Episode 34 — Mia Jackson — Steppin’ On My Biscuits
Comedian Mia Jackson joins Jason for this episode of Learning to Fail. Jason met Mia for the first time when he hosted one of her first ever shows in Asheville. They talk about everything from how Mia got started in comedy to what it was like being a semi-finalist on Last Comic Standing to the preconceived notions people have of her comedy before she starts her set. Mia has come a long way since we recorded this interview. She’s been in several movies, toured stadiums with Amy Schumer and filmed her own half hour special for Comedy Central! We’re lucky we got her when we did because she is untouchable now. She’s just as kind and humble as ever, but she’s too dang busy workin’!
