PERFORMANCE SCHEDULE & TAPES

2012 Schedule

| 2011: January | February | March | April | May | June | July | August | September | October | November | December | 2013

The new millennium brought an even wider range of work for me than usual. As well as the normal school assemblies, libraries, recreation departments, folk/comedy venues and religious groups there were:
  • Speaking parts in two movies, one TV commercial and one radio commercial.
  • Residencies as "Rudyard Kipling" in his historic Vermont home.
  • Featured performer at Festivals in Maine, Massachusetts, Vermont, Missouri, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Minnesota, New York, Florida, Georgia,Wisconsin, New Mexico, and Utah.

Corporate/Conference engagements for:

  • Independent Computer Consultants Association
  • March of Dimes
  • Speech/Language/Hearing Association
  • Maine Resource Recovery Association
  • Legal Secretaries
  • Maine Health Department
  • Childrens Disability Services
  • Breastfeeding Education
  • Women-Infant-Children Nutrition Program

Weekly summer shows on Mount Desert Island:

  • "Jackson's Top Ten" revue of 10 family programs from a decade at Acadia Repertory Theatre.
  • "Nature In Action" at the College of the Atlantic Natural History Museum.
  • "A Dad's Eye View" - stages of parenting from "a twinkle in the eye" to baby's first steps

And my best gig ever! -- supporting role in the fathering of our Jillian Estelle (2000) and Avery Elazar (2003)

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.

AUDIO & VIDEO TAPES

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

THINKING ABOUT HIRING JACKSON? Ten-minute promotional video samplers are available on request for people wanting to preview Jackson for a business event. (Click here for background information on Jackson.)

Rudyard Kipling's "Just So" -- DVD
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. Stories include: How the Whale Got His Throat, How the Camel Got His Hump, How the Rhinocerous Got His Skin, and The Elephant's Child. 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.

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

"HAPPINESS IS A DECISION OF THE HEART"

This anthology includes the chapter, It Doesn't Get Any Better Than This, by Jackson Gillman, which shares his perspectives as a performing artist and family man. Featured is his humorous primer of "How to bring a sleeping child from car to bed without incident." Personalized copies are available directly from him for
$24.95 plus $1.05 shipping.

One of Jackson's many programs as a speaker/entertainer is "A Dad's Eye View." For anyone who has helped raise a child, he will have you laughing and sighing in recognition of the challenges and delights of child-rearing in this endearing
comedy/music revue.

"In his casual, extemporaneous-seeming style, Jackson captivated his audience with his new act. Interspersed throughout his engaging patter are songs Jackson has either written or collected to sing to his children or illuminate the parental condition. Very sweet, funny stuff, not to be missed. " - The Bar Harbor Times
