Artie Lange writes SHOCKING forward to Jackie’s new book “The Joke Man: Bow to Stern”

THE JOKE MAN: BOW TO STERN is a memoir on Jackie’s life. From trying to make it as a New York stand-up comic to working on the biggest radio show of all time, The Howard Stern Show, “The Joke Man” shares his personal stories. Jackie doesn’t hold back in his new book, revealing why he left the show and his falling out with Stern and the staff.

Radar Online obtained an early copy of the book which is set to be released October 24, 2017. Radar reports that Artie Lange “snubs the King of All Media” in the forward to the book. Lange, apparently he went on to highlight that Howard Stern was NOT the best part of The Stern Show, rather, it was Martling.

“I found out later my influence wasn’t Howard. It was Howard a lot, but was the sensibility Jackie brought to the show,” Lange wrote in the Forward for Martling’s upcoming book, “The Joke Man: Bow to Stern”. He added, “that’s been my style, with much thanks to him.”

“Way back, if you asked any of my buddies who we’d like to hang out with, it always would have been Jackie,” Lange revealed. “In my stand-up and talk show appearances and even the sketches I wrote on Howard Stern, the biggest influence was probably Jackie Martling. Because of what he brought to Stern, the political incorrectness, the subtle stuff he used to do in the background. That’s what all my premises were. He was truly dangerous.”

Hillary Clinton says “IT’S OVER” for Possible 2020 Presidential Run

Hillary Clinton announced that she will not be running for public office again. “As an active politician, it’s over,” Clinton said in an interview with CBS.

“I couldn’t get the job done, and I’ll have to live with that for the rest of my life.”

Clinton who was Howard Stern’s preferred presidential choice said she was “gobsmacked” or utterly astonished by her loss to Donald Trump. “I went, into a frenzy of closet cleaning, and long walks in the woods, playing with my dogs, and, as I write—yoga, alternate nostril breathing, which I highly recommend, trying to calm myself down. And you know, my share of Chardonnay. It was a very hard transition. I really struggled,” she said. “I couldn’t feel, I couldn’t think. I was just gob-smacked, wiped out.”

Trying to find reasons for her loss, Clinton described her failing as a “perfect storm” of white people, misogyny, and Russians fighting against her. Although she does admit to her own mistakes, she also has plenty of blame for other people, including former FBI director James Comey and Senator Bernie Sanders.

After losing the election to Donald Trump she had a decision to make. Would she be attending the inauguration? Defeated candidates do not automatically attend Presidential inaugurations but Hillary Clinton was also a former first lady.

“But I’m a former first lady, and former presidents and first ladies show up,” she said. “And so there I was, on the platform, you know, feeling like an out-of-body experience. And then his speech, which was a cry from the white nationalist gut.”

“He was quite successful in referencing a nostalgia that would give hope, comfort, settle grievances, for millions of people who were upset about gains that were made by others.”

“Millions of white people,” Clinton said.

And then the Russians. “The forces that were at work in 2016 were unlike anything that I’ve ever seen or read about. It was a perfect storm,” Clinton said.

Artie Lange: “Pete Holmes Is The Best Comedy Partner I’ve Ever Had”

Filming for HBO’s “Crashing” season 2 is currently underway and comedian Pete Holmes has confirmed Artie Lange will continue to be a regular on the show.

“I play a very naïve character based on myself, I would say when I was 28,” said Holmes. “Then I meet Artie and I’m a guy who wants to get into comedy and Artie’s a guy who’s obviously in comedy and warns me about it, like the ghost of Christmas future. But then we kind of rub off on each other.”

In an interview, Pete talked about the “crashing” aspect of the show, which is supposed to be a reference to couch surfing. Holmes admitted that the concept of the show is not something that would last forever and stated that the show may only go on for two more seasons.

Crashing episode 6 is titled “Artie” which will deal with Artie’s personal problems including the drug issue. Lange admitted that things got a bit emotional in this “Crashing” season 2 episode.

