Sparkling with energy, wit and whimsy, “Stand-Up Chameleon” Jackson Gillman engages and delights audiences of all ages through his many talents as songsmith, comic, mime and storyteller. Dozens of different shows, many nature-oriented, are described on his web site, with references galore. While the themes vary, they are all highly visual, energetic and interactive. He has been a featured performer at festivals across the country, and is a seasoned emcee. Easy-going and flexible, he is a master at customizing humor to enliven and enlighten any group. And when all is said and sung, it is apparent that there is an underlying foundation of beneficence, hope and spirit infusing all of his work.
I had Jackson come over for my son’s 7th birthday. I cannot even put in words how much we enjoyed having him over. He is so full of energy and enthusiasm. His stories and performance was just phenomenal and kept engaged kids and grownups. He has a great ability to judge the crowd, quickly understand their liking, and then twist the gig to cater the crowd of all age. There was lot of variety in his stories that made all of us laugh and dance to his tunes. Jackson is very accommodating, punctual and responsive. On top of all he is a very thoughtful kind man and I would highly recommend him if you want to have a memorable event for your family or friends.
Jackson came to my home on Christmas Eve as a surprise storytelling. He was engaging, captivating, and held my family's attention (of all age groups) during his story (which is an amazing accomplishment since my family is basically a basket of feral cats). Everyone loved the story and Jackson and the whole event added a welcome addition to our festivities. Jackson was very responsive in the lead up, on time, and kind.

This client had a specific idea and I especially enjoy customizing entertainment. It was a pleasure providing it and GigSalad was instrumental in connecting us.
