Zane Buzby


Listen to the Adam Carolla Podcast


Show Summary

As the show opens, Bald Bryan talks with Adam about The Car Show, and Adam discusses the rushed style of filming a television series. Dawson reads some email questions, which lead Adam to contemplate a second shot at life, and why he loves peeing in the sink so much. He also responds to an emailer who’s having a tough time with screws.

Director Zane Buzby comes in studio next, and talks about her ‘Survivor Mitzvah’ project. Adam also asks her about why she thinks Jews in Hollywood are anti-Israel. Zane talks about her experiences coming to California and having to learn the ‘valley girl’ lingo for a part she was cast in a Cheech and Chong movie. Later, they talk about her appearance in the film Spinal Tap, and Alison reads the resume of Zane’s television directing career.

In the last part of the show, Adam asks Zane to talk more about the Survivor Mitzvah project, which is a charity that provides money to survivors of the Holocaust who are still living in poverty. She talks about her travels to Latvia and Lithuania, and what lead her to become passionate about this cause. As the show wraps up, they talk about the film ‘Americathon,’ which has an all-star cast and very bizarre plot.

    Ya’ll figured out Adam is on Celebrity Apprentice yet?

    • MikeVonZ

      Thats hellacool. Checked it on the wikipedia page for Season 12

      Yes, when I posted it yesterday

    You guys should try to get Christopher Hitchens on before he croaks.

    • mal

      Yes, please. No choking but as a guest.

    • r

      That would be a little beneath Hitch.

    As an atheist, I understand the ultimate conclusion — the celebrated dirt nap.

    I don’t want to be a rotting corpse. And that’s why I pray, and I pray I’m something special.

    It’s like yoga.

    I never took much interest in the apprentice, but I might actually watch this thing if aceman is on there. Love to see him on there, then get the “keeping it real” backstory when he does the podcast.

    Like imagine he, and his team are raising money for diabetus research, and they do alright, but then just as they get back to the van a cop hands Adam a stack of Chickenshit tickets that have to come out of the profits. We’d all know what he’s thinking, so it’d be funny to see him have to react.

  7. oh adam

    there’s no ethnic cleansing in Latvia
    …unlike Istrael

    • cow12

      latvia was occupied by the nazis (your people) with whom the latvians collaborated in extermination of thousands of jews… unlike israel

  9. Sluggh

    Plus, in “Hitch-22,” Christopher admits to choking a lot of cock during his schoolboy days. Ace would have a field day, but the existence of America’s greatest polemicist has certainly never penetrated his car/football/boxing/drywall cocoon. Never happen.

  10. Jarviswabi

    I’m half-hoping Adam gets kicked off the Apprentice early on so I don’t have to suffer through an entire season of that nonsense just to see his funny moments. Donald Trump is an insufferable blowhard and the rest of the cast does not look that interesting. But I have a feeling our Aceman may go far, since he should be popular with the guys during the early part when it’s Men vs. Women, and even after that, he’s smarter than most of those other D-listers on there. So it may be a long winter of bad hair and screaming matches for us.

  12. attack_crows

    It has to be Celebrity Apprentice, right?

  13. Melinda

    I want to know how Adam handled those “brainiacs” on Celebrity Apprentice (Real Housewives yenta, Aubrey O’Day)

  14. nater

    Slot head screws are the preferred method for all electrical as they pretty much universal.
    They also tend to be stronger and more reliable than Phillips screws.

    The penny will never go away because it is a more accurate way of calculating sales tax at 8.5%.

  15. Nestor T. Velasquez
    Nestor T. Velasquez10-26-2011

    Sure, Celebrity Apprentice 12 has some duds in the cast. But they also have some pretty good ones as well. Along with Adam, there’s; Penn Jillette, Lisa Lampanelli, Paul Teutul Sr., Dee Snider among others. Should be fun.

  16. Alex

    I actually crapped in my yard this monring.

  17. hmm

    Think of it this way Aceman: what if Mexico decided to create a country of their own in California and said that God told them it was ok? This is a little like what the Jews did with Israel. This is why Palestinians don’t like them.

    I love Alison!!!!!

    • marco

      What do you mean “what if?”

  18. hmm

    correction: “what if Mexicans…”.

  19. Liam

    Who the hell is Jeff Beck Not Jeff Beck?

  20. hmm

    BTW, glad to see there’s some Hitchen fans that listen to this show. Hitchens and Adam would be a bad ass show!!

      I wonder how calling someone “snot-nosed” ever became an insult. What a specious put-down. As an angry Internet troll, I think you can do better.

        “Charlie Sheens nostrils are so snotty and full of coke he calls them the Hilton sisters” – Jeff Ross

      • Connard

        I love how Wellington loves to single out ‘trolls’ when he is no better. In his mission to condemn those who complain he ironically shows that he is greatest hypocrite as his posts are solely comprised of complaints of others.

