Jim Norton


Listen to the Adam Carolla Podcast  


Show Summary

Jim Norton is in studio from the top of the show, and talks with Adam about his gig on ‘Opie and Anthony’. Adam refers to a clip of their radio show where one of the hosts calls Adam a liar and an asshole. Dr. Drew calls in to help offer a different perspective about their meeting.

While Drew is on the line, Jim asks him about a particular sexual fetish. Adam recalls some of his conversations with Jim and wants to know more about where some of his more bizarre sexual addictions come from. Alison asks him about his earliest pervy moments, and Jim stands up for Craig’s List’s former glory.

In the news, Alison lends more details to the Pinkberry founder’s attack on a homeless man. Adam rants about homeless guys with tattoos and piercings, and talks about guys who bring delicious outside food onto airplanes. Later the group discusses the word ‘cunt,’ bizarre fast food mascots, and the woman who offered sexual favors in exchange for McNuggets. The show wraps up with the guys commenting on which occupations Americans trust most.

  2. David

    Carolla treated Opie and Anthony like 40 year old women treat him. I never heard the show but Jimmy loves it.

        holy crap i checked out that cliti site….awesome!!!

  9. Heather

    Does anyone else hear “dont worry- be happy” playing while Jim talks about his numerous turn-ons? Adam and Jim seem to stop talking for a split-second, sound distracted. I’m distracted! Who is playing that music! haha

  10. Vince

    We need a video of Alison dancing to her “news” song…that would be awesome…

  11. mitch

    These two guys are looking weirder and weirder with age.

  12. rzog

    This guy is a total creep! I was praying for the news to get going with my girl Allisyn. Boom Roasted!

    I feel like Alison and Jim Norton are kindred spirits. Under the right circumstances Jim could turn her towards his dark side.

  14. Rob

    Opie and who? sound like a couple fruit cakes. no one knows who those fags are. Adam should knuckle that pussy up for talking shit. I dont know who i hate worse them or the guest for taking up for them, hes a weirdo and a little too honest. Go smell opie and anthonys piss and never come back.

    Norton’s got issues…

    …Also, architects are douches. They can’t build a house and hope they get mistaken for being an engineer.

    • May Kadoodee

      Commercial Architects are also bad. They may have the “vision” but us poor schlubs in the construction industry have to make their “vision” work in the real world, good times. Time to drink some beers and rape an Architect! yeah I will, SNORT!

    This guy is weird….. I can’t stand guys like this; everything turns into a sex talk and what he’s ‘done’. Just record your voice and listen to it. Dont come on here and do it. Gross.

    • Poochie's Uncle
      Poochie's Uncle01-20-2012

      Lighten up “bad Styx song name”, it sounds like you are in need of a big black Mandinka to loosen you up a bit.

    • Cyrus

      Get your fucking ears cleaned. Did you not hear Ace ASKING HIM the fucking questions about it? Wow you are stupid.

  19. Ras

    Holy shit I love Jim Norton – but the photo of him looks like a younger Don Rickles.

  20. mnoswad1

    Nobody wants to hear about (or picture) this visually disgusting goblin’s turn ons……..his “Leno” stand up is about as much as I can stand.

    Fast forwarded past most of his nonsense and therefore I’m sure I missed the good stuff from Adam and Alison in doing so, but I cant stand Norton’s aurally offensive new york vocal inflections.

    If you promise never have him back, I’ll promise to buy something from Auto Shepherd.

    • Poochie's Uncle
      Poochie's Uncle01-20-2012

      I hope Adam has him on every day just so you will stop listening, you whiny douche-nozzle.

  21. Samara

    I feel special – I met Adam at a film festival a couple of years ago and he shook my hand, looked me in the eye, and was genuinely very kind. Sorry, I can’t back this asshole rep you apparently have.

  22. ChicagoJeff

    Best episode in a long time. Great work. Jim, O&A and Adam are the greatest audio entertainers on Earth!

      Wrong! Adam and Howard! Great Pod all week from Ace, A and B who do an extra show during the week so that we get something on Friday. Then, how about an exclusive interview with Roger Waters of pink Floyd, who never does interviews; on Howard. Sorry, you and the O&A Army Blow Ass!

