Thursday, October 2nd - Jackson Gillman
About Jackson Gillman: "Stand-Up Chameleon" Jackson Gillman magically transforms himself into a wide array of eccentric characters through his many talents as mime, actor, songsmith and storyteller. As adept with children as he is with adults, his interactive performances are seasoned with skillful dialect, song, dance, mime and sign language. Shining through Jackson's wit and extraordinary versatility is his bemused, warm-hearted honesty. Jackson's humor evolves from finding that which is funny in human beings trying to be human and often tripping over their own being in the attempt.
In 2013, Jackson was featured at the National Storytelling Festival in Tennessee for the fourth time. He has thrice been Teller-in-Residence at the International Storytelling Center and has performed at festivals and schools throughout the country. For twenty years Jackson hosted a summer concert series of comedy, music and New Vaudeville on Mount Desert Island. Presenting a new thematic program each year, he set up comedy/music shop every summer and toured the rest of the year. Year-round he now brings his unique brand of one-man theater to diverse audiences across the nation. Whether performing on concert stages, at colleges, business functions, festivals, school assemblies or libraries, Jackson Gillman delights his audiences with his inventions while touching them with his personal warmth.
With performances for groups large or small, of all age ranges, Jackson incorporates comedy, drama, music, dance, mime, and sign language into his own intimate style of theatre. Being in the business of speaking and performing since 1978 has given Jackson an enormous amount of material from which to draw as he customizes an engaging program for any event. Jackson believes that humor can enliven and enlighten any group, meeting, or gathering, and his is based on a foundation of beneficence, hope, and a belief in the enduring power of the human spirit.
Whether for a professional group meeting or school assembly, nightclub audience or small group, Jackson's performances are always delightful, magical, inspiring, spellbinding, and thoroughly enjoyable.
