Comedy: Al Jackson

Al Jackson performs at Go Bananas.

“It was weird,” says comedian Al Jackson when asked about how he started in comedy. “I was teaching middle school, seventh grade public school in Miami. I had been teaching for four years and I wanted something to do at night. I started looking around and found an open mic.” Jackson had never told a joke in front of audience before, but he decided to give it a try. It went pretty well, so he stuck with it. “I knew I liked it, but I didn’t know if I had enough courage to do it again. Luckily I did.”
