    At the 1:44:30 mark the discussion begins about him submitting jokes to the show and getting hired, not getting paid much but it being more of a credit thing. The Benji guy is at the end of the long table. Discussion only lasts for about 2 minutes.

    this douche doesn't mind not getting paid to submit his work, it's an honor and a privilege to have a testosterone-deprived wig-wearing old lady to read your jokes where no one will hear them.

    How do you get credit for these jokes? It's not like there's a list at the end of the show. Cheap Howard...

    I listen to it live when I am stoned and nothing else is on. Don't catch most of em but happened to be listening that night and the other thread about the redhead woman jogged my memory of hearing it.

    What's funny is that the people who are actually paid, credited writers can't get work outside of the show. Jackie's career flat-lined when he quit and Benjy will be SOL the day Howard retires. So being an unpaid writer who submits jokes doesn't mean shit to anybody.

    Where's the honor in writing jokes that you can't get paid for? This guy doesn't even sound like he's a fan. Where's the honor in being used, ignored and not compensated? :scratch: That's so weirdo to me.

    He wasn't even offered a free Sirius subscription. This douche bag is now literally paying $13 a month to write jokes for Howard. :jj:

    greedy lazy liar never disappoints...:jj:

    Stern has people write topical jokes.
    The only problem is he holds them to long and is reading jokes about news events that had evolved since the joke was written.

    So this dude gets paid (poorly) per joke??

    I dunno, one of the other guys sitting on the right seems to be on the verge of saying its a job Stern was looking to fill.

    He said he gets paid "poorly". And who told him they used his jokes.. Howard? Howard called him? Wow...

    And he said he doesn't listen to the show or know any of the characters... seems like a weird person to hire for the show. Wouldn't you need a Stern fan???
    Who knows...


    oh yeah
