    “He’ll tip a total stranger,” Martling says, “but the people that got up at 4 o’clock in the morning for 15 years and put the funny in your mouth — why take care of them? Ah, who cares.”

    Poor Jackie - if only honest Howard had some control over what Jackie was paid, he could have stepped in to make sure those evil people at K-Rock took care of his bro.

    This is a good piece and thread but I just the title was a bit more descriptively salacious because this thread deserves attention. An on going theme we have on dawgshed (@SomerSky ) about SiriusXM and H100/101 playing other people's contributions and giving them shit. I wish you entitled this thread "Jackie Martling wants Howard 100/101 SiriusXM residuals from Howard!"

    Howard Stern show royalties? The joke’s on Martling

    It’s been 15 years since Jackie “The Jokeman” Martling exited Howard Stern’s radio show over money, and at age 68, the Jokeman is still looking for retirement cash.

    Martling says he’s got enough money to live nicely to age 75.

    “But with my luck, I’ll live to 95 and I’m going to be broke,” he jokes. “Every time you live a couple of more years, you look at your bank account to see if more interest has accrued, like, ‘Wow, I can push that (death) date back a little bit.’”

    Wait a minute. Martling’s work on the Stern show still plays on Stern’s best-of shows on Sirius/XM. How much money does Martling earn from Stern reruns?

    “Not a penny,” Martling answers.

    “People come up and say, ‘Man, that’s so nice, at least you’re retiring on that money from the best of.’ I do not get a (expletive) penny,” Martling says, then laughs in the same big way he laughed on Stern’s shows. “People can’t believe it.”

    By publicly commenting about money, Martling could be leading Stern to crack about this issue once more to co-host Robin Quivers, he says.

    “This’ll get back to him, and then Howard will say, ‘Robin, Jackie was whining he didn’t make enough money again.’ ”

    But I always heard Stern was such a good tipper.

    “He’ll tip a total stranger,” Martling says, “but the people that got up at 4 o’clock in the morning for 15 years and put the funny in your mouth — why take care of them? Ah, who cares.”

    Martling will make a little more cash in Las Vegas this weekend, performing Saturday at Orleans Arena’s “24/7 ComedyFest” with Bobby Slayton, Billy Gardell, Frank Caliendo, Brian Scolaro, Steve “Mudflap” McGrew, Tiffany Haddish and Lil Rey Howery. (Tickets: $40)

    By the way, Martling is not pretending he’s destitute.

    “Luckily, I saved just enough pennies from the Stern show to make myself a nice house on the water in Long Island,” Martling says.

    He just can’t splurge.

    “You know what (comic) Jackie Mason says: ‘I never have to work again, unless I want to buy something.’

    “You know the American way. In the back of your mind: ‘Oh, it would be nice to take a trip to Africa. It would be nice to go back to Amsterdam.’ ”

    Instead, Martling is on the road with his comedy buddies.

    And he’s grateful Sirius/XM, Pandora and Spotify play his album jokes on comedy channels.

    “I do gigs, and 30-year-old kids show up that know me from Pandora or Sirius/XM. I’m just the guy who tells the jokes. A real lot of them are Stern people, but a real lot of them aren’t,” Martling says.

    He has perspective, calling his time on Stern’s show a great life while it lasted. He just wishes Stern would have kept the original crew together.

    “It’s water over the dam, and it’s too much to go into, but I don’t know what the (expletive) Howard was thinking. I mean, we had the 1927 Yankees, and he just didn’t want to share the World Series money,” Martling says.

    Martling doesn’t listen to the Stern show. The last time Martling talked to Stern was two Christmases ago.

    “But two weeks ago, I got an email from him out of the clear blue sky, like, ‘Hey, I was watching TV, and this guy said his biggest influences in comedy were Eddie Murphy’s ‘Delirious’ and your first CD.’ ”

    Martling thought, “Well, that’s a nice thing to send.” Martling jokes that he wrote back “Thanks” and “P.S., could you send me some money?”

    Martling also tweets a daily afternoon joke at 4:20 (“marijuana time”) at @JackieMartling.

    “Some are funny. Some are disgusting. People tweet me back and tell me what a jerk I am, and it’s like, ‘Wow, I’m still on the show.’ It’s nostalgic.”

    Anybody who thought Jackie was getting residuals for reruns of his 15 years on the show really doesn't know Howard. (And I bet it still hasn't hit Robin that she won't be getting a cent when this contract ends, and Sirius licenses the archives from Howard Stern Productions for another 7 years.)

    I don't think Howard gives one shit about "tipping strangers" either -- for any other reason than he doesn't want them ratting him out to the NY Post or Daily News etc for being the marble-hoarding, self-serving tight-wad cocksucker he is.

    I bet more than half of his tipping scenarios are on the house or a write off anyway - with that 112 Productions and NSAL snake-oil hucksterism flim-flam-man bullshit.

    Also: I saw Jackie perform at the Riviera Comedy Club in Vegas back in 1997. After the show, Melrose Larry asked my roommate and me if we'd give him a ride back to his hotel. He gave me one of those signs he holds up as a thanks, and said he'd also give us a shout-out on the Stern Show. (He never did.)
