Tucker Max Gets Clowned On The Opie & Anthony Show

Tucker Max was a guest on the Opie and Anthony Show on June 27, 2006 plugging his "book," I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell. I haven't listened to the entire interview, but apparently things got really interesting when Opie and Anthony started questioning the truthfulness of Tucker's stories. Things got so bad that by the end of the interview, Tucker Max supposedly looked like he was on the verge of tears.

This summary of what happened on the Opie and Anthony Show was posted on Wikipedia earlier today but was quickly deleted, probably by either Tucker Max himself or one of his mindless followers:
On June 27, 2006, Tucker appeared on the Opie and Anthony show on XM Satellite Radio. After telling his "Tucker Tries Butt-Sex" story, the interview quickly went sour. Upon further questioning, Max was unable to validate his story with the inability to be able to produce the tape in question, claiming that the cameraman vomited on it, thus destoying the tape. Max was also unable to produce a police report involving another woman's car and a parking mishap that resulted in a supposed collision with a donut shop. Opie and Anthony then led an unsuspecting Max into believing that his headphones had broken. While Max's headphones were off, Anthony told the audience that Tucker Max was a full of it, and called bravo sierra. The interview ended with allegations of Tucker being called a "liar" and comparisons to author James Frey. When leaving the studio, Opie allegedly threw his book at a window and tore it up. Max left the building giving poor Erock (show gopher) the middle finger. Tucker has since removed all mentions of this appearance on his website.

Tucker's appearance has been discussed in depth at the Opie and Anthony message board. Several Opie and Anthony fans have posted messages relating the interview and the truthfulness of Tucker on message boards on Tucker Max's website, but Tucker and his moderators deleted the messages right away. Tucker and his moderators supposedly have a reputation for quickly deleting any content from his message forums that is critical of him.

Here are two video clips of Tucker's appearance on the Opie and Anthony show from foundrymusic.com. In the first clip, Opie and Anthony call Tucker out for writing unbelievable stories but not being able to provide proof that the events actually took place:



In the second clip, Opie and Anthony make a valiant attempt to put an end to Tucker Max's endless bullshitting by pulling the old "hey, the microphone isn't working" trick....which works like a charm.

holy shit this is hilarious!

i never heard his voice or saw tucker max before, but in this interview he seems like he's clearly full of shit and knows he's not being believed. his online persona and real life person are so different. it puts into question everything he's written.

thanks for this blog, i was one of those guys who thought he was shit before.

Hey, if you ever had any doubt that Tucker Max was a bullshitter, consider this. Usually you can judge a man's character by the company he keeps. And look who's just joined the Festering Ass network?

Well what do you know, it's Machiavelli Jr., a.k.a. Robert Greene, the modern day prophet of being an amoral, deceptive, and fradulent bastard for your own personal gain.

And if you read the interview, Max says that Greene is one of his favorite authors.

This leads me to conclude that he's less of a bullshitter and more of an intentional fraud.

I guess you can kind of feel bad for them because if you read both of their bios, they both had rough times getting rejected in mainstream publishing early on.

A lot of times mainstream execs are retards who don't recognize good talent when it's first emerging if it's new or different.

It's just a shame when talented people like Tucker Max or Robert Greene end up letting the hard times early on get to them to the point where they lose all sense of morality or meaning to life and view it as a morally bankrupt struggle for power and dominance.

Such is the way of our world though.

Its funny that he claims to be able to take criticism, and he does post "negative" emails to him on his site, but most of these emails are only posted to further his asshole image. He does not post anything that makes him look uncool or vulnerable and certainly nothing that would contradict any of his stories that are completely fiction. I'd like to donkey punch him into oblivion.

Tucker Max is full of shit.

There's at least one schmuck like him in every fraternity house. They're entertaining as a whole, great guys to share a drink with, but exaggerate their conquests in order to entertain. But let's face it, Tucker Max is a charter member of the lucky sperm club. His father is a very successful restauranteur in Florida, which is what helped attract some golddiggers (like the vapid beauty queen). I've seen the same play used over and over by guys who would make Tucker look like a total dork. Nowadays he survives on girls with low self-esteem, who indulge him in order to validate themselves, in that they had sex with an Internet page celebrity.

