Bombed! Comedian Nick DiPaolo and other Howard Stern regulars escape injury on USO tour

Normally, when there’s bombing in the vicinity of a comedy show, it’s due to terrible jokes, not mortar fire.

According to The Daily News, DiPaolo had just finished a show with fellow comedians Artie Lange, Jim Florentine and Dave Attell and Stern’s radio producer Gary Dell’Abate when the Kandahar base where they were performing came under mortar fire.
