    Fred Schreiber came into the limelight with many appearances on ‘The Howard Stern Show.’ He earned the name as he shared vocal similarities to the titular character of David Lynch’s ‘The Elephant Man.’ Soon, he became a card-carrying member of Howard Stern’s famous Wack Pack.

    Fred’s death shocked his fans, as sympathies and support continued to pour in. Howard Stern, the eccentric radio show host, remembers his longtime friend, recalling him with fondness, “Elephant Boy was a good dude,” Howard recalled. “He was a good-hearted guy and whenever we asked him to do something he was so thrilled to be a part of the radio show.”

    When Howard received his nomination for the Governor of New York at the Libertarian party convention, he sent Fred to receive it. For Stern, it made sense, as he said, “I knew Fred was the perfect person. He was quite the speech master and he got really f***ing excited sometimes… I mean you couldn’t ask for a better hype man.”
