Jackie Clarke is the original jack of all trades and has an act up her sleeve to suit every occasion. She is at home on stage in large musicals (Mamma Mia, Anything Goes, Sweet Charity, Mum’s the Word, Little Shop of Horrors, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat) and on screen (Showcase, Skitz, NZ Idol).
She currently sings with THE LADY KILLERS, JUBILATION GOSPEL CHOIR, THE KIWI ROCK ENSEMBLE HIGH, WIDE & HANDSOME and is a bona fide powerhouse diva in her own right.
Jackie has sung with WHEN THE CAT’S BEEN SPAYED, THE DARLINGS, MARCHING ORDERS and guested with DAVE DOBBYN, ANNIE CRUMMER, MIKA, L.A MITCHELL, DON McGLASHAN and many more. She’s also donned a flash frock to sing with all the major orchestras in New Zealand and been asked back.
Jackie is a popular MC and voice over/vocal artist and mum to two gorgeous sons, Stan and Ernie.
Unfortunately she can’t parallel park to save herself but apart from that, she’s awesome.
“Compered by the hilarious Jackie Clarke….. (who’s) energy was infectious throughout her performances.” - Sarah Clarke Xtreme Artwear Awards review Gisborne Herald
“We laughed. Oh how we laughed. Not polite theatre giggles but gut-gurgling, body quivering hysterics…..four kiwi co-stars – Tahei Simpson, Jackie Clarke, Michele A’Court and Rebecca Hobbs – were absolutely fabulous. The standing ovation was well deserved.” - Kirsty Macnicol Mum’s the Word review Southland Times
