Rob, how tall do you think Howard is now? He is 66 years old, so I assume he's lost at least a little height.
Now could be starting to shrink a bit, but I've not looked at very recent comparisons of him.

I found something new and interesting regarding Howard’s stature on the back of the Swedish DVD version of Private Parts, I’ll try to translate as accurately as I can... “At least 200 centimeters tall, an appearance that won’t produce any money, and the possessor of – by his own admission – a ridiculously small private part”
Ethan99 said on 7/Jul/20
he gives me a very strong 6'5 impression or even a 6'6 frame. So a 196 cm on the dot is the lowest i could give him.

Howard Stern in 1986 next to 196cm (6'5") professional American football player, Mark Gastineau. Howard was legit taller than him. Howard was minimum 6'5.5" at his peak: Click Here
I don’t rule out 6’5.5 peak for Stern but you just said 6’5 American football player. Where is his measurement to prove he’s a legit 6’5”? And what time of the day did it take place if he did?

Strong 6'6" peak height for Stern is my guess now maybe 6'5.5 ish

Look 6'6 with legit 6'2 1/2 Ike Barinholtz. Some people will say Stern wear lift or Ike "slouch". Lol
Willes190 said on 6/May/20
Just rewatched private parts, Stern dwarfs actors in the 5’11-6’2 range.
Willes190 said on 29/Apr/20
Stern is way taller than 187cm Letterman shorturl.at/svR36 and dwarfs 5’11 Jay Leno shorturl.at/qEMN4
Canson said on 28/Mar/20
@Cmillz: maybe 196.5
cmillz said on 28/Mar/20
Peak was def 197 cm imo.
MBR said on 18/Feb/20
I met him (he kissed his wife in front of me) and he towered over my 6'3 presence. He looks 6'5.25.
said on 16/Jan/20
Do you think Howard edge out wrestler jbl in his peak ?
he might, 5.25 is really the lowest peak mark I'd give Stern
said on 28/Dec/19
@Rob: you should add that he claimed 6’5 or 6 once too
The video with the quote is gone now
Canson said on 28/Dec/19
@Junior: But you’re comparing him with both Anderson and Gordon. Anderson measured 6’8.5 and Gordon 6’2”. Gordon can look 6’2ish while Anderson can look 6’8” imho. Stern looks 6’5 and he is wearing boots as well
@Viper: I don’t rule that out but his prime may be more what Rob lists him
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 23/Dec/19
"Big" means in size, not just height. No one would probably call a 6'5" 150lb guy "big". But there's no minimum height or weight requirement to be considered big, because everyone has a different definition.
Xpac99 said on 23/Dec/19
I don’t understand when people said that a 6ft5 guy is not big guy, big guy is 6ft8+ . I’m slightly taller than you and guy like nonso seems huge at my eyes,but I believe he’s huge even if i was 5ft11 or 6ft
said on 22/Dec/19
I had asked for this because CH15 is 196,2 to the stadiometer (6ft5 1/4) and howard is listed 6ft5 1/4... if you consedering stern taller, without mention the hair, why you don’t give to stern a 6ft5 1/2 list?
I think Stern had a better chance of not falling shy of 5.25, although the challenger is technically 6ft 5 1/8th because of the small error with old stadiometer.
said on 22/Dec/19
Rob,who do you think would measure taller, howard or CH15?
Stern I think would probably be (and look) the taller in person, considering his hairstyle adds a bit of height too.
said on 21/Dec/19
You upgrade howard by 1/4 or i’m wrong? However Who could be taller howard or rory mccann?
Been on 1/4 for years, the argument is whether 1/2 inch is fair, like Bo Burnham I can see the case for it at times.
Matt logan said on 10/Dec/19
Canson said on 10/Nov/19
@Junior: I’m not sure how tall Anderson is. His per draft was 6’8.5” if that’s early morning it means solid 6’8” not 6’8.25”.
@Viper: I don’t rule it out completely but same time 6’5 3/8 like Christian. 6’5.5 peak would mean he woke up in excess of 6’6”. I could see that possibility
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 3/Nov/19
He def is 197cm peak. I wouldn't make compare of him with a hardly estimate height odd angle picture with 6'8 1/4 Ryan Anderson.
viper said on 1/Nov/19
6-5.5 for Stern peak is not out of the question IMO
Canson said on 22/Oct/19
@Junior: I think Anderson is 6’8” flat. He’s always got Gordon by 6”. Stern looks a legit 6’5” given he has more footwear. Maybe 196 cm max. I’m not so sure at his peak that he was 6’5.5”. Maybe 6’5.25 maybe 1/3”. That I could see. A strong 6’5”. He didn’t look a weak 6’6” guy tho
Canson said on 22/Oct/19

