Editorial Reviews

As this fearless 47-minute set amply demonstrates, Artie Lange is not your typical observational comic that goes for the universal experience. "You know when you are [defecating] in the woods…and you're on heroin?" is a representative query. Lange, who appeared on Madtv before holding court as a core ensemble member on Howard Stern's radio show, clearly has issues, and free from FCC-mandated restrictions, he riffs through them all in graphic and profane detail. Lange is at his best when tackling his vices (drinking, drugs, gambling), his lackluster movie career (he refunds one audience member's $10 when he offers a Dirty WorkDVD for Lange to sign), and phobias. In a politically correct world. Lange asks, "Can't we be offensive anymore?" Short answer: Yes, he can, as witness his hysterical bit on Sesame Street's inclusion of an AIDS-diagnosed character to the Muppet ensemble ("Here's Grover with today's letters: H-I-V"), and his hilarious homophobic spin on a Foghorn Leghorn cartoon. Lange is a raging bull onstage, but with his unshaven countenance and his rumpled jacket and jeans, he suggests another Robert De Niro character; Travis Bickle gone to seed. Put him in the driver's seat for Taxi Driver 2. --Donald Liebenson

Product Description

Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo; bonus footage; bonus short "Game Day" (2001).

4.0 out of 5 stars Artie Lange - without the dump button February 11, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If John Belushi's character in Animal House had become a comedian, he would have been Artie Lange.

Artie Lange had been on both television (MAD TV) and in movies (most notably DIRTY WORK) before joining the Howard Stern show as Jackie the Jokeman's official replacement. It was Stern's show that has given him the most exposure.

The concert on this DVD was shot in April 2004 in Tempe, AZ and contains many inside references that Stern fans will recognize (including imitations of Jeff the Drunk and Artie's trademark AC/DC scream "FIRE!"). The show is fair and balanced and will equally offend both extremes on the political left and right. And while some of Artie's schtick here has already been on the Stern show, there are some great moments including his discussion of a street basketball game and his analysis of a classic Warner Bros. cartoon character. What's amazing is how many people in Arizona are tuned into Artie's distinct brand of New Jersey humor, right down to detailed descriptions of New York sports teams.

The DVD also contains 2 special features:

a) GAMEDAY, a short 17 minute film, made in 2000 and written by Artie. Artie's ease in front of the camera is apparent and really the only reason to watch this short. I think Artie included this on the DVD for sentimental reasons, it's the weak portion of the disc.

b) BACKSTAGE PASS, a 24 minute documentary following Artie to two of his concerts in New Jersey. The first show was in May 2004, the second show is June 2004 and was a benefit for the Rev. Bob Levy to raise money for his divorce expenses.

5.0 out of 5 stars Artie is hilarious!! January 20, 2005
Fans of the Stern show will love this DVD, but it's definitely not for the faint of heart or for those easily offended. It is a way to enjoy Artie's uncensored stand up act in the comfort of home. You get the feeling that Artie might say or do anything after downing several shots, so actually going to a show might be a risk. You might get a great set or you may just get to watch a drunk act stupid. However, you can't go wrong for the price of this DVD.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Bargain At Under $10 July 18, 2005
Artie Lang certainly gives bang for the buck here. You get very good stand up, a short film of his, and behind the scenes footage. That's better than most DVDs.

This is typical Artie, he's usually pretty bombed, witty, and funny. During a skit where he expalins how he is the only white guy playing basket ball with blacks and uses a racial slur when asking one of the other players to throw him the ball, I had to rewind several times until I finished laughing. Very funny stuff.

The overall feel of the DVD is somewhat amatuerish. It is not a high quality production, but it doesn't skimp on humor. If you're looking for a slick DVD made by a huge film crew, look elsewhere. If you're looking for a few good laughs at an affordable price, pick this up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Artie June 6, 2007
By A.Y.
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'm not sure why this DVD has gotten some bad reviews. It was everything I expected it to be which was HILARIOUS and OFFENSIVE. That is the main reason Artie has a fan following. I haven't checked out the special features yet but the stand up set alone was well worth the money.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's Ok January 29, 2007
He is much better to listen to on Howard Stern. I was not impressed by his standup, but I bet seeing him in real life would completely change my mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Artie Lange Rules January 26, 2005
I saw this - got it through a friend of the Stern show. Artie rules. This is the dvd you bring out the bong, shot glass and mushrooms and watch with your mom and dad. Its well worth the $11 - you'll watch it over and over. I don't understand how this guy isnt in a sitcom....

5.0 out of 5 stars H . I . L . A . R . I . O . U . S !!! December 23, 2010
Even if your not an Artie Lange fan, if your a fan of True, Gritty comedy, then this is for you. Artie Lange is a man with many problems. A man many of us can relate to. Yes. He tried to kill himself in 2010 by Stabbing himself in the stomach 9 times. He survived thank god and all his fans hope his career continues and he betters himself.

His comedy is along the lines of Kinison, Pryor, Leary and Carlin if they all got in a wicked bar fight, after a night of drunken' debauchery, and threw up all there jokes onto the floor and fell asleep in them. Artie is pure brilliance and his command of a room is like no other.

Quite a few of our friends had never heard of Artie Lange and almost peed themselves laughing so hard at this dvd. He's that funny. Yes. Buy It, Watch it but before you do, be sure to pee.

Funny! Well if you like Arties' style of humor. It isn't for everyone and certainly not for kids.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rather listen to his stories on the Stern show
I guess I enjoyed the clean version of Artie's life stories from the Stern terrestrial radio show. The foul language only detracted from his comedy.
