Howard Stern did a remote broadcast from Los Angeles this month to commemorate SiriusXM’s new LA studio. While in LA Howard took the time to make an appearance on Real Time with Bill Maher. The video of the interview is posted above.
“You get away with shit that I can’t get away with, and that always pisses me off,” Maher said. “You don’t have a politically correct audience. This is a good audience, but sometimes I have to fight my way through that shit.”
Stern added, “From one broadcaster to another, I have to tell you it is very liberating. I’m not sitting there being monitored. It’s my own fantasy.”
What Stern fans thought of the appearance:
Howard took a call from a guy who said they have to move to Los Angeles. Howard said people did like the shows out there. Jimmy Kimmel said he has never had more requests for tickets than with Howard’s appearance. The caller said the Bill Maher thing was great too. Howard asked Jimmy about the ticket requests because he knows he doesn’t want it loaded with his family and industry people. Jimmy said he wants it filled with fans so they have a limit of 10 people they know.
Howard took a call from a guy who said he’s not saying it to be nice but he has such a great look going. He said he looks fantastic. He said he looked so relaxed and handsome on Bill Maher’s show. He said he had a genuine laugh and smile on the show and it was awesome. The caller thought Howard was so odd when he tried to show Bill physical affection.
Howard took a call from a guy who said he’s from North Carolina. The caller said he thinks the Bill Maher interview was the best he’s ever done. He said Howard was very calm, charming and funny. Stern said that’s because of Bill Maher. The caller said he was really impressed. Howard thanked him for that and let him go.
