With extensive experience performing in various medias, as well as being a well respected speaker/entertainer on the corporate circuit, Jackie’s career and reputation as one of Australia’s finest and hardest working comics continues to go from strength to strength.

In 2008, Jackie was invited to the USA to audition for the NBC show, "Last Comic Standing", which is televised to a global audience of millions. Due to her remarkable talents, Jackie was able to make it into the top 17 comics worldwide!  

A seasoned festival performer, Jackie has appeared at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, The Cracker Comedy Festival, The Great Escape, Girlfest, FEAST Cultural Festival, the Newtown Food & Wine Festival and Comedy All Stars at The Sydney Royal Easter Show. Most recently, in 2008, Jackie performed, "Not From Here" with fellow comic, Simon Kennedy at Sydney's Cracker Comedy Festival.  

Jackie is a sought after panelist whenever a comical point of view is required, and was a regular panelist on the television show, "Beauty And The Beast". In 2008, she appeared in the Cracker Comedy Festival debate, as well as the Mardi Gras debate.  

Not limited to straight comedy, Jackie utilizes her amazing vocal skills and acting ability to parody everyone from old favourite Shirley Bassey to contemporary superstars The Pussy Cat Dolls. This cabaret element led Jackie to win the prestigious Sorlies Cabaret Award, as well as gaining work as a singer / actor / songwriter on award winning television series Full Frontal.  

Jackie is an enthusiastic writer, having co written the short film "The Gluttons", in which she also played the lead role and the Trop-Fest short-listed film "Girls at Beach with Mum", which she also directed and composed the music for. "The Gluttons" was short-listed as a Trop Fest Finalist and has been screened at short film festivals across Australia. Jackie’s most recent film ‘Drought’ was a finalist in the 2007 Comedy Channel Short Film Competition, which toured across Australia. Jackie not only produced the film, but also wrote, directed, composed the music, acted in, operated camera 2 and even did the catering!  

In 2007, Jackie released her second CD, "I Am Really Lovely". An accomplished singer songwriter and multi instrumentalist, Jackie has played guitar, keyboards and drums in bands of varying styles and has composed music for several stage productions, TV pilots and short films.  

In addition to all the above, Jackie has appeared on many television shows, including: The Footy Show, The Midday Show, Channel [V], Stand Up Australia, and many more!  

"Her performance was electrifying, surprising and above all-completely hysterical. I haven’t laughed so hard in a long time. Her routine is fun, original, brilliantly clever and she will not only win you over with her wicked sense of humour…. but also the depths of her many talents!. You’d be utterly mad to miss her show!" - Johanna Griggs TV presenter Channel 7
