Earlier this week we had interviews with the Rev. Bob Levy, Miss Howard TV model Stephanie Petruso, and we touched base with Greg Fitzsimmons. Today we say Hey Now with Richard Christie's bff and emotional friend, Sal.

Sal The Stockbroker is performing at the Avalon tonight in LA with the Killers of Comedy (Rev. Bob Levy, Jim Florentine, Richard Christy, Shuli, Yucko the Clown, Beetlejuice & The Iron Sheik). If you're a chick, leave the husband at home and grab your emotional friend for a wild night of 1-4-3, blue-cheese, and probably some gay antics between Sal and Richard Christy. Sal The Stockbroker is a writer for "The Howard Stern Show", turned stand-up comedian. His roasts kill, his racoon eyes kill make-up supplies at Sephora. Either way, you have to love a man that falls off a stage and breaks his hand in the name of comedy (and of course belittling Bababooey).

LAist: If Artie ever had kids would you let your kids play with them?

Sal The Stockbroker: Sure.

How are the roasts for you? Is it a good release of stress? Were the things you said about Beth the most regrettable Roast jokes you made?

I love the roasts it's the only time where you can joke about anything and not get any heat for it. I don't regret any jokes.

How is your hand that you injured doing?

It healed up real well.

Are you jealous that Teddy from Sirius, young guy, gets to work for the generous Artie as his assistant?

Haha. No.

I know JD has to be at work at a butt-crack time. Not that you're different, but does just the love for the show and being on the edge of comedy, help get you all to work every morning at that hour?

Tits, midgets, and childish antics always gets me up with no problem.

Do you think Howard would retire after this contract?

I think it's 50/50

Do you really memorize every detail of Howard whether it be attire or other, or is that exaggerated?

I think its greatly exaggerated.

Now that your pouch is used in bits a lot, are you happy you aren't circumcised?

I've always been ashamed of my pouch now that I found a positive use for it I'm quite proud of it.
