The Comedy Cabana, Myrtle Beach, May 1, 2010
Well, it has been (God, I hate that expression "has been"), up until now, as I've been crazed promoting snart, my new Oglio CD/DVD, since it was released on 4/20 (!). Truth is, snart is the reason Oglio Records created this page, because my Jackie Martling Facebook page is sold out, with 5000 friends. By the way, there's still room on facebook.com/jackiesjokehunt, which is fun, too...
Jackie Marlow, thespianic actor, spokesman for The 2010 Hoboken International Film Festival, holding Eddie Cantor's honorary Academy Award, presented to him by The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences in 1964...Marlow has the Oscar in his clutches courtesy of his good pal & Eddie's great-grandson, singer-songwriter Lee Newman...or, as Joe Franklin calls him, "Lou Neeman."
The funniest thing about the 4/20 release date (4:20 is universal light up the weed time) is that the original release date was April Fool's Day, but I got stoned and missed it.
In the last two weeks, I've done morning radio with Danny Bonaduce on 94 WYSP in Philadelphia, Jim Kerr's Rock & Roll Morning Show on Q-104 in New York City, Opie & Anthony & The Jay Thomas Show on Sirius-XM satellite radio, the WAVE with Tommy & Abbi in Myrtle Beach, my own Jackie's Joke Hunt on Sirius-XM, Waking Up With The Wolf on WPYX in Albany, & countless phoners with stations & web sites all over the world.

Unfortunately, The Howard Stern Show turned me down. They play me constantly on "Best Of," and on all the Stern history shows, rarely go a few shows without talking about me in some capacity...rarely very flattering, of course...& endlessly play my sound bites...but when I asked about doing The Howard Stern Show to promote my new Oglio CD, Fla Fla FloHeewie told me I couldn't come on, that "it was too soon since my last appearance." Ga Ga Gums just got a big book deal...congrats, Boo. You know I love you.
The Old Gang, 2005
Now, on this beautiful Saturday morning, I have time to say hi. I'm looking out at the ocean from way up in my suite in this hotel in the wild & wooly beach town of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
The sold-out audiences have been spectacular. After getting the girls on stage for "Stump The Joke Man" last night, I handed the camera to a girl at a front table, who had laughed her ass off all night, and asked her to take a picture of us.
"Stump The Joke Man"
The Comedy Cabana, April 30, 2010
When "Stump" and the show were over, I asked her to take another picture of the girls with me & their bounty...CD's & shirts...from playing the game. They were all great, it was a terrific round of "Stump The Joke Man."

This guy, Steve Marino, who's in the front every time I'm at The Comedy Cabana with his lovely wife, and who who claims my CD's helped him through chemo, not only stumped me with a great joke last night, but it's perfect for "Stump The Listener" on this week's "Jackie's Joke Hunt," number 173 (May 4th), "The Hairy Home Companion." So I won't be posting the joke until after we reveal it on our animal-themed show on May 11th, Jackie's Joke Hunt 174, "Fungle Jucking."
Steve & Jokie
Little did I know that the girl with the camera snapped away during "Stump." I found out when I got back to my room, after eating two dozen chicken wings with Jane Viscardi Brown, my high school girlfriend (1965!) who lives on the Meyer Baba compound here. I downloaded the pictures, and what a pisser...I laughed my ass off.
Candid fun...the girls are so cute...
They all love their tank tops...
The girls are always so much damn fun...
It's always fun...please come out some time?
This girl didn't laugh the entire show, and then she came on stage, told a filthy joke, and announced that she's my biggest fan...it's a strange bidness I is doing...she's Jennifer, and her and her boyfriend were great...
My favorite...and Layla's...my photographer must have aimed the camera down her blouse. Love my people, love them.
Tonight my pal Libby and his gang will be at the show. Libby and I were co-captains of the Oyster Bay High School soccer team in 1964-65, & worked together as waiters at a disco named "Rush" in 1970....
...and then "Rush" became a rock & roll club, "Rumrunner," where Chris Bates & I, "The Off Hour Rockers," would play to sold-out Tuesday nights from 1975-1978. Every drunk on The Glorious North Shore would be there...people still talk about those nights. Our 1955 bright yellow Cadillac hearse would be proudly parked by the stage door...it was surreal.
The film I did with Florence Henderson, "Venus & Vegas," will be screening at "The Hoboken International Film Festival" in June...what a hoot it'll be...
May 8th I'll be at The Record Collector Store in Bordentown, New Jersey, with the incredible Billy West...one big show...don't miss it...box office, (609) 324-0880
always a good time at Jackie's Joke Hunt