said on 21/Oct/19
@Canson Stern is not under 6'5 1/2 peak. He could be this listing now as many still thought he is taller maybe he isn't so 196cm fair listing. While this picture is hard to compare height which the ground and angle was odd Click Here
Ryan Anderson could just be 6'8 1/4 low but check on eye level doesn't look over 1.5" taller than Stern but from top of head it looks 2.5" but footwear and odd angle like i say it's hard to say but if Ryan is 204 cm then Stern look to be 6'6 in the picture.
said on 1/Oct/19
@Rob: to the caption above. he did say 6’5/6 once too. Not sure if maybe he got an early Morning measurement maybe more recently or if that’s him exaggerating a bit.
6ft 5.5 is a figure which could mean he has rounded down to 6ft 5, but also said 6ft 5/6.
Canson said on 1/Oct/19
@Joe: absolute max for his peak was 196-197. He may have just been solid 6’5” range all along really 195/196. That’s how he looks with Eric Gordon and Ryan Anderson and he was a good 2” shorter than magic which is the only reason I could say 6’5 and change. I have Magic 201/201.5 peak height
joe### said on 25/Sep/19
6'6 and 6'5.75 no chance magic had 2 inches on it and howard looked strong 6'5 (195-196) with trump.
said on 13/Aug/19
Eric Gordon is max 6’2” and Ryan Anderson 6’8.5 or 6’8” flat if he measured early morning. Stern has significant footwear advantages on both as he has boots on and still looks only 6’5” flat now. Peak maybe 6’5.5 or 6’5.25 but today no
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 11/Aug/19
Stern really look too tall to be only 6'5 even now at 64. I could buy a full 197cm peak and still 196.5cm.
Canson said on 5/Aug/19
Considering one poster met Jillette here and said that he wasn’t 6’7” and that he stood on his tip toes and another met him and said he was max 6’6”, I think I would have an easier time believing Stern’s own 6’5 claim rather than Penn. Stern might have been 6’5.5” peak height but I doubt any more than that
MeohtAiluj777 said on 4/Aug/19
Penn Jillete recently said that Stern was half an inch shorter than he is. He claimed to be "about 6ft7" while Stern is "just 6ft6".
Canson said on 2/Aug/19
@Rob: he’s always claimed 6’5” except that one below that Robbe Harris posted. That could very well be in shoes or him saying that he’s that with his hair styled like he said. Not ruling that out because I’ve always said a peak Stern could’ve been 6’5.5 but he looked no more than 6’5” next to 6’2 Eric Gordon and 6’8” Ryan Anderson in the pic they all had
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 26/Jul/19
I didn't know that Stern ever claimed 6'5"-6'6". I've only seen/heard him say 6'5".
Chris Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 24/Jul/19
Solid 197cm peak and 196.5cm now. I still can't see it if he was only 6'5 1/4 now.
said on 17/Jul/19
@Rob: key phrase “many”. He may not have been that however. There’s always the possibility he was always a classic 6’5 or 6’5-6’5.25 range and just 6’5.75 or 6’5 7/8 range out of bed
Well if he came out with 6ft 5 / 6 like previously mentioned, that could be an admission of somewhere in between.
Robby Harris said on 17/Jul/19
I could see him being a legit 6'5.5" if he straightened out. 6'6" out of bed easy.
said on 17/Jul/19
He mentioned he's either 6'5" or 6'6" at the 5:30 mark in this clip:
He certainly had at least a good 3" on 6'2" peak Trump back in 1993:
said on 15/Jul/19
@Rob: at his peak he may have been 6’6” out of bed. I can easily see that and see 6’5.25 being his afternoon height. I don’t rule out 6’5.5 but I also don’t rule out 6’5”. The man is very thin, has long hair, and others here that are compared to him, there is no guarantee that you listed them at Afternoon heights
I don't think many would argue he was less than 6ft 6 out of bed
said on 15/Jul/19
Rob, Any Chance of Howard Actually being 6'6"!? Or in His Prime/Youth Reaching that High!? Because Stern looks Awfully Tall, if You Ask me.
6ft 5.5 yes, but a full 6ft 6? I am not sure he ever hit that mark.
Canson said on 2/Jul/19
@Junior: I’m never as high as 6’4.5 at a low. Some days 6’4.25 others 6’4.3. I do currently claim 6’4 but have claimed 6’4.5 in the past and 6’5 when I played ball but that was rounded up from 6’4.5. If I were more 6’4 3/8 at a low or 1/3 I would still claim the 4 1/2. But I get sick and tired of the wishful rounding and the people who say claim 6’5 or why bother with half just say 6’4”.
viper said on 27/Jun/19
I don't think Howard has lost anything.
Always been 6-5
Junior Hernandez 1990
said on 25/Jun/19
Rob, do you agree that Stern downplay half inch and a tiny bit more for his peak? Example he was 197.2cm peak a low and just bring down a 6'5 claim. Because i hardly see him under 197cm even today he can still hold on looking it.
Most people seem to think Howard has dropped a fraction, whether 1/4 or 1/2 inch, I would say it's somewhere amongst that mark.
viper said on 24/Jun/19
170 is the most I would guess for Howard there.
6-4 Jeff Goldblum was 170 in Body Snatchers and he looked bigger than Howard there.
said on 22/Jun/19
Rob, how much do you think Howard weighted in this picture?
Also, do you think that 6f5 1/2 is more likely for Howard than a full 6ft5?
Would really appreciate an answer.
Well under 200 pounds, like 180
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 14/Jun/19
@Canson I bet you often claim 6'4 and you're .25" and sometimes .5" right? Same as Stern could be measure out 6'5 1/2 and just don't bother the 1/2 and go with 6'5 all the time. He maybe this listing now and dipping into 6'5 soon. Still haven't see him under 196cm yet. A few picture could not prove the truth because sometimes he look on the higher side 6'6 and other time like he can slouch with Jimmy Kimmel and look 6'4 range.
said on 30/May/19
How is he 6’5.75 next to a 6’2 and a 6’8 range guy? He’s 6’5 like he says. Peak height probably how Rob lists him
Stern is also wearing boots while Eric Gordon and Ryan Anderson are both in canvas shoes. Stern is max 6’5” today
James G. said on 26/May/19
Canson said on 19/May/19
@Junuor: highest I could see him peak was 6’5.5 at a low but prob just what Rob lists him.
Mickie said on 16/May/19
196 cm guy at his peak. I'm not really a fan.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 6/May/19
Truth he always edge out lots of 6'4 guys by 1.5". Peak def is closer to 6'6 and 6'5.25" absolutely lowest.
Damon Blank said on 30/Apr/19
I'd be surprised if he was 6 ft 5 (196 cm) or less. He is tall.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 22/Mar/19
@Canson I go with the estimate of standard listing in this site. You can have Conan 6'3-6'3.25" but i have him 6'3.75" but to the respect of listing Stern deserved 6'6 upgrade (more accurate he is 6'5.75" peak) and holding 6'5.5" now. Really 6'5.25" wasn't enough for him.
Canson said on 9/Mar/19
He doesn’t look 6’6” with Conan. It’s because Conan is not a proper 6’4”. Peak height for Conan was a weak 6’4 maybe strong 6’3”. Howard peak was likely a strong 6’5 maybe max 6’5.5 but that may not even be his low at his peak. If anything Stern’s 6’5” claim is more legit and proper than Conan’s 6’4” claim. Stern next to 6’2” Eric Gordon and 6’8” range Ryan Anderson looks 6’5 especially given he was wearing boots
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 7/Mar/19
@rawdshaq I wouldn't think he is only 6'5 if he did come out his mouth for this claim. Look 6'6 with Conan O'Brien, Dan Reynolds and peak Magic Johnson plus a dozen celebrities.
rawdshaq said on 3/Mar/19
Howard has commented how much he hates being tall, he might be the only person who says they are shorter than they actually are. He really can look 6'6" sometimes.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 21/Feb/19
@Canson I'm holding dual citizen as i consider myself canadian and i was born in the US. Shortly after a few months since birth my entire family flee to canada and i grew up in Vancouver most of my life. But at least the two guy admit their real height, the stubborn 6'6 guy i knew for over 10 years never had a word out claiming 6'6 or admit it.
@Dream(5'9.5") No that 6'6 guy name Richie was a visitor here several years back, he was my high school senior since a decade plus ago and his a nutcase 6'6 want to be known as 6'5. lol.
Canson said on 12/Feb/19
Looks 6’5” with a peak Donald Trump who was 6’2” at that stage
Dream(5'9.5") said on 30/Dec/18
I have question: Does the guy, who claims to be 6'5" but is really a solid 6'6", is named Jeffrey? Is he an old man? Does he happen to have a house cat and one fat kitty?
Canson said on 18/Dec/18
@Ian555: at his Height it’s kinda understandable. He probably doesn’t want to be any taller. Or it could be that his lanky skinny build just gives off a taller impression than he is. I could buy him only being 6’5” as I’ve seen guys look similar to him in height that are honest claiming 6’5”. Or could be like you measuring 1/8” over the mark but not over 1/4”
said on 17/Dec/18
Rob with guys like Ike Barinholtz, who's about 6' 2.5" and with Dan Reynolds who looks 6' 4", he looks 6' 6" or 6' 7". I originally guessed him to be 6' 6" so I was surprised to find out he's only 6' 5". Do you think he had the advantage in footwear or do you think he just had better posture because with Barinholtz both seem to stand with pretty good posture?
I think Stern always has a hair advantage, and at times he has better posture than we might imagine...but he may also be rounding down his height. Whether it's only 1/4 or more like half inch or so is debatable. Maybe he simply doesn't care about fractions so never claimed one.
Canson said on 11/Dec/18
@Junior: where do you live? Are you in the US? I don’t know why I thought you lived overseas
Canson said on 7/Dec/18
@Junior: that’s nuts! Ive seen one or two guys in my lifetime do that. They were 6’6” or close enough and claimed 6’5”. One admitted it that he’s a full 6’6” the other tried to claim 6’5.5 and he slouched very badly. He stood up when just he and I and he was easily 197 range minimum. I was in sneaks he was in flats and still noticeably taller. But then I’ve seen the opposite. I’ve seen where someone I went to college with would compare his height to our starting shooting guard who was listed 6’5. I was listed 6’6” and played the 3. We were consistent tho because the guy was really 6’3.5 tops and listed 6’5” but when you asked his height he claimed 6’3/6’4. Yet this one guy would say well I’m the same height as so and so so I’m 6’5”. I thought the guy was crazy but that was just how height inflation was and still is. One guy who knew him since middle or high school and went to school with us said he himself was 6’0” and measured him at 6’3.5. He argued that there was a 5” difference and it was barely over 3”. He made all types of excuses. Broken tape measure being most common then that he didn’t measure him properly. He would argue with people when they told him he wasn’t that height that people just stopped even commenting when he claimed 6’5”. They’d just laugh instead or not say anything and when they laughed I could see the embarrassment on his face. He knew he really wasn’t.
said on 6/Dec/18
Rob, how big is his head?
Over 10 inches flat might be possible...but his hair seems to add to how long it looks.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 3/Dec/18
@Canson I did and came out almost his lowest at 198.5cm barefoot (mid afternoon) and he still denied it and look at his two sister and say no "i'm 6'5 and i think the stadiometer you guys put me up measured was a lie" and everyone around starts the laughter. Stadiometer adds up 2mm which he is still 6'6 flat holding through the night. That was few years back and now he still claim 6'5. Lol..
Canson said on 27/Nov/18
@Junior: you should offer to measure the guy lol
Junior Hernandez 1990
said on 27/Nov/18
Next to 6'4 Dan Reynolds Stern just nothing less than 6'6 3/4 after deduct off Stern little footwear advantage and head little closer to camera can still get a 6'6 deep impression. Click Here
Could be Dan dropping abit posture here. I don't care if he still going to claim only 6'5. 6'5 1/4 seem challenging low taking more look. I have know a 6'6 guy pushing claim that he is 6'5 and strange he isn't under 6'6 in person and everyone knows it.
Canson said on 20/Nov/18
If we look closely, he does look around a 6’5” guy just with really thick hair. That’s the same reason people believe Conan being 6’4 or 6’4/6’4 1/2. Clear as day 6’3-6’3.5 especially with Barkley or Kobe or Homme. On the flip side, Stern would measure 6’6 or a bit more in a pair of dress shoes
Canson said on 20/Nov/18
@Dream: he does edge out Robbins. Robbins claimed to be 6’4.5 I would have a peak Stern as Rob has him listed here. Stern likely a strong 6’5 at his peak. Today he may be something like (6’5) whereas peak 196-197ish (6’5.25-.5)
Dream(5'9.5") said on 19/Nov/18
He actually edges out Tim Robbins.
Canson said on 3/Nov/18
Well said Christian!
@MrTBlack: that’s always possible. I would say that I could conceivebaly see the listing Rob has for him above being his low in his prime meaning he would likely touch 6’6” out of bed. Maybe even a 6’5 3/8 which would possibly put him a tiny hair over 6’6” upon waking. I can see a solid 6’5 today however
said on 25/Oct/18
Rob, what's your guess on Howard's weight?
I don’t know what he claimed but he looks well less than 180
MrTBlack said on 19/Oct/18
I am unsure about him being as high as 6’6” but I do think him being a 6’5.5” guy who didn’t bother with the half inch is entirely possible.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 3/Oct/18
Doesn't matter if he always wear ballet slippers, that still wouldn't change the fact that his height is massive. I think he wears thick footwear for style, like Dream said. The thing about being tall, is that you can't make yourself shorter or appear to be. Maybe wear thinner shoes or hunch down but that's it. If you're short and wanna be or appear taller, you can always choose lifts or elevators or get limb lengthening surgery, although it's risky, painful and expensive.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 3/Oct/18
@Robby Harris I wouldn't call him the worst judge. He did claim 6'5" and he really looks over it, like Bo Burnham and Metta World Peace.
Robby Harris said on 3/Oct/18
I would bet he was at LEAST 6'5.5", if not a little more back in the day! He had more than 3" on a 6'2" peak Trump. Howard is a serious sloucher and probably lost a bit of height. 6'5" flat today isn't unreasonable. He's the worst judge on height though lol.
Canson said on 2/Oct/18
@Viper: he probably doesn’t realize how much they add along with his long thick hair. That’s why people think conan is taller than he is when he’s 6’3” ish
Dream(5'9.5") said on 2/Oct/18
It might be more for ‘style’ than height.
viper said on 1/Oct/18
I thought Howard hated being 6-5.
Why would he wear big footwear
Canson said on 1/Oct/18
@184guy and Dream: I wouldn’t argue Stern being above 6’5 flat peak maybe 6’5.25 but today next to Eric Gordon and Ryan Anderson looks a solid 6’5”. Gordon shows 6’2 pre draft Anderson 6’8.5. Not sure what time of the day but KROC a former poster here met Gordon and said he’s 6’2” in person. Anderson may be closer to 6’8”. I could buy a 196 cm Stern today but no higher. Peak maybe 196.5 but that’s about as high as I could give him. Magic Johnson was likely not 6’7.5 but more 6’7-6’7.25 and he had Stern by 2”
Dream(5'9.5") said on 1/Oct/18
I think Bo, Peyton Manning, and Howard Stern would look the same. Howard tends to wear big footwear, a lot. Bo tends to wear a lot of light sneakers. Peyton, I’m not sure of. Feel free to disagree with me, but here’s my opinion:
Howard might the closest to 6’5.5”. (He actually holds very well with Magic Johnson). Bo would be more a good 6’5.25” person. (He edged out Pete Holmes, looked taller than Kobe Bryant (with a comparison with Michael Carter-Williams), and looked taller than 6’6” listed Owen Benjamin. Also, Burnham made 6’2” TJ Miller look under 6’0”). Peyton Manning would be more of a 6’5 1/8th” guy though. He still edged out Kobe Bryant, and Cam Newton. Peyton actually edges out Michael Jordan, if we make a comparison with Usian Bolt.
Canson said on 30/Sep/18
@184guy: yea he can at times. I don’t know what’s up with the pic with Trump because it looks more but could be the angle. Maybe a strong 6’5” peak or pushing 6’5.5. We can’t see footwear with he and Trump tho
@Dream: in other points of the video he’s 2” shorter than Magic. His long thick hair gives the illusion that he’s taller than he really is.
184guy2 said on 24/Sep/18
This listing is wrong . An old Howard looks taller beside Jimmy Fallon than guys like Peyton and Bo Burmham
said on 11/Aug/18
Howard made Trump look 6'1" at best. Howard isn't even standing at his best.
Also, Stern actually 'Looked' only 1 inch or less, smaller, than Magic Johnson at 8:06 seconds, in the video.
Here's Magic with Kobe Bryant at 1:33 seconds, in the video.
In comparison, Howard Stern does look taller than Kobe Bryant when comparing them with Magic Johnson
Layla said on 30/Jul/18
Howard has often metioned how he has bad posture. He has a habit of slouching because he’s so tall, he hates how he looks standing next to people.
said on 14/Jul/18
@Junior and Dream: maybe peak could be something like what Christian measures. But today he “may” look 6’5.25 or 196 but can also look 6’5” at a low. 6’5 5/8 peak looks awfully high but I can agree peak he was prob over 6’5” flat at a low. With Eric Gordon and Ryan Anderson below (6’2 pre draft) and 6’8.5 pre draft he looks 6’5ish. I almost believe Gordon’s being near a low but Anderson looks closer to 6’8”. I cant exactly tell what type of shoe (basketball or canvas shoe) the two Basketball players are wearing but Stern has boots on apparently. He doesn’t look as high as 196.5 with them he looks a legit 6’5” tho. Peak height may be what Rob has him listed
Dream(5'9.5") said on 10/Jul/18
Now that you mentioned it, I think it’s possible for Stern to be 6’5.5” too! Maybe even 6’5 5/8.”
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 9/Jul/18
@Dream(5'9.5") Quite true. But there might be higher chance a peak Howard Stern be 6'5 5/8 downplay 6'5. Likely now Stern could only edge out Bo by small fraction. I estimate that Stern might still measure at 6'5 3/8 now.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 5/Jul/18
@Junior Recently, Bo Burnham has a upgrade to 6'5 1/4". I buy it too. Howard Stern could be exactly like 'JJ Watt' in height.
I bet if Bo and Howard were to stand together, there wouldn't be any difference between them.
Junior Hernandez 1990

