Joe Buck Live Outtakes With Artie Lange, Paul Rudd And Jason Sudeikis
Media

Since The Brett Favre Portion Was Too Predictable, Here Are Some REAL Highlights From Joe Buck Live

Since the show was on HBO, some of the language is NSFW. However, it's also priceless. Especially if you're not a fan of Joe Buck. So check it out when you get a chance.


Artie Lange was pretty typical, really. He completely roasted Buck, and sometimes hit a little too close to home. And by sometimes, I mean it was almost constant. But the real fun didn't begin until they reached the "Overtime" section of the show, which was where Artie REALLY went off.


HBO responded to Lange's over-the-top (but hilarious) act, saying that it was mean spirited and bordered on bad taste. I'll go ahead and say that it was worse than that. It didn't border on bad taste. It was in horrible taste. It wasn't mean spirited, it was downright cruel. If it were actually in jest, it would have been fine. But his comments, especially the ones criticizing Buck's awkwardness in the broadcasting booth, were dead on.

The verdict: Lange's a jerk, but he was hilarious. And Joe Buck is definitely not prepared to handle this "white on white crime", as Michael Irvin called it. Perhaps this will be a wake up call to Buck, and will let him know that if he doesn't want people to make fun of him on his live TV show, then maybe he should suck less.

Just a thought.

Artie is the best. I don't see how anyone could have  made it through a moment of this show without nodding off, thankfully Artie made it worth watching.

Look I am a fan Artie, even as right as he was for some of the skewering of Buck. I will say he did pull the trigger on the slot car controller a little too hard. 

Artie from what I have read and observed and heard is a decent person. A goof ball who has done enough living for six people. Which after reading his book makes sense since he should have died at least six times. I think the guy is at a point in his life where is making a serious attempt to clean up. He has been fighting his heroin addiction for a while and has series of relapses. In the past few months he had made some strides of progress. Which is great, sadly it appears that one of the side affects of this current attempt is that he seems to be on a electric pogo stick. Now does that excuse him from everything? No, but was it worth seeing Buck be very uncomfortable? I say yes.

Alright that is enough out of me, please return to your normal FanIQ programming. 

"No, but was it worth seeing Buck be very uncomfortable? I say yes."

That sums it up for me. Was Artie a total d*ck? Yeah he was. But man... it was hilarious.

Heard a few of the clips on the sound clips on the radio this morning, and all I can say is damn, glad someone has decided to try and put Buck in his place.  It was really rough stuff, but I absolutely can't stand Buck and his freakin' arrogant way of doing things.  Probably not the best decision to have a fat slob drunk off the cuff comedian on your show, let alone very first show, so Buck got what he deserved.
