“Listen, I was on the greatest show of all time for about 9 years … and I put them in a very awkward situation to say the least, so, what am i gonna do?”
Lange left the show in early 2010 due to problems with sobreity. Lange has been recovering in a Florida rehab facility.
We hope Artie returns to Stern’s show, just for his impressions at the very least. See below for what we mean. Here’s his Mike Tyson’s impression:
As raw and offensive as ever, comedian, radio personality, actor and author Artie Lange returns to his roots in Jack And Coke, shot at one of his favorite clubs in his beloved New York City. One of America’s funniest stand-up comedians, Lange’s irreverent, uncensored humor gets huge laughs from this NYC crowd. The culmination of nearly four years of touring, Jack And Coke includes nearly an hour and a half of insanely honest, hilarious material.

Artie Lange, this is not funny! As previously reported on andpop.com (and everywhere else), Artie Lange was hospitalized over the weekend in New Jersey for undisclosed reasons. Details of the hospital stay are now surfacing. TMZ reports that Lange’s publicists explains that Artie Lange was hospitalized due to a suicide attempt in which he stabbed himself nine times. Lange was found by his mother in his Hoboken apartment where the comedian was laying on the ground bleeding. Prior to his hospitalization Lange was mysteriously missing from The Howard Stern Radio Show on Sirius XM.
“We all have our demons,” said Stern, referring to Lange’s past battles with addiction. “Artie has given this show tremendous moments of great comedy. He’s a tremendous contributor. He is a good man. Don’t forget how great he is.”
Artie Lange has been missing from The Howard Stern Radio Show since early December, and now it seems things are getting worse. E! Online reports that the radio comedian has been hospitalized in New Jersey for undisclosed reasons.
“We can confirm that Artie is in the hospital,” Lange’s camp said in a statement. “Artie has chosen to keep all information on this matter between him and his doctor. There will be no further comment.”
