The weather was a little chilly. I wore a skirt with a silk jacket casual dressy. I suggest just dress comfortably, there is no dress code bay area weather has a tendency of heat and/ warmth in the day and cools down in the evening so have a light jacket or sweater in the eveniongs!.

Description

Comedian Bio:

Brandon T. Jackson is a multifaceted young actor carving his own path in Hollywood. Earning critical praise at every step, he started out in stand-up and has evolved into a burgeoning young film star. This summer he just wrapped filming on the 2nd installment of the box office hit “Fox studio’s Percy Jackson & The Olympians.”

In 2010, Jackson starred in “Lottery Ticket” for Warner Bros. The action-comedy surrounds a group of friends living in the projects. After winning the lottery, they must find a way to survive a holiday weekend before they can cash in the winning ticket. Jackson is perhaps best known as Alpha Chino from the high-concept runaway hit “Tropic Thunder.” The ensemble cast also included Ben Stiller, Robert Downey Jr. and Black Jack. The role earned Jackson a Best Supporting Actor nomination from the Black Reel Awards and Daily Variety named him one of “10 Comics to Watch”.

Jackson won Black Reel’s 2006 Best Breakthrough Performance award for his part in “Roll Bounce” for FOX Searchlight and in 2011 Hollywood Reporter named him to their prestigious “35 under 35: Next Gen” list. Jackson’s talent for entertaining was apparent early on. By the age of 14, he was performing at his father’s church and was soon invited to perform at the famed “Showtime at the Apollo” and BET’s “Comic View.”

From there, Jackson and BET launched the “Teens of Comedy Tour,” showcasing the nation’s funniest teen comedians. He also hosted the “Up Close and Personal Tour,” featuring Chris Brown, Ne-Yo and Lil Wayne. Jackson would later host his own sketch comedy special, “The Brandon T. Jackson Show,” on The N Channel and was a series regular on Nick Cannon’s MTV sketch comedy show “Wild ’N Out.” Jackson grew up in Detroit with seven siblings and parents who were both pastors. He credits his sense of humor to both his father and his life straddling the fence between suburbia and the inner city. He now lives in Los Angeles.
