Adam, Alison, and Bald Bryan, Live from the Jon Lovitz Comedy Club


Listen to the Adam Carolla Podcast


Show Summary

Adam opens the show talking about how his dog hates the water. He also mentions a supposedly inspirational story about a sprinter who was shot outside of USC, and rants about Katy Perry songs being played during the Olympics. Adam then rants about spiders and talks to an audience member about getting over a breakup with a police officer. Later, he complains about too many events at his kids’ school.

Alison begins the news with a story about Tommy Lee writing a letter to the president of Sea World to stop playing Motley Crue music during their Shamu shows. She also talks about a dog saving her pups in Chile, and Adam talks about his housekeepers always starting in the kitchen despite his efforts to get them to start in another room. Other news stories include trying to save an 80-year-old lobster, Venice Beach possibly getting a zipline, and ending the war on pubic hair. As the show wraps up, Adam talks about getting busted for what’s recorded on your DVR.

    • Permanent

      Only one of the people talking belongs on a stage.

  2. STeven

    Alison is always wearing the same stuff

    Alison: lose the boots please

    • a2mfk

      To each his own. I think skirts and boots is one of the sexiest outfits a woman can sport. And Allison is doing that look justice. Smart, quick witted, clever and sexy- perfect package!

    Ace, the Heatseekers chart is for new or developing artists (who haven’t appeared on the Top 100 of the Billboard 200).

    WRONG – don’t tell woman to look more like Angelina Jolie……. she’s gross. How about we strive for higher.

    Kate Beckinsale – now were are talking!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Matt

      Amen my friend, Kate Beckinsale a goddess unmatched

  15. jj

    The rants about the family problems are really boring. The quality of this show is going down.

  16. Elle

    Adam needs to use the ‘unibrow’ for his autograph!

      KatieDoodle, here’s some inspiration for you.

  17. Nick

    It’s called a house centipede, Ace man. One of these freaked the crap outta me when I was in Brooklyn. Huge fan (of you, not house centipedes)!


  18. Shawn

    Hey Adam, careful with the internet ‘species’ porn. It’s as easy as script injection for you to get caught with your pants down… And I think I speak for many when I say I don’t want to see that on a google image search. How to protect yourself: bit.ly/Hz20W9

  20. Rufus

    Aceman, get yourself a $30 Dust Buster for the spiders.

  21. Kirston

    Maybe there was only one spider! So funny! Go Alison!

  22. Permanent

    Back to horrible reality. Even though they were from the archive, last week’s shows were so great with just Adam and guests.

  23. covenantal

    Allison is hot as fuck

  24. Matt

    I love ppl that are so dissatisfied with the time they spent listening to the pod that they want to take more time to look up the shows website and complain,,,time to get a job? Or better yet a life? Trolling is not a lifestyle you pathetic complainers. Find a better way to spend the time it took to bitch and moan about a show u listen to! Yes I took extra time just as they do to cry, but I’m defending a show I love and defending the almost lost idea of common sense, and o my…decency?

      The Porcelain Punisher, is that you?

      It’s only because this podcast used to be very innovative/entertaining and we miss it. Hopefully the slide to self-absorbed narcism can be reversed.

    • squidick

      But Matt, didn’t you get the memo? 99% of the people on this planet are about as bright as halibut.

      i don’t know if you’ve noticed this, but a lot of the people complaining are big fans of adam’s work. i’m a huge fan and have been for 15 years, but i do feel like the show is going downhill. no matter how funny a story is, you can’t retell it 50 times. most of us listen every day, which means we’ve heard the same complaints about taxes, airlines, and passion fruit iced tea literally dozens of times.
      we’re fans who are voicing our displeasure. i think that’s valuable input, the kind of stuff they might want to pay attention to.
      “trolling” would be if someone didn’t like the show to begin with and just showed up to talk shit. i don’t think that’s what is happening here lately.

      • Insan

        Agreed. Though it’s hard to come up with fresh ideas when you have a daily comedy show. I think the secret to success is having more callers. The Q+Ace, Who the F sells this S, and What Can’t Adam Complain about segments are still great. The general complaints I just yawn through these days.

    To hear Alison say she is or was “retro” downstairs, I just about drove off the freeway. Alison, you are so beautiful, so smokin’ hot and to visualize you naked w/ a full bush, oh my god! Your boyfriend is a lucky man! Women PLEASE let your garden grow! It’s natural! That shaved shit is too pre-pubecent looking and too weird – and you guys who like it fully shaved, I don’t trust you one goddamn bit…… my opinion.

    • Caliber Winfield
      Caliber Winfield08-21-2012

      And I don’t trust a guy in leisure suit who’s all creepy about being “natural”. Retro is gnarly. All the way, not great either. Inbetween? [no pun intended] then rock on.

  26. McLovin

    Say it, Matt!

    And I second the notion that Allison is hot as fuck.

  27. Bondosan

    At least Alyson dresses up for the public. Cargo shorts Bryan??

  28. Nord2x

    Dig the boots Allison! Love the show Ace Man!

  29. malcom

    Alison was on fire. Quick on the draw and right on target. Awesome.

    Something that made me crazy as a gymnast- Adam complaining about crappy music being pumped in at all times? FYI- that was music for another gymnast’s floor routine. You see, the way gymanstics works, all 4 appartus have a team on them at the same time. So you can be in the middle of your balance beam routine when Katie Perry starts to blast for another gymnast’s floor routine, or the crowd erupts in applause for another gymnast’s bar routine or vault. Gymnasts learn pretty young how to tune all that noise out & not react. It’s not something that I would expect an adult male to even have an inkling about, but I just was pulling my hair out in frustration. Besides, it went on WAY too long. Still, I totally love you Adam Carolla Show!

    • Robin

      Boy, that’s a good point. Don’t see too many of those on here.
