One of my favorite comedians is Artie Lange. He was one of the original cast members on the first season of Mad Tv, but is known more as a talent on the Howard Stern Show. (no longer on Stern) I had the opportunity to see him live about a year before he attempted suicide. Luckly he survived and can be found in any airplane bathroom having a piss with Newt Gingritch and Satan.
I hope he can put together another set of stand-up and hit the road soon. If he can make a come back, he could very well be the Keith Richards of stand-up. And that's a complement Artie!
Here he is on Joy talking about The Howard Stern Show, Newt Gingritch and Satan
