Show Summary

At the top of the show, Adam asks John to talk about the people and comedians that he finds to be the most talented. They also discuss the new one-man-show ‘Ghetto Klown,’ which has just left Broadway after a 6-month run, and is now playing in Los Angeles. The guys talk about how you put together a one-man-show, and Adam talks to him about Colombian drug lords and the ethics of looting during a riot.

Later the guys discuss the experience John had growing up, and how he managed to take the theater world by storm with his singular voice. John reveals some interesting rolls that he turned down, and also discusses his old hobby of buying up real estate. There’s also some talk about his role in the successful animated trilogy, ‘Ice Age’ (with a fourth film coming soon).

After a discussion about the glory of pawn shops, the guys talk about the importance of therapy. Adam says that as a society we don’t put enough emphasis on the topic of therapy, and suggests that people should take a bigger interest in the human condition. If all else fails, the guys agree you should be able to turn to your friends to help you sort things out.

    I try not to be negative here because this board is overloaded with negativity….. But… This guy is one of the worst actors.

    Leguizamo was a hyper-defensive dick to Stromo so I braced for the worst – but now he appears to have a more relaxed angle on life.
    I like him in small doses. I’m not being insulting with that. I mean that in a good way really. He is a good shot of adrenaline in a film or occasional special or something.

    I’m high on pills.

    Wasn’t Leguizamo in a boxing movie awhile back? I remember him on a late-night talk show ripping on ‘Rambo’ and talking about how the boxing in the ‘Rambo’ flicks looked fake.
    Compared to his boxing flick.
    Ahem.
    Like he could pull a car through snow.
    Achoo.

      maybe you do mean “loose”, in the sense of set free, release (“loose the hound…”), or is “lose” what you intended?

    The complisult and how to use it:

    Leguizamo: There’s always annoying comedians doing the voice of annoying hyena cartoons, remember that back in the day? … Paul Lynde …

    Carolla: Oh yeah! You do ‘Ice Age’. … My kids love that.

    what’s with this therapy crap? if you’ve been doing it all your life that means it doesn’t work.

    therapy is a complete fraud. therapists must either be some of the most deluded or morally corrupt people in the world. you’ve been at this for 5 years and there is no end in sight? here’s a hint, it’s a fucking $180/hr scam.

    Hey, I don’t like Alison, either, but the cruelty is uncalled for. Some of you guys go way too far.

    robx4610-04-2011

    @ D’Brickashaw (& other d-bags) you are the reason why she & so many others have to filter comments.
    You are just another example of an idiot poster who needs to say negative shit about people so that you can feel better about yourself.

    For you to say what you said… does not being able to get a comment through on youtube really get you that upset? That is pretty sad.
    Get a job & lay off the youtube, you clearly have too much time on your hands & not enough medication.

    I like Alison. I know most people do. Its just that the people with nothing bad to say don’t come here & post about how they have no complaints.
    I’m only here to tell you d-bags to STFU, stop the negativity & deal with your own problems instead of lashing out at a simple podcast show.

    Will you pricks shut the fuck up about Alison already? “Kike bitch”. . . really? What in the fuck do want, dead air? She’s a hell of a lot smarter and funnier than anyone, except, possibly Teresa, than any of the people with the balls to get on a show, that is absolutely ruthless. You pussies would have run out crying, after Carolla starts picking on you; which is his talent.

      Same……Adam is great 1 on 1 , but the show works better when Bryan pipes up a little and Alison does her thing. I actually want to hear MORE from Alison. Adam gets on a roll sometimes, but he misses that its a downhill roll sometimes.

  58. BenR
    BenR10-04-2011

    I think this is in the top 20 for best 1 on 1 Ace Interviews. Fun,intelligent,informative,slightly goofy but most of all entertaining. Best of all…no Alison to fuck it up with her annoyingly idiotic comments, or references that nobody ever fuckin gets. Everyone just kinda nervously laughs at what she says almost like the retarded kid that says something really stupid before shitting their pants. Everyone just kinda giggles at it but feels sorry for them. That aside, this interview was tops with me :)

  59. BenR
    BenR10-04-2011

    I’m kinda surprised Adam or John didn’t bring up the awful abortion of a movie John starred in known as the Pest from 1997. That is proof positive that he never ever ever turns down a fucking paycheck.

    The whole sponsorship thing is a farce. The real reason the show stays afloat is that Alison has so much gas the show is secretly underwritten by Exxon Mobil.

  74. jd
    jd10-05-2011

    This guy was tough to go back and forth with during the interview – he had no sense of rhythm – kept stepping all over Ace’s points.

    HOWEVER, this format, the one-on-one, is still the best format.

    This format is what got me hooked on the podcast in the first place.

    wow!!! I just today thought i would jump into the interactive forum world of this site since i love the show so much. But I just notice all the hatred. And why the hate for allison? I think she makes the show complete. Good job ace, allison and bryan. p.s. the news is my favorite part.

  78. Riggz
    Riggz10-06-2011

    Never really cared for this twerp… always thought he was kinda douchey and not very funny. After listening to this show, my feelings are the same.

    However the one-on-one podcasts are by far the best. This is the reason Adam became so popular on itunes. NO ONE NEEDS THE NEWS! It’s like the weather, traffic and time.
