Victoria Jackson grew up in a Bible-believing, piano-playing, gymnastic home with no TV. Her dad was a gym coach, so she competed in gymnastics from ages 5-18, then attended Florida Bible College, Furman University on a gymnastic scholarship, and Auburn University.
During Birmingham, AL, summer stock, she met Johnny Crawford (The Rifleman) who promptly put her in his night club act and sent her a one-way ticket to the show-biz capital, Hollywood, CA
Supporting herself as a cigarette girl, a typist at the American Cancer Society, and a waitress at a retirement hotel, she performed stand up comedy for 2 years until “The Tonight Show” starring Johnny Carson put her act (which consisted of her doing a handstand while reciting poetry) on national TV. Following her 20 appearances with Johnny, she starred in numerous films and TV shows, most notably six seasons on “Saturday Night Live.”
In 1991 Jackson re-united with and married her high school sweetheart, Paul, a Miami, FL, police helicopter pilot. While living and raising her two daughters in South Florida, Jackson attended Palm Beach Atlantic University, receiving her B.A. in 2007.
Jackson continues to appear on-stage and on-camera, most recently in the romantic comedy, Marriage Material.
Currently a journalist with Liberty Alliance, Jackson is working to restore America to the Constitution and America’s founding principles, Judeo-Christian values. She appears on TV and radio, with recent appearances on Joy Behar Show and Howard Stern to discuss her autobiography, Is My Bow Too Big? How I went from SNL to the Tea Party.
