One of the most sought after live comedians in the business, Lange is currently the co-host of “The Nick and Artie Show,” a Fox News Radio show he created with fellow comedian Nick Di Paolo. Launched this past fall, the show has already garnered rave reviews and a massive fan base. Lange was a beloved regular on “The Howard Stern Show” for five years and during that time his memoir, Too Fat To Fish became a New York Times bestseller.
Artie Lange began his career in the comedy clubs of New York City, where he helped to create the popular sketch comedy group “Live on Tape,” after writing and performing with other troupes, including “Midnight Madness” and “The Improvables.” Lange’s breakout work with “Live On Tape” landed him his debut television role as one of the original series regulars on FOX’s Mad TV. Artie also starred, co-wrote, and produced his own feature film Beer League. Richard Roeper gave it a “Thumbs Up,” and the readers of the New York Times rated it four out of five stars. He was also a guest roaster on Comedy Central’s Roasts of Hugh Hefner and William Shatner and also shot episodes of the critically acclaimed hit series Entourage for HBO, and the season finale of Rescue Me for F/X. Artie has also produced his own concert DVD, Artie Lange: It’s The Whiskey Talkin,’ which includes a sold out stand-up performance; a behind the scenes look at some of Artie’s gigs and the award-winning short film Gameday, which Lange wrote, produced and starred in. Another milestone for Artie was selling out his Carnegie Hall performance for the New York Comedy Festival in 3 hours. He continues to sell out venues across the United States.
