Wack Pack Member Hosts Karaoke at PhillyÂ?s Irreverent BBQ Spot The Smoked Joint

On May 24 The Smoked Joint’s Tuesday Night Rock N Roll Karaoke and Revue will have a guest host, none other than Howard Stern Show favorite Captain Janks. PA native Captain Janks has made his name as a Phony Phone Caller since his first call during the OJ Car Chase. His Modus Operandi is to call in during live news coverage and insert any number of “Howard Stern-isms”. Much controversial hilarity often ensues.

It has been said that Captain Janks and his protégés have changed the face of news coverage, as we know it. Phony Phone Callers have been the among the first to publicly challenge the truthfulness and sincerity of the TV Media, a topic much at the forefront of today’s media circus. The Captain has recently come out of retirement and has a new CD to promote, as he will do during his appearance at The Smoked Joint, A Barbecue Experience.

The newest Captain Janks CD is a compilation of greatest hits and new material. The new CD, slated for release at the end of the month, holds a first ever recording of the now infamous Dan Rather call. Captain Janks somehow managed to insert himself between Dan Rather and A CBS Correspondent during a live broadcast from the Iraqi/Kuwait Border and with a gleeful shout of “Ba ba Booey, You Idiot” disrupted the broadcast.

During Tuesday night’s Rock N Roll Karaoke and Revue Janks will be holding a Howard Stern Trivia Contest with 15 of his soon to be released CDs as prizes. Additionally he will be available to make cranks calls for fans to their friends, family, co-workers etc. For Howard Stern fans this is an opportunity not to be missed!!

The Smoked Joint, A Barbecue Experience is owned and operated by ex-pat New Yorkers and long time Howard Stern fans Keith Gertler and Michael Berman. When approached by Captain Janks it seemed a natural fit. Penn Law Grad Michael Berman is also known as The Bermanator in competitive eating circles. He competed in the 13th annual Wing Bowl dressed as a giant be-crowned chicken and was a frequent guest on WIP’s morning show during football season. Gertler and Berman's much touted barbecue spot, a favorite of frequent take-out patron, Governor Ed Rendell, is known for its controversial tag lines nearly as much as for Gertler’s prowess in the art of smoking meats.

The Smoked Joint’s Rock N Roll Karaoke & Revue, KJ’ed by Nick of Xtreme Entertainment tales place every Tuesday night from 9:30 to 2am. On May 24th Jack Daniels will be holding a special promotion featuring give-aways, drink specials and in true Howard Stern tradition shot girls. The kitchen will be open until 1 am and will be offering food specials such as SJ Nachos, Jumbo Dry Rubbed Smoked Wings and the signature Smoked Ribs with Sweet Potato Fries.

Tuesday night is an opportunity to eat well, drink well, laugh well and sing as well as you can.
