Entertainer, Author. American stand-up comedian whose material was often X-rated and controversial. He was perhaps best known for his comedy albums and his appearances on HBO and The Howard Stern Show. He is number 76 on the 2004 program Comedy Central Presents: 100 Greatest Stand-Ups Of All Time. He cited Lenny Bruce as his all-time comedy hero. He incorporated any aspect of his personal life into his act, even his cancer and the death of his son. In one signature bit, he joked about making obscene suggestions to a lady from the Make-a-Wish Foundation. His act was described as raunchy and sexually explicit, which he claimed as the reason he never appeared on network television. He said his inappropriate comments on Late Night with Conan O'Brien and The Hollywood Squares got him dis-invited, though he later returned to O'Brien's program. However, his edgy style has made him a hit on The Howard Stern Show.
