a drag queen, a bookworm, and a fiery Italian-Jew walk into a bar...
Jackie Abbott is a New York City actor and artist, born in Stamford, Connecticut
*She left years before "The Maury Show" moved in
Jackie has always possessed an innate curiosity and explored many careers in her childhood, mostly via fingerpainted portraits and shoebox dioramas
*Which her parents refuse to throw away and so use to insulate their attics
On her FIRST ever audition for a MAJOR role, she BOOKED it!!!
*It was Elizabeth Proctor in her high school production of The Crucible
**She truly peaked at age four when she got a toy microphone for Christmas and
made her living room debut as the youngest ever Grizabella in a tearful rendition of
"Memory" from Cats; it exists somewhere on VHS
She graudated from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts with her BFA and sense of play intact
*She cried a lot during her clowning class
Dubbed a cheeky firecracker by her professors, Jackie is as passionate as she is a goofball
*She serves sarcastic quippy commentary and pauses for response
