Comedian Artie Lange’s autobiography Too Fat To Fish which debuted at number one on the New York Times Best Seller list (non-fiction) has fans from all over the country coming out to meet him and cheer him on. This popular cast member of “The Howard Stern Show” is about to wrap up one of the most memorable years of his life and Howard TV On Demand has been documenting the excitement for an exclusive special. Howard TV recently joined Lange as he travelled around the United States promoting his book on national talk shows and in book stores from coast to coast. The result is Artie Lange: Too Fat to Fish Book Special set to premiere on the Howard TV On Demand service starting Thursday, December 18.
Featured in the show are Howard Stern; cast members; special guests Seth Green and Lisa Lampanelli; Stern show’s loveable writer Benjy Bronk (appearing as Artie in street sketches); legions of loyal fans; plus friends and family including Artie’s mother who originally coined the phrase “too fat to fish.”
Artie Lange: Too Fat to Fish Book Special goes behind-the-scenes and captures the authentic Artie. Interviews include Artie himself as well as Howard Stern, Robin Quivers, Gary Dell’Abate, Fred Norris, with Stern show regular the Reverend Bob Levy “trying” to read sections of the book. The special captures memorable events such as the book cover photo shoot with a temperamental East German photographer; Lange’s preparations backstage for his appearance on Late Night with Conan O’Brien and his meet-and-greet sessions with fiercely supportive fans at book stores around the country. Howard TV cameras were there at the “Bookends” appearance in Ridgewood, New Jersey at the moment Artie found out his book was slated to debut at number one on the New York Times Best Seller list (non-fiction). Coincidentally, his mother, sister, aunt, uncle and publisher were all there at that moment.
Wack Pack regulars Beetlejuice, High Pitch Eric, Double A, Fred the Elephant Boy and Marianne from Brooklyn make appearances on the special. Plus, see Artie’s fans comment on the book and share their love for him.
