Artie Lange wrote and starred in the 2006 film Beer League.

As one of the regulars on the Howard Stern Show, comic Artie Lange often tells stories about the awful, embarrassing, self-sabotaging things that have happened to him — including his problems with heroin, gambling, over-eating and prostitutes.

Lange commits those stories to paper in the memoir Too Fat To Fish.

This interview was originally broadcast Nov. 11, 2008.
