So I'm listening to The Nerdist podcast, with some guy named Chris Hardwick who's apparently a comic and actor / voice actor, though I've never heard of him; and he's never ever funny. He gets a lot of big guests, and I just listened to the one with Bob Saget. Saget mentions his direction of Dirty Work, in passing, and later mentions his appearance at that private Jack Black roast in NYC with lots of friends and stars, and he lists some. Artie's name, for what it's worth, does NOT come up. Has Artie burned all his old bridges? Is this why buddies like Norm or associates like Saget and Rickles and Will Ferrell etc. have still never set foot on his phones, even while making the rounds doing Marty Douchenozzle's Ozark Podcast with 4 listeners? Sure he's had a couple of MadTV friends and 5th rate road comics, but precious few celebrities. Are these past burnt bridges why he's clinging so hard to the Stern show even as Howard continues to shit drippings on Artie's bald spot? Or am I just reading too much into it here, and Artie's booker just sucks that hard.
