About Jackie "The Joke Man" Martling

For 18 years, a fixture of radio and television's Howard Stern Show, comedian Jackie "The Joke Man" Martling, was born and raised in East Norwich in Long Island, NY. As he was accumulating the world's most extensive collection of jokes, Jackie toiled in the music business until abandoning it in 1979, saying farewell to his beloved trio, "The Off Hour Rockers," to give his punch lines a shot on the not-yet-existent Long Island comedy stages. 

To promote Long Island's first comedy show that he and fellow fledging comedian, Richie Minervini, partnered in producing at the bar-restaurant "Cinnamon" in Huntington, Long Island. In March 1979, he created a dirty joke line, "Use your finger! Dial (516)-922-WINE!," which has been an uninterrupted operation since 1979 (516-922-9463).

The jokes worked. Jackie released three self-produced 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" on his own label, OHR Records.

In 1982, after founding "Governor's Comedy Shop" in Levittown on Long Island and touring as a national headliner, on a suggestion from Washington DC comedy club owner, he blindly sent his 3 LP's to Howard Stern upon Howard's arrival at WNBC-AM  in New York City. 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, and as they say, the rest is history. Remarkable radio as well as show business history. 

Jackie left the Stern show in 2001 after fifteen-year run as head writer of the radio show, four television series, and three Pay-Per-Views. He’s released six dirty joke CD’s … “The Joke Man,” “Sgt. Pecker,” “Hot Dogs & Donuts,” Come Again?!,” F. jackie,” and “snart,” as well as three videos, five joke books and countless joke gadgets of all kinds, for children as well as adults.

He still works all around the country performing his solo act of rapid-fire filthy jokes and the classic finale, “Stump The Joke Man.” and guests on many of the top national radio shows and podcasts.

About Tommy Gooch

Tommy Gooch was born in Brooklyn and was raised, and still resides, in Staten Island, NY. His ranting, self-deprecating, family-oriented style of comedy has traveled and made him a crowd favorite for years. 

Tommy Gooch has headlined the Borgata Comedy Club at the Borgata Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey. He's been a guest on SiriusXM Satellite Radio & Time Warner Spectrum TV. Tommy is a regular at the world famous Broadway Comedy Club in New York City.
