Eric the Midget called in to claim that his anger over Artie canceling their “joint” comedy gig wasn’t born of self-concern, rather a concern for the promoter who was now out money due to the cancellation.

Howard didn’t care that Eric was angry at all: “Artie had a nervous breakdown and couldn’t get out of bed…so he canceled the show.” Howard added that Eric didn’t need Artie: “There’s nothing preventing you from going out and doing stand-up anywhere in the country.”

Eric lashed out, saying Artie brought the breakdown upon himself “by being a druggie, a drunk and an f’ing pig.”
