Storyline

Having always wanted to be a disc-jockey, Howard Stern works his way painfully from radio at his 1970's college to a Detroit station. It is with a move to Washington that he hits on an outrageous off-the-wall style that catches audience attention. Despite his on-air blue talk, at home he is a loving husband. He needs all the support he can get when he joins NBC in New York and comes up against a very different vision of radio. Written by Jeremy Perkins <jwp@aber.ac.uk>

Trivia

The film's opening "Fartman" sequence is based on Howard Stern's appearance on the 1992 MTV Video Music Awards. Stern (as Fartman) and Luke Perry (John Stamos in the film) presented the award for Best Metal/Hard Rock Video to Metallica for their "Enter Sandman" video; drummer Lars Ulrich and lead guitarist Kirk Hammett accepted the award. Perry and a female audience member managed to each grab a handful of Fartman's posterior, while Ulrich grabbed Fartman's codpiece. The other nominees for Best Metal/Hard Rock Video were "Let's Get Rocked" by Def Leppard, "Everything About You" by Ugly Kid Joe and "Right Now" by Van Halen. See more »

Goofs

When Howard arrives at WCCC, he is standing at the studio door as Fred finishes his program. To the left of the door, there is an "on air" light that is initially off, even though Fred is broadcasting. In the next shot, when Howard enters the studio, the "on air" light is on, and is then turned off. See more »

Quotes

Lawyer (Barry): Page 108, paragraph 3, No jokes involving flatulence, excretion, urination, ejaculation, or other bodily functions.
Lawyer (Jerry): Also, no use of the seven so-called seven dirty words. These are cocksucker, mother-fucker, fuck, shit, cunt, cock, and pussy.

a look at the life of nasty Howard
7 May 1999 | by (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

This film documents the life and times of radio talk host Howard Stern. While his younger years are displayed in a hit and miss fashion, the years concerning his radio heyday are nicely done. He started out as a local d.j., merely spinning records and doing weather. Becoming bored with this format, he chooses to do a more spontaneous show which causes trouble with his employers. When he reaches the top of the pile at NBC, his antics become even more outrageous which catapults him to enormous fame. Vulgar, but very funny. Go on and watch it.
