Jackson's Way

“Hi, I’m Chris John Jackson, international life coach, and I want to tell YOU about my sensational approach to love, life and finance. I call it Jackson’s Way, a simple, workable method of making the equation ‘love/money + property x mood = Gravy Train’ work on your terms and at your pace. I’m here to help YOU, and I want you to have a piece of my Way.”

Part theatre, part comedy, Jackson’s Way is a modern day parody of American motivational speakers and a satire on the world of self help and corporate jargon. Join Chris John Jackson for perhaps the most surreal hour you are likely to spend in a theatre.

Winner of the Perrier Award for Comedy 2004.

‘A veritable wizard, a virtuoso of the transcendently absurd. Like a magician pulling a rabbit out of a hat, he spins a wacky world of increasingly bizarre nonsense out of thin air, creating an exquisitely idiosyncratic worldview that is as funny as it is wonderfully weird. Mr. Adamsdale is a master of resonant quirkiness, and his 75-minute riff is remarkable for both its sheer inventiveness and its perfect pitch.’ The New York Times

‘This show is more than comedy. It plays with your intellect as well as your sense of humour….Jackson’s Way is simply the best, funniest, cleverest miracle of make believe.’ The Scotsman

‘He is a lovely genius.’ Audience member

Jackson’s Way was performed as part of the Edinburgh Fringe in 2004. Subsequently Chris John Jackson toured nationally and internationally to the Melbourne Comedy Festival and the Brits off Broadway festival at 59E59 Theaters in New York.
