Jim Jefferies Live at the Irvine Improv


Listen to the Adam Carolla Podcast  


Show Summary

Adam and the gang bring Jim Jefferies to the stage right from the top of the show. Adam and Jim talk about a benefit they recently participated in, and why Adam doesn’t understand silent auctions. Later they discuss whether or not Barry Manilow is gay, and seeing Siegfried and Roy in their prime. Adam then responds to an audience question about being scared, and talks with Jim about Paul Hogan.

Alison opens the news by reading through some of Osama Bin Laden’s recently released letters. The group also talks about a controversial Ashton Kutcher commercial, doing comedy in India, and a fire at Tyler Perry’s studios. After discussing the suicide of Junior Seau, the group talks about the most expensive piece of art ever auctioned. As the show wraps up, the guys discuss the stresses of being tall, and when Adam’s dad would rent records from the library.

      Wake up to yourself! Jim is the best comedian out there at the moment.

    • Robin

      I didn’t know him before this one, but he’s pretty damn funny.

    Yikes, sounds like Adam had one too many beers. Should have let Jeffries take over, that guy was hilarious

  3. Tracilace

    I met a young black chick who HATES Tyler Perry.

    Your Tyler Perry riff was great. I have thought this forever and have confirmation from actual black people that this is the case.

    Get it on!

    They should have a regular show together. Wow.

  8. Patrick

    There is NO WAY that tan can be real.

    Rob Schneider is actually part Filipino, and the few Filipinos I know like him for that. But we love you anyway, Adam.

    R.I.P. Jr :( a legend

  13. mj

    So… what happened to the Larry Miller update?

  14. Halo909

    the UGG boot bit was the best. Most of the time I smile and laugh in my head at your comedy but that power strip bit is top rate. I literally was falling off my chair from yesterdays podcast when Allison did the Osama story and you did that power strip bit. Great stuff

  15. benyens

    What an obnoxious accent.

    Allow me to play doubles advocate here for a moment. For all intensive purposes I think you are wrong. In an age where false morals are a diamond dozen, true virtues are a blessing in the skies. We often put our false morality on a petal stool like a bunch of pre-Madonnas, but you all seem to be taking something very valuable for granite. So I ask of you to mustard up all the strength you can because it is a doggy dog world out there.

      You forgot, “We Cannot Judge”, and “Everything happens for a reason.”

    • setlasmon

      that there is one helluva lot of malapropisms!

      was about to reply and correct you before I saw it was a joke. im glad I was able to stay cool, calm and collective.

    • Dennis

      You crack me up Jimmy!!

  18. ib

    Jefferies is comedy gold.

  19. Dave

    Jim was hilarious!

    RIP Junior.

  20. jw

    Hilarious! One of the best this year!

  21. Sean

    Jim Jefferies was great, pretty much carried the show. Crowd loved him. Adam felt threatened by a real comedian, and proceeded to talk too much. Mahalo

    • ZekeG

      What the fuck are you talking about? How the hell do you see that much into it. It was a good show. Great back and forth. He felt “threatened”?

      • Patrick

        You mad bro?

  22. Tim MacDonald
    Tim MacDonald05-05-2012

    This show was very good, but Adam was a little too wasted. His tongue was a little thick. If Adam was tighter and listening rather than steamrolling the interplay with Jim and Bryan could have been better. Come on Ace man, the party starts after the quitting time whistle blows.

  23. Mason jar
    Mason jar05-05-2012

      Wait, what????? You must cease and desist w/ this insanity at once.

      Good day, sir.
      I said GOOD DAY.

    this is the ark of the covenant. acacia wood covered in gold. but if you peer into the ark your face will melt like a nazi.

  25. Steve

    Funny show. Jim Jeffries and Ace have great chemistry.

  26. Mr. Honkington

    Ace needs to take a back seat when quest is hitting it. He is too competitive.

  27. Mason Jar

    Take that!

  28. murderfan's revenge
    murderfan's revenge05-05-2012

    damn Jim is getting kinda liberal. when he was telling Adam about Indian people Adam tunned out. because Adam could not let himself here anythiing good about a race of brown people or positivaty.

  29. Donkey

    you were gonna update us on Larry Miller. Didn’t hear that.

  30. Anna

    Man I hope Jim gets his shit together before he drinks himself to an early grave, the show was hilarious as always.

  31. Ryan

    Wow, normally I don’t like the live shows, but Jeffries brought it, that guy is hilarious. Need more Jeffries and less Wilde.

  32. ace_and_jj_fan

    I wish these 2 would work together more. They put on a great podcast and could have gone on for another 90 minutes.

  33. james murdock

    Hey Adam, and the Ace broadcast crew. Love the show listen to it daily from the app. I told all my Facebook friends about the show. Thanks for the wonderful show. I live here in Anaheim and would love to sit in during a show. seems like it would be fun.

      Adam doesn’t read.

  34. Marc

    Jim Jefferies brings it

  35. Dave

    Great podcast. Jefferies and Adam back and forth was hilarious.

    Kutcher is the most overrated thing in Hollywood.

  36. Erick

    Not often Adam gets schooled like that. It was like watching Mike Tyson v Trevor Berbick.

  37. Grant Young
    Grant Young05-08-2012

    Barry Manilow is gay? Come on… really? Next thing you’ll be telling me is that Sigfried and Roy are gay.

  38. labowner

    Anyone know why this show disappeared from Itunes?

  39. labowner

    Wy would you not post a legitmate question. This podcast has been removed from ITunes. Why?

  40. Tom Keller
    Tom Keller05-12-2012

    This was one of the best recent podcasts. The emphasis was on comedy instead of repetitive bitching.

  44. brewster

    Jim is very sharp-witted and was hilarious here. Adam was good, but you can tell he thought he fell in the shark tank!