He should live it up while he can. He can't be making that much money from his website (CPM ad rates suck for poorly focused sites), though I'm sure he made a small (non-sustaining) windfall on book sales. He's not a prolific writer, and outside of a few entertaining stories, his standard fare tends to be repetitive and dull. Worse, the fraternity crowd (core audience) will drop him as he ages. You fellow Greek society folks know what I'm talking about. There are few things more pathetic than watching some thirty-something drunk asshole trying to pick up sorority girls at a party. It makes you (intelligently) question where your own life is headed.

In the end, daddy's money will bail Tucker Max out as his online site falters. It's daddy's money that paid for University of Chicago and Duke (the scholarship on merit story and application essay are almost assuredly lies). I went to an Ivy League school, and I know smoother, richer versions of Tucker Max. If I ever somehow make it (who knows, I'm an entrepreneur), rest be assured: My son will not inherit much more than a nice house. Money creates comfort, laziness and self-indulgence; the essential ingredients of one Tucker Max.

I'd love to see some site like The Smoking Gun do a piece on Tucker Max.

I think the funniest thing about Tucker was when he had a thread on his board about "Does this board take criticism well", and when somebody was critical of him in a very understated and respectful way, one of his watchdogs had that person banned. Then Tucker went into a rant on how that person is "stupid, etc etc blah blah blah".

Tucker anonymously goes onto boards that are critical of him and claims the person critical of him is "jealous" of his success.

Let's look at his "success". He made the NYT list for 2 weeks. Good for him, well earned. But on further investigation, it's not really the main list, it's the "extended list", which means that the NYT doesn't measure ACTUAL SALES, it just takes a survey of certain bookstores and comes up with a somewhat arbitrary number. Tucker brags about selling 61000 books total for IHTSBIH. Okay, at 13 dollars a pop that comes out to 793000 bucks total. Tucker, if he got a GREAT book deal (and with only a 7500 dollar advance, it couldn't be that great) he got 12-13 percent of that which is around 100K. Then he's got expenses, like his agent, who is most likely taking 10% of that if not more, etc.

That's less that 100K that he earned on his book. I give the man props for selling his stories and getting them out there, but is that really something to brag about? I guess to a drunk elitist, it most certainly is. I guess it's enough to pay for some good hairplugs which he looks like he'll be needing in the next 3 years.

Hope he has enjoyed that 14:59 minutes of fame. My guess is that his TV deal goes into turnaround as soon as the producers realize what they are dealing with (yes there already is a slight buzz about Tucker in H-Wood, and it's not good).

Anonymous said...

Hahahaha.

Yeah man, Tucker is currently with Adam Sandler's production company I believe. Sandler's company is well known in LA for optioning everything under the sun.

Know how many TV shows Happy Madison Productions have actually gotten onto regular TV? None.

They're great if you want to get a mediocre film idea into theaters for one of Sandlers chums, horrible if you aren't friends with him personally. The company currently has about 14 TV ideas right now that they're looking to make a pilot of, with the intent of actually making only one of them. One of the producers he is dealing with has already said that his project is on the back burner, and they were really hoping that his book would do a lot better but are disappointed with the results.

The pilot will never make it out of casting.

I think as Tucker gets more and more famous, more and more people will start calling him on his stories.

A few months ago a Florida journalist did a piece on Max and his "famous Sushi" story. Problem was, Tucker's story didn't add up. There was no Sushi restaurant within miles of where he claimed the incident took place, and when pressed by the journalist he said something to the effect that "I was shitfaced drunk, how can I remember every detail?"

That's funny that you can remember "every detail" when you're shitfaced in other stories, but when pressed, it becomes incidental.

If Max becomes more popular there will be a lot more scrutiny of his stories and people will research them a lot more. If that happens I feel that there is a great chance that Max will become another James Frey, only without the book sales or Oprah appearances.

Anonymous said...

This is the beginning of the end for Max. This won't go away by him just ignoring it. If I were his publicist I wouldn't put him on any show without approving any and all questions for him.

If he loses his credibility, it's lights out for TM as a writer in a Frey sort of way, Have to say I was a fan of his until I saw the video. Now I see why his message board is "guarded" (it's not moderated, it's under lockdown, like a prison). They don't want to let anybody ask Tucker any uncomfortable questions that might expose his stories as false.

