Later this became a weekly thing which later was turned into a segment in the Howard Stern show called the “Stump the Comedian”. It was a competition where the callers would start a joke, and Martling was challenged to provide them with a punch line; otherwise, they would win rewards!

In 1985 when the show was canceled, Martling was initially hired for two weeks and later for two months as a full-time writer for the same show as it became a morning show in February 1986.
