Jackie 'The Joke Man' Martling at The Stanhope House at Catch Catch On Tour

jackie_the_joke_man_martling_2.jpgWhat can we say about the legendary "Joke Man?" He is a true original.

Jackie “The Joke Man” Martling was one of the pioneers of the emerging Long Island comedy scene of the 1970's that spawned such other luminaries as Eddie Murphy and Rosie O'Donnell. One of the most popular club acts on Long Island soon brought his unique brand of good time, party atmosphere joke telling to clubs around the nation and was an instant success.

Soon after, Jackie's amazingly quick comedic mind and joke writing ability came to the attention of radio DJ, Howard Stern and, as they say, the rest is history. Jackie has been one of the driving creative forces that helped Howard Stern attain his position as "King of All Media." Even after leaving the "Howard Stern Show" in 2001, Jackie continues to contribute mightily to Howard's ever growing success and popularity.

But to truly understand what makes "The Joke Man" so special, you must see him live, performing his standup act in a special evening of belly laughs and good times that you will not soon forget!
