David Alan Grier


Listen to the Adam Carolla Podcast


Show Summary

Adam opens the show talking about August’s wedding this weekend. He also talks about his red eye flight back from New York, and the craziness of being awake for 24 hours.

Alison then starts the news discussing the celebration in Libya after Gaddafi’s death. Adam comments on the 50 animals killed in Ohio, and hears about another scolding of Lindsay Lohan for violating her probation. Later, Bald Bryan recognizes himself in one of our sponsors.

David Alan Grier arrives in studio and Adam recalls the times when DAG would fall asleep during Teresa’s news. DAG and Adam also exchange stories of drunk girls interrupting their acts, and discuss how to figure out what type of drunk person you are. Alison then brings up the recent video of Shia LaBeouf’s bar fight, and as she wraps up the news, the guys discuss DAG’s dating life.

    What is DAG going to say about Alison’s peculiar odor?

  3. yeah

    Has popular demand ever dictated guest bookings on this show?

      Popularity is what popularity does.

    The moustache is weird, with the gap, but then I thought about it. What else has that much symmetry?

    It makes DAG look like a tiger, a proud African tiger. (Hunting Emus and Buffalo.)

    • r

      For the love of Christ please study some fucking grammar. You couldn’t have fucked up you’re structure any more!

      • r

        And it looks like I fucked up “you’re”.

  5. drewbert

    it was cool to hear that little snafu at the beginning
    DAG was great as usual.

  6. Adam

    DAG again. another episode to skip.

  9. Minnesota Jim
    Minnesota Jim10-23-2011

    More DAG, all the time!!!

  10. Juicemachine

    I might suspect Adam gets fired quickly after aggravating the living hell out of of the american idol gay kid?

    Actually I don’t think it takes that long (in real time) to shoot the apprentice? Maybe 1 or 2 weeks?

    Anyways, DAG rulez but could BB please stop dropping quotes during DAG interviews (especially) because sometimes between him doing actual character voices and BB dropping them from previous shows.. wtf is .. who is saying what live .. was that drop or DAG saying it now..

    I like to write on message boards yayyyyy

  11. robx46

    Sunday episode? WTF?
    I’m confused. I don’t want to listen to this tonight & not have a podcast to hear tomorrow!
    Or is this a BONER episode?

    • Juicemachine

      “Or is this a BONER episode?”

      Every episode with Alison is a BONER episode

      • Poochie's Uncle

  13. Siv

    DAG us awesome! Also love Alison and BB…

  14. Dario

    Hmm, why couldn’t they edit out that mistake at the beginning?

    (Wondering whether DAG will mention Simoncelli)

    • Rt

      Hmm, because it’s fun to hear mistakes. Hmm, it brings us behind the scenes a little. Hmm, do you actually have a problem with it?

  15. Dutch

    I wish DAG was on the show like once a week. He is easily top 5 among guests, perhaps the best guest period.

  16. Jack

    Bald Brian is painfully unfunny.

  17. jon dunn
    jon dunn10-23-2011

    ynette tweeted today that adam is going back to NYC – I think they take little breaks in the middle of it.

    Adam is going to get eaten alive on this show. he has no idea how to kiss butt

    • Big T
      Big T10-24-2011

      Usually not the ones “kissing butt” that do well on the show.

  18. flyfishinjam

    I’d skip this one after hearing the last one.

  19. george

    adam- you’re fired

  20. Deborah Fields
    Deborah Fields10-24-2011

    There is nothing in the World that I enjoy more than a healthy serving of some DAG. My favorite guest of yours by far. ALWAYS. He should be a regular like my other fave Larry.

  21. Josh

    lol paying for a ticket would give you better service. Gotta keep those corporate salaries high.

    it was funny how mad that n*i*g*g*e*r dag got when the caller “axed” how his movie career is.

    • Jr College All Star
      Jr College All Star10-24-2011

      dude, why drop an n bomb

    • Brent

      I’m the caller that said that about his film career, and your racism and ignorance is appalling. Get a grip man. You’ve lost the plot.

