For the first time since his attempted suicide in January, comedian Artie Lange was seen socializing, looking healthy and more fit. We hear from an insider that Lange showed up to a celebratory family dinner in Greenwich Village in New York City on Friday.
“He surprised everyone by showing up,” the insider says. That same night, as was reported by longtime Artie fan site savebabygorilla.com, he also performed stand-up at the Comedy Cellar, opening with the line: “Well, I sure am glad that Fashion Week is over, because I am fucking exhausted.”
Our insider explains: “He has a sober coach with him. So, a little at a time, Artie’s coming out.”
We’re incredibly pleased to hear this news and wish Artie a slow and steady recovery.
