    I really find him unfunny outside of the sober years in the Stern studio. He was obsessed with hacks but I always thought of him as hacky. He claimed Reverend Bob Levy was really talented.....makes you have to question his whole sense of humor.

    Apatow is/was a big fan of the show. So prob. wanted to throw Flabbie a bone. He will fuck it up as usual.

    His stand-up is terrible, but the Cosby joke is gold.

    The reason why he got the gig on the Apatow show is he's a NYC comedian who lives the life of a NYC comedian; he's always at The Comedy Cellar, he's friends with a million NYC comics, and he's got a million NYC comedian stories.

    He just needs to play himself.

    Also, if Judd has half a brain, he's mining Artie for some of those comedian stories.

    Claiming that Levy is talented is just him being a bro. Knife to stomach, he'd tell you Levy's a hack.

    HBO ain't exactly what it used to be. They just fired the guy who probably ok'd this deal.

    I love Artie. But he will blow it and Judd will be listed in the next book as a guy who saved his life

    Artie took the highest of high roads for the longest time, but the first crack in the dam happened when someone (Carolla, at a live podcast w/Artie, iirc) told Artie that Howard was asking about him. He chuckled and said "tell him to tweet me!".

    It was so great and dismissive and highlighted the fact that Howard was (and still is) being a complete faggot about the situation.

    Howard's retarded faggotry in all other areas has so warped the lens that we almost forget how astonishingly retarded he's being in regards to Artie.

    It is nothing short of complete and utter madness.

    "I can't talk to Artie anymore because he stabbed himself on heroin 7 years ago"

    He himself knew he was a hack. His ego led him to believe that he was/is funnier than he is.

    Yes he is and this is great news for fans of pre-suicide Artie.
    Anyone know when this is set to air?

    Selling out Carnegie Hall and a #1 NYT bestseller might have had a little something to do with it, too.

    Jackie didn't do 1/10th the business Artie did off the Stern show. If Artie's a hack, what's Jackie?

    Levy?

    Shuli?