      • Poochie's Uncle
        Poochie's Uncle01-23-2012

        Howard is still the best out there, he has been doing great radio/satellite for 35 years. But you can’t deny Opie and Anthony are very funny and Jimmy Norton is f’ing hilarious on the show.
        Howard and O&A are like the Yankees and Mets. We each have a team we follow but there is no reason you can’t root for both teams.

  23. Adam

    Solid pod. Get a sports guy, maybe Dave or Rich once a week. Or even sports guys from other pods, like if there is a UFC coming up, get a MMA podcaster to come on. Kinda like when Atchity from RT comes on and talks movies.

  24. @©€ ?®ê????
    @©€ ?®ê????01-20-2012

    Shame Adam and O&A have some beef… the only two radio/podcasts I listen to and enjoy. Would be phenomenal to have them as guests on ACS or to hear him on the Virus on the XM portion of the show.

  25. Mark

    Jim Norton’s on, you’re thinking this is going to be cool. He starts talking weird sex shit, and you’re thinking it’s going to be interesting. Then he says “I liked the smell of piss as a kid” and things get too real too fast.

  26. Tyrone Washington
    Tyrone Washington01-20-2012

    It must be a West Coast vs. East Coast thing, but, listening to Jim Norton and his disgusting sexual interests and the gravelly voiced Opie getting all bent out of shape because Adam didn’t pay him the respect he thinks he deserves is tedious beyond description. “Lovelines”? What an idiot. I’ve never heard the Opie & Anthony program, and I’m sure I’m not missing anything. That New York/East Coast accent is grating and the “tough guy” act is pretty tiresome. I’m confident, if Adam cared, which he doesn’t, both Opie and Anthony would be turned to dust in both a physical confrontation and a verbal one. Also, Jim Norton is gross.

  27. GuyDudeBro

    finally something worth listening to. @May Kadoodee you are a fucking turncoat, don’t let me catch you posting here again or I’m gonna let the internet crows loose on you, get lost birch!

    • Hugh Gashol
      Hugh Gashol01-22-2012

      May knows that Adam and Howard are the best on the mic in any form and that makes her a turncoat, you deserve a blast from Ray’s pool water engorged ass.

  28. DES

    Norton is a tad creepy.. kind of funny but I dont want this guy as a neighbor.

    good show

  29. a

    Wow, you can really tell when they tape two podcasts in a row. All the energy was gone.

  30. donewithidiots

    Good stuff. Norton is a good guest, VERY open.lol Dr. Drew will be a great asset to the show. At least it will give Allyson less time to bash our military.

  31. volkan

    cool.. that was me who tweeted that youtube clip to adam.. ahh my life is sad but that was cool

  32. Bubba

    What’s the name of the porn site Jim mentioned on the show?

  33. Katie

    Yikes. Jim Norton is proof that some people are just born perverted. And yessss more Dr. Drew!!! More Dr. Drew!!!!

    • Sig

      ‘born perverted’? I’m sure he’s leaving out all the child abuse.

      • Joe

        You beat me to it. This guy is damaged in a not so natural way.

  34. dickda1

    This was a good show (not as great as DAG of course).

    It would have been much better with a video feed – hint, hint. Bring back the full show videos!!!!!

  35. Ellis In Culver

    Norton wears you down a bit. It is good to know retail for Adult services.

  36. Joker

    Not enough time spent on the sleezyness of salespeople. Please pick up this topic in future podcasts.

  37. Sig

    At least the next time Drew comes on the show, it won’t include Adam yelling at Donny for 30 mins. Adam and Drew Time is sacred.

  38. Mr. Honkington
    Mr. Honkington01-21-2012

    NOt a good show. Perversion is not funny or entertaining. Jim Norton is not talented. Too much of a Howard stern vibe from the show. Ace is better than that. Over all the show is still batting .950 though.

  39. ScottBaio

    Jim Norton: Creepy and NOT entertaining. Not sure who scores lower on IQ tests, Norton or a Kardashian???

