The Many Emotions of Jeff the Drunk

Howard brought up that someone pretending to be George Lopez’s representative called Jeff the Drunk and told him he could no longer be on SIRIUS – and that he fell for the prank.

Howard then played a tape of Jeff, on the verge of tears, calling Gary trying to find out what he did wrong to warrant the ban.

Howard then proceeded to play clips from a CD Jeff sang on. Howard went on to say that he was sure Jeff’s singing was set up by a guy hoping to make money off the show – perhaps discovering the next William Hung.

Jeff called in and admitted that he didn’t get paid for his performance, but added that he had a blast doing it. Before Jeff got off the line, Howard advised him to be as open as possible during his on-air session with Dr. Ellen McGrath on the premiere of “Meet the Shrink.”
