Alonzo Bodden Live from the Irvine Improv


Listen to the Adam Carolla Podcast  


Show Summary

At the top of the show, Adam talks with Alonzo Bodden about the motorcycle he rode in on, and explains that his own kids are not impressed with the sports car he’s been driving. The guys then recall their Fourth of July holidays, and some of the excitement that took place. Adam also rants about socks, takes some audience questions, and discusses his most recent Bill O’Reilly appearance.

In the news, Alison talks about a fireworks festival in San Diego that went wrong. The guys then talk about a Ben and Jerry’s flavor graveyard, and why Howie Mandell called the cops on his own party. As the show wraps up, the gang discusses the links between car color and bird shit, and Adam jokes about owning a mythical Pegasus.

    Normally I would never question Ace’s knowledge of porn, but Tracy Lord was a character played by Katharine Hepburn in the Philadelphia Story – I believe I once heard that’s how the porn actress came up with her name.

      “Tracy Lords,” and I too have heard the story about taking the name from “Jack Lords,” I think in her autobiography.

      larry is the best LMDS

    • notblastergirl

      Ff we remember in a previous podcast he explained that larry is in rehabilitation right now.
      I was also wondering where he had gone, but thankfully Larry is okay, and I’m sure as soon as he gets better he will once more join the ACE family.

    Something about thisa podcast reminds me of something I’ve been saying for years. I’m so for abortion that I believe that it should be legal to the age of 17 years old. Kids would be much better behaved if they knew that their parents could abort them at any moment. You might have to abort one of your kids just to let the other kids know that you mean it but no big deal, you can always make another kid. Gone are the threats of military school…which makes me ask…are there military schools anymore?

    Adam lets Alonzo Bodden get a word in. Good thing. The man is hilarious funny.

    Have you noticed Alonzo drops F bombs exactly where they do the most damage? Pure artistry. He F bombs something it STAYS F-bombed!

  5. stnuntrnd

    Doesn’t Adam take issue with pronouncing donkey as “dun-key”?
    A few times in last couple of weeks, he mentioned seagulls;
    why does Adam pronounce it as “si-gill” instead of “see-guhl”?

  6. Al Dorman

    Let’s hear a word about Dr. Drew’s illegal shilling for GSK. I’m extremely disappointed with him at this point. I don’t think he should be on TV as a doctor.

    • REB

      Not illegal; just a fact referenced in a lawsuit having nothing to do with Dr. Drew to show how the defendant spent its money.

    Mike’s right, you keep calling your kid a pussy and you’ll fuck him up worse than your Dad did to you. He sounds like a good kid, find another topic.

    Isn’t Dennis Miller going to be on soon?

  9. Dutchie

    I am sure hanging out on Bill “Anti-Hollywood” O’Reilly’s show will do wonders for Adam’s showbiz career. I think the slot for hack conservative “comedian” is already occupied by Dennis Miller.

  10. Wes

    Another live show picture….another picture of Allison sportin the boots. I’m starting to think she had surgically implanted.

    PLEASE explain to me why so many people hate on Carolla here on the message board but care enough to listen to the podcast and post about?

    • dog balls

      Because, people are generally more nuanced in their reasoning for liking/disliking things, and not so black and white. Some like him out right, so dislike him out right, but many others have numerous qualities they like about him, and or the show, and that they dislike as well. Because you like a show, or entertainer enough to listen to them does not preclude you from disliking various aspects as well. I believe the people who complain, or make the occasional negative comments, are fans that are expressing a few of these dislikes.

      • Rick

        I love Adam, but I’m not so fond of these live shows.
        I still listen, but it seems that he just gets drunker and drunker and starts shouting and slurring. I wonder how much spit ends up on the microphone and floor.

    • REB

      Have you ever liked something or someone but disliked a particular aspect or trait?
      Part of liking the show is talking about parts you dislike, unless you have the gift of a very uncomplex mind and can only completely like or completely “hate on” things.

