Victoria Jackson Career

Acting and comedy

While doing summer stock theater in Alabama, Jackson met with former child actor Johnny Crawford of the television series The Rifleman from the 1950s, who cast her in his act of nightclub. In 1981, she moved to Los Angeles, working on various day jobs and performing nighttime comedy. Her first big break was an appearance at Johnny Carson’s The Tonight Show, where she recited poetry while making a handstand. She appeared twenty times on the show. She appeared in the W*A*L*T*E*R pilot in 1984, a M*A*S*H spin-off that was not picked up by the networks.

Following a role in Half Nelson’s short-lived 1985 TV series, Jackson received an audition offer for Saturday Night Live’s cast. Because her audition had not gone well, she performed several impersonations on her next appearance at the Tonight Show and sent the tape to Lorne Michaels of SNL. Michaels asked Jackson to join the show after watching the tape. A regular cast member from 1986 to 1992, Jackson frequently appeared in the weekly Weekend Update segment of the show as a correspondent who would go off the subject, recite poetry and do backbends or handstands on the desk. She was also known for repeated skit roles where Roseanne Barr or Zsa Zsa Gabor would be impersonated.

Jackson was cast in a number of movies during her tenure on SNL, including Baby Boom, Family Business, I Love You To Death, UHF, The Pick-up Artist, The Couch Trip, and Casual Sex? After her departure from Saturday Night Live in 1992, her film career continued, but mostly in unknown or unnoticed films. She was cast as the leader of her own sitcom on television, co-starring George Clooney. The show was scrapped without broadcasting when there was a change in management at Fox. In 1994 she appeared as “Beverly” in the “Good Cop, Bad Cop” episode of In the Heat of the Night and in 2000 she appeared as the unwanted love of a small-town man who could control the weather in the episode of The X-Files “The Rain King”.

Jackson played a regular role in the Nickelodeon show Romeo! seasons 2003–04. She played roles in two romantic comedies in 2004 and 2005, Shut Up and Kiss Me! And her little thing. Jackson appeared on the Hollywood Squares game show during this period and took part in the Celebrity Fit Club show. She played several characters in Campin ‘ Buddies ‘ 2014 direct-to-video movie.


In productions such as the 2007 Christian comedy concert Thou Shalt Laugh 2: The Deuce and a dozen times on Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher as the “token religious conservative,” a self-described conservative Christian, Jackson appeared. Through appearances at events as well as her website, which was affiliated with the Liberty Alliance, she supported the Tea Party movement.

In October 2008, she appeared in a National Republican Senatorial Committee advertisement poking fun at Al Franken, a fellow Saturday Night Live alumnus running for the U.S. Senate from Minnesota, along with other celebrities on The O’Reilly Factor.

Jackson said she believed Barack Obama was a communist at the beginning of 2008. She spread conspiracy theories about the religion of Obama in 2015, saying that he was an “Islamic jihadist” who supported the Islamic State, that he had members of the Muslim Brotherhood in his cabinet, and that Obama’s support for legal abortion and same-sex marriage showed that he was not a Christian.

In 2011, Jackson wrote that because of her conservative views she thought she was being spied on. She criticized Glee’s television show for showing a kiss among two male actors, citing the Bible to justify her criticism. Jackson, accused of homophobia, countered that the label was merely a “cute liberal buzzword” and suggested replacing Glee with a show promoting celibacy.

After Todd Akin’s remarks about rape-related pregnancies in 2012, Jackson said, “If I got raped, I’d have the baby. And if I didn’t want to keep it because I had these horrible nightmares, I’d take it out. But I think God can turn a bad thing into a good thing, and if I got raped and a beautiful innocent baby was born out of it, it would be a blessing.”

In 2014, in Williamson County, Tennessee, Jackson filed a petition as an independent candidate for one of two seats in District 2. She received 632 votes, not enough against the incumbent candidates to secure either seat. In 2017, Jackson wrote an article announcing that she was dropping out of politics. The article blamed her politics for her lack of career success and also promoted her book.
