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.

Artie is in a lot of trouble without the support that he has from the crew at the stern show. I hope other people are as worried about him as I am.

I haven't listened to Stern since I found Opie & Anthony on XM 202. Artie was the funniest part of the terrestrial show, so I think that his crappy show will get even worse (unless he brings back Jackie Martling and Billy West and loses that hole, Robin). Sirius does have better music channels, however.

Could there possibly be two less important people??? They use up way too much oxygen.

I seen Artie on Kimmel the other nite. SAD. Dude needs a Bath and a Shave.Maybe His Heroin Addiction is getting the best of him. Dude Jenny Craig is a Callin. What female in her right mind would want that Fat ,Bloated ,Drug Addicted, piece of garbage layin on Her. He's not even FUNNY. Sad Just Sad.

Concern for Atie    

Howard if you are a true friend to Artie intervene and hog tie him if you have. Take him to rehab. He is a danger to himself and now who knows. We can't have another Belushi, Candy, Farley,Kinison situation.Please stop Artie.

He'll be back, the only reason he gets so much for standup is because he's on the Howard Stern show. No one would know about his shows if he didn't have 4 hours a day to promote them.