@Canson Atually look 4.5cm max between him and Magic. Looking how Howard Stern look abit under 2" shorter than peak 6'7 1/2 Magic i cannot believe his 6'5 claim. I would thought min 6'5 3/4 and he still look 6'5 1/2-6'5 3/4 now with every celebrities who attend his show. 6'4 Dan Reynolds (half inch less shoes) make Stern look 6'7 Click Here
Dan look slight loose maybe drop half inch posture. Thinking Stern at 6'5 1/4 i would have thought Bo Burnham struggle to reach 6'5. Just funny how those people who claim 6'5 and who really telling the truth and who really downplay it. Example Pete Holmes claim it and immediate destroy by Conan O'brien on his show and Bo Burnham who can look an inch on Pete. Howard Stern himself consistently claim 6'5 and everyone thought he was like 6'6-6'7 and his not. Bo Burnham claim 6'5 and majority most people think he is 6'5 1/4 include myself i can still see him looking it. Someone who met both peak Vince Vaughn and Stern says that is solid inch different between this two tall fellas. I really had a hard time thinking it and scratching my head, my other thoughts is Howard Stern was really 6'5 1/2 at low but downplay 6'5 but still holding it now and Magic was fraction under 6'7 1/2 peak. But still doesn't make sense because that will put Dan Reynolds at 6'3 and he clearly look 6'4 with 6'2 1/2 Dolph Lundgren on a music video and Rob had met Dolph Lundgren in real took picture. Click Here
0:51 can see 1.5" differences. If to leave Dan 6'4 then Howard stern should be at least 6'6 still don't add up. If Stern is only 6'5 1/4 then both Dolph Lundgren and Dan Reynolds need a 3/4 downgrade.
Canson said on 21/Jun/18
@Junior: I wouldn’t doubt peak height close to what Christian is as a strong 6’5”. Id actually argue that for him. Today however he does look 6’5” flat or near it with Ryan Anderson and Eric Gordon. Anderson was a morning measurement 6’8.5 so prob 6’8 and he had Stern by about 3”. Maybe 196 or a low of 6’5” doubt under the more I see. As for Magic I saw about 2” there between them.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 21/Jun/18
@Canson Stern still don't look flat 6'5 yet. I can tell you 6'5 1/2 peak is possible how he make a solid 201cm peak Magic look 6'6.5" when he put words that he is 6'5. There is only 1.5" between both their peak range. That is impossible because Magic still look at least 6'7 now so peak could be really close to 6'7.5"
Canson said on 11/Jun/18
@JamesB: I doubt Stern is much under 6’5” flat. If he’s lost height it’s been very recent and he may dip to something like 195cm because of age. He likely was a hair over 6’5” peak but I doubt he would maintain 6’5.5 like some say. That says more to his body proportions than to him actually being that much over
James B 171.5cm
said on 9/Jun/18
rob he was described as 6'4 in a dailymail article
I think the journalist should be fired for that!
But really, he's what most people would call a BIG 6ft 5 guy...
Canson said on 5/Jun/18
@Junior: that’s possible. He may have lost some. 6’5 is arguable as well today but peak he was 6’5 1/4 at least
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 27/May/18
I don't see Stern look to lost much height maybe 1/4 at most. 6'5 1/4 is believable for a current height. There is chances that he downplay a half inch during peak.
Canson said on 22/May/18
@Christian: at least when it comes to his peak. Today he may be only a flat 6’5”
Canson said on 21/May/18
@Christian: yea he’s 6’5”. But it’s probably similar to your case how you’re guessed at 6’6-6’7 pretty regularly or I have been guessed 6’5-6’6 being you don’t usually get all of the way down to 6’5 or I don’t to 6’4”
Christian-6'5 3/8" said on 19/May/18
He can appear 6'7" due to his build but in actuality he's not.
David Allen Patrick Maddox III said on 19/May/18
he looks 6’7
Christian-6'5 3/8" said on 18/May/18
I'm sure Stern likely gets guessed 6'6"-6'7" by a lot of people.
Canson said on 17/May/18
I would say Stern would come out a good 2cm taller than Barkley even at their peaks. I doubt Stern dips below 6’5” at a low even today whereas Barkley was likely never even a full 6’5 at a low in his peak. Stern has a better chance of having been 6’5.25-.5 at his peak than just a flat 6’5. I’d say no less than 6’5.25. He looks taller however due to his long hair and limbs, as well as his build as he is very thin. He also has a very long face and likely was 6’6 out of bed at his peak
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 16/May/18
Just being honest if i don't know Howard Stern claim 6'5 i would have thought he was a legit 6'6 guy.
Dream(5'9.5 said on 13/May/18

