“Say Good Night Gracie!”
A tribute to George Burns
Portrayed by Jim Allen Jackson
Geo. Burns

From the cigar-smoking philosopher with the harebrained wife to God in the 1977 hit movie “Oh God” the genial humorist, George Burns, who lived to be 100, was all these things and much, much more!

Jim Allen Jackson’s presentation follows George from his early years in vaudeville to his marriage and partnership with Gracie Allen. On stage, radio, movies, and television George made the perfect straight man to Gracie’s offbeat observations. After Gracie’s retirement George went on to a career in television specials, club performances, and movie roles. The consummate entertainer and charmer made Americans laugh for over 94 years.

Jim’s performances include stories, sight gags, jokes, and observations from the life and experiences of Mr. George Burns.

Jim Allen Jackson is a member of both the Screen Actors Guild and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists. Jackson has a background in puppetry, cartooning, voice-over, stand-up comedy, and elementary education. He holds a Professional Clear Credential. Jim’s fun and educational live presentation are great for special events, lodges, parties, schools, scouts, and camps.

Also ask for Jim’s other characters. Stanley Beaker the silly scientist, Imagination the storyteller, Toony the cartoonist, Pioneer Pete the teller of tall tales, Corny the clown, Boris Boo the spooky story teller, Whinkie Elf teller of Christmas tales, and Uncle Sam the historical storyteller. Jackson also presents The Backwoodsmen, a tribute to Daniel Boone, Andrew Jackson, and Davy Crockett. Jim is proud to present tributes to legendary funny men Red Skelton and Don Knotts.
