VIDEO: Watch Gary Dell’Abate Perform Stand-Up at Gotham Comedy Club

Howard’s executive producer hosted an evening of laughs on AXS TV

He may not be a comedian but that didn't stop Stern Show Executive Producer Gary Dell'Abate from grabbing the mic during an evening of stand-up at New York City's Gotham Comedy Club broadcasted on national TV.

Gary guest-hosted the event, which aired recently on AXS TV—a cable channel owned by Mark Cuban—and also included seasoned comedians Ryan Hamilton, Robyn Schall, Joe Matarese, and Jon Laster.

Audience members were treated to a five-minute set from the radio producer who returned in between acts to continue to pepper in jokes.

Sal Governale was particularly offended by Gary's stand-up attempt, arguing that if any potential Stern Show listeners were in the audience they would surely be turned off by his "busted wheelbarrow" delivery. "You need to represent the show properly, Gary," Sal demanded.
