    Craig Gass put up a pic of Artie he took when he saw him tonight. Didn't perform, was just there.

    Also, rumors are rampant that Greg Giraldo overdosed in his hotel room and is currently hospitalized. I haven't found anything but rumors on the last one.

    Thank God Artie didn't lose his favorite corduroy jacket in all the drama.

    Crazy how some of the funniest people are the most self destructive.

    I'm sure Giraldo is having lucid coma dreams about Lisa Lampinelli's battered ham garage.

    Saw Giraldo a few months ago in SF. He was a hot mess, going through a divorce.

    Off topic, but my wife and I went to see Lampinelli a few months ago. She was honest to God 1000% better than she is on Howard's show. I about broke a rib laughing so hard. I thought for sure she was going to be a little hacky and use a lot of old insult stuff, but I was totally wrong. She's really good.

    He went to Columbia and graduated Harvard Law. He's a brilliant guy, and I've heard him at times sound almost annoyed that his fame is rising recently from the Roast stuff he does. Here is this former lawyer turned comic and he's getting famous for telling insults at a geriatric convention.

    I've seen his stand-up a bunch of times, and he's always great -- never repeat material.

    He had a really bad drug problem though. Last time I saw him, I asked him when he was coming back on the show. He said he wasn't ready to come clean to Howard about what's been going on in his personal life.

    Greg Giraldo is one of the worst comedians working today.

    99% of that fag Giraldo's jokes are this setup -- comparing two extreme things. "I don't get smoking cigarettes. You have to put this thing in your mouth and inhale. That's like sucking dick and inhaling cum exhaust! Har har!" Fucking guy sucks, his education history doesn't interest me in the least. His jokes are weak and the same thing over and over, just stupid attempts at shock.
