Jackie Loeb was sensational! The crowd loved her! I can’t rave enough about her.
Jackie Loeb makes us laugh, if you want funny get Jackie. We do every year for ACON’s Great Debate, this woman can crack jokes about any topic, we know because we take the Jackie test every year!
Jackie Loeb had everyone in stitches. I nearly cried. Would definitely recommend her to others.
The crowd loved Jackie, who was extremely professional, organised and well spoken, as well as hilarious.
Jackie Loeb is a great singing performer who knows how to steer her unique, but very warm and charming, vocal style around a variety of different musical flavours to great effect.
-Sydney Star Observer
One of the top five comics.
-The Sydney Morning Herald
Loeb is, literally, a laugh a minute, but pointedly so. If visual art, literature and music can serve as powerful and influential political, social and cultural commentary so can comedy. But only if it’s this well-conceived.
-The Australian Stage
Sydney comedienne and singer Jackie Loeb is brilliant … Loeb uses her huge vocal range, guitar, keyboard and clever lyrics to create sharp, witty parodies.
Loeb’s impersonations of everyone from Tracy Chapman to Macy Gray are mini-masterpieces.
