Jackie won Time Out New York’s Joke of the Year and according to The Comedy Bible, “Jackie wins over the crowd with her contagious energy. Jackie is fearless and patient. She keeps the energy up with every joke and she always delivers. She shines when being herself which is silly, relatable and disarming. She embraces universal humor that is genuinely entertaining to all audiences.”

Jackie does stand up at all major comedy clubs all over the globe as well as at recovery centers, jails, hospitals, and institutions. You may have seen her on Adult Swim’s “The Eric Andre Show”, Last Comic Standing, or Comedy Jam on Showtime.
