EXPRESS: For those who haven’t read your book, can you tell us how you got hooked on heroin after kicking coke?
» LANGE: I fell into it on the road one day, as I documented in my book. A comedy club manager in a certain city, I told [him] I was taking a lot of pain killers to deal with the shitty plane rides and hotels, and somehow getting back to work on Monday morning at 6 [a.m.] — which every comic I worked with on the road told me they didn’t know how I did that. I dunno how I’ve done it either; I’ve done it for almost a decade. The guy got me in touch with a dealer for heroin because it was cheaper. And the name of the chapter of the book — the guy actually said this — “Do heroin, it’s better for your liver.” I was popping 50 Vicodin a day, so in his own way he probably had a point.
» EXPRESS: How long have you been clean now?
» LANGE: I hired two off-duty New York City cops who specialize in this to get me off heroin once and all. As of April  I’ve been clean from heroin; haven’t touched it. I lost 50 pounds right away — being on Subutex, this opiate blocker [to quell heroin cravings], helps you gain a lot of weight. I’ve always been heavy, but never near 300. … Anyway, I got off the Subutex, lost the weight, got healthier, [but] I still have bouts with depression.
#10: Reggie Jackson interview: Baseball legend Reggie Jackson gave Howard Stern a down and dirty interviewed that revealed Jackson’s Viagra usage and his penchant for masturbation.
#9: ‘You’ve been Richard Christy’ed’: The perpetually filthy Richard Christy announced to the Howard Stern Show community that he was suffering from a disgusting skin infection known as ‘MRSA’. After freaking out the germaphobic Howard, Richard burst into the studio, announced his skin infection was a fake he created with stage make-up and proclaimed ‘You’ve been Richard Christy’ed!’ The ensuing lambasting he received from Howard was epic.
Thanks for all the support and making this one of the best destinations on the Web for Stern fans. Don’t be afraid to spread the word.
Bubba Clem Family Thanksgiving.