        Check your moral superiority at the door, Jack-off, your hands aren’t as clean as you think.

          “Jack-off” is another specious insult. Is that how they put people down in whatever hemisphere you live in?

  23. MacMason

    Celebrity Apprentice? Goddammit we’re in for another Dancing With the Stars. At least more people will listen to the podcast.

  24. Dan

    Jesus. Another guest who isn’t important? Why have anyone at all? Just riff with BB, ML and AR. It’s funnier. Love it when BB calls AC “buddy.”

    I love how Wellington loves to single out ‘trolls’ when he is no better. In his mission to condemn those who complain he ironically shows that he is greatest hypocrite as his posts are solely comprised of complaints of others. ———

    Yeah I think this irony is lost on the Ace fluffers and strident defenders. You can always tell the really hardcore, intractable ones, because they point out silly /spelling grammatical errors when insulting people who dare to post anything that is even vaguely pejorative. It’s like they are so enraptured by Adam they end up emulating him on the forum.
    I’m above it all
    your stupid for even trying to disagree with me
    I really don’t care though, because who cares
    I’m smarter than everyone, but only because I use common sense

  32. DES

    I know Ace is busy filming The Celebrity Apprentice but man todays show sucked.

    Get with the HA HA’s Ace!!

    wing bowl bitches!!!

    • Tanner

      Every. Day. He puts out a show every damn day and you can’t even string together a complete sentence with an ounce of humor in it, yet you complain about the quality of the show? Worthless shits, the lot of you.

  33. Braccatosus

    Zane was great as the Devil-possessed alumnus of Lizzy Borden High School in the underrated film ‘Class Reunion”.

  34. dre

    its annoying when adams ignorance in the foreign cultures department is fed by someone as dumb as zena… i wanna know who her tourist guide was in belarus and the ukraine for her to fill american listeners heads with that misinformatiom and flat out bullshit… if only she were funny bullshitting, then maybe…

  35. Harry Seaward
    Harry Seaward10-26-2011

    Hey come on Dre, Ace is not ignorant about foreign cultures. If he was I would look pretty stupid for taking his social/political commentary seriously. Adam is so politically insightful , consistent and intelligent that he is practically on Glenn Beck’s level. Ace I think you have a future in political punditry my (best) friend.

  36. yeah

    I’m a pathetic loser who has, “yeah” outdone myself. (That’s super witty, right?)

  37. Fresneck Freddy

    rants railing against the virtues of
    of pocket lint……I hear ya man…whoa

    ace…basic cable commentary
    required for Red State……WOW is all
    I can say about that movie….you’ll be able to spend 20 minutes busting on John Goodman alone….a must see that will leave you punching your junk for wasting a dollar………..whoa

  39. Heidi K
    Heidi K10-26-2011

    Wtf is wrong with Alison? She must have the weirdest/worst sense of fashion ever. What’s up with the hideous (unflattering) black & white patterned dresses w/those same tired black boots every single podcast? It’s like some bizarre uniform. Does this chick not own a single pair of jeans, a t-shirt, and maybe some tennis shoes? It’s so fucking strange and perplexing.

  40. Chuck

    huh. well at least NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice” isn’t usually anchored to the 2012 Super Bowl in some way….and it being October, at least there isn’t any time for a network, say…..oh, I don’t know…..NBC, which coincidentally has US broadcast rights to “CA”, to, I don’t know, “cook”, as Ace says, anything over the next 4 months…

    best part is, had Ace just said “i’m on vacation for 2 weeks”, maybe there’s a chance this never gets out.

    AR…I’ll be happy to show you a slot screw

  42. Kaufman325

    I listen to the podcast everday. I think Adam is hilarious. But he knows nothing about history or current events. Reducing the Israel/Palestine issue to anti-Israel or pro-Israel is an unnecessary simplification. Just look at the debate within Israel between two of the major political parties, the kadima and Likud. Both recognize the need for a two-state solution. Adam rants without any facts or context, and instead relies on a chambered emotional response.

  43. Levelheadsteve

    I hope Alison isn’t wearing the black boots all the time to hide cankles. That’s gonna slow down my “jack” to her by three minutes.

  46. Mike

    I love people who talk out of their ass like this woman. Google Bandera and see if you can find anything remotely close to what she said about him and Ukraine…

    • nicatron

      Zane confused Bandera (who was responsible for hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians being executed) with Andrei Chikatilo.
      Both have Hispanic sounding names.

  47. LOLZY

    The drill sarge drop when they were talking about types of screws at around 18:00 is perfect.

  48. Stan

    I wish they would just by-pass guests like this and have an Adam, Brian and Alison show only. She was bad.

    For someone who knows a ton about construction, Adam seemed pretty confused about which screw the guy was asking about.
