Artie Lange is a comedian from New Jersey, who has appeared in a few films, but is mostly known as one of the sidekicks of radio personality Howard Stern. The detail of the suicide attempt was hard to read, but it put everything ans perspective as to how you have to hit bottom in order to recover.

I was hoping those last chapters would be about permanent sobriety crasy happiness. The one thing I didn’t like about this book compared to his previous one was his previous book was about overcoming his demons and had a more hopeful tone unfortunately, in that case it was mostly a lie.

With the help and support of friends and family, Lange manages to recover and get his life and career back on track. Crash and Burn picks up at the height of Lange’s success on the Stern show, where he frequently fell asleep on the air, got into fist fights with everyone from High Pitched Mike to his personal assistant, Teddy, and he was taking so much Subutex to cancel out a Fentanyl IV drip.

Crash and Burn by Artie Lange

The New York Times. I think these last chapters could have used less detail. Artie is seriously fucked up. My only criticism is that occasionally the book gets a little long-winded in providing a backstory for whatever tale Artie’s spinning at the time, but eventually he gets to the point, and the payoff is usually worth the wait. The book has a very conversational feel and if you’re familiar with the way he tells a story from Stern, you’ll recognize his voice immediately.

Listening to Artie over the years on the Howard Stern Show was an exercise in contradictions. But I do have to agree with some of the other reviewers that Lange has, by his own admission, taken out his anger inappropriately on his lwnge, managers of small comedy clubs out in the hinterlands, buen to the Stern show, and others of little consequence, while he is careful not to deliberately offend people in power positions, like Howard Stern, Robin Quivers and his agent.
