    To me, it still isn't clear what the guy exactly does. All the rumors are he is getting paid a ton of money to write jokes, but when do we hear them? I can't figure out when something Howard says actually comes from Benji or or Howard himself.

    Steal our funny stuff from the listening thread and pass it on to Howard.

    You're not supposed to know. That's why Jackie was great... he let you know.

    It's easy to tell a Benny joke if you know what to listen for. Join a few listening threads. We always point them out.

    There's a lag of a few seconds and Howard awkwardly says something, like he's reading, which he is.

    This.

    The joke often comes just a few seconds too late. It's adorable.

    This, Remember when Sal got called out by Will for lifting bits and shit from SFN :jj: Benji needs to get knocked down a peg or two, that will get his ass in gear but probably not.

    My opinion is he has something over Howard. Not sure what. A story about a woman or some pics or something. Hearing guests sit in on the show and provide so much life just amplifies his uselessness.

    nobody knows. some have told me Benjy is supposed to be funny in which case Howard should be able to sue him for non-performance.

    Listen to Monday's wrap up show since they all talk about Benji's job responsibilities. He's just a writer and not talent on the air.

    Dick good luck with the job hunt.

    Benjy is paid to not be funny and just be annoying.

    The best part is that Howard's supposed comedy writer doesn't earn as much per year as Howard earns in one hour, and Artie earned less per year than what Howard did in one or two shows.

    Jackie was the one and only in retrospect legit writer Stern ever had. That's why the 90's kicked ass . . .