Artie who is best known for being the abrasive unfiltered former comedian of The Howard Stern Show went on to say how much comedy has enlightened him to some liberal ideas.

“The town I grew up in north Jersey is eight miles from this progressive, unbelievable place, New York City. But it has the most closed-minded people about gays, racial stuff. And I’m proud that I became more enlightened than my friends by going into show business. You do meet a lot of interesting people that are more enlightened than you are in the world.”

“Most people who don’t take the leap into a creative world never even try to answer those questions,” Lange says, referring to the spiritual queries about faith and existence that often come up on Crashing. “They just let that all build up and they become my uncle Tony. And I’m trying not to do that.”

Artie & Anthony Show: New Podcast with Artie Lange and Anthony Cumia!

RadarOnline has published an article revealing that former Howard Stern Show co-host Artie Lange is joining The Anthony Cumia Show, sort of.

Artie Lange, who is now 50, is leaving his own “Artie Quitter Podcast” to team up with broadcaster Anthony Cumia, former host of “The Opie & Anthony Show.” Together the two will form the Artie & Anthony Show, a new podcast and live broadcast set to debut September 4th, 2017 on Compound Media.

The Artie & Anthony Show will run Monday through Thursday from 4-6PM EST live from New York City.

“Artie was basically offered too much money to walk away from,” reported RadarOnline. “And it was Anthony’s idea to place Artie’s name first. They’ve been friends for a while.”

Artie, who enjoyed a successful two-year run with his Artie Quitter Podcast called the possibility of working with Ant “really interesting.” “I’d be going from working with Judd Apatow and HBO, who could not be more liberal, to Cumia, who is a total outlaw conservative!”

Artie Lange: They called me a mama’s boy because I didn’t want to do coke in the 7th grade

Artie, who is turning 50 this year, opened up to a group of about 100 people at the Caroline’s On Broadway venue, where he recalled his drug-fueled medical crisis in July for the first time on stage.

“So this is exactly what my doctor said, with my Italian mother next to me. Alright, I’ll tell you, your son has an abscess right here next to his heart and it formed a reservoir. In the reservoir is a bunch of heroin and cocaine that formed a sludge. A sludge of heroin and cocaine. If you don’t get it out soon, he will be dead within a week.”

“Then my mother burst into tears. That’s what he said, he said the word sludge. That’s an example of living badly. I don’t want to hear that at 50 years old.”

Artie said he lives with constant regret that he began a sordid life of drugs and excess at such a young age.

“I’m 50. It’s been a rough 50 years. if I could do it all over again, I’d tell that kid, no,” he admitted. “I’d tell my middle school self, no I don’t want to do coke in the steam room. They used to call me a mama’s boy because I didn’t want to do coke on a Tuesday morning, 9 o’clock in the 7th grade.”

Howard Stern: Kid Rock Has A Good Chance Of Winning In Michigan Senate Race

Earlier this month, rock star Kid Rock, whose real name is Robert Ritchie, announced his bid for the US Senate seat in his home state of Michigan. The position is currently occupied by three-term Democrat Debbie Stabenow.

Kid Rock insists this is not a publicity stunt, noting his years of political activism in the Republican Party. Rock has been encouraged to run by emerging as the favorite in a new poll.

“I believe if you work your butt off and pay taxes, you should be able to easily understand and navigate the laws, tax codes, health care and anything else the government puts in place that affects us all,” said Rock.

Popular online political magazine “Politico” is urging their readers to take him seriously. Running the headline “Senator Kid Rock.”

So if you’re still not taking Kid Rock seriously, here’s why you should: His path to the U.S. Senate is far easier than Trump’s was to the White House.

“Presuming Kid Rock doesn’t get caught in bed with a little boy, or beat up a woman between now and August 2018, he’s going to win the nomination if he gets in,” says Dennis Lennox, a Republican political consultant in Michigan. “I think there’s no question about that. I think he’s the prohibitive favorite if he gets in.”

