Howard Stern Sidekick Artie Lange Hospitalized After Violent Suicide Attempt

Artie Lange

Troubled comic Artie Lange landed in the hospital after stabbing himself nine times in an apparent suicide attempt, sources told The Post. 

Lange's frantic mom called 911 Saturday morning after she entered his Hoboken apartment and found the bloodied funnyman, a law-enforcement source said. 

Lange sustained six "hesitation wounds" and three deep plunges. 

A source close to Lange's management team confirmed that the sidekick stabbed himself, adding that his mother had come to visit him that day to drop off food. 

Surgeons managed to save Lange despite heavy bleeding. 

"We all have our demons," Stern said on-air this week, referring to Lange's past battles with addiction. "Artie has given this show tremendous moments of great comedy. He's a tremendous contributor. He is a good man. Don't forget how great he is."
