Jackie "The Joke Man" Martling Headlines The Event Center at Live! Casino & Hotel Philadelphia on June 9
PHILADELPHIA (March 22, 2022) – Get ready for an outrageous night of comedy when comedian, radio personality, actor, author and singer/songwriter JACKIE “THE JOKE MAN” MARTLING makes his debut at the Event Center at Live! Casino & Hotel Philadelphia on Thursday, June 9, 2022.
Showtime is 8:00 p.m. Tickets are $25 and available for purchase now at Philadelphia.LiveCasinoHotel.com or AXS.com.
Born and raised on Long Island, New York, Martling began a career in stand-up comedy in 1979, developing a blue comedy act in local venues. He self-produced his first of three comedy albums, What Did You Expect? (1979), during this time. After becoming involved with Rick Dee’s radio show as a regular joke feature, Martling sent his albums to New York City radio personality Howard Stern, who invited him as a weekly guest and writer in 1983. This led to his hiring as head writer from 1986 to 2001. He released further albums during his tenure, including Sgt. Pecker (1996), Joke Man (1996), Hot Dogs +Donuts (1998). Since his departure from The Howard Stern Show, Martling has undertaken various projects, including acting roles in television and film, and continues to perform stand-up. From 2006 to 2014, he was the host of Jackie's Joke Hunt on Sirius XM Satellie Radio on Howard Stern's channel. He released his first music album, Happy Endings (2008). Martling has written two books, Disgustingly Dirty Joke Book (1998) and The Joke Man: Bow to Stern (2017).
Opening for Martling is Rich Harkaway, a local Philadelphia urologist by day and a comedian by night. While he has worked on both coasts and Las Vegas, he is a favorite in the New York and Philadelphia comedy scene. Harkaway has shared the stage with the likes of Jim Gaffigan and David Brenner. His unique style of storytelling and self-deprecating charm enables him to capture the approval of every crowd.