Yes, the guy beside him is under 6ft for sure...as are the rest of them.

With the band 'Hum' who I believe all of which are sub-six-footers
Animus said on 23/Mar/18
196cm is fine for Stern. That's extremely tall - rarely will he meet someone taller than him.
Artie Lange can look 5'9 with Norm Macdonald but no taller than that.
Canson said on 27/Feb/18
@Anonymous: half the people that put him at the listing 6’6/6’7 are the ones who inflate people and use other listings for other celebs and don’t want to downgrade them so they upgrade him. He’d be 6’6.5 with dress shoes at his peak. But Even a barefoot peak 6’5.5 seems up there for him at a low. That’s a possibility but could be a stretch. I think a best case for him at his peak is what Rob has him listed and likely a flat 6’5 today. A barefoot 6’5.5+ would generally give a 6’6” impression to most people to be honest. Most people’s listings are at least half inch off here
said on 17/Dec/17
Rob, how tall do you think comedian Artie Lange is?
Editor Rob: quite average

That photo above is a textbook example of what 6ft5 should look like. He's actually standing reasonably well for once...

I don't look anything above this listening. I don't understand people puting him at 6'6 / 6'7, that's absolutely crazy.
said on 3/Nov/17
Rob, I had downloaded some old Howard Stern archive shows and heard a game they did who's taller than a member of the show game. The member of the show was 5 ft 7 measured and they said Daniel Radcliffe was taller than him at 5 ft 8, also Hillary Clinton was 5 ft 8.5! They said Sylvester Stallone and Tom Cruise both 5 ft 7. I think every height I heard them compare was off but these are the most outrageous examples. Where Hillary Clinton and Daniel Radcliffe 5 ft 8 on the web in 2007 to 2008?
Editor Rob: they surely are trolling a bit with crazy estimates!
Hilary might have been on the web somewhere at that mark, I haven't checked though!
Canson said on 21/Oct/17
In that pic considering he has dress shoes he does look a legit 6’5”. That’s how they look, folks. Not a 6’4 guy like Vince Vaughan or a 6’3 guy off the street who measures in the morning and claims their shoes.
Canson said on 30/Sep/17
I think that's his peak height 196/196.5 max. Today he looks a classic 6'5" no change.
said on 29/Sep/17
Rob, you should link underneath the picture Howard with Beth Ostrosky with a link to her page
Editor Rob: there's about 3000 pages I still to get interlinking sorted for, but updating pages is a never-ending process 😁

@Arch: here Shaq says he's 6'11" on his show after he tells Howard he's 6'6/6'7". The lady here also vouched for stern. Maybe peak I can believe 196-196.5 st his lowest but who is to say trump was really a solid 6'2" peak or when he had pic with stern. Nor do we see footwear that they're wearing in your pic. 6'5" while not terrible height creates inconveniences at times. Today less so than years back because everything has grown but I remember a time when 6'5" wasn't desireable either. I'm a bit above 6'4" myself at a little under 194cm and prefer 6'4" over 6'5". At this height it makes no difference about being taller. Just more problems. Nothing that 6'5 gives you that 6'4 doesn't. Therefore being my low is 6'4 1/4-3/8 I go with 6'4" claim
Canson said on 25/Sep/17
@Arch: 6'5" is very tall as well. And shaq claims a shoe height so he was giving Stern one as well. He also claimed he's 6'11 here so I don't know necessarily if we can simply believe stern is 6'6/6'7. I believe his 6'5" claim especially when two posters NY Bruin Nad Bobby3342 said the same. Sure we can't believe everyone who meets someone but both said the same. Peak height maybe was 6'5.25-.5 range

