Billy West


Listen to the Adam Carolla Podcast  


Show Summary

Adam opens the show talking about how he dislikes being the boss man. He rants about his maid not cleaning the right room first, and also addresses an apology from Wendy Williams for her post-show comments. Adam also gives an update on Larry Miller, and talks about his race weekend in Fontana. Dr. Spazz is also in studio, and talks about bath salts, kids swallowing magnets, and how smoking affects sperm count.

Billy West enters the studio next, and talks with Adam about being his complaining idol. The guys pitch a new reality TV contest, and complain about how there are too many kids’ shows out there. Billy also reads part of Adam’s Tijuana chapter, and the guys exchange stories about the lawlessness of Mexico and puking in icemakers.

Alison opens the news discussing the harassment of 60-year-old bus monitor Karen Kline. Adam tries to explain why young teens are such douchebags, and also comments on his own cyber bullying. Later the guys discuss the Jerry Sandusky trial and whether or not Penn State is liable for what happened. As the show wraps up, the guys chat about the daytime Emmy awards, Alex Trebek, and why being a nerd is suddenly cool.

      Isn’t a donkey show a game at kid’s parties? Like pin the tail on the donkey?
      Lemme just Google it here right quick, and…oh, dear god. Sweet mother of god, strike me blind so that I may unsee what I have just seen! The horror!

    Am I the only one thinking that the apology and the champagne from Wendy Williams could have been sent by Jimmy Kimmel?

    • Susan

      oh my god you are so right – it’s Natalie Maines all over again

    GO BRUCE GO!!!! Usually I agree with Adam 100%. Adam forgot and thats ok but “Own it Adam.” We all mess up and Adam did this time, but he did fix it with, Dr. Bruce’s help. About 17 years now (listning to Ace , Drew, Bruce and others) and I agree with the “Ace Man” almost all the time, but not here. Sorry Ace, thank and apologize to your wifey – Ace, it wasn’t her fault to get 2 kids in a car but not getting the lunches……….. both of you were busy and just forgot, eat it for dinner that night and forget it! Still love you, and Lynette- SWT, plese don’t “forget” my book plate. Good times…. all of ’em.

    PS: when my wife kicks me out, send Lynette my way……. address to follow—- 🙂

    Finally, Adam is giving the fans what we’ve truly wanted all these years.

    Skin of the Ace-Man! A 15 month calendar that’ll have you dealing with more wood than when Ace was a carpenter. There’ll be no complaints when you’re in Boner-Town, population YOU for the next 15 months! 3 buttons? 2? One-button Mexican style? No buttons?! Only those who order will know for sure! Order now!

      Sadly, very few people seem to give two shits. If it doesn’t directly affect their ability to cash their handout checks and swipe their food stamp cards…or their paycheck that hasn’t changed much in the past ten years, but is good enough to keep payin’ down the jet ski, what the shit does it matter!?

      “I got some monay – less spend it up!”

      It’s yet another *institution* that has been exposed. It doesn’t boil down to just one man. And, it’s since been exposed elsewhere (what with the scant media coverage, I can’t remember the school), which indicates a ‘tip of the iceberg’ scenario.

      C’mon, it’s not just Catholic priests. There are plenty of predators in positions of dominion over children. Unfortunately, unless it tears down religious institutions, the media won’t run with it. “Higher education” gets a pass as it does such a great job grooming more lemmings to spend a lifetime in debt to the banksters.

      Here are the current headlines on usatoday.co m (“America’s #1 Newspaper!) to give you an idea. Just look at this rubbish, all having to do with either celebs, TV (Bachelorette grabs fourth billing!?), or sensationalist crap. Notice not a WORD of the many THEATERS OF WAR we’re currently involved in, and NOT A SINGLE WORD ABOUT THAT SICK FUCK SANDUSKY.

      Both sides claim win in immigration law ruling
      FBI frees 79 teen prostitutes, nabs 104 pimps
      Tropical Storm Debby soaks Florida’s Gulf Coast
      ‘Bachelorette’ Emily picks her hometown guys
      Facebook changes affect users’ e-mail addresses

      And there you have it. Dear moderator, thank you for your time. I feel better. Hopefully this makes it.

