and kind of kills
any mention of artie?
nick is a very sharp comedian. The faggots in the Artie Show fanboy forum would disagree.
no mention of anything artie. but nick is a friend of the comics where artie really is not.
Artie is a scumbag vampire. I can't wait until his show tanks and fails. A fat 45 year old addict who looks likes he's 63 and likes to stab himself? Surely showbiz is his oyster.
he's a hack. how many push-ups away are you from the body of a young ________?
Artie's ruined his legacy almost worse than Howard at this point.
"It's 140 characters of nothingness" Tell that to Gary Puppet
Am I allowed to like them both? Or do I have to pick sides like a woman?
He rides his Stern Show fame. Same idiots that would attend one of those Ronnie block parties to see hack comics will go see him.
Differing opinions are welcome. I liked some of Artie's stuff on the show but he sucks as a stand up.
Good call. He mentioned that "it was a complicated situation". Will be interesting to hear what exactly went down.
Lets be real, Artie sucks as a person and you dislike him (as do I), but No one that fills places like he does "sucks as a stand up".
He created his own Stern Show fame, thankyouverymuch. He wasn't some tit sucker along for the ride.
Do you honestly thinks, minus Artie, that the Stern show wouldn't have just imploded 10 years earlier???
I dunno, I love him on his show, but I think his stand up is pretty bad.
I'm an Artie mark and I agree.
He's a storyteller and off the cuff funny guy. His stand up is pretty putrid.
Artie is unfunny unless he is on the HSS.
Artie is funny, he has to fix and twerk his show but rememeber he has to listen to the higher ups who control the content and dynamics of the show.
I'm also an Artie forum zombie, and for what it's worth, I think people have no idea about why Nick was fired. There are rumors that it was partly due to his insulting Bonnie Bernstein and ticking off the DirecTV higher ups with his politics, so we don't know anything. Even if Artie did get him fired, I say fuck him, I was never a fan and he was radio death.
As to Artie not being a friend of comics, PLEASE. Why not ask Bochetti, Materese, Florentine, Kevin Farley, and the list goes on and on of the people Artie has helped. And yes, he's a shitty comedian. I liken him to Chris Farley, he's a solid sketch comedy actor, and a very good off the cuff conversationalist. Artie himself said that his dream was to be on a landmark sketch comedy show and a modern day Belushi, not a Bill Hicks/Sam Kinison type comedian's comedian. While I don't think MadTV achieved that, it was a good show and I was a fan. To say that he's a failure based on his stand up would be like constantly attacking Howard for being a shitty actor based on Private Parts.