Hey anonymous (12:36 PM), it sounds as though you have a hard on for Tucker Max (or are you the real Tucker Max?). He's a douchebag and so are you. Many people think this website is funny and have added humorous comments. Tucker is a liar and will be exposed sooner or later.

He went out of his way to expose the beauty queen Katy Johnson as a hypocrit and liar. That's fine. But if he's going to treat other people like that he has to learn to accept the same criticism when he is also exposed as a liar and a hypocrit.

Anonymous said...

Why should you care, anonymous 12:36? Everyone here is being an asshole, like the love-of-your-life Tucker Max. They do it because he's a bullshit artist, and we do it because it's entertaining. If you had a brain cell, you'd understand that Max uses the same justification... though he's obviously much more sensitive to others playing the same game.

i dont know how old this conversation is because i wasnt paying attention to dates, but i just came upon this and am now very annoyed. seriousely who gives a fuck? especially you guys who claimed to be fans and now "feel betrayed" and what not, this is a situation where you turn the other cheek and enjoy some good stories true or not. either way TM found a way to make money entertaining us, so who fucking cares? i just hate people who bitch about stupid shit, and yes i know im doing it right now.

I'd just like to point out how UTTERLY "UNPOSSIBLE" it would be for Tucker Max to find this blog and post anonymous comments on it. There's NO WAY he could take time out of his nonstop beer-swilling, hot-chick-banging schedule to actually come here and pretend to be some random dude defending Tucker Max.

There's just no way.

Not only is Tucker Max a liar, I bet he isn't even straight. He admits on his website that he enjoys it when a woman eats out his asshole. That's just one small step away from having a giant male member penetrate his anus, and then it's A2M for Tucker A2Max.

No wonder the cum guzzling freaks Kung Fag Mike and JizzSlarvey are such fans of his.

I don't keep up with the Tucker Max and his manufactured bullshit, but has his book promotion tour has stopped dead in the water?

Fallout from the Opie & Anthony Show? Is he now afraid of follow-up questions? Or did his fifteen minutes of fame wane?

By the way, the Max book being named to the NY Times supplemental list is not indicative of good book sales. One guy got caught a few years back "buying" his way onto the list by ordering the book from select bookstores. Those bookstores were used by the NY Times to generate their supplemental best seller list. I could see Tucker Max using Daddy's money to pull a similar stunt.

Proof that the butt sex story and everything else the guy says is a crock of shit: in this version, he has his buddy in the closet. In the version I read on his site, his buddy is hiding behind the drapes. So which is it, fuckstain, the closet or the drapes? And yeah, the tape was magically erased because your friend fell down. You are an insecure young man, Tucker, and I pity anyone who wastes hard earned money on your piece of shit fairy-take book(s).

Hey (10/31/2006 2:14 AM), I have no jealously for anything regarding Tucker Max. However, I do have disdain for loudmouth egomaniac shitheads like him. He's the type of guy that always brags and brags about himself even when nobody gives a shit. People like him deserve to be called out for their bullshit.

Tucker Max is an asshole and would be living in a homeless shelter right now if he hadn't been born into wealth. He's a trust fund baby.

Everyone knows guys like Tucker Max. They BS and BS and BS some more in order to impress you and after a while they start to believe their own fucking lies.

I gave Tucker Max the benefit of the doubt in the beginning because I figured that with all the fame, and fans that he had he couldn't be lying.

After watching this video, I know. Its not just his feminine lisp insecure voice. Its the insecure way he handled the criticism. No real asshole or "alpha male" whose been through half the shit Tucker is supposed to have gone through would take it the way he did.

A real alpha male doesn't need to declare he is one. It just shines through. Tucker is a fuckstain who fucking lives off of his BS stories.

You know, I wondered about that too. At first, I was really surprised when Robert Greene of all people teamed up with Tucker Max to create his blog. It just seemed like a very strange decision on RG's part.

