I’m a huge Artie guy- always have been always will be. The radio he and Stern created was hands down the greatest of all time. Just absolutely honest, raw, hilarious conversation day in and day out. It didn’t matter if there was a guest or it was just Robin, Artie and Howard, it was always a “must listen” show. Some of the hardest times I’ve ever laughed was listening to Artie go off on people in the studio. So anytime I see a clip of him on the mic I get excited. Obviously, the vibe is much different now, but it’s still a thrill to see him on the ball. Especially when he’s sober.
Rogan broke out yesterday’s interview into clips so I’m going to post them all below and you can pick the ones you like. Personally, I think they’re all great. Here ya go…
“What Was Chris Farley Doing in the Bathroom with Andy Dick?”
“Artie On How He Helped A Tweaked Out Greg Giraldo Through A Roast”
“Comedy Is The Only Thing That Hasn’t Abandon Me.”
“Artie on what It’s Like To Kick Heroin”
“Artie On What Happened To His Nose”
Artie On Losing $145,000 In One Weekend and Being Addicted To Heroin”
“Artie On Why He Won’t Say He’ll Never Get High Again”
I don’t want to overwhelm you with too many clips even though I already have, but watch the full interview here. Plug it in on the ride home, listen to it on the treadmill, consume it however you have to. Artie Lange is officially BACK.
