Why Maynard Jackson is the perfect person to write a political biography
- by admin
NEW YORK — Maynard Jackson, the famous comedian who was fired from NBC after the network suspended his sketch show after a video of him joking about killing people went viral, is coming to HBO.
Jackson, 56, will be the star of HBO’s “Sicko” biopic, which will premiere this fall.
The drama will center on the comedian and a fictionalized version of Jackson’s life, which he wrote and starred in.
He was fired by NBC for the sketch show, which was pulled from air after the video was released in 2015.
Jackson said he was fired because he was the wrong person to make the video.
He said he will continue to work on comedy, but that the HBO show will focus on the video of his “sicko.”
Jackson’s memoir, “SICKO,” was released last month.
He also wrote a memoir, titled “Sicker Than a Horse,” which was published in 2014.
