Live from the Irvine Improv


Listen to the Adam Carolla Podcast  


Show Summary

At the top of the show, Adam rants about a day at the zoo with Sonny. He then answers audience questions about the highest he’s ever been, the potential of moving to the OC, and how he almost didn’t work with Jimmy Kimmel. Later he tells an anecdote about partying with a pre-fame Will Ferrell.

Alison opens the news discussing LA’s ban on plastic grocery bags. Other news stories include a vial of Ronald Regan’s blood being auctioned, and the death of the remote control inventor. Adam also shares his thoughts on participating on shows like Dancing with the Stars and Celebrity Apprentice. As the show wraps up, the guys chat about portable bidets, a 101 year old hit by a 91 year old, and whether or not Adam should force his kids to play an instrument.

  3. E

    I can’t help but repeat myself. Adam needs structure or else he’ll jut say the the same thing over and over. Get to more news or something. I’ve been listening ace for something like 17 years. Some of this shit is getting fucked out.

      He’s entertained you for free for 17 years and you can find a way to complain about this gift? God, what an ungrateful douche you are. Just move on.

      • fanbla72

        i had to quit listening mid-way.

        too much bollocksy dribble and his nasal and whiny tone amplified in the live mic set up was way too much for me to handle.

        i’m about a week behind their pods so i just skipped to the next one.

        mm mm, how’s the taste of Carolla’s anus in which you have your tongue firmly and neatly inserted?

        i’m curious, he’s entertained me for free for a 2 years, does expressing my opinion here make me a douche, just ungrateful, or both?

  4. nAAter

    I wonder if Sonny is going to suffer the Sports Illustrated cover curse.
    Allison, did you say “the cabin’s nest?”

  5. fattkamper1

    Lynette please buy Adam some new button up shirts.

  6. AngelAdamFan

    How is Larry Miller doing, Adam didn’t give an update on the podcast. Maybe it was at one of the live shows?

  11. Morgan

    Of course ace man always wears the plaid shirt and ball cap, but has anyone ever noticed that every live show alison wears the exact same thing?! black top with black boots.

    • Wes

      I’ve noticed the same thing. She’s cute as hell and has a great sense of humor, but what’s up with the boots every single time. Doe she have cankles?? Superfluous toes?

    I’d rather wade through Troll stew than look back one more time 7 hours later and see that my comment is still being moderated. Fuck you Carolla staff. Took something fun and turned it into shit. “yo, gimmie annuder one o’dem plastick beers…” Assholes.You Fucking Fucks getting the FUCKING point?!?!?I’m not prone to profanity with posts buck fuck it.The message board is not for your enjoyment in your refractory ass fucks. Bald Brians shrunk fucking brain tumor has better instinct commedically than you’ll ever jerk off too.For the love of Christ I’d prefer a solid ass raping from the Rape-bank PD than continue to fuck my own mouth with you AIDS infected pubic hairs and your lesbian cluster fucks.
    Seriously, what exactly was the problem with the way the message board was run before? Yah, Trolls would pop up and bug the rest of the regulars, whatta ya gonna DOO!? Carolla’s staff has now become the Dodger Dog of messenger boards. Congrdulations.

  15. Goldy

    What happened to Ralphie May, and why are there still no comments on this ep and it’s after 5pm?

  16. James

    You need a “click through” link for auto shepherd. I just bought an oil filler cap and cam here first to see if I could click through.

  17. Andrew

    Where were the drops from Bryan? I’m halfway through and only one so far.

  18. corporations8mybaby

    Gonna have to SHIT on ADAM’s point: I lost $300 glasses twice and $139 iPod ear phones once.. and now I buy $20 Sunglasses which have a nice heft and $25 ear phones that actually sound better than the Apple or Klipsch ones. Hire Americans to make cheaper ones and I’ll pay $50– but the super expensive ones are a waste.

    Apparently you can’t sleep when you’re dead…

    It was 2025. Former president Carolla had risen from the grave. The tragedy had ocurred only 2 weeks into his first term(barely enough time to outlaw anything) was being undone…and there would be hell to pay.

    They had really done it this time. It was bad when they, his children, had submitted to the first tandem crossover organ donor gender reassignment. It was what they(Nate and Sonya) did next that had cause his fatal heart attack… Under California’s newly passed same gene pool marriage law they sealed his fate. Still, it was what they did after that that really went too far…The announcement of the chain of Carolla Memorial Dinoseum and Passion fruit Tea Emporiums that they planned to open across the state…all funded with their inheritance courtesy of Papa Carolla.
