More Information


Born Clinton Page Jackson in Oakland, Calif., Clinton is the youngest of three and the only son. An imaginative child inclined to perform, Clinton stood empty-handed at “Show & Tell,” told his jokes and officially claimed his identity as comedian at the age of 9.

Clinton honed his craft in San Francisco’s thriving comedy scene. As a stand-up, he has appeared on numerous national stand-up television shows, including his own half-hour special on Comedy Central and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.

As an actor, Clinton co-starred as the affable “Mezz Crosby” for two seasons on the WB’s Nick Freno: Licensed Teacher. He also made a cameo on the Disney Channel’s That’s So Raven as science teacher, Mr. Halloway. This was followed by a funny appearance on the Nickelodeon hit show iCarly.

Clinton’s guy-next-door appeal has also lead him to being cast in numerous national commercials for such companies as Jeep, Circuit City, 21st Century, AC Delco, Nissan, Subway and Old Navy.
