On Friday night's edition of "The Artie Lange Show" on the Audience Network, best-selling author and comedian, Artie Lange and co-host Jon Ritchie, former NFL fullback welcomed actor and comedian Bobby Moynihan for this fun-packed sports/comedy show.
For those who are not familiar with this show, it is a cross between a frat house and an intense game of Trivial Pursuit. After Lange and Ritchie have a few chuckles at the expense of announcer, Mike Bocchetti, and wax philosophically about the events of the day, they get down to business and introduce guests who are not only, topical, but bring insight and cleverness to the show that fits in nicely with the tomfoolery that can spring up without notice.
Lange’s total recall of movie quotes and sports stats is astonishing and although Ritchie’s expertise about football is expected, his knowledge of music is a great balance to the show that features musical guests along with the array of comedians and sports analysts.
Bobby Moynihan, who could pass for Lange’s twin brother, enjoyed stating how often he is mistaken for Lange, who hears that they miss him on Howard, or people yell things at him like, Beer League, one of Lange’s best movies. Bobby suggested that they replaced Artie’s picture on the cover of his newest book, Crash and Burn, with his likeness for a day and see if anyone notices.
Bobby, who is identified by many as Drunk Uncle who appears on Weekend Update on Saturday Night Live, mentioned that on Monday, January 13 on FX, he would play the voice of “Chozen,” an aspiring gay rapper who tries to get his life back on track after being released from prison.