    Adam, please know your audience. Complaining about the order in which your maid cleans your palacial mansion, really?? I literally couldn’t be less interested. I’ve been a long time listener, but no more. In my opinion, the reason why Love Line, the Man Show, and your radio program were so successful was because you had a boss! Left unfettered, you have morphed into an entitled blowhard.

    I understand that you think that studioheads and producers are unfunny hacks, but at least they challenge you to think about, and try out differnet material. Anyway, you have a brialliant comedic mind, but it getting lost in the unfettered autonomy…

    • Cody

      You missed the entire point of his complaint. He was complaining about her not cleaning a different room first even though he asked her to.

      • MC White
        MC White06-26-2012

        Uhh, I think he got the point, or were you being sarcastic?

    • cap'n asshat
      cap'n asshat06-27-2012

      Oh I see – you’re mad because he’s wealthy now.
      His only point was ‘as soon as I ask someone to do something, they will do the opposite every time’ as in his maid and her troll friend making noise in his kitchen in the morning/talking about a leaky boobjob.

      Adam’s been a broke motherfucker…you’ve heard the stories. I’m happy that he’s able to do his own thing successfully.
      He probably just needs some more creativity to continually bring entertainment in his *FREE* daily podcast.

  28. Alex

    Hmm I guess I like the comedic episodes more than the issue based one, not that this was one necessarily. I love Adam’s quick remarks and insults and all that but for whatever reason, when it comes to issues I can’t stand to listen.

    I understand that its a free podcast, this is just my opinion. It honestly seems like the only person that Adam will listen to is Dr. Drew and Dennis Prager. When he debates with anyone, Adam seems to lack and concrete evidence to support his arguments. It’s always something along the lines of “I know it is, mother nature didn’t bla bla bla,” “you must be insane to believe that” “thats just the way it is”, especially on topics such as child raising, bathing, death penalty, immigration, or anything by Dr. Spaz.

    I love the show, I just don’t think saying “i know it is” can justify half of Adam’s arguments. Also, I get that he has experience from his years on LoveLine but it has to be a balance of both fact and experience. You can’t say something and argue it to be fact without evidence. Just saying.

    Don’t say I don’t support the show. Been listening to the Aceman for several years and have bought hundreds of dollars worth of things through Amazon.

    Go Aceman, Alison, and Bald Bryan! Also, more Chris Maxi-Padda. LOL

    So Adam doesn’t like strangers in his house? How about he NOT hire a nanny, maid, and pool boy? It’s not like his wife has a job. Welcome to the real world, Lynette. Start taking care of your own children, keeping the house clean, and cooking some meals.

  35. Ras

    Luis – the punk ass that videoed the incident is the douchiest ass – he fuckin participates in the bullying and then he sells out his douchebag friends. What is worst is the mom is fuckin clueless and doesn’t make his son take responsibility and says her son was just following his buddies lead. If his buddies said to suck their balls would Luis be compelled to do so? Fuck this kid Luis and fuck his douchebag friends. Kid today are becoming more and more monster douchebage, self entitled fuckups.

    Adam’s unvarnished view of the world is priceless. Please don’t give into the PC losers.

    Hey Bald Bryan… The next time Billy West is in studio… Do us all a favor… can you put the drop “Why don’t you leave the joking to Adam” on a loop, and play it in his headphones as long as he is in studio???

    Hey, does anyone know the song BB put on in the background when Adam was talking about Tijuana strip clubs, about 1:06:30 in? I’ve been trying to find out and it’s driving me insane

    • Piss

      John – The song is called “Comanche”, by The Revels. The song can be found on the Pulp Fiction soundtrack. Cheers.

    • DonnySac

      Comanche by the Revels

      Check the “Pulp Fiction” soundtrack. I don’t recall the title, but it’s on there (with the “bring out the gimp” line).

      “Comanche” by The Revels. I recognized it from Pulp Fiction like most people prob did.

