The expansion of television programming over the past two decades has created a generation that is largely unaware of the sheer joy and unending laughter that can be experienced when seeing a comedian perform live on a stage. Artie Lange is a highly regarded actor, comedian, and radio personality who has been active in comedy clubs and on multiple media platforms since 1987. Like many comedians, Lange struggled early in his career before gaining widespread fame through appearances on television and radio outlets.
Artie Lange tickets were sold for the first time in June of 1987 when, at the age of 19, he performed his first ever stand-up comedy routine at Manhattan's famed The Improv. Lange once described that first stand-up performance in the following manner: "I was unprepared, I mumbled, and I forgot stuff. But I'm proud that I did it." Following that stand-up debut, he took on work as a longshoreman at New Jersey's Port Newark in a bid to help support his family financially following the death of his father.
By 1992, Lange had found a winning combination that would help his comedy career gain traction. He was working as a taxi driver in New York City, while benefiting (albeit very little) from the sale of Artie Lange tickets for his 20-minute stand-up performances at the Comic Strip. Lange credits the flexibility of his taxi job for allowing him to take 20 minutes out of his day to perform at the Comic Strip.
Lange's big break came in 1995 when he moved to Los Angeles to audition for a role on the new sketch comedy MADtv. Lange landed the role he auditioned for, but by the second season he was forced to depart from the show following a cocaine binge and subsequent stint in rehabilitation. When he returned to public life, Lange appeared the 1998 feature film Dirty Work, and landed a role on the second season of Norm Macdonald's sitcom, The Norm Show.
For the majority of the 21 st century, Lange served as a sidekick to Howard Stern on the shock jock's radio show. His other endeavors include a radio show, The Artie Lange Show, two written memoirs (Too Fat to Fish and Crash and Burn), and a return to his roots as a stand-up comedian. Today, Artie Lange tickets are sold for comedy performances at clubs and other venues across the United States.
