The Artie of War -- Lange Crushes Joe Buck

6/16/2009 12:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Artie Lange ripped Joe Buck a new one in an epic battle of cut downs last night -- as the "Howard Stern Show" veteran hit the sports announcer with insult after insult on what was supposed to be a night celebrating Joe's new show.



It all started during Artie's guest appearance on the "Joe Buck Live" show on HBO last night -- but the war of words only escalated during the "overtime" segment, which takes place after the actual show and is only shown on the web.

During the webcast, Joe did his best to fight back against Artie's relentless barrage of insults -- and even managed to sneak in a few jabs of his own -- but it was clear Joe was wayyy out of his league as Artie did nothing short of brutally roast the host.

You gotta see it.

sheesh    

Artie needs to go back on heroin because since he's been off it he's turned into a raving A-hole. I listen to Stern but he's trying to take over and is totally annoying. He's loud, opionated, talks over Howard, and is insulting to everyone. and I'm sick of him calling women "Broads". He is so disrespectful to women I don't know why any woman would even look once at him. he's fat, ugly, and disguisting.

hahahahahha!!!!!    

Does anyone know why Artie would act like this? I mean, who would have beef with Joe Buck? If anyone knows anything about whatever history they may have I'd love to hear it. Thanks

Artie, roasted Buck? Nah, even, maybe. If anything, Buck digs were deeper. And because you didn't expect it from Buck, I found it more entertaining. If anything Artie was just being Artie and Buck hung with him.

I thought Joe Buck held his own...in fact, i think he had the upper hand on Artie. TMZ may have reported this one incorrectly.

Agree with #7. I thought he held his own pretty damn well. Artie seemed like he was sputtering and just getting vicious.

I agree...Buck was actually funnier and more witty. That being said, I love the line of Artie: "show four- the one you won't get to".

Buck got the first jab in and the best lines. Artie is shot out of a cannon, he's a mental mess. The misogyny and the homo phobia seem to be all he can reach for out of his comedy bag. It's apparent that Howard is getting tired of his constant blabbering and philabustering.
