You can thank the late great Jackie Martling for that stunt. Howard mentioned it in either Private Parts or the Miss America books.

Yeah, they were a UHF-like station out of New York (I think their studios were in Jersey). They were also syndicated on a few cable systems during the late 80's, early 90's; sort of like a poor man's "Atlanta SuperStation" . Don't know what minor network affiliation they are now. This show was the only thing that kept my girlfriend and me in on a Saturday Night. We were living in Jersey at the time and Saturday Night was reserved for Howard - it was our must see TV. I'll never forget the episode where Howard was dressed as Ted Kennedy, swilling Chivas Regal Scotch and giving his "Erah, whooah of a wife, Joanie" a bad time for getting caught drinking and driving. Or the one where Howard dressed as Madonna and screamed over and over "I'm Madonna and I'm OUTRAGEOUS!!!" while forcing two male dancers to fry their genitals in a cast iron pan and following that by cutting open her own abdomen and ripping out entrails. Also, "Pee Wee's Play With Yourself House" starring Gary as Toothy, Jackie as Globey (his belly was painted like a globe) and Fred as Man From Mars Man.

I think it was WOR (Westinghouse?) then. It became UPN.

Their other big show at the time was Morton Downey Jr. Kind of a cross between Bill O'Reilley and Jerry Springer. WOR was an independent station at the time; it was before UPN.

These poor ladies had deadpan expressions of their faces and Richard was going nuts. I wish I could describe it better. My chest was convulsed with the laughter.
I think THAT was the funniest bit on the Channel 9 show EVER! They lowered them from the ceiling on fishing line. lol

So obnoxious!! lol

Howard also said "My door is always open to you. Front door, back door, all my doors..."

Good stuff. Can you believe its been that long, doesn't seem like it. Richard came up with the name for Howard's youngest daughter. She's 13 now and has never met him...

Hugs all around.
It was the EXACT same situation when he appeared on The Jay Thomas Show after a 10-year absence. And it was all because Jay made a silly remark about him being gay to someone when they were both the ambassadors (or whatever it's called) at the Hollywood Christmas Parade. The little shit held a grudge for over 10 years and then suddenly returned like nothing happened...until Sal the Stockbroker made that prank phone call and off he went.

Does anyone think there is a remote chance of Richard coming back? It seemed like Howard wanted to really tie Richard to Artie's weight loss not only for great on air content but just in general to keep Richard attached to the show.

I hope so...for the sake of the show and Artie's weight.
