When Amy Schumer was a young comedian, she shared with Howard and Robin where she got her start in stand-up comedy. It was in grade school. She said flat out she was “a problem child.” Her most common recognition in school was the title for “teacher’s worst nightmare” and “class clown.” She admitted to talking back to authority and said she said she had Saturday detention every single week.
She would blurt out the funniest thing she could think of and heckle her teachers. She disrespected them on purpose, but only the bad ones.
Howard Stern and Bill Maher locked horns and engaged in a bitter feud more than 20 years ago. It was during the buildup for the War on Terror after the Trade Center events. Maher, provocative as always, said something incredibly offensive to the US military and Stern was not having it.
He banned the outrageous HBO political host. Finally, in 2019, Stern invited Maher back to the radio show and they buried the hatchet.
Paul Rudd stopped by the Howard Stern Show in 2015 and he dished a doozey. Rudd told the story about how he got dubbed “Donny the Dweeb.” It happened after he got a part-time job as a DJ. He was about 18 and did weddings and bar mitzvahs.
At one gig, he was in a funk and began dancing like a spaz. His boss grabbed the mic and introduced him as, “Donnie Dweeb.” It stuck. His silly jig became known as “the dork dance.” Kids would ask him to do it. He also talked about speaking with Stan Lee about the intricacies of the Antman. (Who’s a dork now?)
Howard Stern grilled Arnold Schwarzenegger about his high-profile divorce. He’s got a way of stroking the guest’s ego right after pointing out a huge mistake or failure. With Schwarzenegger, Stern went on about what a major catastrophe “The Terminator” dealt his family, but then cooed about how the actor had a perfect record his entire career, saying the former California Governor is probably used to so much success.
His divorce from Maria Shriver was one of the worst Hollywood scandals ever. And Stern got the actor to get into the dirty details. He talked about seeing a therapist and said it was a nightmare experience. Schwarzenegger, clearly angry at the shrink, called the clinician, “Full of BS.”
Sofia Vergara hates working out. She’s a natural beauty and has never had to in the past, but now she’s finding herself having to work out often. She says she’s in a bad mood before she exercises, while she exercises, and after she’s in a bad mood thinking about the next workout.
The Columbian actress in her trademark accent joked about wishing she had silicone implants now that her real body is falling victim to the aging cycle. But Stern could not stop complimenting her on her natural endowment, a look he characterized as a tall yet petite frame and voluptuous on top.
