Mini Bio (1)

Victoria was raised in a Bible-believing, piano-playing, gymnastic home with no TV. Her dad was a gym coach so she competed in gymnastics from age 5 to 18. Was a cheerleader and a homecoming queen. Attended Florida Bible College; received a gymnastic scholarship to Furman University, attended Auburn University one year and ended up in Hollywood, California via summer-stock in Birmingham, where she met Johnny Crawford (The Rifleman). Crawford sent her a one-way ticket to the show-biz capital and put her in his night club act. Supporting herself as a cigarette girl and as a typist at the American Cancer Society, and waitress at The Kipling Retirement Hotel, she performed stand-up comedy for two years until Johnny Carson put her act (which consisted of her doing a handstand while reciting poetry) on national TV. Following her 22 appearances with Johnny, she starred in many movies and TV shows, most notably, Saturday Night Live (1986-1992).

In 1991, she re-united with her high school sweetheart, married him, and moved to Florida where he was a police helicopter pilot. She raised a family and recorded two children's album, "Ukulele Lady," and "Ukulele Ditties for Itty Bitty Kiddies," by Choo Choo Records, and produced a collection of her original songs, "Use Me," by Birdie Singer Publishing. In 2012, Jackson's husband retired and they followed their grown daughters and grandchildren to Nashville where Jackson continues to perform her songs and stand up onstage. She still does an occasional movie or TV show, most recently she appeared in "Matchbreaker" on Netflix, and played the wife of Eric Estrada in the Pureflix sitcom, "Malibu Dan Family Man," 2018.

Jackson authored "Is My Bow Too Big?" in 2012, published by White Hall, and she authored "Lavender Hair," published by Broadstreet, about her breast cancer journey and recovery in 2017. She is in pre-production for a reality show about her singing at the Grand Ol' Opry.