Howard Stern also likes Kid Rock’s chances.

“People laugh when they say Senator Kid Rock but he’d have a good chance of winning in Michigan. They have a very popular senator there that he’d be running against. She gets high marks. Kid Rock has been instrumental in so many charities. He actually is a pretty serious, high minded guy and a good guy,” said Stern.

It is not that uncommon for an entertainer to reach high office. Prior to winning the presidency in 1980, Ronald Reagan, a former Hollywood actor, became Governor of California in 1967 with no past political experience.

In 1998, actor and professional wrestler Jesse Ventura was elected as Governor of Minnesota. In 2003, former bodybuilder and actor Arnold Schwarzenegger was elected as Governor of California.

In the Senate, former comedian and Saturday Night Live writer Al Franken has represented Minnesota since 2009, whom Howard Stern has supported throughout.

Netflix Documentary: Hulk Hogan, Howard Stern, Donald Trump and Freedom of the Press

Netflix Documentary, NOBODY SPEAK: Trials of the Free Press was just recently released.

In 2015, Hulk Hogan sued the news website Gawker for posting a sex tape featuring him in bed with Heather Clem, then wife of his best friend, Bubba the Love Sponge. The jury awarded Hogan $140 million in damages which forced Gawker to shut down. Last year, Gawker settled with Hulk aka Terry Bollea for $31 million.

Despite the ridiculous elements of the trial — seeing Hulk Hogan on the witness stand, dressed in all black, including his trademark bandana — it turned out to be a tremendously important First Amendment case. The trial was quintessentially American in its mix of absurdity and massive implications.

Details of the Gawker case read like something out of a Saturday Night Live sketch. Hogan reportedly knew he was being filmed, and he later joked about the tape to Howard Stern. Hogan bragged about his sexual performance to Stern but insisted that was a part of the character Hulk Hogan, not the real Terry Bollea, who was personally traumatized by the leak. Hulk was accused of being racist after the audio version of the sex tape came out – which very well may have negatively impacted his life and future employment opportunities.

During the trail, Michael Sullivan, Gawker’s lawyer played an audio clip in which Hogan is discussing the size of his penis while appearing as a guest on The Howard Stern Show.

Sullivan asked if there’s any doubt as to whether Hogan is referring to the length of his manhood.

“Well, it’s not mine, because mine isn’t that size, but we were discussing the length of Hulk Hogan’s.”

An exasperated and dumbfounded Sullivan only responded with one word. “Seriously?”

“No, seriously, I do not have a 10-inch penis. No, I do not. Seriously. Believe that. Seriously,” Hogan responded.

The Hogan trial eventually bankrupted Gawker and its co-founder Nick Denton. So how could the Hulkster, who wasn’t exactly at his peak financially while all this was going down, possibly afford his expensive legal counsel?

Well, it turns out his legal expenses were bankrolled by tech mogul (PayPal founder), billionaire and Trump supporter Peter Thiel, who was outed by Gawker as being gay. Did Thiel use Hogan as revenge against Gawker? The new documentary Nobody Speak: Trials of the Free Press, currently streaming on Netflix, uses the Gawker lawsuit as its theoretical jumping-off point. It explores how the case is symptomatic of a much larger issue facing journalism. The documentary does cover Donald Trump in a negative light, portraying him as a threat to the status quo of journalism. Lambasting him for repeatedly taking about “fake news” during his rise to the presidency.

Maria Menounos Getting Through Brain Surgery Recovery With the Help of Howard Stern Show

Howard Stern Show regular Maria Menounos was diagnosed with a brain tumor in April and is now recovering from the seven-hour surgery that successfully removed the tumor.

Menounos wrote that she will not need further treatments. Although Maria’s tumor was benign, she seems to be recovering well with the help of Howard Stern. Hollywood Life reported that Menounos has had the Howard Stern “show on at all times” during recovery.

