Adam is opening the show with Jo Koy in studio, making his 6th appearance and they’re bonding over both experiencing a security breach at “Cobbs” comedy club, Alison is out for the day and there is no fill in news gal.
Adam is bringing some analogous situations to shine a light on the absence of security or rule enforcement at many comedy clubs.
Adam is explaining how people will tag along and try to pretend like they belong in comedy club green rooms despite not knowing anyone involved in the show.
Adam is sharing a specific anecdote and Jo is wishing he could embrace Adam’s method of handling these encounters, Adam is telling Jo that regardless the person in question will consider you an asshole.
Adam has a “if it doesn’t make you happy, if it doesn’t make you money” analogy for people hanging around an “If it doesn’t give you pussy and it doesn’t pay you” variant.
Adam is now joking about hiring an “Ax Man” and Jo is riffing in a black guy voice as Adam’s new “Ax Man” and Adam’s got a hilarious response to his liberal use of motherfucker.
They’re still riffing, now about Adam’s Rider on the road and Jo is on a tangent about “Flo-Rida” the hip hop artist.
Jo is now “ax’ing” Adam a few questions, this is Dag level stuff and needs to be considered for Ace Awards 2013, Jo’s “Big E” character is funnier than all of his other characters and Big Momma even, this is gold!
Adam is now bringing up week #2 of the NFL and another game with a kick that you can’t call due to the uprights being deficient.
Jo’s telling Adam his idea still stands, a crow’s nest atop of the field goal post, great voice work form Joe!

BB is breaking down Adam’s picks, the 37/0 game with Eli Manning and the Giants putting up a goose egg.
Jo is asking Adam and BB about sports prognosticators that charge premium subscriptions to their weekly picks, Jo’s description of Adam’s lack of gambling prowess is comedy gold!

Adam is now listing off various initiatives and campaigns, he’s making a point about mental illness not really being covered.
Adam is ranting about the boating related PSA’s he hears while trapped on the 405 and Jo is now busting out his “Cyndi Lauper” in response to Adam’s riffing up a PSA on the spot.
Adam is now telling the gang about a PSA that was sent to him the other day and how they always feature a multinational gang of friends, Jo agrees and has a another point about the Asian actor never being the driver.

They’re now playing the railroad track safety PSA and BB’s reactions are priceless, this is great!
Jo is adding new dialogue to the PSA and Adam is joining him, this is great “It’s Na’Dinatasha, I’m from France” – Jo as his black character from the PSA.
Adam is breaking down the timeline of the PSA as they watch it again, this is comedy gold and also needs to be up for Ace Awards 2013, the “Track Smart” PSA riff and Rant, Adam’s “I DON’T KNOW!” will certainly be heard again, it’s Joel McHale’s pool 2008 level intense.
They’re now having a serious discussion about the PSA and the misuse and appropriate of fund for these PSA’s in the face of actual dangers and Adam is even referencing his “proper tire inflation” PSA idea.

Now the PF Changs waiter is the officer pulling over Adam in the PSA, this is comedy gold!
This riff is insane, another Ace Awards 2013 episode, shit just give all the awards to this one, wow!
Jo Koy is a huge comedy addition to the ACS and I can’t believe how much he’s been missed, 2013 has been great for the show!
Jo is now telling a personal story involving anal beads in response to Adam’s comments after they wrap up the riff with an inquisitive BB.
Jo rejects anal beads and Adam would consider used beads if Adam Levine or the Dyson Vacuum inventor was the previous home to the butt beads.
Adam is now using steak and omelets to make a great analogy about not needing extra accoutrements in the bedroom
Adam is giving some plugs for Jo and wrapping the segment, Perfect!
Mark Steines from the Hallmark “Home and Family show” which actually employs Classic Loveline engineer Mike, the man who invented the drop work that BB does today, that Anderson perfected.

Mark just revealed his dad passed at 83 just a few weeks back, he was an avid chewer and smoker, never spitting out his chew and loved cutting grass according to Mark.
He taught the kids to cut that same grass after his dad died as an almost spiritual and healing/growing moment between generations.
Adam is bringing up his crew of guys who find reward working on his construction jobs, he’s trying to bring up their level of satisfaction and Mark is agreement bringing up his own experiences living like that.
