True fans of the Stern Show will find Artie gold in these pages: hilarious tales that couldn't have happened to anyone else. There are stories from his days driving a Jersey cab, working as a longshoreman in Port Newark, and navigating the dark circuit of stand-up comedy. There are outrageous episodes from the frenzied heights of his coked-up days at MADtv, surprisingly moving stories from his childhood, and an account of his recent U.S.O. tour that is equally stirring and irreverent. But also in this volume are stories Artie's never told before, including some that he deemed too revealing for radio.
Wild, shocking, and drop-dead hilarious, Too Fat to Fish is Artie Lange giving everything he's got to give. And like a true pro, the man never disappoints.
"A comedy treasure....One of the funniest guys there is....The pride of New Jersey." (Jimmy Kimmel)

great book, horrid readers
sadly, i cannot give this audible book the same rating i would give the written book. the book itself is funny, sad and eye opening. when the audible version starts, Artie Lange begins as the voice of the book. However, other readers take over and bring this book to an end for me. Please redo the audible with one reader who can actualy read.

Funny - but no forward by Howard
Artie spoke a lot on the air about how touched he was by Howard's forward to his book. It would have been nice if the powers that be had included the forward in the audiobook - unfortunately, the forward is not included.
Decent book - but I still would love to read Howard's words. Guess I'll have to pick up the dead tree edition.
