New Jersey native Artie Lange will be bringing his hilarious comedy to the State Theatre stage this March! A Howard Stern Show veteran, this hysterical actor and radio personality made a name for himself when he became an original series regular on Fox's comedy sketch series MADtv, and achieved even more recognition from his work with Norm Macdonald on The Norm Show. His book Too Fat to Fish was co-written with Anthony Bozza, and became a New York Times Best Seller in 2008. In 2011, Lange returned to radio with Nick DiPaolo to co-host Fox News Radio Show's The Nick and Artie Show.
Artie's success on MADtv led to being cast opposite Norm MacDonald in Lange's first starring role in the feature film Dirty Work. This lead to a string of feature films including, The Bachelor, starring opposite Chris O'Donnell and Renee Zellweger; Lost and Found with David Spade; Kinka Usher's Mystery Men, and the independent drama The Fourth Floor, opposite Juliette Lewis and William Hurt. Artie also had supporting roles in the feature films Old School and Elf.