    • MC White
      MC White06-26-2012

      I’m pretty sure that was from the soundtrack for Pulp Fiction, if I can remember. Even if it’s not on the Pulp Fiction soundtrack, it’s a song they played during the movie (I’m pretty sure.). I’m not 100%, since I’m not listening right now, but I always pay attention to the music they play, and I think I remember that song. I’ll post a bit later, if I can recall the song, but I think it was that creepy song they played around the time of the “White Trash” beat down, in the shop that Bruce and Vincent (the black thug guy) wander into, right after the car crash. Am I crazy? I’m gong by memory right now.

    I want to find those kids on the bus, find there parents and beat them to within an inch of there life. I think the kids first then the parents, let the parents watch first. Just a lack of respect for other people. Little Punks. Kind of like how people complain about Adam and his guests on this blog. Its on the internet and you can be as daring and mean and tough as you want. Your all a bunch of pussies, If you dont like it, dont listen. You all and those kids need a little one on one time with Jerry Sanduski.

    I feel bad for Bruce. Adam needs to stop inviting him if he isn’t going to pay attention to him.

  57. Sig

    I must say, Ace laid down some really important shit about people, time on their hands, looking in the mirror, having too many thoughts about complete bullshit, etc.

  60. MC White
    MC White06-26-2012

    I love how Adam accepts Wendy’s apology. First of all, that’s 100X better than other accept an apology. 2nd: yeah, sure, he accepts her apology, and takes it like: I was completely right and she was wrong, so she should be the one to apologize (even though he didn’t specifically say that), How do I know: he immediately uses the Kevin Smith example: “if he would have just apologized, instead of rationalizing his response, I would have moved on.” As if, Adam didn’t contribute to the disagreement, AT ALL.

    I was not there, at the Wendy Williams show, but something tells me, he played, ever a role, even if small, or perhaps large, in the audience disagreement. Not to mention, I’m still not convinced, it’s not Jimmy, playing a stunt practical joke.

    My $.02.

  61. MC White
    MC White06-26-2012

    I actually thought Billy West was funny. I’m studying Voice Over now, and I’m always interested to hear someone ply his trade (yes, I’m not being sarcastic right now.) I thought his V/O responses were hilarious, and I enjoyed him reading Adam’s book.

    Thanks for having a podcast, where you didn’t mention $.19 cent Taco Bell tacos.

  62. G-man

    I agree with Dr. Bruce about the “he’ll put a finger up your ass” part of his theme song. Instead of finger, get the guy who changed “oh Mandy” to “oh Manny” to change it to dinger. So it will be “he’ll put a dinger up your ass” and still but funny but Bruce won’t get a bad case emotional stink-finger. It’s a win-win.

  63. fefe

    Adam I like your show but you have become a colossal asshole. You fire someone because wore perfume. Whao I know is your house your rules. I’m sorry but that is such a asshole move. I’m really going to stop listening…

    Someone nailed it on the head; The only person less funny than Billy West is the fake conservative Richard Martin. They’re both painful to listen to.
    FYI: Billy the world was so outraged about the bus teacher they gave her $600,000, did you really thinking making fun of her in a kids voice would be hilarious? Alison, feel free to call these people out. It’s got to be uncomfortable sitting there.

    i think it’s a safe bet the vast majority of listeners found billy west really annoying. when he was on howard stern in the mid 90’s, he had a very specific role and that was to read the lines written for him. most of the time he went off script or started riffing on his own they’d make fun of him for being painfully unfunny. he’s talent is just doing voices and not telling jokes or funny stories. why adam thinks he’s a good guest is beyond me? adam talks and this douche does random voices at the same time in the background at the same vloume as Adam. isn’t that one of the basic rules of any kind of broadcasting to have only one person speak at a time? billy doesn’t know this or is he that full of himself? he sux and please don’t have him on ever again. i lasted 15 minutes once he came in the studio and i bailed. it was torture to listen too.

    Why does Dr. Bruce look like a hostage holding up a newspaper as proof of life?

    Had to turn off the podcast after only a few minutes. What a douche Billy West is…but how could Carolla recognize it…He still hasn’t figured out that Larry Miller is the most annoying man alive.

    These message boards have a surprising number of dudes talking about another dude’s shirts. It seems Ace’s demographic is not quite what I would have assumed it to be.
