When: Fri., Nov. 18 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 again, too, with a scheduled stop tonight in the House of Blues' Cambridge Room. We'll leave it up to you to guess what his show will be like. But we can tell you that tickets are $20 in advance, $25 DOS, and include a complimentary drink, warm-up laughs from Cleveland comedians Maria Borgia, Ramon Rivas II, and Andrew Pucella, and music by DJ Rocco Russo. Doors open at 8 p.m., and the funny stuff starts at 9. 21-and-over only. — Cicora 308 Euclid Ave., 216-523-2583, houseofblues.com.
