Jackie "The Joke Man" Martling

While touring as a national headliner, Jackie "The Joke Man" Martling released three comedy LPs, 1979's What Did You Expect?, 1980's Goin' Ape! and 1981's Normal People Are People You Don't Know That Well. He blindly sent the LPs to Howard Stern upon Howard's arrival at WNBC-AM in New York City and Howard called him to make a guest appearance on his radio show. In 1986, Jackie became a full-time cast member and the head writer of Stern's show.

Jackie left the show in 2001 after a fifteen-year run as head writer for the radio show as well as four television series and three Pay-Per-View specials. He's released five dirty joke CDs, three videos, five books and is currently being seen in the red-hot comedy documentary The Aristocrats and over a dozen other independent films. He has owned and operated a dirty joke line for the last twenty-seven years and he wrote the joke page for Penthouse magazine for seventeen years.
