    Artie is wittier and therefore funnier, some of his best lines ever were just random funny lines When the crew was conversing about anything, sal needs more time to come up w shit and is not as good "off the cuff" imo

    A lot of times you laughed with Artie, a lot of times you laugh at Sal.

    Artie in general was funnier because of his quick wit and comments. Sal is good at writing bits, and that is about it. His I am so dumb I can't see that I am being goofed on are quite the bore. Actually Sal's only material is making fun of Gary, beyond that he is there just to kiss Howard's ass.

    Artie, but Sal is hilarious at times (usually when he is very mad etc).

    Sal's roasts were way funnier than Arties. I've not seen their stand up.

    This. I was going to make this exact comment.

    When Sal made me laugh it was mostly thru something he was oblivious to at the time.

    Sal had some good stuff at the roasts.

    For myself, I do not find Artie's standup funny at all. I never finished any of them I started.

    He was quick on the show tho.

    There should be a third choice: None of the above.

    Sal would be absolutely exposed if he sat in Artie's chair and had to create comedy on the fly 4 hours a day. I think he has his moments but his level of comedy is right there with your dipshit friend who will do anything for a laugh.

    Roasts are Sal's wheelhouse because he will say anything (or would).

    Pre junkie Artie was great. Some of Sal and Richard's prank calls were funny, but a lot of their gay comedy crap was shit. Sal's comedy is forced. The pouch routine is gross and not funny, but I do love the goofing on Gary.

    he has a razor wit at times on the podcast..but it's always at the cost of his guests or "friends".
    He brutalized a comedy team and they've never been back, buchetti and what's her face.

    I will agree that Sal's roasts were better. Arties not so much, but Artie's one liners brought a lot more to the show. But still pale in comparison to Jackie.