“The support that Maria is getting is overwhelming and deeply appreciated,” a source revealed. “It’s been tough, with lots of tears shed but one thing that has helped immensely has been laughter and she has got tons of that laughter from listening to Howard Stern. She has his show on at all times and it has made her laugh continuously throughout her current health scare,” the source continued.

“Every time she has felt down in any way she will put him on and it’s been one of the major factors of getting through all of this.” The solace that Howard’s show has brought Maria is not usually what the controversial shock jock is put in the spotlight for but we’re so glad to hear it’s helping her!

Seems that Howard has meant a lot for her in recovery. Maria also has shared her difficulty in starting a family with fiance Keven Undergaro, who proposed to her on the Stern show last year, and how they are turning to IVF for help.

Radar Online: Sternthology a “white-washing” of Stern Show History

STERNTHOLOGY, THE BEST OF STERN SHOWS PAST lets listeners hear classic bits from the past 30 plus years of the Howard Stern Show. The series also allows fans to make personal requests to hear staff fights, show roasts, celebrity interviews and more.

Radar Online has reported that an undisclosed source has told them that the tapes are being deliberately “white-washed” for mainstream consumption.

Howard Stern and the powers-that-be at SiriusXM have been hard at work wiping away a lot of the naughty bits and over-sexualized celebrity interviews that helped put the “shock” in shock jock.

“Let’s call it what it is,” a source told Radar Online, “It’s a white-washing of the ‘Sternthology’. They’re scrutinizing every bit from every show over 30 years. They’re cleaning it all up.”

“The mandate is out. Wipe away any and all references to ‘Retard,’ ‘F-word (Gay slur)’ and the N-word,” Radar’s source shared.

The edict comes from Marci Turk, SiriusXM’s COO and the woman responsible for Stern’s PC behavior. She’s sometimes referred to as the “Yoko Ono of the Stern show,” behind her back.

Aside from banning longtime guests Gilbert Gottfried, Lisa Lampanelli and Craig Gass, Turk was behind tweaking the names of Stern show regulars Gary The Retard to Gary the Conquerer and convincing Stern to no longer use a lisp for segments in The Homo Room.

Sources close to Stern, who has three years left on his contract, say the cleanse has a bigger meaning, and has a lot to do with him partnering with SiriusXM CEO Jim Meyer and their marketing of a new streaming video app that will give Sirius access to Stern’s audio and video library for 12 additional years

Radar’s “source” went on to claim that specials like Sternthology are where SiriusXM plans to make “big, big money.” Even remarking that long time Howard Stern Show co-host Artie Lange is being “power-washed” out of Stern Show history. Calling the process a “sanitization” of Stern history.

Project Veritas: CNN Brings World to the Brink of WW3 for Ratings

John Bonifield, a senior producer at CNN was caught on tape by Project Veritas admitting that CNN is deliberately pushing the “Donald Trump has ties to Russia” conspiracy theory for ratings.

Project Veritas announced that this video is only part one of its “American Pravda” series going undercover at mainstream media outlets. Part one of the video series shows an undercover recording of CNN producer John Bonifield admitting on tape that the Russia story was all about ratings and “mostly bullshit.” Admitting the network chose to cover the Russia story despite a lack of evidence. He noted the story is “good for business.”

“I mean, it’s mostly bullshit right now,” Bonifield says. “Like, we don’t have any giant proof.”

“I just feel like they don’t really have it but they want to keep digging. And so I think the President is probably right to say, like, look you are witch hunting me. You have no smoking gun, you have no real proof.”

“Our CIA is doing shit all the time, we’re out there trying to manipulate governments,” Bonifield goes on to admit.

This video is a disaster for CNN’s credibility. Bonifield clearly states CNN is covering President Trump with a harsher lens to appease their liberal audience.  Suggesting CNN viewers would have been “turned off” if they had applied the same level of scrutiny to President Obama.
