Jeff Ross and Tom Rhodes
Adam opens the show discussing the extremely hot valley weather, and how ridiculous it is that luxury cars don’t have a way to cool themselves off in the parking lot. Adam then takes a call from Jeff Ross, and the guys talk about the controversy surrounding his comments during the upcoming Roseanne Barr Roast. Adam also talks with his assistant about his ex-girlfriend, and how the Carolla name can get you out of traffic tickets.
Comedian Tom Rhodes enters the studio next, and talks with Adam about touring in Australia. Tom also talks about visiting the graves of people he admires, and Alison explains that graveyards creep her out. Later Tom discusses touring the world with his photographer wife, and the guys talk about a little known Disneyland secret.
Today’s news begins with an update on the Wisconsin shooting. The gang also discusses the first color photo released from the Mars Rover, and why we should just save our money and take pictures in the desert. Other news stories include a teenager who collapsed after playing videogames for 4 days straight, and Joan Rivers’ protest against Costco by handcuffing herself to a shopping cart.
