Artie Lange to Howard: I Know How to Quit You?

4/11/2008 12:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Artie Lange stormed off the "Howard Stern Show" today, causing pangs of anxiety throughout Howard's loyal legions of fans that the bloated comic indeed put a fork in himself and would not be coming back.
Arite quits Stern?

The drama started when Artie and his assistant, Teddy, were heard fighting in the hallway. Howard later brought it up on air, causing Artie to lose his damn mind and at one point lunge at the assistant.

Sources close to the show tell TMZ that both the fight and the situation are definitely real. As for Artie never coming back -- we're not so sure.

Honestly, I don't care for Stern and/or Lange. Both are disgusting. But at least Stern is a bit more interesting than Lange.

Lange will be Howard to come back, because Lange can't really survive without him. Has anyone seen Beer League? One of the worst films EVER MADE. Lange has no real career except as Stern's sidekick.

I feel bad for Artie, He is a good guy with so many inner demons. This is yet another cry for help as he continues to spiral out of control. I love Artie but the only way I would let him back on the show would be if he entered rehab and got some professional help for his addictions. Food, booze, drugs, gambling will all eventually lead to his ultimate demise if he does not get himself cleaned up. Good luck Art.
