Eric the Midget called in to ask if his upcoming stand-up debut (opening for Artie on December 12th) was still on. Artie wanted to move the gig: "If I flew you into a local gig here in Jersey is that something you would do?"
Eric said sure – but Gary had an amendment: "If he's flying he's gotta come in here too." Artie asked: "Could I get corporate to split the plane ticket with me?" Gary nodded: "Absolutely."
