Show Page

Adam is opening the show with the great Dave Dameshek in studio FOR THE ENTIRE EPISODE (YES!), BB has an excellent #TopDrop where Mike Dawson is reading some quotes about Adam.

Adam is now telling the gang about his trip to Vancouver for the live show along with Mangria tasting, he’s describing the “Wearing way too much silver guy” who occupied the seat next to him on his flight home.

Adam is now using the “turquoise guy” to make a point about the douche factor of both fashion choices, Adam’s further describing his flight home sitting next to “The Silver Samurai”.


Dameshek is now making a point that echoes Adam’s take on guys who cultivate a look having the pressure to maintain it, Adam has a great topper about being in the presence of Howard twice in the past 10 days.

BB is now telling the gang about seeing the documentary “The Other F Word” about punk rockers who have now aged into fatherhood, Adam is telling BB how he was just talking about it.

Adam is telling the gang about Howard remarking on Adam’s lack of a look and Adam is explaining how he also tried to not have a smell, Dameshek has a great quote to close it.


Adam is telling the gang about sending his uneaten dessert back to Economy class for Mike August, BB has a great descriptor for the action and Adam is joking about his vague single instruction.

Alison is now asking Adam about the details regarding Mike August and his first witnessed yawn, Adam is now sharing it less than spectacular fashion, he actually uses “blah, blah, blah”.

Adam and Alison are now joking about Mike’s violent sneeze that frightens people around him, hilarious quotes from Ace!


Whoa Dameshek just put two and two together and about Mike and his comedic resemblance to K.D. Lang and her song “Constant Craving” being a perfect connection to Mike’s unrelenting appetite for free food, genius Dave!

Adam is back to the trip, he’s telling them about landing in Vancouver and how they took a ferry to the island, they sold out of all the Mangria, all 14 cases, more than was consumed at all of the 2-3 Day Wine Riot tasting parties, holy shit!

Adam is telling the gang about 30 cases being consumed at the venue of just over 750 attendees, he’s citing the Canadian love of booze and making a point about it even dwarfs Minnesota.

Adam is sharing what he was told about the drinking age and liquor laws from province to province.


Adam says he signed 250 bottles and never read the back while doing it, he’s now sharing the photo a fan took that features the French label where they misspelled Adam’s name on his own wine bottle.

A total of 28k cases of wine are going to be sold in Canada featuring Adam’s name misspelled, Get On It Canadian fans, these will be collectors’ items, Dave just echoed my sentiment as I typed it.

BB is now joking about Adam calling Canada out on its collective alcoholism and spelling abilities, comedy gold BB!


Assistant Producer Gary is now on mic to explain to Adam, his name is actually correctly spelled in two places on the bottle, Adam is giving his take on misspelling in a greeting card, BB is disagreeing and Adam almost has a Hiroshima logic to his argument, complete with “all right then shut up”.

Adam is telling the gang about Jimmy Kimmel sending him a picture of a club sandwich from Italy as he was leaving for Vancouver.

Adam is telling the gang about Caroline’s and their version of the Club Sandwich, Dameshek is right in line with Adam giving his take on “Our Take on a Classic”.


Alison has a killer bleu cheese one liner, whoa!

Adam is now talking about beet salad and how it’s now being dominated by goat cheese on most menus, Adam is having Alison read the description of the Club Sandwich and she’s agreeing with Adam pre-emptively.

Adam is now praising the work of a Jewish deli and how they don’t fuck around with crazy ingredients in their traditional deli food, such as coleslaw.


Dave is now wondering why Chinese Food Restaurants even need menus since they’re so similar from location to location, Adam is sharing a short version of the “House of Nan King” story with Jimmy Kimmel, the “You eat Here Before?” story.

I like this story almost as much as the “He Say His Name Was Bobby” Chinese takeout story, Adam is now having the gang set up a long table with 3 chairs in their mind to set up a bizarre scene.

Adam is telling the gang about eating with Mike Lynch and Mike August only to be joined by a random diner, much like the BBQ employee from the story he told last week.


Dave has an excellent “whaaa?” and Adam is now working up what BB calls “quite a scenario” to ask if anyone of the gang would consider doing what the other diners did to him in this story.

Dave has a nice reference to the great “Big Night” he beat BB to the punch with that one.

Adam is telling the gang about working on the Paul Newman documentary and how Bob Sharp told them about needing a private room in the back to dine with Paul while on the road.


Adam just came up with “What Would Frank Sinatra Do?” as the antithitis of what these diners did to Adam, and BB is now filling Adam in that he’s right in multiple ways as Frank liked the opposite kind of dining attention when compared to Paul Newman, nice BB!

Adam is now asking what to refer to LL Cool J as, Dave has a funny Jimbo reply.

David Wild is now entering the studio for his 42nd appearance if memory serves, LL is now on the line making his ACS debut.

LL is telling the gang about giving back to young people and Adam is now asking him about his daily routine including workout.


David now bringing up LL’s break in and Adam forgot about it, Adam is now asking LL/Todd about watching the Super bowl in Miami in 1999, they pulled up next to LL Cool J driving a convertible Bentley with the stereo blasting.

LL is now confirming he was the guy to pull up next to them and it’s not just possibly racist assumption as Adam puts it, Adam is now plugging the “Do Something Awards”.

David is plugging an iTunes album for Todd and other artists.


Dave has a great question for LL citing some his classic lyrics, he wants to know if LL has eaten any peaches in 2013, Adam faux compliments Dave, perhaps not getting the full reference or just not finding the results fruitful.

Adam is now asking how anyone can dislike someone like LL, he’s using Kimmel’s motor complete with intelligence to explain why he achieves so much in life.

Adam is now describing the “motor” behind LL and his crazy work ethic, he says he wants that for his kids and David is now sharing an anecdote to further explain how great LL/Todd is, Adam is now calling him “The Black Chris Carolla”.


David is now sharing some untold details of LL’s rough childhood and Dameshek is making a point about undeserved self-esteem to echo Adam’s sentiments on the topic.

Adam is now bringing up his kids including Sonny’s claims about his speed even in the face of consequences, he’s using the kids different ability levels with stand up to further his point.

Alison has a great anti-comedy one liner that David spells out with an Andy Kindler retort, Adam says “don’t even get me started”.


Adam is now asking David about the controversial Rolling Stone cover, David is sharing his take and explaining he expressed his own displeasure on twitter, very insightful.




They’re back from break and Adam is responding to a listener voicemail about modern art, hilarious bird shit joke and intelligent “I suspect you can’t do art” test idea from Adam, where all abstract artists must prove they can first do the compulsories like in figure skating.

Hilarious basket of fruit and topless black woman riding a panther comments from Ace.

Adam and Dave are now commenting on how “The Shining” is the best example of delayed gratification, he’s contrasting the need for fast editing in modern cinema and more importantly making a point about society.


Adam is using his trusty foreplay analogy complete with “dick through a mail slot”, this is classic Aceman!

Adam, Dave and BB are discussing some things BB recalls from the documentary “Room 237” about the shining, Adam is very curious and Baldy is doing a solid job.

Adam’s got a killer reply about the family that was killed so a director could prove something to a writer is one of the funniest low key replies in the show’s history.
