Analysis: A very emotional and open discussion between K.C. and the gang. Artie especially sums the feeling up nicely . . . . . K.C. was a huge asset to the Howard Stern show and he's genuinely missed by everyone.
Analysis: Without question, the K.C. interview was one of the most real and emotionally harrowing segments in Stern show history. The interview got off track when the focus was on K.C.'s anger toward Tom Chiusano and his frustration in explaining his feelings was obvious. In any event, K.C. fans, myself included, would find the interview difficult because it's clear that K.C. has a good heart and was absolutely a real talent on the Stern show. Robin's words ring true: "it was a terrible loss."
Who knows? Will K.C. rejoin the Stern show when it moves to Sirius (sans Chiusano)? It's a big "if," but K.C. fans can keep our fingers crossed. In any event, we all wish K.C. the very best.

The End of an Era: Well, after several months of hoping against hope, it appears that Kyle Casey (K.C.) Armstrong, will not be returning to the Howard Stern Show.
K.C. was a true talent and a genuine asset to the Stern Show. This likable lug had a great sense of humour and was an integral member of the Stern team. Although his good looks might have threatened some people, this was offset by the fact that he had enough emotional problems to fill a psychology textbook. K.C. was responsible for bringing the Singing Psychic ("Oh, the Red Sox will win the World Series. Yeah, yeah, yeah.") to the show and conducted a number of classic celebrity interviews (the Chevy Chase run-in being one of the more memorable).
Fans of the Stern show loved K.C. and he'll be sorely missed. At times Howard's interviews with a stripper or porn star could get stale. Nothing livened up these moments like K.C. bellowing "Come on! Show us your dumper!!!"
I started this webpage nearly five years ago with the first incredible revelation that K.C. once had a pet rabbit. Over the years I couldn't help but marvel at the many shocking tidbits that helped to make the Stern show so entertaining. K.C. leaves a real void and the Stern Show suffers as a result of his departure. In an ideal world K.C. would return to the Howard Stern Show and that lame, unfunny, no-talent Richard Christy would go back to his turnip farm in Kansas. But we don't live in an ideal world. K.C., you'll be missed.

The K.C. disappearance continues. Is this the end of K.C.?

Special added bonus: Enjoy this mp3 sound sample of Miss Howard Stern's famous catch phrase: "Thank you!".
K.C. has been on Prozac for two months. K.C.'s friends went to his older brother and they had an intervention. K.C. refused to listen to his brother so his brother beat him up. K.C. then went to a doctor and answered a questionnaire. While it's true that K.C. gets very little enjoyment from life, he confesses to Howard that he likes sex, gambling and drinking. K.C.'s doctor called him a "severe case."
As for the Prozac, K.C. says it doesn't work: "It sucks!"
In a disturbing revelation K.C. says that his family is the most important person in the world to him, but--paradoxically--that he has strange compulsions that, in order to protect them, he feels compelled to kill them.
K.C. confirms that he's taken steroids in the past and Howard speculates that this might be part of his problem.
Gary asks K.C. questions from a standard questionnaire that tests mental health. K.C.'s answers:
One caller tells K.C. that he needs to take anti-psychotic medicine and another tells the gang that she's "totally scared" for their lives and that Howard shouldn't eat any more food delivered by K.C. K.C. then tells everyone that he'd commit suicide if it weren't for the fact that he doesn't want to hurt other people.
Stuttering John says that, based on the Prozac web site, anyone exhibiting K.C.'s symptoms should go to the nearest hospital emergency room immediately.
K.C. calls into the show later to defend himself against the criticism of his stand-up career. Unfortunately K.C.'s home phone has been disconnected due to non-payment. K.C.'s voice can only be faintly heard over the $10 rent-a-cell-phone he was forced to use.
K.C. repeats his routine's closing joke: "What's the last thing a kid sees before he's killed by a child molester? My collection of Barney tapes! Good night!" Howard's only comment is a disgusted "Oh, my God."
Ed sums up K.C.'s lie detector results: "He's holding back. He was definitely deceptive."
Howard condemns K.C.: "You failed every question!" Always defiant, K.C. roars: "I'm a man of my word! I'm telling you I'm not gay! Get it through your head! I'm straight! Eat me!"
"Yeah! And it was a considerable amount. And I had to drive for an hour and a half serenading in that stuff."
"Marinating!!!" yells the gang.
"And then some came down my leg. It was funny, man! I was laughin'!"
"I'm fallin' apart, dude!"
Howard listens intently to the K.C. discussion and then offers some sound advice: "K.C., run don't walk to a doctor."
(Note: K.C. makes a common mistake. In fact, Van Gogh severed his own left earlobe.)
10. Gabrielle Reece *
9. Mandy Moore *
8. Jennie Garth
7. Britney Spears (K.C. elaborates: "Innocence transfers into HOT SEX!")
6. Elizabeth Hurley
5. Jennifer Aniston
4. Jenny Nolan
3. Pam Anderson
2. Christina Applegate
And K.C.'s choice for the #1 hottest woman alive . . . .
1. Anna Kournikova
* Actually a tie for 10th place.
Finally, Gay Ramone compiles his own top 10 list and ranks Brad Pitt as #8 and K.C. as #5. "Yeah!" K.C. roared in triumph. "I beat Brad Pitt! That's awesome!!!"
