Amusing TV

Artie Lange on HBO’s Joe Buck Live

Sometimes live TV talkshows can move from the realms of jokey banter into the land of the downright uncomfortable.

Such a thing happened recently on a new show on HBO called Joe Buck Live, a sports talkshow hosted by the aforementioned Joe Buck.

It is the successor to Costas Live and the format features three guests talking about sports.

On Monday they were: Paul Rudd (actor in films like I Love You Man and Role Models), Jason Sudekis (of Saturday Night Live) and Artie Lange (sidekick on the Howard Stern Show).

HBO has pulled all the clips floating around on YouTube, but check out this final bit of the show (filmed as a web only segment right after the regular broadcast) to get a flavour of how things went.
