Clinton Jackson

Cultivating a career in clean comedy and living with yourself after guest-starring on Dharma & Greg are no minor tasks, but Clinton Jackson doesn’t come across like a man bearing a burden. The L.A.-based comedian/actor eschews the blue with style, relying instead on earnest energy and a knack for storytelling. Working clean has landed Jackson a half-hour Comedy Central special and an Aspen Comedy Festival performance, as well as appearances on some predictably mild television programs. But don’t worry if That’s So Raven doesn’t tickle the shit out of your funny bone — Jackson’s talented enough to make you forget what you loved so much about filth, anyway.