Shaq estimated Stern at 6'6-6'7. Stern said he hates his height and finds it being a "drag" being tall. Just ther sort of person to downgrade their height Canson.. Darius Campbell claimed 6 ft 2 once, doesn't mean he really is.
said on 23/Sep/17
I honestly couldn't believe that this picture was real at first....Howard looks almost COMICALLY tall compared to his entire staff department. And no, they aren't all just a bunch of Oompa Loompas!
Canson said on 22/Sep/17
@Willes: Peak height may have been like Rob has him listed above as a low today I doubt he's over 6'5". Just because others claiming 6'4" or 6'5 or whatever don't look as tall with him doesn't mean he is downgrading his height it could also mean the others aren't as tall as they claim. I mean you claim to have such a high IQ yet you fail to realize height varies throughout the day so a 6'3.75 guy that is measured an hour out of bed and claims 6'4 may be 6'3.25 at night meaning not a legit 6'4. Or a 6'3 guy who claims his shoes will say 6'4 and not be it really. By deduction That makes Howard look taller than he is when he's telling the truth all along. I know you don't like downgrading celebs below Rob's listing but don't think your rationale is adequate or fair to be saying people downgrade just because they look taller than they claim against someone that you have never measured or even met in person. That is foolish thinking and doesn't reflect someone with the IQ you claim to have
said on 22/Sep/17
@Willes188: you're delusional for the love of God when you measure him and prove that I will believe you. Was your first word you learned out of your mother's womb downplay? Or do you just downplay your own height so you asssume everyone else does it too? You have two people here on this site (Bruin and Bobby3342 who have met him and said he's 6'5 so I choose to believe them since they've actually met him in person over you). Sorry you make everyone taller than they are and are probably under the influence when you make your assessments and have an agenda to make guys taller in Hollywood
Editor Rob: sometimes reading old newspapers, it's interesting seeing some descriptions. I've seen newspapers call Stern 6ft 4 and someone like Brian Dennehy 6ft 5...

Canson said on 24/Aug/17
If he claimed 6'5" that's most likely what he was somewhere around 6'5". This just points out that the other claims of 6'4" and 6'5" are not as legit as people think. I can say by looking at him that he isn't as tall as Carmelo Anthony is a legit 198-199 in person just like his pre draft states
Junior said on 24/Aug/17
I would have say he lost a little height maybe small fraction and still hit 6'5.5 now than 6'5.25" sound too low. Peak height must have clear 6'6 on a good day and a solid 6'5.75".
said on 22/Aug/17
Rob, is 6'5.5 peak and 6'5 current (at age 63) out of question ?
Editor Rob: well, Stern says he was measured at 6ft 5 - it is entirely possible it was over 6ft 5 and the person read out 6ft 5...
Willes188 said on 14/Aug/17
He was close to it in his youth and definitely measured it in shoes
Junior said on 13/Aug/17
I thought he was close to 6'6
Canson said on 28/Jul/17
One of the few legit 6'5" guys here listed that way
KH said on 28/Jul/17
I think Stern had to be pretty close to 6'6 in high younger days. Remember he has a complex over his height and if anyone would lie and say they were a little shorter then they really were its Howard.
insomniak said on 27/Jul/17
@Blake good find. Now It makes you wonder how tall the rest of them are. His height was tricky to gauge as he had no good height comparisons to anyone of known height.
Willes188 said on 26/Jul/17
He has said on his show before that he had big social problems in his youth because of his height.

Rob, could you believe Stern being 6 ft 6 in his youth look at him next to this 6 ft 4 listed singer he must have been just under 6 ft 6 in his 20s Click Here
Canson said on 13/Jun/17
It's safe to say that a guy who wakes up at a full 6'6" would be guessed at 6'5" by many then 6'6" by people who measure in the morning and round up or claim shoes and those around them that's perspectives are skewed as a result. That said Stern likely isn't waking up that high or more 6'5.75 and a flat 6'5" normally at afternoon. It's based more where you fall at the end of the day a full 6'5 down to 6'4.5ish wearing normal 1" footwear will almost always still look 6'5" to well informed people whereas a strong 6'5 may pull the 6'6" look especially if they are over 6'6" in shoes at night especially when you have eye opening measurements for some people an hour after they wake up where they are told "you're 6'5" or even told you're 6'4 5/8 or 3/4" and will say well you're an inch taller so Howard is 6'6" by deduction at that stage even tho he may have measured 6'5 or 6'5 1/8 at night
Canson said on 11/Jun/17
Peak height was 6'5,25 like rob has today 6'5. Bobby along with another poster confirmed that. He's 6'6 to so many people because the 6'4 and 6'3.5 guys claiming 6'5 make him by deduction look biggger
Spencer said on 10/Jun/17
6'6 . He looks bigger than 6'5 always has .

Rob, who do you think would be taller in their peak? Peak Howard Stern or Peak Joey Ramone?
Editor Rob: Ramone can seem to give a taller impression

You could be right about benjy because artie was way taller, i would think robin is 5'5.5 she got towered by howard even in heels. Scott depace looks 6 ft not quite 6'1.
Blake said on 8/Jun/17
I agree with most of them I actually think benjy may be more 5 ft 6.5 he claimed 5 ft 9 but said he was lying.a couple you others you missed out Scott Depace, Robin I can think of off the top of my head.
insomniak said on 7/Jun/17
I saw a photo with Zachary levi with ralph and jason kaplan and raplh looks 6'1 and jason 5'11 although i always thought ralph looked 183cm-184 with howard. This is how tall the rest are.
Benjy-170 he looks shorter than gary.
Artie-174cm i agree he looks close with ralph macchio.
Jd-173 he looked a cm taller than ed sheeran.
Will-179cm he looks average in weight and height.
Jon Hein-188cm looks taller than scott the engineer who looks 5'11
Ronnie-he was measured 5'7.5 but that was to the top of his hair i think he'd be 169-170cm. Id like to hear your opinions and if i missed any other people.
Blake said on 7/Jun/17
@insomniak I saw artie claim in the weight loss competition 5 ft 10! Yh he can look similar to Ralph Machio in photos from beer league. I always thought of Ralph as like 5 ft 11 but looking at him in photos he actually looks over 6 foot!
insomniak said on 2/Jun/17
I saw that picture baba's kids seem over 6 feet. Artie said in a video he thinks he's 5'8 and half in a video where they bring in a guy to ask out robin and he took off his shirt. Have you seen the video where jd claims he's 5'11 and they all harp on him of his ridiculous claim. Also Fred claimed 6'2.5 in a video but I don't think he looks that tall in the howard stern male staff beauty contest he looks like 6'0-6'1 and Jackie,was a little a taller than gary,while gary was a little taller then stuttering John,also Ralph looked close in height to Fred. I suggest you watch it to compare all their heights.
said on 30/May/17
@insomniak Yh I reckon all between 5 ft 8-9 maybe Artie is a solid 5 ft 9. I saw a photo of Gary with his sons they are massive compared to him now definitely got their height (and teeth) from Mary! Click Here
insomniak said on 29/May/17
It seems that jd,richard,sal,Artie would all be strong 5'8's and gary,ronnie seem 5'7ish everyone aside from howard and fred are all below 6'0 which would perpetuate his tallness.
said on 25/May/17
Rob, any idea on the height of the guy in the picture?

