The story...

My Brush With the One and Only Jokeman!!!!

I met Jackie while hanging out at the bar after a show of his at Rascal's in W.Orange NJ. We were at the bar for what seemed like forever, waiting for the big drunk to appear, and eventually he did. The first thing he did was go over and kiss the bleached-blonde bartender. Then he proceeded to the back of the bar and planted himself down next to a group of chicks he started to socialize with.

My friend and I were ready to go at that point, so I made my way over to the Jokeman. I was a little hesitant at first, but he noticed me standing there and said, "How's it going?" I then shook the Jokeman's hand and proceeded to tell him that for me the funniest part of the show is after Howard says something funny and I hear his chuckle in the background. The Jokeman nodded and then kind of turned away before I was finished.

It was at that point where I realized that my brush with the Jokeman had come to an end. I was certainly star-struck and as a result I didn't wash the hand I shook his hand with for at least three days.
