Jackie Jokers is a supporting character of the Richie Rich comic book franchise from Harvey Comics. He is marked by a black bowl haircut.
He debuted in 1973 in his own eponymous title, before being canceled and replaced by the title Richie Rich and Jackie Jokers later that year. He and his similar-looking father, Jerry Jokers, are both stand-up comedians. Also featured is Ben Booker, Jackie's talent agent. In every issue of Richie Rich and Jackie Jokers, a featured story would always show Jackie doing a parody of current movies, TV shows, or commercials.
Jackie debuted in his own title, Jackie Jokers #1, dated March, 1973. A complete supporting cast came with him — his parents, Jerry and Jill Jokers (also show-biz folks, who gave him his start in the business); his cousin and rival, Rhett deStarr (apparently everybody in his family was a star); a girlfriend named Candy; his fun-loving Uncle Trickster, who liked to play practical jokes; and his agent, Ben Booker. By the way, Jackie looked exactly like Jerry, only shorter.
Jackie's main forté was supposed to be stand-up comedy, but he could also do impressions, song-and-dance routines, acting, and just about anything else a person might do to entertain others. His humor was the sort a child might take from a used joke book to get a laugh from fellow denizens of the playground, but it seemed to please his fictional audiences. At any rate, it led to his being recognized wherever he went. Among those who apparently knew him were caricatures of Frank Sinatra, Clint Eastwood, and even Richard Nixon, whose disgrace hadn't yet climaxed.
