Caught Artie's helicopter story last night. Sounded like he thought he was doing a stand-up bit on stage. The story went on way too long with way too many embellishments and Artie laughs. Then he continued on with the ex-cop helicopter pilot's exploits and I thought he was going to go on with the Wu Tang Clan stories when Howard cut him off for a commercial. One of the few times when Howard was on the sidelines for a long period during an Artie story, just going "uh huh, uh huh" Artie usually knows when to let Howard in but he seemed to be in another place.