But now I'm wondering if there's something common running through these two characters. RG isn't stupid; he knows full well who Tucker is. Perhaps RG sees in Tucker some kind of soul mate? I do agree that you can get a good idea of a man's character by the company he keeps.

im pretty sure a majority of people who claim he is a fraud because he can not verbally express a story as well as he can in writing are very judgmental. i do not doubt for one second that he did do all that he said based on the fact that i know two guys that have done the same thing but on a smaller scale and as much as the stories sound made up, i personally verified the stories of my friends (not tucker max)and based on tucker's looks it only reaffirms the thought that he is telling the truth, my point being that my friends are NOT good looking by any means, but they do have a 'status' as did tucker he was an above average student who really didnt need to study and was from a well to do family therefore had a social status that is comparable to a football but with a little less publicity. i dont doubt his stories one bit and my friends are proof: they may not be morally sound, but if they have one moral it is never to lie

Stop calling out tucker for being a liar. Those guys brought him on the show having already made up their mind that he was lying. No matter what he said, they would not have belived him.

How do you respond to that? They ask him "So, am I reading this right...?" The hell is that? They attack him after bringing him on the show and don't laugh after anything he says, and then have thier little groupies boo along with them. Hypocritical at all?

The have thier groupies, he has his. Thier groupies think it's funny when he yells into the mic like a retarded ape. I think he's a fucking moron and the farthest thing from funny. Tucker's groupies find it funny that he gets belligerent and fucks girls. They think he's lame. It's like some gay high school rivalry and then Opie's groupies come on this site and call him out, when the entire interview was set up to do exactly that.

Tucker Max is funnier than a crippled guy getting hit in the face with crutches. It's funny to hear people hopelessly cast doubt on him because they can't imagine anyone kicking so much ass. This interview is pathetic...they cut his mic to gain an advantage. Oh and he did get a degree and is actually quite intelligent, he's just more outrageous than you pussies can handle. He'll be making money and getting famous when you guys will just be bitching about his book sales and complaining about how sad your life is.

Personally I don't care if he makes up some random thing he said while drunk, or if there's a goddamn sushie restaurant within miles of who-cares-where. And dumbasses, stop comparing him to James Frey, it's been done. James Frey was respectable and then lost that from bullshitting. Tucker has no respect, he admits to boning fat girls,insecure girls and stupid girls, so who gives a fuck.

My prediction: Tucker Max is going to continue becoming more and more famous while you morons will continue being vaginas and not getting any, while I, who can laugh at shit without getting all offended will continue to rule.

Haha, look at the rash of pro-Tucker posts suddenly thrown in. As if it isn't obvious they have a link to here from his forum. I thought his stories were funny, not neccesarily far-fetched, but the way certain details were noted and certain things seemed artificial made me suspicious. After seeing this I am positive that Tucker Max is a fucking liar. He looked like a pussy in that video. If he was really as charismatic as his alter ego that appears in his fiction stories then he would have cleverly turned it around on Opie and Anthony and no doubt insulted them. He is a pasty, lispy, stuttering fraud. The only people more pathetic than him are the kids worshipping him.

Most of Tucker's Stories aren't that far fetched. I know plenty of people who do stupid shit all the time. And as far as the butt-sex story, there is probably a good chance it has been a little exaggerated... he's a fucking writer. That doesn't mean there is no truth to it. It's very common for people to shit and bleed during butt sex if it is done improperly. Porn Stars frequently have enemas to avoid such situations. Was someone in the closet? Who cares.. if there was, I would bet money that they vomited over the situation, I know I would.

And Opie and Anthony run a show that is completely based upon drama. It didn't matter what story Tucker Max told in that interview... they already knew they were going to call him out, shut off his microphone and make him look like an ass. It's better for ratings, it's better for their show.. and as you can see by the title of this article, it has worked for some free publicity on the internet.

Good blog - keep it up! Tucker's bullshit needs exposing, not so much because he is a bullshitter, but because he and his sycophant crew act like fascists trying to keep his image carefully cultivated. They ban anyone even remotely voicing dissent or questioning veracity. They dog-pile glowing accolades to their little napoleon as he harshly criticizes anything anything he has not blessed as "funny" or "new".

All this in the name of money of course, because while Tucker's sexual escapades are childishly amusing, his sophomoric attempts to be a media mogul are a craven grab at being "rich" which he so desperately needs to fulfill some dark inner void. What he's achieving instead is notoriety as a pop-culture sad sack.

The butt sex story seems very familiar to an urban legend that I have heard before. I have had a couple people tell me that someone they know claimed to walk in on their roommate having butt sex with a girl in their living room and the girl was so started when they walked in on it that the girl shit all over the couch or floor. Tucker probably used this urban legend as the basis for his butt sex lie!
