The following are some of the groups for which I'll be performing in the coming months. Public shows have a phone contact listed and it's always a good idea to call ahead as events are subject to change. Also, feel free to e-mail me if you are interested in attending any of the other presentations. Often, my performances are for private groups or functions, but whenever possible, I'll make arrangements for you to see a performance if you are considering a program. One live show is worth more than any # of words and how I get the vast majority of my work.

You can take home some of Jackson's memorable characters with audio and video performances available for purchase.

Rudyard Kipling's "Just So" -- Videotape
Rudyard Kipling, who loved to have fun with the English language, wrote his famous "Just So" stories for his "best beloved," his children. Ever since, these stories have been loved by generations of children and adults alike. In this series, Jackson re-tells the stories exactly as they were written and in a performance style that Mr. Kipling himself would love to hear and watch. Produced by Chip Taylor.

To order, contact Jackson by e-mail, or order on-line directly from Chip Taylor Communications, $25 plus shipping & handling, (one-time broadcast rights $99.99)

Downeast Ballads
by Ruth Moore and Others
Experience a memorable raft of characters from the Maine coast. Among others, there's Charley, who "sees some mighty strange things when is FUI (Fishing Under the Influence)," Old Randall, who everyone knew was "dumb as a hake," Sam, who thought he'd seen a German submarine, and Gray, who thought he'd seen his last. From "The Darker Side" of eerie fogs and loved ones lost at sea, to "The Lighter Side," a delightful compendium of spoken and sung ballads. Featuring the writing and musical talents of Ruth Moore, Gordon Bok, Benny Rehl, and others.

To order, contact Jackson by e-mail, $10 plus shipping & handling

Answering Machine Messages
If you've seen and heard Jackson's characters live, then you'll be sure to want one or more of his wacky alter egos to answer the phone while you're away. Greet incoming calls with Wolfman Jackson, comedic slices of favorite tv shows, or Shakespoof. Or, have Jackson create a special message just for you, your group or organization.
