    Artie has been getting attention on social media for a new joke he "came up with" about Bill Cosby. It has become his new "Walking to St Louis", he's telling it on every forum he goes on (even TMZ).
    The TMZ video is better than the joke itself because of the triggered millennial woman at TMZ.



    I didn't think the joke was bad, I just thought it sounded really familiar. I looked back at an Anthony Cumia Show from July 20th, 2015 and sure enough, there it is.





    :facepalm:


    Well, if you write him a few more jokes, i'm sure he wouldn't mind using his "TMZ connections" to get them out there.


    So do you think this is a case of joke thievery or just two podcasters with the EXACT same thought?






    PS Artie was on Anthony Cumia's show with a nosebleed last week, constantly wiping his nose the entire appearance. Even Gavin mentioned on his show several times this week that Artie is on coke. :snicker:

    Hear that courtesy laugh the joke got after it debuted on the Anthony Cumia Show? That's really all it deserves. I'm giving the Millennial the benefit of the doubt that she's just not trying as hard to sell an easy, unimpressive joke as everyone else is on that TMZ staff.

    :jj: And Artie has turned it into his signature bit...

    Can anyone confirm he is doing this joke in his standup? I would bet he is.. I wouldn't be surprised if he closed with it.

    Artie could at least try to be cool enough to not laugh at his own wit after telling that joke for the hundredth time.

    It's not a funny joke. Artie is at his best when he's goofing on people that's why his standup and podcast suck but he was great on Stern

    So we are to believe Artie was just standing on this dock admiring the ocean when I guy with s camera walks up to him? Gimme a break, this was obviously a planned interview made to look like it was off the cuff

    Well you know that TMZ always hangs out in that celebrity Mecca otherwise known as Hoboken,NJ.

    To be fair, it's not the most original joke. It's likely a case of parallel thinking, not outright theft.

    My guess is dozens of comics and hundreds of non-comics have had the same funny thought, it's just that most of them recognized it as too hacky to make a career out of it. At least Ant and Dan Soder were doing voices.

    Plus, do you think Artie pays for TACS?

    No, but a few of Artie's cronies are TACS regulars. Anthony let Geno Bisconte host his show a couple of times when he was away in rehab. Geno is also an occasional guest and a regular listener of Anthony's show.

    Perhaps Geno gave the joke to Artie in the midst of an ass-kissing fest one day? Seems plausible.

    He may have repeated it to Art and it lodged in his subconscious and came to him a year later as an "original thought" but I highly doubt Geno gave Art that joke as a gift.

    Not that it's a great joke, but I knew it was too good for Artie to have come up with on his own. That's pathetic.
