    Shuli is the least funny person on the planet. I do not consider him a standup.

    Artie has always been a hack. They don't even play his shit on pandora. They save that for talented comics like Louis ck, bill burr, etc.

    Fucking faggot cunt Reggie deer!... So I was going to Walgreens << best line ever..

    Yeah, he's great on radio but his stand-up is really weak.

    How were the other guys, though? It was DiPaolo, Norton, and Attell, wasn't it? Surely there were some laughs to be had that night.

    Norton and Attell were great. I'm really not a fan of Dipaolo, but I thought he stole the show. Wasn't even close to sold out either.

    Wow! That's surprising about DiPaolo. He's somewhat ok, but I thought Attell and Norton would be the highlights. Maybe his "sensibilities" played better out there.

    It bums me out like it bums Gary out when his boff gets a negative review that these shows don't come close to selling it. That's a lot of comedy right there...............don't people like to laugh no more?!?

    Or is it nothing but soup kitchens and "will work for food" signs over there?

    It's not like it was Soldier Field they were trying to fill.

    I was at their show at Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut, and it was pretty close to being a full house. The Foxwoods venue has a few hundred more seats than the casino in Hammond, I think. It probably has to do with N&A being a Northeast-centered show.

    One of the biggest mysteries to me was that Artie was such an in-demand comic.

    Yeah, his comedy is fuckin' shit.

    His last album had some good laughs, and it's the whiskey talking is okay, but he'll never be considered a great comic--he admitted as much years ago. He rates Dipaolo much higher, and so do I.

    When you're on the Howard Stern show you sell out your gigs. And for whatever reason, probably because he's funny on the radio on his own, and he can be kind of funny on the talk shows, Artie has retained some of the heat he got from his years on the Stern show.

    Jackie on the other hand couldn't sell socks to a naked Eskimo.................................

    Stern gives comics exposure. And it's the type of exposure where soft comedy tricks the listeners into believing that the comic on the show would be good to see live. Only they suck. The failure of Artie and Jackie tell the truth about Howard; he could've invested in real headliners, but he either didn't have the talent to attract them, or wasnt willing to pay a fair wage.

    Howard wants slave laborers to fill his pockets. He's the exact definition of a greedy corporate head. He should've been an Enron CEO.

    Yeah, it's pretty rough. Beer League was just awful, too. He fit so well with the Stern show...

    Yeah, I got suckered into going to one of Jackie's shows back in the day. The best part of it was the crowd doing the Jackie voice throughout the entire show. He could barely tell his lame jokes.

    It was a great time waiting to happen but he just couldn't pull it off.

    At least Artie has the sense now to hook up with some good comedians. I wouldn't pay to see Artie's stand-up but I'd sit through it to see the other three guys.

    Artie's a failure?

    :uscratch:

    I don't think you can really lump them in together. The Nick & Artie Show is doing very well, he's making good money, he's doing the occasional relatively high-profile stand-up gig, and he's also getting bit parts on high-profile tv shows. Oh, and his book that comes out in the fall will be on the New York Times best-seller's list, no doubt.

    Jackie pays to be in straight-to-dvd movies that don't even have distributors. He has an unlistenable radio show on Sirius that probably pays him $500 a week. He has 0.0 chance for another big payday.

    At this point Beetlejuice is more of an earner than Jackie.

    I think Artie was a good fit and just the right level of talent for the Stern show. It's not like they could have went out and gotten a Seinfeld or a Rock. They flirted with Carolla and blew it, but I don't think he would have been as good a fit as Artie was, anyway.

    Yeah, he's the CEO of a bankrupt comedy show who's golden-shower parachuting off into the sunset. But the problem isn't just financial greed; he's also really stingy with the truth these days. And you need at least one of those things to get the wheels turnin'.

    I think I lasted 5 minutes into Dirty Work before turning it off; that shit was terrible! It made "Private Parts" look like "The Jerk".

    sound's like you're jealous of a drug addicted man who has tried to off himself a few times .. while he stays at the trump plaza .. knowing he cash in the bank .. while you work your $7.25 job .
