The first episode of Joe Buck’s new show on HBO ended on a rather different note when comedian Artie Lange decided that what he’d seen of the show so far wasn’t great.
Lange best known for his work on the Howard Stern Show, was part of a post-show segment with other comedians that streamed live online. Lange roasted Buck like there was no tomorrow, and added a pile of homophobic, sexist and crude jokes into the mix as well.
It’s had to know where to start. When Buck announced that TMZ was his favorite website, Lange replied “Joe, TMZ is your favorite website? What’s your second, suckingcock.com?” Lange also said among other things that Jessica Simpson was a Chris Farley-lookalike fat girl.
The reaction has varied from condemning Buck (most people think the show was bad before Lange appeared) to condemning Lange.
