Ever wonder what it's like to be backstage at one of Artie Lange's gigs? Well, here's a rare picture of Artie at the Gerry Red Wilson Meningitis benefit with Pete Correale, Dave Attell, Greg Fitzsimmons, Jim Norton, and Nick Di Paolo. Have you ever seen more manly men in one place (apart from Greg who looks a little light on his feet)?
Yeah, I listen to the Howard Stern Show everyday, and I hear all of the comics that come on, but it just dawned on me from this picture that the Stern Show doesn't book many female standup comics apart from the super-famous ones like Sarah Silverman, Kathy Griffin, and Lisa Lampanelli. There must be a community around New York City with female comedians in the league of these guys. Come on, Baba Booey. Book more funny people with vaginas!
