About

Jim Allen Jackson CommercialI’m Jim Allen Jackson and as a comic actor it is my job to find the funny in all situations.  I’ve been fortunate enough to do this in a number of commercials, television shows, and web series such as Finest Hour, Are You Serious and The Quarter Lifers.

I have played everyone from a wacky self-absorbed brain surgeon to a quiet insecure college professor and everything in between!  I love playing physical comedy and transforming fully into any quirky character possible for a given project.

I have studied improv and sketch comedy with ACME Comedy Theater, John Michalsk, Martha Melinda, and Monkey Butler.  I’ve also studied stand-up comedy with Greg Dean, Tony Stone, and Stanly Myron Handelman.

I have been blessed to have been inspired by such classic comedians as Red Skelton, Lucille Ball, and Laurel & Hardy.  This has led me to create several one person shows where I paid tribute to legendary George Burns, Don Knotts, and my mentor Red Skelton.

I’ve had the honor of being happily married to my best friend and soul mate for a number of years.  We have known each other since I first tripped in the door of our high school drama class.  We have been having FUN ever since!!!

I am currently co-producing the new wacky web series Walter Walters Presents.  Where I play a would be journalist with a horrific speech impediment.  Who travels in search of his next big news story that will hopefully land him on network television or at least on an unknown cable channel.  With only his best intentions, he finds his interviewees to be more inept than he is.