  12. kirk

    what episode did Adam say he wasn’t going to have the same relationship with his kids that he had with his dad recently ?

    a word about the word “jap”: it’s common to hear japanese refer to foreigners-in-japan as “gaijin,” or “outsider.” however, it’s important to note that “gaijin,” is actually the less-than-polite version of the word “gaigokujin.” in other words, many japanese simply choose the impolite shortened version of the word for outsider. as someone who has lived in japan, i use the word “jap” from time to time, but of course understand it’s not particularly polite. but it’s not bad in the same way as “fat head,” “bucket head,” (usu reserved for koreans) or the ever popular “slant.” of course, racism isn’t considered a serious character defect in japan, either personal or institutional. i mean, 96% of landlords will just tell you straight up, “we don’t rent to your kind.” (of course the examples of things to complain about, if one is so inclined, is practically endless….)so what can they realisitically expect from the foreigners working in their country?

    Best looking Daihatsu i’ve ever seen.

      They were trying to make these shitboxes upmarket at the time. Like a compact BMW or Audi.

    Hey Ace man, I just wanted to let you know that space is 62 miles from the earths surface and it is reached just beond the Ionosphere.
    I noticed you sometimes make a reference to this on your show and tipically refer to the stratosphere. Beyond the strotosphere is the mesophere then the ionosphere then space.
    Also our military has aircraft that regularly fly at 85,000 to 95,000 feet of altitude a mile is 5,280 feet so that puts them at 18 miles above the earth surface.
    I hope this is usefull corrective information or you could just say… It’s just a wast of my time!
    By the way I have the ring tone and I love it.
    Your show is awsome and I have no problem picking up what your puttin down.
    keep up the good work.

  16. Dan

    fuck your socks.

    Combining two words to make a third made-up word just isn’t that funny. Especially when it’s done again and again.

    • Riggz

      Agreed. Alison Rosen thinks she is clever by constantly combining two words like, “this podcast is fantastic… it’s PODTASTIC”. I can only imagine how this must be a staple of her unlistenable, “Alison is your best friend” podcast. You notice when she does this, her voice gets really loud and excited sounding? You know she thinks she hit comedic gold, or “comold” as she would call it.

    How can Adam “THE Family Guy” Carolla riff without any apparent sense of irony about how old people mispronounce things and add “THE” in front of any tv show – ‘have you watched The Seinfeld?’

    or moreover, why have I never heard Bald Bryan step in to correct him on this? it’s starting to feel like some dark conspiracy is at play behind the scenes.

    • reb

      Almost better when she just says “yeah” or “yeah, I know,” obviously fulfilling some vow to respond, almost always. she seems to believe that she will disappear into obscurity without the perfunctory responses. And the “I used to pick the wrong guy. . . now i’m in a “relationship” . . . this isn’t the wrong guy” blather got old long ago.

      • Chubby knees
        Chubby knees07-10-2012

        Agreed on all points.

  20. Joker

    Volt: Very cool car. Adam’s right about the stigma of an American made electric vehicle with the Hollywood elite. But they are snubbing a far superior product (my words, not his).

  21. Andy90

    I call bullshit on calling ‘Hollywood Hipsters’ unpatriotic. Who is it that’s buying the American battery-driven cars – the Tesla and the Fisker? The only people you hear about are people like Brad Pitt or Matt Damon. Also, who is it that’s building affordable green housing in New Orleans – the same Hollywood Hipster Brad Pitt.

    I was at that show and had a photo taken with Adam afterwards. I thought it best not to shit on his point to his face, in case I got one of his fabled ‘Fuck Off’s

  22. MSG Mark

    Wow there are some folks who really hate Adam that spend a lot of time listening to him. Must be Kevin Smith plants.

  23. Dan

    I kicked a goose at the park downtown one time when it got too close to my daughter. She was 2 at the time and it was going straight for her face. Really, I didn’t kick it so much as I tossed it with my foot but it felt good watching it flail into the water. Goose are bullies around here, I hope the rest of them learned a lesson!
