After taking a break Howard got around to playing the Queen for a Day game. Two guys came in to tell their sad stories of life to win the game. The first guy was John and the second guy, who was very odd, was Mel. Here are some of their stories:
Howie had already met Hank out in the green room earlier in the morning. Hank is a big fan of Howie's and tried to shake his hand. Howie is very germ-phobic so he refused the hand shake because Hank isn't the cleanest looking person. Howie had a daytime TV show that just recently got canceled so Howard spent most of the interview talking about that. Howard said that one reason the show may have failed was the fact that Howie isn't ''..a big fat broad'' like Rosie O'Donnell, Roseanne, Oprah, Mother Love, Rikki Lake or Maurey Povich... That's right, Maurey. Robin said that Howie appeared uncomfortable doing the show and that may have had something to do with it. Howie said he kind of knew things weren't going well with the ratings. They tried changing his set around but that didn't help it out. The day he was fired was ''Bring Your Daughter to Work Day'' and his daughter was in his office when he got the bad news. Howie said that next year he'll be bringing his daughter to ''Look For Work Day.'' Howie said he did everything that the Paramount people told him to do like get rid of his facial hair and earrings. Phone callers told Howie that he was too nice on his show. He needed to be more like he is when he does his stand-up comedy. Howard told Howie that Hank had more plugs than he did so perhaps he was bringing him down. Hank was defending Howie when Howard would take negative phone calls. Hank was on a roll yelling at some of the guys telling them how their mothers are whores and how ugly they are. There were a couple of women who said they couldn't believe his show was canceled. One caller, who calls in frequently as Robert DeNiro, had Hank so confused that he was apologizing and yelling at the guy at the same time. Hank didn't believe it was DeNiro but he was afraid that if it was actually him he might be offending him. Then another guy called in as Joe Pesci and Hank was doing the same thing. He thought it could be him so he complimented him and yelled at him at the same time. Before Howie left Howard spoke to him about his germ-phobia a little bit. The last time he was on the show he spoke about his phobia and now people know not to shake his hand. He said things haven't change much and he still won't touch a lot of things. Howard got him a black light so he can use it when he stays in hotel rooms. Apparently if you use a black light you can see things like sperm, urine and mouse turds in hotel rooms. He explained again how he removes hotel room blankets with ice tongs so he doesn't have to touch it with his bare hands. He also puts a towel on the shower floor when he showers in hotels. Howie is appearing at the Westbury Music Fair tonight and he'll be in other parts of the country doing his stand-up in the coming weeks. He's at Caesar's Resort in Las Vegas August 12-15.