  25. Raymond

    Thanks for getting DAG back on so soon! His last episode was the very best ACP in my opinion. Hilarious with Dr. Bruce and Ace.

  26. Sam

    dag fag again, he better do his n i g g e r voices

  27. Jim

    ya dance monkey, better get to entertaining these white folks

  28. Frank

    DAG seems like a really GAY man

  29. crowTrobot

    Yay! The entire gang + DAG.

  31. ted

    do you have the girl’s number

  32. Dustin

    wow..this message board got very ku klux klannish.. very quickly.

  33. Yep

    Attell, Judge, and DAG. The show is on a roll. Must be trying to make up for that Bai Ling and Ferrigno crap.

    Never knew there were so many DAG-haters until seeing these comments.

  34. MC White
    MC White10-24-2011

    DAG is the man, yes there are plenty of white folks who enjoy his humor, please cut out the racist comments, because you are anonymous and peons, nobody thinks you’re tough.

  35. Brad

    Really, Why such hate and ingnorance? DAG is cool.

  36. Dario

    Ferrigno crap? What could you find wrong with that podcast?

    • Jo Ke
      Jo Ke10-24-2011

      i agree i liked that one

    • Yep

      I didn’t find Ferrigno to be either entertaining or interesting. A good guest needs to be at least one of those two things.

  37. Tyler

    You morons should be shot for dropping N bombs. Only Louis CK can do that. Bring DAG on always and often!

    • Tanner

      Louis CK also chastised people who say “N-word” or “N-bomb” for being too pussy to say the word themselves… if you’re going to drop down to your knees for the man, at least know his material.

  38. Midwest

    Love me some DAG, BB, LM, AR and of course ACE!

  39. mike

    What with the hilarious “nig” stuff? You’ve gotta be the funniest guys in your GED program. Assholes. Dag!!!

  40. danielnyc

    dude, not cool with the n bombs. dag is the best guest ever. shouldn’t you be f’ing your sister anyway, you inbred hick.

  59. Alex

    DAG is the best guest on the show – i always listen when i know he’s going to be on!!!! he needs to be on more just like Larry Miller

  60. wade

    • Adam Car Hola!
      Adam Car Hola!10-24-2011

      If DAG is the funniest person alive, I suggest you get out more, and maybe finish your education. Don’t worry though, I’m sure another hilarious Adam Sandler movie is coming out any day, just for you.

    ohhh fuck off Adam Carola. you know damn well you would have loved it if we draged Osama bin la din down the street of New york. there country was doing just fine till every one of these supper powers pitched in to take down this country and still manage to keep there hands clean. now thanks to outside interfernce that country will be in a state of Chos and even further away from having a space program. Gadafi was working on a space program but the other countrys didn’t let him build it.

    • Connard

    Can we maybe stop droning on about caged exotic pets and get on to David Alan Grier?

  69. Jon

    DAG is no different than my 2 year old when they act up for attention. Just tune em out and don’t reward their attempts at pulling ALL the attention in the room (or world) toward them.
    not funny, NOT entertaing, listening to Jon and Ken podcast next time DAG is on ACE.

  70. Logan

    What a way to start the week. DAG, Aceman and the gang. You guys rock!

  71. Butthead

    Woa, DAG is cool. Beavis, why don’t you make yourself useful and get him on our show.

      Eh, heh, heh. That would be cool.

    Aceman and DAG sounds like they’re brothers. LOL

    • Ledgewood

      No, just DAG is.

  74. Madeline

    What gives? How come my comment didn’t get posted?

  75. Pike

    DAG is wild. Some people can’t stand him but I think he’s hilarious. I love that black cracker.

    You can totally see that chicks nipples.

  97. Jay

    Why doesn’t Adam pimp his new show? I’ve listened from day one, when he took over Farman’s radio slot. I don’t recall him talking about the project at all in recent days and just happened upon it while looking for something to watch. I was crying, it was so funny. The good news is that I can peruse 2 episodes!