  40. donuts

    Adam comes off as a coward arguing for like 10 minutes with Norton over an issue which was really between him and O&A. Jeez, it started to get awkward and I could tell Norton wanted him to move on already to a new topic since Norton wasn’t there at the time of the incident to really add another perspective.

    If adam is really so worked up over the incident then he should go on O&A and resolve it directly, instead of putting Norton in an awkward position where he has to defend both point of views

  41. TheMidsizeLebowski

    Great episode, Jim Norton’s the man. Please book this man whenever he makes his way to the west coast.

    Whenever Guitar Center salesmen wont get off my back I have them run my credit. It gets rid of them for about 10 minutes and after they see my credit score I never hear from them the rest of the visit.

    What was that website Norton mentioned?

  44. Cyrus

    Nice to hear Drew wants to do some podcasts.


    Adam Carolla is the only person worth listening to. Howards smart, not funny…….. or entertaining. “O&A” are obscure at best. Jim Nortans great, I love him on CK’s shows. I listen to Adam all day at work. thats about 8 or 9 hrs of “Lovelines” and either the days podcast or an ep. from 08 TACS. my favorite year of Ace is 08. Im also a fan of Giovani. If your out there buddy, lets do an ace trivia. On the show or just for fun. either way contact me.

  46. donewithidiots

    I won’t go to guitar center anymore. They made me wait forever to make my purchase because the management trains them to wait on 3-4 people at the same time. Not a big fan of salesmen anyway. Now I go to a local small shop for better service, and used guitars/supplies.

  47. Hyperbole Asshole
    Hyperbole Asshole01-22-2012

    that all seems like an act. Its the Stern thing of when you arent funny and arent creative just keep talking about sex. It shows who is a truely mediocre comic and not that talented. I doubt George Carlin would talk about that shit for an hour and a half. I expect more out the Aceman than bottom feeding with this hack. Alison is sexy, smart and I just want to watch a nice sunset with a bottle of wine, snuggle and maybe have her put her thumb in my anus…….no biggie

  48. Juiceman3013

    Beams were crossed for me on this freaky Friday. My ACE podcast featured disturbing puerile jizz comedy that left me feeling grossed-out and kinda sickened. Then, in some upside-down way, O&A w/Ron Bennington was pure solid high-quality interviews and laughs. (Okay, Opie did try to get a teen jizz-comedy bit going, briefly). Anyways, everything was backwards and it made me sad!
    *BTW: I’m sure there is no actual problem with Opie and Ace but a classic case of really bad-timing, confusion, taking a tone of voice wrong etc, unintended slights etc.

  49. Scott

    Yea, I get it. Everybody is stupid, everything sucks. Great stuff.

  50. Gina

    I’ll skip next time this guy’s on. I felt like the guest had nothing more to talk about than sex, which in people older than teenagers is kind of sad.

  51. Marshall Artz
    Marshall Artz01-23-2012

    Wonderful improvisation about marketing strategies like Geico/Gecko and Lil’ Jimmy and his cuckolding fetish. Adam is a supreme conversationalist in the league with Dick Cavett.

  52. Chief Bullshagger
    Chief Bullshagger01-23-2012

    You’re a dirty little bald-headed filthy fucking bastard, Norton, you disgusting horrible fucker. Great stuff. Love it.

  53. Yakov

    Glad to know that Don Rickles loves the smell of piss. What a fucking creep this dude is. Not in a funny way as many have noted.

  54. beelzebub

    What a piece of shit episode, with a fittingly piece of shit guest.

  55. Danger Hole
    Danger Hole01-25-2012

    Please bring Jim Norton back as often as possible! He is the only redeeming quality of Opie’s and Anthony’s show. Seriously, their show sucks out loud.

  56. Mike

    Yikes, more Jim Norton that I needed to know.

  57. racingracist

    Lil Yimmy!

  58. CHIP

    I sensed the sexual tension between Alison and Jim Norton.

  59. Joe

    I love reading these comments. Half of the people hate Jimmy, the other half love him.

    Also, the O & A clip is like 4 years old, they never talked about Adam before or after so it was never a fight or feud, Opie is just a bitch sometimes and back then he was fucking non stop yelling about something. Anyway, Howard Stern sucks.
