Nick DiPaolo's New Podcast 'Goes Against the Status Quo'

Nick-di-Paolo-Interview-MANjr

Around this time back in 2011, I told PJ Media readers that stand up comic Nick DiPaolo and his longtime friend and colleague Artie Lange had signed a juicy three-year deal to host a sports talk show on satellite radio.

As a fan, I was thrilled for DiPaolo.

He's been stealing every Comedy Central Roast since they began, and was the undisputed (co)star of the late-lamented Tough Crowd.

That's why I can't figure out why (in the words of his fellow comedian Joe Rogan) he's still not selling out arenas.

So obviously I was shocked (and ticked off) when his radio show returned to the air after the Christmas 2012 break -- without him.

Why? No one's talking, even now, probably for legal reasons.

(It took me far too long to learn that you almost never find out the real reason you -- or anybody else -- gets either fired or dumped.)

The good news is, DiPaolo promptly went back out on the road, which -- don't kid yourself -- isn't as fun as it sounds, especially when you're, well, not a kid anymore.

(There's a reason that's the premise of Adam Carolla's next movie...)

DiPaolo has also put together a new hour, just recorded his new performance DVD -- and he's launched a new weekly podcast.
