No Joke, Jackie “The Joke Man” Martling Debuts The Jackie Button for iPhone
Pull Something Funny Out of Your Pocket
What do you get when you cross an iPhone developer with legendary joke teller Jackie “The Joke Man” Martling? You get more jokes and infamous Jackie sounds on your phone than you ever thought possible for $0.99.
Bolt Creative, the team behind best-selling app Pocket God, today announced the release of The Jackie Button, the first app featuring the very funny jokes and sounds of Jackie Martling. Head writer of The Howard Stern Show for 15 years (1986-2001), and now host of his own show on Sirius Satellite Radio, Jackie's Joke Hunt, the stand-up comedian has partnered with Bolt, bringing his content and voice to The Jackie Button for iPhone and iPod touch.
Of his decision to work with Bolt Creative’s Dave Castelnuovo, Martling remarked: "With his Pocket God one of the best-selling iPhone apps of all-time, if anything can be called the best of all-time when the whole platform has only been around a few minutes relatively speaking, the whole world wants to work with Dave Castelnuovo. But I got him. Why? Simple. Dave wanted me because he's a huge Howard Stern fan and he knows I once met Howard Stern. And he got me because I was dying to meet someone with the last name 'Castelnuovo.'"
At launch The Jackie Button will feature 68 PG-rated jokes and 68 wacky sounds and phrases reminiscent of Jackie's many years on The Howard Stern Show. New jokes and sounds will be added every few weeks, so the fun will never stop! The Jackie Button will literally grow in your pocket into the ultimate collection of jokes to read, howl at, and re-tell.
A few simple, customizable buttons put the library of jokes and sounds at your fingertips, so you can easily find and play your favorites. Other apps have jokes for you to read, but only The Jackie Button has Jackie Martling telling you jokes.
The Joke Man added: "The bottom line? I like fun. I like to have fun, I like to cause fun, and I like to share fun. And the essence...in fact, all The Jackie Button is...is fun. If you don't believe me, go nuts and risk the 99 cents. If it doesn't make you laugh out loud, there's something wrong with me."
Available now for download at the iTunes App Store for the iPhone and iPod Touch, The Jackie Button retails for $0.99
