Jackie “The Joke Man” Martling
Comedy legend Jackie “The Joke Man” Martling put on a sold-out show at the Hyatt Regency in Princeton and showed no sign of rust or slowing down with side splitting entertainment from start to finish. He is the reason many people listened to The Howard Stern Show for fifteen years, until 2001. The argument since his departure is if the show is better or worse and it has never been properly resolved. Still eleven years after leaving, the location he sat in the studio is still referred to as Jackie’s chair, so that alone proves the contributions and undying influence he holds there even today. He currently has ties to Howard Stern again on Sirius – XM satellite radio channel Stern 101 airing a live comedy show every Tuesday at 7pm.
After putting on a spectacular two hour comedy show Jackie Martling opens the show up to the audience for Stump The Joke Man. This is no easy task as Jackie Martling is world renowned for being the man who knows every one-liner joke ever told. By performing Stump The Joke Man, he puts this talent on display by either embarrassing members of the audience who dare him to know their joke or literally putting his money where his mouth is by betting the person who asks the joke for a bet of their twenty dollars for his one hundred dollars that he will know the punch line.
One by one audience members tried to beat Mr. Martling’s challenge with each one going down in flames worse than the person before them. That was until the Bluejeanfoodcritic stepped to the plate. Not only am I a coinsurer of great food, I have been known to have a quick wit and sarcastic humor that lightens any mood. Putting my other talent on display, I yell out my joke. Mr. Martling yells out a response, but lo and behold it is the wrong one. The Bluejeanfoodcritic goes head to head with the world’s best and prevails. I am handsomely rewarded with the personally autographed item shown below, and leave the only winner.
