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

A leaked workprint version is available for sale on the internet which features deleted scenes, alternate takes, and different music. It also has a completely different voiceover narration by Howard Stern throughout. Major differences include:
John Stamos kneels and grabs "Fartman"'s behind recreating what 'Luke Perry' did in real life.
The montage of Howard in the streets of Washington, D.C. set to Van Halen's "You Really Got Me" is not included.
A longer version of the lesbian sex story in which they are both topless.
Howard, Robin, and Fred run from a mob of adoring fans.
The meeting at NBC Headquarters in which they discuss hiring Howard is not included.
Kim Chan's appearance as a waiter is not included.
The vignette with Gary and a donkey is not included.
During his victory rally, Howard encourages the crowd put up their middle fingers and yell "Screw NBC!"
Howard and the gang announce a segment called "Bestiality Dial-A-Date" which offends a group of elderly stockholders listening to the show. The stockholders call Erlick who then calls Vallesecca. As Howard is leaving the studio, Vallesecca fires Howard and has security escort him out of the building. A clip of this was shown in the trailer.
A video montage in which Howard describes what happened to him and his show after he was fired. This leads to the scene of Howard falling at the Oscars which turns out to be Howard's nightmare.
This movie is for everyone including those who "think" that they don't like Howard. It shows Howard as a regular guy who can do some outrageous bits. Some bits you like, some you don't. The two thoughts that I was left with leaving the theatre is 1) he is devoted to his wife and family, 2) he is a success story despite so very many obstacles. Love him or hate, all but the most prudish will enjoy this.
