The dark, often self-destructive comic has a new book and a new lease on life, and headlines the Borgata’s Music Box on Saturday, Aug. 25.
Lange believes the pain he has experienced over the years has helped him become a better artist.
“I think dark things help most people become better performers,” Lange says. “Look at the Rolling Stones and where they were when they were doing Chuck Berry covers and all the hell they went through that inspired [the documentary film] Gimme Shelter.”
Lange will always praise Stern for helping his career reach another level. “I had a great time on his show and I can’t thank him enough,” Lange says. “After things happened [his suicide attempt], Howard just wanted to make sure I was OK.”
Stern thought it was time for the two to part company professionally, largely for Lange’s own good.
“Howard didn’t think those morning hours and that atmosphere was good for me and he was right,” Lange said. “He has been really supportive and I’m back doing what I do, which is stand-up and I’m on the radio again. I’m a survivor.”

During the spring of 2006, three months before Lucky Louie premiered on HBO, it was obvious that Louis C.K. was on his way to becoming the hardest working man in show business.
