Show Page

Adam is opening the show with Rich Eisen making his 7th appearance on the ACS, his first live show with the gang.

Adam is plugging Rich Eisen’s podcast that he’s guested on, Adam loves doing the TV show with Rich and for those that don’t know he’s actually a classic Loveline guest from 2004.

Adam is now bringing up a recent fight and what he suggested, the NFL replay gimp, Rich has an immediate hilarious reaction to this idea, and Adam is giving the super abbreviated version, not focusing on the funniest elements from past variants of this story.


Rich is now waxing poetic on Adam’s NFL replay gimp idea, I think he’s heard this the last time he visited, possibly on his own show too if memory serves.

Alison is now asking for the job and Adam is trying to figure out how to properly hunch her back.

Adam is now bringing up the sunlight and how it blinds the gimp, BB is now asking if this a kidnapped feral child and Adam is rolling with it, Rich just jumped in and changed the topic back to what they were discussing.


Alison’s reactions are priceless, great laugh just now!

Adam is now bringing up the flogging element of the display and a new twist involving cheerleaders.

Rich is confirming he will indeed send this idea up the ladder, but now Adam is reacting to something be knocked over as he sat down.


Adam’s on a killer riff about the noise as he sat “Don’t time your knocking things over with my ass hitting a stool… if I’m staring at an airplane and I sneeze and it starts spiraling to the ground, I’ll start running”.

Adam is now going off on the large production for his new show, asking how many vegetarians worked on the set and would be fucking up his lunches, Adam is now polling the audience after one volunteers the info.

Adam is now back to the days filming, he happened upon what appeared to be chili, Adam loves chili and doesn’t eat enough of it, averaging about a teaspoon per year, could do a bucket per year.


Adam is really going off on the vegetarian chili and the move he’ll be pulling for season 2, hilarious.

Adam is back to the on-set poll, he was betrayed by a carpenter/vegetarian who boldly ratted out the one other vegetarian guy who wasn’t there at the time.

30+ crew, 1 vegetarian and Alison is now asking Adam if he really forced someone else to tally all the workers. Adam was insulted along with his soy injury after finding goat cheese in the salad.


Rich and Alison have some nice comments and Adam is now sharing about the plate of rice Krispy treats he went sick on upon arriving home.

Adam is now asking if there is any better combination of ingredients that aren’t so great solo, rice krispies, butter and marshmallows.

Adam is offering to blow the man who invented the recipe in response to Alison’s’ question, nice work A- Rose, what a setup!


BB is now weirdly trying to get Adam to blow him, funny then gross.

Rich is still killing it with the dry one liners and Alison is helping Adam riff on a better level, this is alchemy!

Adam and Riff are riffing about Jewish guys in the rodeo, Rich is bringing Adam on to the idea that “you know you’ve arrived as a country, when you’re doing shit that other countries dread, for pleasure…”


Adam’s on a killer one time only riff, so many great quotes and he’s now laying into guys wearing down vets, dolphin shorts and cannot commit to a full ensemble.

Adam is now saying the balls on top of snow hats are just one extra thing to catch on fire, he’s now going off on tassels in general, hilarious loafer comedy and Alison’s laugh is great.

Adam has a nice Sugar ray Leonard and Mike Tyson reference, he’s now busting Rich’s balls in response to him trying to setup a Mike Tyson story.


I wish he would tell the Mitch Blood Green ones from Classic Loveline in 2004, Adam is now quoting the other famous Mike Tyson press conference quotes.

“Equilibrium” and “Boliviem”.

Adam is now riffing on the idea of asking a fighter “are you thinking about retiring” post ass kicking and what a dumb idea that is, Adam has some hilarious examples of a nail salon and Nabisco employee’s reactions to the same thing happening in their workplace.


Adam has a killer Dick Cavett reference along with some snow shovel comedy.


Q And Ace

BB has a nice Mangria plug, good job.


1st Question from Stephanie, she wants to know what Adam thinks the appropriate cost of an engagement ring should be.

Adam is asking Alison about the rule, whether it’s 2-3 months’ salary.

Adam is now giving his take on engagement rings, his theory on the misery index, how much does it hurt the guy?


Adam’s got a great floral shop/funeral home analogy that makes perfect sense and is hilarious.

Adam says he loves cordless drills and if his wife worked at “Makita” his favorite tool company, he wouldn’t factor in that she works there and gets a discount and freebies and think less of the gifts, he would be thrilled.

Adam says women would not be as into flowers if they dated a florist or funeral worker.

This is comedy gold!
