    So after listening to Arties new podcast for a couple weeks I've come to this conclusion...Howard Stern is a genius. The constant adjudgments he makes during the show, the limiting he does when people try to talk about something for to long, the forward movement the show seems to take as it jumps from topic to topic each covered just enough and separated by perfect segways...That's what made Artie Lange great. He was being directed without being directed. Only Howard is capable of this show magic . On his own, Arties show sounds like every other podcast I've heard, crude and long winded.
    Sounding spontaneous takes a lot of work it seems. Arties new podcast is simply failing to impress...

    Nah, not at all. It's not magic Wig powers, it's that Artie is best at interjecting, wisecracking, and second-banana-ing while he sits back as the host talks and takes a few seconds or minutes to craft a good line. He does every bit as well on other people's shows, and was the bright spot of the dismal Nick and Artie show, because he got to play funnyman to Rick's plodding drone. It's only when he has to lead that the funny falls apart, because he doesn't have the time or brain power to work on the next good line while still driving the show forward.

    Wig had nothing special to do with it. Wig is not funny on his own and while yes he knows how to move a show forward, so does every Connecticut School of Broadcasting grad.

    Now you are trolling. Have you even visited Dawg's before? Wig Theory has gone way beyond conjecture. It's tonsorial fact. Dive in the forum and check if you must (tons of proof) but if you are being serious you are also being very naive.

    "Don't get frisky "

    Tonsorial..Great word. I had to look that one up.
    This is the very first time I have ever been accused of trolling, and it wasn't even my intention. I gotta say, I'm surprised that Sterns hair, or lack there of, has generated enough traffic here that you feel comfortable stating that the entire website, and everyone on it, has concluded that he does in fact wear a wig...
    I kinda find it funny.
    I find it funny that people care..
    I find it funny that people want him to admit it if he does...
    I find it funny that I've been called a troll by someone who insists that Howard stern wears a wig and even directs me to the proof...

    To be honest I don't care if he wears a wig or not...maybe that's why I find it funny.

    ps: I have never been frisky on the internet...unless I'm masturbating to online pornography in which case I'm very frisky...and very messy.

    I loved artie on the stern show. His own show was ok but failed to impress.
    Some stuff was good but he was painful when interviewing people NOT associated with comedy.

    It's a pretty big group of fans and ex fans here and the subject has been hashed to death and back, but still amuses. Wig offers a ceremonial tendril when challenged on his hair. He did it to not just George but Piers Morgan and others. He invariably follows it with "don't get frisky" or "not too hard"... because his hair is not real, and the high strength glue they use (not kidding) isn't perfect. Again there's a lot more to it than I can get into in one post (old hairplug photos from the Channel 9 show for example are particularly disturbing) and it's not something I care much about either. When this Artie forum actually had traffic this was the only place I posted. I prefer to discuss stuff I still listen to or find amusing, and I stopped listening to Wig several years ago. Others are far more attentive to this nonsense than I. :)

    Sorry for accusing you, but the place gets a lot of "mults" -- bored members pretending to be new users. Nice to have a new voice.

    Well then that's sad. All the excuses we used to make for how awful the DTV show could be -- oh they force the sports content on him because they contracted with syndicators for a sports show, oh the DTV booker is saddling him with these unfunny comics, oh he could get a better sidekick if he had more freedom or budget -- all those excuses turn out to be bullshit. That was as much of a show as he's capable of doing? That's it, just lazy sports fandom and terrible guests? Well on the bright side you subsuckers are still mostly Blob free...

    "Journey" has become one of my most hated words, right up there with "the Cloud". Used by half wits to mean nothing at all.

    The contestants on The Fattest Loser seem required to use it in every sentence. Maybe a reality show thing in general.

    Oh yeah, "utilize" rounds out my top 3. Anyone using one of those 3 terms is, it is statistically safe to say, a moron not worthy of your attention.

    Hell Artie didn't get a dime out of me, I found 2 shows, listened and both shows led me too my above observation.
    Hell I could be the only person that thinks that way but that's the way I feel about Artie's shit show

    Guys, did you like The Artie Lange Show but felt Artie's guests were a little too funny? Fear not! The Artie Quitter Podcast is here to help

    I have tried my hardest to find the funny (the little that exists) in these podcasts.....but I'm all out of trying. Chris Cotton is so un-listenable he makes Matarese look like the most interesting man in the world. This shit he's trying to push with his "white women ambassadors" makes me cringe. I think the man is honestly and openly trying to cheat on his wife with twatter followers....that is if he actually has a wife. I am not convinced.

    I had misguided hopes for the podcast. I hoped that with the freedom to do whatever he wanted, that Artie could actually put out a decent product. I unfortunately couldn't have been any more wrong.

    I wasn't expecting much. I was, however, under the stupid impression that all the awful guests and co-hosts of the ALS days were being forced on him. I figured the podcast would be basically just Artie and maybe Falato fucking around - trying to fill time- which i thought would yield some funny moments (i also figured hearing him all fucked up, like how he was on matarese's podcast from a year or so ago, would happen a lot).

    Instead of just one bad co-host, now there are two. He took one of the worst guests on his last show (avello) and made him a regular on the podcast. He decided that even though ALS was three hours/5x per week and fans could hear it for free, the podcast should cost money, be 1 hour, and only four times per week.

    there have been funny moments on the podcast. once i knew what the format, i thought it would be worse than it actually is. however, artie's scumbaggery has been so revolting, i find it overpowers whatever humor exists in the podcast(not that there's much humor either).
