Comedian Artie Lange Set For Poughkeepsie Show Friday
Popular but troubled comedian Artie Lange will perform in Poughkeepsie this Friday night. Laugh It Up! Comedy Club in Mahoney's Irish Pub and Steakhouse will host the event and tickets start at $30.00.
In December Lange posted a photo of himself with a deformed nose which, according to Fox News, was a result of mistakenly snorting broken glass with Oxycontin along with three decades of drug abuse.
Best known for his work on the Howard Stern show along with Mad TV, Lange has had a tough couple of years. He avoided jail time in December despite having drugs in his system. He's currently on probation after being caught with heroin at a traffic stop in 2017.
All this being said, Artie's got a big heart and we hope he can get his life back together. It's not too late until it is. He's got a lot of people in his corner so let's hope this time sobriety sticks.