I always suspected that his consistent 6'5" claim was self-downgrading. Glad to see I was probably correct.
Canson said on 13/May/17
@Shiva: disagree with you wholethartedly. Reliable people here such as Bobby3342 have met him and said he's 6'5. So sorry the 6'5.25 is not an extreme low. He likely falls under at an extreme low. A guy his size won't likely lose a full inch in a normal day. Look at Lille Thomas and Christian both wake to 6'6" and are 6'5.25 at night even Ali Baba as a legit 6'6" peak didn't lose the inch neither did SJH who's 6'7". Stern peak maybe was 198-198.5 out of bed and 196-196.5 today 195.5-196 at his lowest

197.5 today out of bed

@Rob: wow you think he was 6'6.5 out of bed in his prime? That's interesting! I'd have guessed him as a clean 6'6" maybe and what you have him 6'5.25 maybe give 1/8" in each direction
Editor Rob: there's definitely a chance
said on 23/Apr/17
Rob, I don't know if your familiar with the show at all but i'm really interested in the heights of the staff on his show if you have any guesses on any I would appreciate it.
Editor Rob: I only really listened to clips with height, so beyond a few people not really that knowledgeable.
said on 22/Apr/17
Do you think a 20 year old Howard Stern busting a gut could have hit 6 ft 6?
Editor Rob: earlier in the day he may well have measured very comfortably over 6ft 5, possibly even over 6ft 6 out of bed, like 6ft 6.5

Rob I don't know if you know who he is but Ronnie the limo driver from his radio show gets a lot of stick for his height how tall do you think he is?
Editor Rob: not familiar with him.
MJKoP said on 11/Apr/17
Just for craps and giggles, I youtube'd the video Charlie was referring to. To give him credit, there was one shot where Busey and Stern looked roughly the same size...and if that was the only time he'd appeared next to anyone, yes, then the argument could be made for an under 6'5" Howard. But that one brief and rather inconclusive glimpse of the two standing in close proximity to each other is far overridden by all of the ample evidence that shows The King of All Media to be a good 5+ inches higher than six-footer Gary B.

Charlie loves to downgrade everyone, and is most likely either insecure or a troll. I've seen him downgrade celebrities 4-5 inches shorter than their real heights.
said on 1/Apr/17
LOL, Charlie is obviously trolling! I mean 5'10"-5'11" for HOWARD STERN!!??!! That man was easily over 6'5" at his peak and in fact most probably never drops under 6'5" even today after being awake and upright for 12 hours with a bad back! Ludicrousness for sure, As if Rob would be off on someone's height by OVER HALF A FOOT! 😆
Rob, how do you allow such comments to be submitted on this site?
Editor Rob: Harris, Charlie gets let out his cage once in a while to remind folk of the other end of the spectrum of height guessing!
Canson said on 1/Apr/17
Sorry Charlie. He's 6'5" but no higher today
Charlie said on 30/Mar/17
Howard Stern has to be much shorter than this. Howard Stern had Gary Busy on his show promoting Slap Shot 2. Gary Busy later in the show messes around with Howard and the saff. Gary Busy gets out of his chair and approaches Howard. Both of them are standing side by side and to be honest Gary looked taller and beefier than Howard. Anyways Gary Busy wrestles Howard to the ground while on The Howard Stern Show. To me Howard looks about 5'11. Gary Busy is around 5'11 as well.Seeing them side by side has me thinking Howard Stern is around 5'10 to 5'11.
Canson said on 25/Mar/17
To be fair I don't see why him not claiming 1/2" assuming he was 6'5.5 peak is a problem. Height varies throughout the day and many don't know that so maybe he was measured evening prime and was closer to 5 than 6 and stuck with it.
Canson said on 23/Mar/17

Stern should get both a peak and a current height listing. He is not as tall as he was back in the day.
Canson said on 9/Mar/17
@Willes: I'd say strong 6'5 peak 196-197. A full 197 at a low is weak 6'6". But who knows maybe he was and lost a full half inch or so because he is 60 now. But With his hair he'd be 6'6" tho at his lowest peak
Canson said on 9/Mar/17
@Rampage: was def at least 196-196.5 at his lowest prime. I'll say that as he looked a guy who woke up at 6'6" peak. Not so sure if I can see him as a full 197 tho at his low. He looks shorter than a Ralph Moeller would
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 9/Mar/17
197cm evening peak
Canson said on 8/Mar/17
Agree with Steve W and I think that's exactly what he is today. That's normal for a guy his size
Canson said on 8/Mar/17
@Willes: he was and still is! He's at worst a solid 6'5 at his lowest and was a guy who woke 6'6" or a hair over prime. But that shows how much times have changed. A long way back 6'5" was not a desirable height whereas today 6'3" guys claim it with ease and people believe them. I think he is one of the few legit 6'5" guys in Hollywood along with Peter Hermann

