    I have been a big fan for almost 20 years. His funny, honest and irreverent banter and parade of freaks and hot women have been an endless source of entertainment. Plus, his show has been a who's who of the music world. Everyone from Frank Zappa to 50 cent has been on Stern.

    The only time I don't like him is when he talks about how he invented shock radio and goes on about it at length. He tends to be quite arrogant (sp?) about that and it gets on my nerves, but other than that he's very entertaining.

    I think he's ok, the TV show is better. I think he relies too much on potty humor and fart jokes, and isnt sophisticated enough to have real jokes or comedy. I prefer Elliot in the Morning.

    I've seen Private parts and enjoyed it hugely (I saw it when I was about 14/15 so it was pretty influencal :D).

    I've not heard any of his other work, but based on the film alone I have to chose the 'I love him' option!
     
  11. Heehee. I'm happy to have helped. You can make your day even better by using them!

    it seems like he lost alot of his mid 90's popularity. I heard the OJ song almost 10 years ago and it is still clear in my mind.
     
  13. he's ok.

    I like Howard. His potty/lesbian/boobie humor falls right in with my own. Immature or not, I find it funny. He CAN'T be the Anti Christ. Everyone knows Hillary Clinton is the Anti Christ.

    Bongo Butt Fiesta, anyone?
    ...that always looked like fun.

    Anyone recall the E! epi when some yutz ate a marshmellow from Jackie's crack to get a date with a porn star? Jackie had been sitting on the marshmellow all morning...& it had melted. Not a pretty sight.

    I haven't heard the radio show in years & I won't watch the E! shows anymore(while they're digitized)...the parts I did like were-
    -Stern chastising his staff(Scott, Gary's teeth, Jackie/Fred, the various interns, etc).
    -Stuttering John goin' on location.
    -The crank calls to the network news("...we now have Bob Of Bowie, Maryland on the line".
    "Bob of Bowie, Maryland"...that one nearly killed me.


    Whatever happened to the Grease Man?
