Howard Stern sidekick and standup comic Artie Lange once said, “Have you ever Googled yourself? I did, most depressing thing ever. People have Web sites hoping I die at 38.” Fortunately, the dude made it to 40 and has recently kicked drugs and drink. His new book, Too Fat To Fish, chronicles his life story from young troublemaker to longshoreman to coke-sniffing pig (a great story from his MADtv days you have to hear him tell) to esteemed Stern crony.
