Jackie "The Joke Man" Martling
Martling began his show business career as a musician on Long Island, New York, playing with an original music and comedy trio. Jackie's breakthrough into major radio came in 1981 when longtime writer/producer of the Rick Dees Morning Show on KIIS-FM, Los Angeles, Dave Lipson, discovered Jackie's "Use Your Finger! (516) 922-WINE" telephone service. Each day's offerings were recorded and aired daily on the Dees morning show, eventually leading to Jackie recording daily joke segments just for Dees' shows. That's when Dees suggested Jackie be referred to on his show as "The Joke Man."
A guest appearance on Stern's radio show in February 1983 led to his eventual hiring as a cast member when the show moved to morning drive on K-Rock in 1986.
Martling has appeared in many films during his career, including the comedy documentary The Aristocrats