Losing 0.75" is quite normal. I'm 6'0.5"-6'0.75" in the morning and typically about 6' in the evening, but I'm 5'11.75" at my absolute low.
Animus said on 8/Mar/17
I seem to remember hearing that his dad was around 6ft2. His mother also looked fairly tall.
Willes188 said on 8/Mar/17
Howard hates his height, he probably knows that he is/was 6'5 range, but he insists on claiming 6'5. He is not a downgrader Canson, but he is rounding down 1/4-1/2 inches to keep a low profile. A classic downgrader is someone like Alan Naiper, he does it on purpose for numerous reasons, that you must agree on Canson
Steve W said on 8/Mar/17
Keep in mind the taller you are the more you stand to lose by the end of the day. No pun intended. So he could be 6'5.75 in the morning and 6'5 even by night.
said on 5/Mar/17
He has gotten height claims from actors quite a bit from what I have seen of his interrogations of actors on his shows. Rob, do you think his dad at his peak would have matched Howard at 6 ft 5 range?
Editor Rob: I really haven't looked/thought about his parents height before.
Canson said on 3/Mar/17
Well said S.J.H! You're the man and mad props! Everything s spot on too. Yes a 6'5 guy could easily drop to 6'4.75 at night too esp Howard today. That difference wouldn't even be detected especially with people focused on upgrading him to 6'5.5. I personally with Rob if I listed stern would say he's 6'5 flat at his lowest or lost him 6'5 maybe 6'5.25-.5 was his peak but doubt he was ever over maybe 6'5 3/8 lowest height
Canson said on 26/Feb/17
He was likely a bigger 6'5" prime like Peyton manning 6'6 out of bed 6'5.25 or maybe 3/8 at his lowest. Today maybe he's only 6'5 or 196
Wiles189 said on 11/Feb/17
He was very insecure about it, it wasn't easy for him as a young man
S.J.H said on 3/Feb/17
I'm daring to bet on Howard Stern is half inch taller than Peyton Manning and a peak Howard Stern is about full inch taller than Manning. Manning might just measure 6'5.5 with shoes and doesn't look taller than 194cm kobe bryant at most the same height
Giorgi said on 25/Jan/17
He has mentioned his height many times but I still don't understand whether he's satisfied with it or feels insecure.
Canson said on 24/Jan/17
Today he's still good 6'5 195-196. It's hard to tell exactly how much height he has lost
Willes189 said on 9/Jan/17
I agree with Canson on this one, give or take 5mm
But since there's no option to vote for peak & current height (He is 63yo after all) i'm going with the top one
Canson said on 28/Dec/16
Sorry that comment was intended for Tim robbins page not this one
said on 27/Dec/16
That is not 3" between stern and freeman more like 2.5-3. And rob has freeman as 6'1.75
Canson said on 23/Nov/16
Nope. He's a legit 6'5 guy 197-198 out of bed 195-196 at his lowest.
Prime was maybe 198-198.5 out of bed and 196-196.5 at his lowest
Animus said on 17/Oct/16
I once heard Stern say that it's fair to be an inch off when giving one's height. While I don't think he was 6ft6, I think ~6ft5½ is probably closer than a flat 6ft5.
shiva 181 cms said on 13/Sep/16
Howard stern's peak height was (6'53/8) at his lowest and today he may well drop to 6'5 many guess him about 6'7 but he's not
Willes189 said on 12/Sep/16
I think this page needs one LAST update, then it's top notch :)
#1 Peak And Current Height
#2 Remove "Possibly even a little bit over 6ft 5"
#3 Add Private Parts In The Description
Canson said on 8/Sep/16
@Willes189: what does 1/2" matter? I can see maybe he was 6'5.25-.5 peak but Why are you so infatuated with proving or wanting fantasizing every celeb you comment on is taller than they are? I think you are insecure with your height honestly and probably aren't as tall as you claim to be
said on 6/Sep/16
Rob, look at this, haha Stern is hilarious (1:48) Click Here
Maybe give him that for his current, and 6'5.5 at his peak? :)
said on 6/Sep/16
Look at this rare footage Click Here
Stern was 59 or 60yo at the time, towering over strong 5'11 Fallon with bad posture. I'd give Stern 6'5-6'5.25 today and 6'5.5 at peak
Willes189 said on 5/Sep/16
I don't know what's keeping Stern from getting a peak and current height? He has obviously lost some height, but still is still around 196cm
Canson said on 2/Sep/16
@Willes189: feud? The one you started because I don't agree with you and your theories about people downplaying heights? I don't upgrade celebs and claim they're downplaying heights like you do. And please stick to one name going forward Pucko/Willes189. You are the same person and it's pretty obvious. Yes let's end it
Willes189 said on 1/Sep/16
Let's stop the our feud on some of the celebritets, e.g Stern, Conan. We seem to have a verry different view on this matter
6'5.5 peak for Stern
Canson said on 28/Aug/16
@Willes189: that's a fair assessment
Willes189 said on 25/Aug/16
Howard has always been insecure about his height, so maybe that has something to with him keeping it low. Howard is a smart funny rich genius, but i think he was closer to 6'6 at peak, this has nothing to do with me being disrecpectful towards Howard
Canson said on 21/Aug/16
@Willes189: of course it's possible I suppose but going off what Bobby3342 said (he and I are both 193.7-194 lowest) he said Stern has him by roughly 1/2" on many occasions then the guy below said he looked 6'5. remember Stern is 60 some odd years old as being a flat 6'5. Maybe in his prime he was 6'5.25 at his lowest or 6'5 3/8 like you have and I can see him hitting 6'6 out of bed back then easy. But in the pic Americas got Talent I see him as 3" taller than Eric Gordon. Gordon at a 6'2 barefoot measurement would mean (depending on time of the day) that he may even see 6'1.75. I can agree with you tho that I doubt Howard drops below 6'5 flat. Maybe 6'5.75 (197.5) out of bed (today) and 6'5 flat 195.58 at low. Me being a stronger 6'4 guy I can tell you that legit 6'5s at their lowest are very very tall and often misinterpreted for being taller. Most guess them as 6'7 just because they are outliers and so far away in height. Doesn't help a lot of fake 6'5s (6'3-6'4 guys) claim it.
Hell Bobby and I are often guessed 6'6" because people claim their shoes. Truth is not many people know what a proper 6'5 looks like. Take Kobe Bryant for example. His own wife and you can look at pics with the likes of a Carmelo Anthony say he's 6'4.75. I've met Melo and he has me by 1.5-2" tops. I'd say he's def a "near" but not a full 199 guy. Bryant has even said before 6'4.5. I'd say he's between the two. But because other people claim or were measured (regardless of the time of measurement) at a height, Kobe is by deduction taller when in reality it could be timing he may have done an afternoon measurement the others around 10 or 11 or earlier. That's what is screwed up is that it's never the way it should be. If the "taller looking person" is that height it should be downgrading the others not upgrading him because he breaks the curve.
I have a 6'5 1/2 6'6 and a 6'7 friend. All three are guessed anywhere from 6'6-6'9 and when we are all together I'm lumped in there too even tho I'm not (they all wear flat shoes). A lot of athletes and common people claim 6'5 when they are measuring In shoes and also in the morning meaning they measure closer to 6'4 at night or even 6-3. Not to mention Stern has large proportions and looks the proper term for 6'5. One thing I never do and I saw you mentioned it in the general comments (I hope this is really you and not someone else like Pucko or your father), but I don't buy the comments people like that make about people downplaying height. Like Pucko for example. His comments about Skarsgard, Neeson, and Paul Walker all show he upgrades everyone to fit someone else's claim. The word downplay isn't even used properly. Downplay would mean if Howard were over 6'6 claiming 6'5. That's downplaying. Him being 6'5 1/2 even or even 6'5.6 isn't downplaying anything. He's in the 6'5 range and not 6'6 so He can claim either height truthfully. But The perception in the world is that "everyone" must "round" or "inflate" their heights because one or two people are insecure about theirs and "have to round" so everyone else has to do it not to throw everything off. This is even more impacted when someone measures an eye opener and then claims a height like 6'5 when they may be my height or 6'4.25 at night.
Willes189 said on 20/Aug/16
197-197.5cm peak (on average)
196.2-196.5cm today (on average)
196cm flat is a few mms to low for Stern today, i agree Canson, 196.2/3-196.5cm today and a little higher at peak 197.2/3/4/5/6/7cm ish
Canson said on 12/Aug/16
Out of bed 198 (prime)
Before bed 196.2 (prime)
Out of bed (today) 197.5
Before bed (today) 195.5
Canson said on 18/Jul/16
First of all Pucko I said he's 6'3. That's 191. I don't believe he is under that. And Downgrading everyone Pucko? Did I downgrade Stern? No I didn't I said he's 6'5. Conan is the only one I did At least In this conversation.i think fair to say that most ppl deserve a downgrade across this site. So many claims that people take seriously and people here exaggerate downgrading. Downgrading would be if Conan were truly 6'4 and I said he's 6'1 or 6'2. 1-2 cm doesn't constitute downgrading. And with height varying throughout the day it's possible. I think the real issue here to be honest, Pucko, is people always feel that downgrading someone is insulting and instead they inflate other people's heights to make the math work. I get sick of that crap as it happens on the street and it is frustrating and stupid And that is where I have the real problem because it is just as insulting saying someone is downplaying themselves. The other issue is when so and so claims 6'4 like Conan then when Stern claims 6'5. Why do we take Conan's word over Stern's? And yes 90% of this site does that. Ok I will give you this 6'5.25-.5 for Stern for prime yes likey but 6'4 for Conan no way. Maybe he was 192 in the AM and rounded up but far more likely that he was that in shoes. Esp when he has said he's 6'4-6'4.5 (that is Neesun's height) and Neesun is clearly taller than Conan is. That'd make Liam 6'5 at least and he wasn't.he was prob 194 prime Conan was at least 2cm maybe 3 shorter. That's common sense esp with the bee line of 6'4 guys who have edged him out on his own show and even him calling Klitschko 6'6 or 6'7. Now a legit 6'4 wouldn't call someone 196 range 6'6 or 6'7. That is the trend with him he is always an inch off. The reality Pucko is that most of the heights here are shoe heights. And then the other reality is that when someone is forced with a decision to make as far as believing Stern being 6'5 or Conan 6'4. It's easier (even when we have proof with Magic Johnson and Stern etc) to upgrade Stern to make the math work. So no I am not a hater but I honestly based on common sense believe Conan is 6'3. He has long hair and legs which make him appear taller. I mean Kobe and Barkley both have 1.5-2" on him. Both guys are 6'4 range close to 6'5. But not 6'5" and that is on record from ppl who have played with them not like Conan where we have no official height record just his claims which are diminished when someone close in size steps on stage
