ARTIE LANGE: CRASHING AT THE BASIE

Funnyman Artie Lange, seen at the mic as co-host of the NICK & ARTIE SHOW, returns to the Count Basie Theatre on Saturday in advance of his new book CRASH AND BURN.

By TOM CHESEK

Google the name Artie Lange and you’ll get way too many references to the phrase “train wreck.” Even for a public figure who’s never shied away from candid discussion of his substance abuse issues, on-air meltdowns and multiple stints in rehab, it seems a bit harsh — as if the star of standup stage, screens and satellite is being dogged by a destiny that comes rushing up like the proverbial northbound train on a southbound track.

Still, if you’re one of the famously Too Fat to Fish funnyman’s legion of loyal fans, you cannot look away — and this Saturday night, you’ll get another local look at the Jersey-bred jokester who’s mined genuine gold from pain, substance abuse, self-loathing and suicidal depression, when the boards of  the Count Basie Theatre creak for an encore stand by Lange.

A followup to a sold-out Basie gig of a few seasons back, the show finds the comic (best known for his long tenure on the Howard Stern radio show) at one of his intermittently scheduled career high points: as co-pilot of a new sports-talk vehicle (Nick & Artie with Nick Di Paolo); as a theater-filling Phoenix who keeps flapping back up from a series of personal and professional fails; and as author of a soon-to-be-released memoir entitled, wait for it, Crash and Burn.

The Lively Arts Desk at redbankgreen got the skinny on the Crash and Burn from Lange, and it’s just a flip of a page away.
