Former “Howard Stern Show” cast member Artie Lange will present an evening of standup comedy at the Stress Factory in New Brunswick, April 26 at 7:30 p.m., to benefit Robin Salem, the wife of longtime “Howard Stern Show” engineer Scott Salem (known to listeners as “Scott the Engineer”).
Tickets are $40 ($49 with buffet, $60 for VIP seating); visit stressfactory.com.
Scott Salem has started a GoFundMe campaign, titled “Help Robin Recover,” writing on the campaign’s page about the struggles that his wife has had with multiple cancers, and the fact that she has been bedridden for the last two years.
“While our insurance covered most of the expenses we had to hire private nurse/aide to care for her while I was at work, which is not covered,” Scott Salem wrote. “We have drained our savings and have gone into considerable debt to cover the related expenses that are not covered. In addition to the private care that is required there are other non-covered expenses, such as certain medical equipment and modifying our home to make it handicapped friendly.”
Lange wrote on Twitter account, @artiequitter, earlier this month: “Stay tuned for info on a benefit for Scott the Engineers wife Robin. Scott’s a made guy. He needs our help now. I will be headlining. If u knew Robin you’d know why it’s important to help. She’s a doll.”
Lange lives in Hoboken and the Salems live in Oradell.
Lange will also perform at a all-star benefit at the Stress Factory, tonight, for comedian The Reverend Bob Levy, who is recovering from a serious car accident.
