As one of the regulars on the Howard Stern Show, comic Artie Lange often tells stories about the awful, embarrassing, self-sabotaging things that have happened to him — including his problems with heroin, gambling, over-eating and prostitutes.

Lange commits those stories to paper in the memoir Too Fat To Fish.

This interview was originally broadcast Nov. 11, 2008.
