Artie Update: Second book coming soon

Howard Stern Show writer Sal Governale says Artie Lange is currently working on his second book, a follow up to his bestselling ‘Too Fat to Fish’.

When an audience member asked Richard and Sal at their comedy show if Artie would return to the Howard Stern Show, Governale gave this reply.

“All right, I’m going to tell you about Artie Lange. A lot of people ask us this and I’ll tell you personally. After Artie went through his unfortunate bout of personal demons, I had the opportunity to speak to him and Artie is really working on making himself better. He suffers from clinical depression. Artie is just trying to better himself. And he really is working hard at it. He’s working on his second book.”

Robin said that it was an accident that his mother had come by that day. She was the one who found him.
