    I've noticed the only thing I laugh at anymore on the Stern Show are the drops they play of Jackie, or the impressions that Howard or Fred do of Jackie's voice.

    And they seem to have increased the number or Jackie-drops or references to Jackie in each show. There's got to be 20 or more direct or indirect references to Jackie in every show now.

    I wish they'd bring him back - even for the News - it would only be for less than 3 hours a week. Plus they really need his writing - the Karnak bit sucked without Jackie's jokes.

    Seems like the only thing good on the show is what it used to be. :facepalm:

    Howard invented funny drops.




    When will Howard address this?

    Jackie wrote ALL the fun & funny on the Stern show 1985-2000
    :troops:

    I was listening to some 90's shows.
    You can hear notes being passed.
    Howard and Billy.....waiting for Jackie to pass them the funny!!!!!

    They never ignored Jackie like they do with so many other people who worked on the show. Same goes for stuttering john. I think deep down wiggy and Fred know when they both left it really did break up "the Beatles of comedy". But wiggy is just too proud (or delusional) to make a real attempt to bring him back. Unfortunately, if they did bring back Jackie the magic would not be there and it would probably crash and burn.

    I loved it when Jackie would laugh when Howard read his jokes.
    He was the best.

    They always bashed Jackie for laughing at his joke harder.
    He wrote them....so obviuosly he thought they were funnier.

    BTW...Fred does the same thing these days.

    I'm surprised that Fred even writes jokes.

    The huge up-tick in comedy on the show that would be brought with the return of Jackie, would only serve to remind people of who on the show is REALLY funny. Howard's ego would not be able to handle that.

    Won't happen.

    I have always been a fan of Jackie. I took a lot of shit for saying I thought Jackie was better than Artie, but to each his own...

    Howard is America's judge and is unable to tell if someone is talented or not.

    Fred is so conditioned to laugh at Wiggy, he laughs when Wiggy clears his throat. Jackie was the best. Artie was still pretty damn good. Now? Bengy, Shuli doing the funny? Lisa G and Elisa Jordano writing jokes (maybe the joke was Bengy intimating that she writes jokes)? The show has been running on empty for quite some time.

    Apparently anyone can write for the show now as long as they don't ask for money.
    Just write a few jokes about topical news stories......and Howard will use them a week after the news story is out of the news or has changed significantly....:jj:

    When Jackie left the flame burned out. Artie had a few sparks of genius, but he was never a writer/ bit producer like Jackie. :nocheer:

    Remember Jackie catalogued his jokes. As lame as that may sound, it shows that he was ambitious. Artie had to have Teddy just to book a flight. :facepalm:
