    While you wait for Artie to get Norm on the podcast, you might enjoy this interview:

    Artie had a tweet a while back where he mentioned he is no longer friends with the comics he travelled to Afghanistan with. Not sure if that's true, but I've seen Artie tweet Norm a few times, expressing friendship, with no reply. Again, not sure one way or the other, but if Artie was to get him as a guest, it would be after Norm's book comes out in the fall.

    That Tom Green show with Norm was great-never saw that before. That appearance on the View that he mentioned is pretty good. It's from 1999 and is only on YouTube in shitty quality, but it's definitely worth watching.

    Norm realized long ago that Artie is a fucking cancer....it's no wonder he avoids him like the plague. I guarantee they haven't spoken in years.

    The other thing is Artie really went after Sam Simon, who Norm was really tight with.

    Yeah it seems like their friendship has fizzled. Both have had podcasts and never had each other on is telling.

    He is still friendly with attell. He has been on the podcasts a few times recently. I don't think he is friends with nick anymore despite they both claiming they love eachother. Not sure about florentine... I know art was on that metal show. I think art has burnt a lot of bridges with folks and that's why he none of the b-c level comics deal with him much and he hangs with the geno and cottons of the comedy world and even they get tired of him

    It's the heroin. A lot of people get freaked out by that stuff. I call those people pussies.

    IIRC Gilbert trashed the casting on the new Odd Couple.

    Artie can't keep his lies straight when he is on TV or his podcast. I can't imagine how crazy his lies get and how many stories he repeats when there aren't cameras around to keep him on his toes. Artie needs famous people to call when he tries to commit suicide again so the book will be worth reading. No one wants to hear about the wonderful advice he got from his pool guy or whoever, he needs big names to sell books.
