Adam is now going off on the people who we all encounter who seem to be completely out of it, in particular drivers in Los Angeles; he’s quoting Mike August and making some fine points about the danger of motor vehicles.

This Superfan who’s been hit on foot over a dozen times and run over more than 5, totally agrees! Adam has a funny point about people challenging motorists and a great hypothetical about what if you encounter someone on their worst herpes filled morning.


Adam is making some larger points about the training he goes through every year for the celebrity races and how it could improve society if everyone was required to undertake it before getting their license.

Alison is telling Adam about her immediate reaction to becoming a licensed driver and Adam is sharing the anecdote of the time he got his dad’s Volkswagen airborne after getting his license.

Adam is now making a point about his gardener who used to leave the gate open to his pool, which posed a risk to his kids. He’s explaining that we’re wired to work “small to big” and has a great filtered water/shitty tube sock analogy.


Huey Lewis is now on the line; Adam is telling the gang about his love of fly fishing and now Kimmel is also into it, Adam has a funny comment about Jimmy getting into hanging from meat hooks if Huey took it up.

Adam is now asking Huey about his perfect SAT score, not only did he get a perfect on the SAT but also the advanced SAT and now he’s telling Adam about attending “Cornell”.

Adam is now launching into the irony inherent in the tempo of Eric Clapton’s song “cocaine” and now he’s doing his own song “Double Cappuccino” and has a great one liner about a fictitious Eric Clapton song.


Dana is now joining the show for his 16th appearance, you can find all of the previous visits in the official LibSyn archive and you can find all of this visits to the original ACP format on the Year 1 and Year 2 Glass Pressed Master DVD sets that will outlive us all.

You can also find Dana on the “Showgirls” Basic Cable Commentary in character as Huell Howser, also available via iTunes for 1.99.

Her top story is on the rumors/stories about the possible move for “The Tonight Show” and Adam is sharing some insight from his dinner with Babydoll.

Adam is now on a crazy “Rumors and Leaks” morning zoo riff, Dana is right in step and jumps in to help him; this is just like the classic bit with Patton Oswalt from Classic Loveline, Crank Yankers and the KLSX morning show “Boomer and the Nudge”.

Alison’s role as “Chelsea” is amazing, nice work A-Rose! Dana is now adding a dark twist to the bit, my god this is pure comedic insanity, next level shit!

They’re now playing some clips from Leno cracking jokes about NBC. Alison is reading a hilarious quote from Jimmy Kimmel.


Adam is now doing a live read, he’s working Dana’s kids into it and like always he’s lets Adam slide and goes along with it, this is brilliant, do not miss this live read!

Adam is now doing a great “ID4” riff, he’s using it as a metaphor to make his point and BB tries to jump in but gets the facts wrong and is immediately corrected by Ace.

Adam just literally explained all of society’s ills and the futility in our efforts by walking us through the plot of 1996’s “independence Day” even BB agrees!

Alison wraps the news, Adam is doing some plugs and wrapping the show
