TV 101: Three reasons why I loved Artie Lange's complete dismantling of Joe Buck

by Jay Black, posted Jun 17th 2009 7:03PM
Artie LangeMonday night, Artie Lange went on Joe Buck's awful new show Joe Buck Live and did to him what Keyser Soze did to the Hungarian gang in The Usual Suspects.

If you didn't see it, let me tell you this much: Artie didn't kill the show; it was already dead when he got there. What he did was the equivalent of finding a dead squirrel (with awful, frat-boy hair), filling it full of firecrackers, then cackling gleefully as the guts rained down onto Jason Sudeikis and Paul Rudd.

Artie Lange's appearance on Joe Buck Live was boorish, crude, mean-spiritied, and blatantly homophobic. It was the kind of thing that'll probably end the career of the poor person who booked him on the show.

It's also something that we need a hell of a lot more of...

Artie Lange has been booted from HBO

by Brad Trechak, posted Jun 17th 2009 2:03PM
Artie LangeThe New York Post reports that Artie Lange is no longer welcome to appear on HBO Sports or Joe Buck Live. I'm not sure if that ban extends to the entirety of HBO. For those of you that missed his, to say the least, controversial appearance, TV Squad had it covered but sadly the video was taken down.

Considering the company that Artie keeps on Sirius Satellite Radio, being banned should not be a foreign concept to him. No doubt they'll talk about it on Howard Stern's radio show for days on end.

Celebrity Jeopardy
(S34E23) Wow. Way to go, Will Ferrell. Maybe they should just bring back Saturday Night Live alumni for season finales from now on, because this episode was spectacular. Ferrell brought back some old favorites and a slew of famous faces, from the familiar to the inexplicable, including Amy Poehler, Tom Hanks, Anne Hathaway and Artie Lange. Here are some video highlights from the evening (Hulu vids are US only. Sorry, kids... you can also watch these videos at NBC's website).

Artie Lange news: He'll be a guest on Rescue Me

by Joel Keller, posted Mar 6th 2007 4:24PM
Artie LangeI don't know why I'm so fascinated by Artie Lange's career. Maybe it's because I listen to him every day on Howard Stern's Sirius radio show and I get a daily dose of Lange's everyguy persona and funny wisecracks. I'm also fascinated by the fact that, while he's doggedly determined to be a success in his comedy career, he is pretty much unable to resist just about every temptation known to man, from drugs to gambling to food to booze. Yet, no matter how addicted he is, he is so open about his life that he's been able to endear himself to the show's fans, and his career has taken off as a result.

Case in point: he announced this morning that he'll guest star on six episodes of Rescue Me this season, playing a fireman buddy of Denis Leary's character of Tommy Gavin. Perhaps this is part of the development deal Lange signed with FOX last year, as the show is on FX. But it may just be a part of the fact that, no matter what he gets into in his personal life, producers know that Artie has a following and can deliver a good performance. Either way, it's good to see him getting more and more work. He just needs to get some sleep and stop being so "sick," as he has been lately.

The Knights of Prosperity almost included Artie Lange

by Joel Keller, posted Jan 3rd 2007 4:44PM
In our effort to give the public every little bit of Artie Lange news possible, listeners of Howard Stern's Sirius show have been learning over the last few days that he was offered a role on ABC's comedy The Knights of Prosperity, but turned it down.

Which role, you might ask? Well, I'll leave that for you to guess, but here are some clues: Artie told Howard that they were looking for a "New Jersey/New York" guy, with the requisite accent and regular-guy manner. So, either watch tonight's premiere or go to the show's website and figure it out. There seems to be conflicting stories as to why he turned the show down: executive producer Rob Burnett told Howard 100 News that it was due to "scheduling difficulties", but Artie just didn't think the concept was going to fly. Burnett told the Howard 100 folks that he hopes to have Artie on later in the season; maybe the crew will try to rob him instead of him being one of the robbers.

Watch Howard Stern and Jimmy Kimmel make out (virtually) - VIDEO

by Bob Sassone, posted Dec 18th 2006 5:32PM

Jimmy KimmelWell, this is...interesting.

Howard Stern continues his TV talk show tour to promote his Sirius radio show, and last week appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, but not in the same studio as Kimmel. At first it looks like Stern is sitting down in the chair next to Kimmel's desk, but you quickly realized that Stern is in New York City (Kimmel tapes in L.A.) and is sitting in front of a green screen to make it look like he's with Kimmel. You also figure out what's going on once you see Stern and Kimmel attempt to kiss and they can't quite line up their, um, tongues.

Stern also gives Kimmel a free Sirius Stiletto radio. He did the same thing on Letterman last week. I wonder if Dave and Paul feel cheap now? Video after the jump! (Note: the video also includes a 90 year-old woman having an orgasm.)

Artie Lange signs a development deal with FOX

by Joel Keller, posted Nov 15th 2006 1:35PM
Artie LangeOn the Howard Stern show today, Artie Lange announced that he signed a development deal with FOX. It's like the usual development deals you hear about; Artie will get paid a lot of money to either help develop sitcoms that he will star in, or make himself available to act in someone else's project if FOX thinks he's a good fit for it. Like he mentioned on the air, it's one of the sweetest gigs in show business.

For now, he'll still be doing Howard's show, because there is not sitcom vehicle imminent; but if a project does come along in ten months or so, he'll have to leave.

Artie Lange to guest on Entourage

by Joel Keller, posted Jul 18th 2006 11:07AM
Artie LangeOn yesterday's Howard Stern show, Artie Lange revealed that he'll be filming an episode of Entourage this week; there are very little details about the part he's going to play, aside the fact that his character is supposed to make out with a character played by Leslie Bibb. Jeez, talk about an odd couple... the tall, blonde, lovely Bibb making out with 275-pound Lange. I think Artie's great, but even I can't make that pairing work.

Anyway, it looks like Artie's fame is growing, despite the fact that Howard's show isn't on terrestrial radio anymore. My guess is that Artie can now let go on Sirius; his sense of humor and timing are really shining on satellite, and people are noticing. Also, Lange wrote and starred in a new independent comedy, Beer League, which will be out in September. It's getting good reviews at film festivals, so that may also be upping Artie's profile. Either way, good for him. He's one of the good guys in the business.
