    I feel it's become almost an urban myth at this point that Artie was great on the show, and perfect as Howard's sidekick.

    First of all, he hardly ever called Howard out on his bullshit (contrary to what a lot of people claim). I remember praying Artie would speak up during the many times Howard would rant about the negativity and "jealousy" surrounding his AGT gig, but he never said a word. Instead, he would just reinforce Howard's delusions by licking his ass, just like everyone else.

    Another thing is, he's just not a very funny person. He was great during ETM's calls, but that "whaaaaa" thing he tried so hard to make into a "thing" was just embarrassing and tryhard. His stories weren't that great either, some of you people just need to realize you have a bad sense of humor.

    Artie was ok, but nowhere near the caliber of Jackie Jokeman :cool:

    that wasnt his job... try calling out your boss on his bullshit and see how well you do at your job...


    and his timing was fantastic, his era was my favourite on the show untill he fucked it up.. cant disagree with you more. . hes not a great stand up comic because his strength lies in being a co host, not a one man show

    The show fell 100 percent after Artie left. Explain that.

    Jackie called him out on shit all the time.
    And what "timing" ? I bet you can't even find a single youtube clip where Artie displays good comedic timing, while there are thousands of vids of Jackie doing it

    I think Artie was gone from the show by the time Howard got on AGT.

    im not going to sift through youtube clips to prove my point, that statement meant you are either a) retarded or b) Jackie

    I post wherever I want. Sorry if I'm disturbing the circlejerking going on here
    You're right; if your timeline starts from when Artie joined, the show has fallen 100 percent...but then you're ignoring the fact that the show had already fallen 80 percent from it's peak when Jackie was there.

    Different dynamic. Artie was a fan of the show for years and was honored to be asked to be there. Jackie was part of the history and the legend. I think it is apples and oranges really trying to compare what each brought to the show. Jackie was not a person elevated to the status of another Robin where he was part of each conversation.

    I miss them both. :badmusic:
