How does Amy Jo Jackson only have 269 subscribers?
In my morning deep internet dive, I began with the best cast members of The Opposition: Aaron Jackson and Josh Sharp. The duo had me hooked months ago on their Funny or Die series “Ivanka and Jared.”
Quickly, that led me to the beautiful trio of Josh Sharp, Aaron Jackson and his sister, AMY JO JACKSON:
Broadway powerhouse ending YES! Helpful little YouTube sidebar led me to weird Mickey Mouse videos but also to the enticing title of “The Inevitable Sexist Medley.” After the first few minutes, I could only think of Roy Moore (and not just because of Jimmy Kimmel’s Roy Moore supporter segment). This is probably the best thing on her channel although everything deserves a watch.
From the same show, my nerd nerve was tweaked forever with an all female cover of “Feed Me (Git it)“ from Little Shop of Horrors.
Her range is way beyond mine but I relate to it. Even running karaoke for a few years, the male parts (such as Seymour or Hedwig from “Hedwig and the Angry Inch”) have always been easier and so much more fun for me. Like Steven Page from Barenaked Ladies. The genius is her delivery and choice (with collaboration) of songs, some troublesome Broadway classics.
Other Amy Jo Jackson hits
- Another Hundred Accents. Showing off her dialect coach and comedic talents
- He Touched Me/I Touch Myself mash-up. Because you can never have enough Streisand mentions.
- I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face. “But I’m a much forgiving man...” How we yearn to hear those lovely words from our beloved, “I’ve grown accustomed to her face.”
- Standing on the Corner. With only female singers and the current context of sexual harassment, yes.
The woman has a paragraph-long testimonial from SIGOURNEY WEAVER on her website! WEAVER-APPROVED!
How this woman has less than 300 followers on YouTube, I have no idea.
To end, a cover of Postmodern Jukebox’s version of Shake it Off, performed during A GAY SHOW FOR ALL PEOPLE with the whole family (including adopted brother Josh Sharp):