    I graduated HS in 2005 and they made a kid run around the field chanting, “my helmet is not a chair” for sitting on his helmet during practice. So they are still doing that stuff.

    Christmas came early!!!

  103. Jay

    Thanks Harry L. I never knew it existed. I look forward to watching the rest.

    Man, a little DAG goes a long way. I don’t see the fascination with the guy. He’s kind of a douche. Maybe I’m missin somethin. Dude was great on ILC but not so funny off the cuff.

  107. jw

    This was one of the very best episodes–Adam and DAG were hitting it out of the park. Alison & BB were witty and charming. Thanks for making this available for free.(if there was a bookmarklet that would let me shop Amazon and give the show credit, I’d use it all the time.)

  108. Shew

    More DAG, Less Sound drops!!!!!

  109. Luey

    DAG, Since we all know you’re in here writing all this positive crap about yourself…I figured I’d speak for everyone and say keep your Sharea jokes to yourself…quit screaming for attention…and while you’re at it go F#*k yourself.

  110. ToneLoc

    This was one of the best shows. I laughed so hard. Damn, DAG is good.

  111. cow12

    As always DAG is a treat. Best guest.

  112. Seattle Fan
    Seattle Fan10-25-2011

    So damn funny…that bit with the homo erotic fighting…hillarious!

  113. MarkVW


    DAG is the shit

  114. Patrick

    Holy shit!!! The homoerotic drunk fight talk was so funny, I’ve been listening for years and Adam has never made me laugh and cry so hard.

  115. Andrew

    DAG is horrible. He just screams the whole time. The sound engineers should normalize out his annoying bleating.

  116. volkan

    DAG you screaming for attention son of a bitch.. quiet the fuck down for once, stop screaming stupid shit and talk and make a good joke for once… you are annoying as shit… just talk like a normal person and make few cracks here and there mother fucker

  117. Adam

    Great to get Alison and BB in the studio with DAG (they were both missed during his last appearance). I guess, from reading some of the comments here, that DAG is a more controversial figure than I realized. Neverthless, I say MORE DAG!

  118. Blake

    DAG is awesome!!!!!

  119. Fred

    I dont think DAG is funny, i think hes very annoying and i dont know who adam is talking about when he says everyone loves him. The screaming, the weird accents he does arent funny, the whole chera bit was very drawn out and made me cringe in the car when i was listening to it because it was just annoying, i can understand the whole being sarcastically annoying thing but he steps over everyone else and is very annoying when you’re actually trying to hear what alison is trying to say about the story. Its a shame that the whole homo erotic segment couldnt be done with an actual good comedian, like patton oswalt or Chris titus.

  120. dan

    What in the heck do people like about DAG? Jeez, he is annoying as hell! What a douche bag

  123. Mike

    The drunk talk bit was piss-your-pants funny. He should add that to the stand up rotine.

  124. 4d01f0

    DAG and ACE, they should have a Loveline-talk show type of show together. DAG is the best guest ever, he was even great in the “For crying out loud” podcast!

  125. Susie

    Best guest ever!

  126. Ryan

    I love DAG’s “white guy” voice! hilarious

  127. marty

    I like just calm funny people and if Dag is your cup of tea great.

  128. Loren

    Love me some David Alan Grier. Any time. Any place.

  129. Aron

    DAG the only guest Adam has that I will not download. Just because he’s fucking crazy doesn’t make him funny. I’m surprised Adam likes him so much. To be funny, or his version of it, David has to be loud, obnoxious, and bounce off the walls. Adam typically mocks the comedians who rely on those bits to be funny. When he used to be on with Teressa and would interrupt and snore while she talked, I wanted her to kick him in the sack. If you need black guests Adam, go with Alonzo Bodden or Aeisha Tyler.

  130. Willem

    During the 1:09:00 – 1:11:00 interval, I counted at least 58 f-bombs from Ace. Excellent.
