    Jackie left and couldn't get anything going....Artie gets dropped, tries to kill himself, disappears and boom he's back with his own show, still making good $$$$

    Your thoughts....

    My thoughts: Jackie is doing exactly what Jackie wants to do. His legendary cheapness probably means he has enough money socked away to live comfortably, and he supplements that with various local gigs and a couple radio shows.

    jackie seems like a well adjusted guy who was able to retire early. he doesnt need to work that much and lives a sort of meager lifestyle he doesnt have a huge "nut" i guess and seems like he did well in the stock market in the 90s when everyone was making a killing. If you could retire early wouldn't you?

    also as much as i love the joke cunt its HORRIBLE radio, he clearly learned nothing from howard. artie respected howard and learned how to do a radio show while he sat there every day. jackie had no respect for howard and learned nothing about hosting a show.

    im surprised he was never hired to host a gameshow or something i guess hes too cheap to get an agent and manager cause he does have the sort of goofy personality that would work well on a daytime game show.

    Jackie is a successful standup comedian. If you go see him at a comedy club he still sells the place out. His show Jackie's Joke Hunt illustrates what he is good at. He tells very crafted jokes, one liners and some riddles. I give Jackie credit for putting in REAL effort into his show as opposed to what goes on with Howard's show lately.

    Artie is more conversational, a story teller with a quick wit. He can talk for hours and engage the other people in the studio. Artie and Jackie are two different types.

    Very true. You need someone who can talk to lead a radio show. Jackie is funny, but one joke after another gets old if that's all it is. Jackie is great when he can sit back and then interject with a joke or insult.

    ...Jackie has to make on air appearances all about Jackie. just like the jokehunt promos Jackie has to make the last sound at the end of the promo. you cant really interview other people when your an attention hog. in short, Jackie doesn't have the right stuff to be a host cause its always all about Jackie.

    I agree, he's not looking for a Hampton's lifestyle and I'm guessing his income more than covers his needs. People often forget that Jackie had his own issues with drinking and drugs and that the demands of the then five day a week, 4AM wake-ups was taking a toll on him. His departure from the show may have saved him from a world of health issues.

    Jackie only had the Stern show and some shitty stand up. Artie had a career way before he ended up on Stern. Artie understood the business and knows that he has to make his own thing happen, Jackie likely assumed that the phone would be ringing off the hook with offers.

    With that said, has Jackie ever spoke out about his feelings on Stuttering John's successes?

    And for his age, Jackie now looks better than a lot of guys 10 years younger than he. He wears his happy-go-lucky lifestyle very well, if that makes sense.

    Fact of the matter is when Jackie left there weren't as many media opportunities as there were by the time Artie left. Sirius was barely in existence. Dan Patrick hadn't shown DirecTV that they could broadcast a radio talk show on TV and make money.

    Plus, Artie is better on air than Jackie. Jackie's strength was writing. Artie's strength was telling stories on the air. Artie is just better at hosting a show.

    Artie has more talent. He did have a career before the Stern show.
