Jackie Arko

Originally from Medina, Ohio, Jackie has been performing on stage in some capacity for over 15 years. After graduating from Boston College with a degree in Theater Arts, she began taking classes at ImprovBoston in 2007 and has been involved with improv and sketch comedy ever since. She is a proud cast member of the IB Harold team Maxitor, a member of the improv super group Bearcats, and a founding member of the now-retired sketch comedy troupe The Dowry. She has also performed in various other ImprovBoston productions such as Camp, Manthorne and the Baron, Jackie And Hannah Under the Stars, and many others. Jackie co-produces and co-hosts The Kerfuffle, a family-unfriendly variety show featuring Boston's best comedians getting weird. She teaches the Harold at ImprovBoston and has performed in and taught workshops at various comedy festivals on the East Coast and beyond. Last but certainly not least, Jackie is a founding member, producer, and performer with Fine Line Comedy, which produces some of the city's freshest and most unique comedy acts today. The way to Jackie's heart is through bourbon, dogs, and the Black Keys.
