For the first time, Jackie "The Joke Man" Martling opens up about his life as a cast member and head writer for the comedy powerhouse The Howard Stern Show. In The Joke Man: Bow to Stern, Jackie tells of his beginnings as a working comedian and writer and his climb to the top on The Howard Stern Show. Jackie saw it all, and in The Joke Man: Bow to Stern he shares personal stories as well a look from behind the scenes at one of the highest-rated radio shows of all time.

I found this book astounding, especially the use of big words. I didn't know Jackie knew them.

This book is a warm and honest retelling of his life story, an interesting one at that.

And you don't have to be a Howard Stern fan to enjoy it.
