He's too big to kill himself that way. If he really wanted to die, you figure he just use drugs and drink.


And what's with the article, with all of the repeating? It's like watching a bad porno.

The last way I figured he'd kill himself is with a knife. And the article is worse than his shitty stand up.

Cocaine's a hell of a drug. When is this guy going to get help. He's been a mess for what seems like years.

He's an Ohio State fan apparently. He's got that going for him.

I listen to Howard daily and he was a big Heroin user before he went "clean and sober." It's almost like you could see it coming in listening to him on the show. I'm not an Artie Lange fan but for the most part, he's a decent sidekick for Stern.

I'm not too sure if stabbing is the way to go. Seems more like a cry for help. He was already in therapy like 3 times a week.

Good luck to him...

Sadly, i agree with you. I think Artie is a great guy, Iv'e met him a couple of times, and he's down to earth and cool as shit. But his demons have taken over to the point of no return.

This is awful I'm imagining him doing this, it's hard enough to stab yourself once but 9 times? This this guy sucks at everything.

Now I feel bad, but only a little

I guess it's like an emo cutting themselves, but he just put a little weight behind it.

That's weird how it works that way. Their whole life is surrounded by making people laugh but they can't seem to find happiness themselves.