said on 17/Jul/16
Do you honestly belive that Conan is 190?? I'm 190cm myself and i can tell that Conan is taller, i'm not blind.. Atleast take a closer look before downgrading everyone..
How do you explain this 0:37 Click Here
Jeff Goldbum is still taller then solid 191cm Liam Hemsworth.. So why would Goldblum (192.5cm) look 2cm shorter then Conan?
Conan O'Brien's Height 6'3.75 (192.5cm)
I wouldn't go lower then that, and he was easily 1cm taller in his youth
6'6 peak for Stern is actually believable. You are very tall Canson, but you would be shocked if you saw Stern in his youth
Canson said on 16/Jul/16
The problem with Conan's height is that his proportions throw it off. Not to mention his shoe claim. I bet if Conan had claimed his true barefoot height all along nobody would question him being 6'3 and on the same token if Stern claimed 6'6 nobody would question it because the math would work with the other liars who claim their shoe heights.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Jul/16
Conan could look 193/194cm in the 90's
Canson said on 12/Jul/16
@Pucko: meant to say you seem honest my bad autocorrect struck again
Canson said on 11/Jul/16
@Pucko: I'm not undermining how tall you are. And I believe your claim. I seem honest. I'm saying You can't always look at someone in a pic and tell whether they are as tall, taller or shorter. People have diff proportions. Conan has extremely long legs. His legs may be longer than mine (I'm 36 inseam). However his torso is short so he looks disproportionately tall. But with the other 6'4" guys who have come on his show he never looked that tall in my honest opinion. And legit 6'5s edge him by a couple inches. I also see how much he has called someone a height an inch taller than they claim. You may see it differently. I can see him maybe prime waking up to 6'4 or almost but being a strong 6'3 guy then who likely got a morning measurement. He's likely only flat 6'3 these days judging from pics. Or possible he claims his shoes like many other celebs. But I will agree with you it is possible for Stern that he was maybe 6'5.25-.5 peak but doubt he was closer to 6'6 than 6'5. That would imply that he was around 3/4.
Pucko said on 11/Jul/16
Then maybe i'm 6'1 or something? Because i can't see myself being close to these guys at all, ever..
Canson said on 9/Jul/16
@Pucko: and I too am 6'4.5 (194.3 cm) and even get to 6'4 3/8. I don't see Conan being near my height. I can see Neesum in his prime but Conan looking at him looks an inch or so shorter to me. Remember, this is all subjective. And I don't know but you seem delusional and asanine. You have upgraded everyone here just as you said I've downgraded them. Look at Kobe. You say he's 6'5-6'5.25. he's 6'4.75 (out of his own mouth he's said both 6'4.5 and 6'4.75). I think I'll take his word along with Rob's over yours. And Barkley he is in the 6'4 range. I think I'll listen to the insiders and his teammates and coaches as well as other players who actually played with him. Not some schmuck who likes to upgrade people to make them "fit" his criteria. And lastly, Conan is not a legit 6'4" never has been. I've seen enough 6'4 guys on his show with him to know. That's exactly what I'm talking about. When someone else appears taller than Conan (even after they have claimed a height and I think that they would know how tall they actually are) people always want to upgrade them to make Conan or whoever else 6'4. Funny how Conan (with Neesum Mangianello Lundgren Barkley Kobe Haysbert the list goes on) always makes people an inch taller to make himself 6'4. So much for "trusting" Rob's estimates because everyone listed below (by your standards) is taller than Rob has them. Hmm! Who is delusional now
Pucko said on 8/Jul/16
You can believe whatever you want to, but i think that you'r delusional.. 190-192cm for Conan?? I'm 189-190cm myself, and i can tell you that Conan would easily have 4cm's on me. Don't downgrade legit 6'4 guys like Conan to 190cm.. And since you trust Rob's estimates why not ask him?
Canson said on 6/Jul/16
Lol So I guess first hand encounters where someone (half inch shorter average) is no good and we have to go off what someone thinks. Guess there is no point in debating then because it appears that everything on this site is about making the next person taller just because Conan (insert the name) is such and such. Oh well.
Canson said on 6/Jul/16
@Rob: I actually agree he would be 6'6 out of bed in his prime and a 6'5.25 guy at night then. But now can't see him over a flat 6'5. I think most people inflate him because of the misconception Conan is really 6'4. Conan has been edged out by every other "legit" 6'4 on his show
Canson said on 6/Jul/16
@Pucko: that's the issue Conan was never 193-194. He's a legit 6'3. If you look at him with "true" 6'4"s he never is as tall. I mean Haysbert, neesun, Mangianello who is 6'4.5, Barkley Kobe. He also asked Wlad "what are you 6'6/6'7?" A true 6'4 wouldn't see someone an inch or inch and a half taller as 2-3" taller. Peak maybe 192 and rounded. He never looked a legit 6'4". Like Rob said he may have been a "fraction" above 6'5" but that said more like a guy who measured 6'5.25 at night/ 6'6 out of bed. But now likely no more than a flat 6'5 at his lowest.
I respect Rampage's opinion but he just like everyone else isn't perfect. He's good I agree! But nobody is perfect.
charlie said on 6/Jul/16
Ok i saw the Howard Stern Show with 6 ft tall Gary Busy. At the end of the show Gary busy attacks Howard physically in which he says he was just joking. Anyways he tackles Howard and they are both on the floor and then he does the same to robin.Anyways Gary looked the same height as Howard. So i will assume Howard is 6 ft tall unless Gary Busy is lying about being 6 ft tall.
said on 6/Jul/16Click Here
Conan O'brien was around 193-194cm in 06. And Howard Stern had probably already lost 0.5-1cm of height by then..
As always (almost) Rampage known what he's talking about. About 196cm for Howard now, and around 197.5cm at his peak
said on 5/Jul/16
Stern has always claimed 6'5 yet everyone wants to make him taller lol. I don't get it.
Editor Rob: I think in Stern's case the majority have thought he looks taller than a flat 6ft 5 and he may well have measured a fraction over and just never bothered saying the fraction.
Canson said on 5/Jul/16
@Pucko: have you met him? Bobby3342 has many times and said he's 6'5. Also in the 90s was when the pics with magic were taken. Magic had a good 2" back then on him. I agree in the 90s maybe he was a strong 6'5 like 6'5.25 at his lowest (6'6 out of bed) but these days looks a plain 6'5 at most
Pucko said on 4/Jul/16
Both Tim Robbins and and Vince Vaughn would clear 197cm in the morning.. As for Stern, he would easily be closer to 6'6 then to 6'5 in his youth
Canson said on 2/Jul/16
This goes to show how tall a legit 195.5-196 really is when people guess him as 6'6-6'7 all the time. He's one of the "few" true 6'5s here like Bobby said. Not a Vince Vaughn or a Tim Robbins or a Usain Bolt. He'd even edge out the "weak azz 6'5s lol" like Jordan Kobe and Barkley
johemoth the dog said on 26/Jun/16
Think Artie is 5'9-5'9.75, cant really tell for sure, sometimes he looks taller then that, sometimes shorter. He claimed 5'10 in the weight loss challenge thing, Gary claimed 5'8 1/2 in it also, and Artie looks a bit taller then him, but not sure about 5'10, even some of the people in the studio didnt believe he was that tall, someone exclaimed their distrust of his claim, dont remember who, its on youtube though. Howard always talks about how he hates being tall, so i wouldnt be surprised if he rounds down a bit. Might of been close to 6'6 at peak. I would be surprised if he hasnt lost height by now at his age.
Canson said on 23/Jun/16
@Rampage: I can def see it. I will say I can almost see him at one point being 6'5.25 at his absolute lowest and 6'6 out of bed. And prob a solid 6'5 now at absolute worst maybe drops a hair below like 6'4 7/8 at night
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Jun/16
6ft5½ range peak and still a solid 6ft5 today.
Canson said on 21/Jun/16
@MatthewRobinson190: he's def 195-196 I agree with you. Prob still could pull off 6'5.25 two hrs out of bed or so and drop to 6'5 maybe 6'4 7/8 only due to age but I wouldn't put it past if he were a strong 6'5 in his prime like maybe never falling below that 6'5 1/4 you mentioned kinda like Klitschko. But he never saw 6'6 past maybe out of bed
Mathew Robinson (190 cm) said on 21/Jun/16
Probably closer to 6'5" than 6'6", but nothing under the full 6'5" either. 6'5.25" makes the most sense.
Canson said on 5/Jun/16
@Bobby: well said classic 6'5 like Johno said
berta said on 3/Jun/16
He is listed as my height and i must say he looks taller than me. He could be this height all thwe way upp to 198 but super skinny so i go with 196-97
