Jackie Martling

When: Fri., Feb. 11 2011

For 18 years, Jackie "The Joke Man" Martling served as head writer for The Howard Stern Show. His 1997 book was called Jackie Martling's Disgustingly Dirty Joke Book, and his website is jokeland.com. He also appeared in Stern's film, Private Parts, and in The Aristocrats, Penn Jillette's 2005 homage to the dirtiest joke ever. These days, Martling has his own Sirius-XM radio show — Jackie's Joke Hunt — and a recently released CD called Snart, containing 78 minutes of dirty jokes. Turns out, he's on tour, too, with a scheduled stop tonight in the House of Blues' Cambridge Room. We'll leave it up to you to guess what his shtick will be. But we will tell you that tickets are $50 in advance and $55 at the door, and that each ticket includes three drinks, warm-up laughs from Cleveland comedians Jim Tews and Andrew Pucella, and music by DJ Rocco Russo. Doors open at 8 p.m. and the funny stuff starts at 9. For tickets or more info, call 216-523-2583 or go to houseofblues.com. The House of Blues is at 308 Euclid Ave. — Cicora
