Howard went over the guest list of the third (and most recent) party thrown in his honor by Jimmy Kimmel, noting that they’d become informally known as the “Halibut” parties.

“Jimmy called it ‘Halibut 3’ referring to the fact that my Dad loves halibut,” Howard said.

While many were in attendance at the latest get-together, Howard thinks Sandra Bullock may have made the best impression. “It was a heavy discussion I had with Sandy Bullock. Let me tell you. It was no bullshit … this might be one of the greatest girls on the planet,” Howard gushed.

Also there was Jeff Probst whom Howard described as ” a sexpert” due to his knowledge of romance and relationships. Bob Iger, Al Michaels, Bob Harper, Courteney Cox, David Arquette, Justin Theroux, Jon Favreau, Will Arnett, Dax Shephard, Kristen Bell, Jessica Alba, Rick Rubin, Ellen Pompeo, Mike Judge, John Krasinski, Emily Blunt, and, of course, John Stamos were all there as well and all got a chance to chat with Howard.

At one point, Howard said he went up to J.J. Abrams and told him how much he loved the TV show “Fringe,” which Abrams created.

“‘Yeah, you’re the only one watching it,'” J.J. supposedly told Howard, with a laugh.

Howard was upset that he didn’t get a chance to see Garry Shandling. “I missed him. He showed up about an hour after I left,” Howard said.

However, Howard got to spend quite a bit of quality time with another comedian, Louis C.K. “I sat on a couch for a really long time with Louis C.K. … he had a really great conversation. Talked for about a half-hour,” Howard said.

Finally, Howard talked about interacting with George Clooney and his date, Stacy Keibler. “He wants me to come to Italy and be with him,” Howard said. “He’s like, ‘Give me a date.’ I should go. See what’s doing with him and Stacy.”

“I felt very Hollywood. And I felt very good about myself.” Howard continued, saying the best thing about the impressive guest list was Jimmy’s claim that each and every person there was a fan of The Howard Stern Show.
