Stern Show executive producer Gary Dell'Abate is (supposedly) well-versed at handling big stars. It's a major part of his job (and he genuinely is good at it).
Something went awry with Gary's judgment at the White House Correspondents' Dinner on Saturday night, however.
Gary asked movie star, Oscar nominee, and friend of the Stern Show Bradley Cooper to come over and say "hello" to his table full of friends.
Howard couldn't believe Gary would do this, though Gary protested that Bradley was standing right by the table and it wasn't any trouble for him to say "hi."
'Why didn't you ask him for a lock of hair for your wife?' Howard asked incredulously. There's always next year.
