    Notice the Sal voice mail to Richard at the beginning around 1.45 minutes.

    "I hope you didn't tell Howard I go to COMEDY....SCHOOL"

    Just sounds fake

    50/50.

    But this was definitely one of the best eras of the show.

    Anything on the Stern show is 100% scripted and fake, guaranteed. Electric Eel Man anyone?

    I say fake. Just like....

    Psycho Sal bit....("I want to really sleep in your bed with you and Beth and watch TV")

    Sal is dumb bits...(That was proven fake by the potato famine question)

    I will say, Sal made them funny as hell though.

    Never know with Sal. He's great at faking bits, allegedly. This was early in the Sirius years, and Sal and Richard were trying to do stand up to earn extra $ at the time, and it makes perfect sense that Sal would go to some old comedian to get advice on joke writing. Therefore, I say

    Did Sal fake some bits? I don't know. Probably not fake, but embellished. He doesn't seem to like being portrayed as stupid.

    Did Sal create some real bits and is he really crazy? Fuck yeah, and funny as hell. Try and tell me he's faking it here. (Thanks to whoever posted this in a different thread -- I'm too lazy to go find it.) You can tell he reverts back to a little kid being lectured by the teacher and/or smacked down by daddy.

    BTW, at one time he had talked about a chin implant, did he ever get one? Haven't noticed lately, with the magician beard and all. It looks really small back when he first started in the above clip.

    The bit a while back about Sal being hypnotized and thinking he was a turtle was so absurdly over the top ponderous that I literally asked myself why I was listening to such shit. "I... am... a turtle..." It wasn't even remotely funny. It's amazing what the HSS considers to be "humor."
