“Jackson’s Way is simply the best, funniest, cleverest miracle of make believe.” The Scotsman

26(.2) Jackson's Ways in 26(.2) Jackson's Days

Jackson’s Way is a satire on the world of self help and corporate jargon, but so much more...

“Hi I’m Jackson, and ten years ago I got excited…”

JACKSON’S BACKSON!  Will Adamsdale’s Perrier Award winning life coach character undertakes his most ambitious project yet: touring 26(.2) London venues in 26(.2) days, on a marathon trip to bring Jackson’s Way his hilarious gospel of self helplessness to the peoples of London Town.

“…I just can’t wait to tell you about a new approach to love, life and finance that everybody’s talking about! It’s called 'Jackson’s Way' and it’s a simple, workable method of making the equation 'love/money + property/mood2=WINNING' work on your terms and at your pace!”

Join Chris John Jackson for perhaps the most surreal and funny hour you are likely to spend in a theatre. 


Winner of the Perrier Award for Comedy 2004.
