Adam is trying to plug an upcoming live show, he’s saying why not take the fuck ups into the New Year and beyond, Gary is on mic clearing things up.
Adam is now citing the drive to San Diego with Alison and Mike August, Adam and August were having a disagreement, this was either right before or right after my phoner with Adam for my own podcast.
Alison is sharing her “my god maybe Adam is right all the time” mantra haunting her after the argument, Adam is citing the multiple spats they had extending into the green room at the comedy club.
Adam and BB are doing a reenactment, BB is playing August and Adam is breaking down how these conversations go, Adam says his problem in life is respecting other individuals and citing August’s multiple degrees as why he doesn’t doubt him.
Alison and Adam are bringing up his imperial certainty and jokes about getting him to go after other things that don’t exist like mythical cryptozoic beasts.

Adam is commenting on Jimmy Kimmel and the way people can’t perceive of talent because of bad taste, he’s citing the 1997 lunches with Kimmel and Carson Daly.
Adam says that you don’t feel the “someday, something is going to happen” when living life, much like Kevin Costner’s “rearview mirror of life” idea from a few episodes ago.

They’re announcing the winner and wrapping up what might be the best Ace Awards yet.
Adam is giving out thanks once again.
Adam is thanking Stone Brewery and Saint Archer for their IPA’s provided to the holiday party, sound like fun!
Adam is thanking the fans and every one of us who keeps the show running, BB and Alison are offering up their takes on meeting the fans and their friends and families they’ve hooked on the show.
Adam is thanking Dawson, Gary and Lynch, BB just tossed my name out to thank me, how odd, thanks BB!
For the record I didn’t help with any clips or production for this or any Ace Awards but at least we now have an early contender for “Most Uncomfortable Moment” for the 2014 Ace Awards.
Adam’s got a nice save and they’re wrapping perhaps the best Ace Awards ever done, it’s hard to top 2012 but this is at least equal if not even better.
Superfan Giovanni saying mahalo till next year, be safe and have some happy holidays and a Merry Christmas Everybody!
