At age 19, Jenelle Jackson walked into a bar with her favorite cousin during a comedy show. Neither one of them was old enough to be there, but the young Ms. Jackson didn't care. During the performance, she leaned over  and whispered: " I could do that." The comic overheard her and challenged her to come up. Without missing a beat Jenelle got up and rocked that mic like a pro!
