. Recent television appearances include Starz’ Blunt Talk, CW’s Jane The Virgin, ABC Freeform’s Young And Hungry, and Comedy Central’s The Daily Show. Clinton has also starred in numerous national commercials. Stand-up remains Clinton Jackson’s first love and greatest passion.
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 is good natured, clever, and engaging with a unique point of view, earning him the respect of hispeers and giving him a broad crossover appeal.”
