Live from the Irvine Improv


Listen to the Adam Carolla Podcast  



Show Summary

At the top of the show, Adam comments on how nice of a city Irvine is. He then takes some audience questions, and talks about the project he would not do over again, why he hates Olive Garden commercials, and what is acceptable to do at a bachelor party.

Alison starts up the news by discussing a new internet meme, ‘dog shaming.’ The guys then watch a classic Man Show clip, and discuss a woman suing Santa Monica for their new parking meters. Also in the news, the guys discuss the most stolen car in America, updates on Egg McMuffin breakfast restrictions, and a farmer who is feeding his cows candy. As the show wraps up, the guys talk about a scorned woman who put her house up for sale, and why you shouldn’t do yoga.

    I very much dislike how many live shows there have been lately…i dont mind them every once in a while but too much lately.

    • Aaron

      They’re just as good as the normal shows, if not better.

      • Ace

        Hear, hear. I don’t understand the hatred for the live shows. It makes no sense to me, are they jealous cause Adam doesn’t direct his attention to the podcast audience? I also listen to Doug Benson’s podcast and much prefer the live shows. To each his own I guess.

        I’ll take the show any way I can get it, you can’t beat free. And besides, what else am I gonna listen to, the radio? Pfffffftt! I said good day sir!!

  5. Lisa

    There is a hostess outlet in my hometown (Braintree, MA). My Mom used to bring us to buy treats, but we were middle class. I will have to ask her tonight why we didn’t just got to the regular grocery store.

  6. Kevin

    Meow!! Allison… love the new dress.

    Conservatives want control of your bedroom.
    Liberals want control of everything else.
    The Tea Party wants neither.

      then let them go live in the forest where there are no taxes, mexicans, atheists, or muslims from kenya.

      • liberalsRstupid

        Huh? No habla…

    • Josh

      The Tea Party want’s taxes to not be wasted, Wall Street or any other business bailed out and want smaller Gov’t. Many of the same things OWS wants but since they’re for smaller gov’t they’re labled racist, etc…meanwhile OWS just ignores laws and many times act violently and or destroy public/private property.

      • liberalsRstupid

        OWS are the opposite of the Tea Party. Occupy is a Marxist/Communist based movement… When did Communism become a principle of “small Govt” again??? Sheesh…

      Conservatives want you to believe in a God who makes demands of you.

      Liberals want you to believe in a God who loves you, unconditionally.

      The Tea Party wants you to compete on a level playing field, die and go to hell.

      This is an SAT question, where all answers seem right.

      • Brett

        You are retarded and most likely a pussy.

        Conservatives would can relate to chritianity, but don’t care as long as you have morals.

        Liberals don’t care what you believe in, as long as you bash conservatives and poeple with more money than you.

        The tea party was started with good ideas of shrinking the government, but has been infiltrated by many zealots of christian conservatism and thus has been given a bad name.

        This is an unbiased, pussyless, and non-complaining point of view.

        • liberalsRstupid

          Youre listening to the MSM too much… The media has been fighting/attacking the Tea Party at every turn since 2009 and your observation is proof and is wrong and you have been biased by the corrupt liars in the media.

      • liberalsRstupid

        Rex, youre really dumb, sorry to tell ya…

  8. liberalsRstupid

    Kathy Griffin is a nasty disgusting freak that needs to get punched in the face over and over. Not that you would be able to tell…

  10. GreatCalves82

    Alison,….. man. She is a bit of alright!

  11. Jdd5300

    Girl with wedding questions was really irritating. Uptight with constant annoying nervous laugh.

  12. JC

    Loving the live shows with no guest and more Alison–you guys are great together.

  13. Aaron

    ALL the McDonald’s in my city are 24-hours and have been for at least the last 10 years.

    • Rex Montana

      At 4AM, that’s probably more of a function of the number of people desperate for a job at McDonalds than the actual profitable demand. They’re open at that time like strippers are open at that time.

      • Dustin

        That makes a ton of sense Mr. Economics major, so McDonald’s is open so they can employ people? Jesus Christ this world is doomed! DOOOOOOOOMED!

    adam sure uses the word “rape” a lot. i wonder how he’d feel if he actually had some dry anal rape in his life. he might stop comparing it to getting parking tickets on his countach.

  15. BIRDY

    WOW! Alison Lookin’ sexy as hell!!

    First thing I thought when I saw the picture is Allison looks great- and low and behold four other people beat me to the punch- and I don’t comment on this kind of a topic (people’s looks) ever.

  19. Halo909

    This is a good live show. Natural pace and organic comedy and topics. Adam you are at your best when other people bring up stuff and you comment on them.

  20. Ace

    Wow Alison you’re looking great! Gold is good for you, just please lose the boots. I wanna see those lovely gams and how far they go. Great show, thanks!

  21. Hugh

    Fondelier is on the crapper, you can hear him through the door…

  22. Eric

    The live shows with no guest and just Alison and Brian have been great. Just the core group. No shouting over each other and just plain funny. Great stuff.

  23. SamuelJH

    Started listening three weeks ago. Always funny.

  24. Roghaj

    Going to the live show is great. Hung out and bought a book from Gary. It is really neat seeing all these people that you know from the show in real life.
    PS, My wife might have got on the Ace man’s nerves after the show.

  25. Robin

    The Swat tryout thing is on Hulu. It’s Season 4 episode 8.
