See the ‘Elf’ Cast Nearly 20 Years Later

Artie Lange is the perfect mall Santa Claus in Elf, however, he has been very open about his struggle with drug addiction. Today, the comedian is sober and has his own podcast, Artie Lange’s Halfway House, which is on hiatus at the moment.

“Thanks to my fans for supporting the podcast. I’m so lucky to have you,” he recently wrote on Instagram. “I’ve decided to take a break from the show for a bit. I’ve got 3 years clean, it’s not that. I just need more time to focus on being healthy. I’ll be back when I’m better and I’ll be better when I’m back.”
