“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.”
