Conquering New York and Philadelphia was easy for Howard but it wasn’t until the summer of 1991 that a first-of-its-kind syndication deal introduced millions of Los Angeles radio listeners (including a slew of celebrities) to a morning show unlike anything they’d ever heard. Howard Stern had landed in Hollywood.

And just like that, the Celebrity Superfans were born.

Countless stars still confess to having a healthy addiction to the Stern Show and most are willing to do just about anything in order to prove their love to Howard – from buying Eric the Actor gifts off of his Amazon wish list, to volunteering to be a Stern Show intern for the morning. One celeb was even willing to endure smelling Richard Christy’s unwashed balls. But who amongst Howard’s many mega-famous followers loves him the most?
