Show Page

Adam opens the show to a funny “real inspiration of Doogie Howser M.D.” intro from Dawson and Lynch, Adam is now putting a challenge out there for the audience and the gang.

Adam is welcoming everyone to the show, BB has the drop of Gary saying “Adam Carolla is a racist” as today’s #TopDrop and Adam references Billy Mays.

Adam says the new idea is “Does it exist and how does it work” where people suggest things that might already exist and then describe how they might work if they do exist or could.


Adam is back to the dog shit argument and immediately gets on BB’s case, BB is defensive and mocks the notion of using someone else’s trashcan for a week of possibly leaking and stinging up their driveway.

BB says Nick came in and pissed him off with the ultimate “best cure to hangover is to not drink” style comment.

Adam is breaking down the poll that the was worded poorly and posted by the Adam Carolla Show staff without telling the fans on the show, so of course the haters voted against Adam.


Adam is now explaining what easements between properties are for the people out of state who might be unfamiliar.

Adam is now finding out about the poorly worded poll, Gina reads the tweet.

Gary steps in and says Nick purposely misspelled easement due to the character limit, BB says this is Adam’s “yeah but still” and he’s being defiant with his tone and insistence that dog shit in his trash can is “great” and he says he doesn’t have an emotional attachment to his trashcan, implying Adam does.


Adam says he was watching Sonny collecting all of Phil’s poop, Adam is mocking BB’s utopia with everyone’s trashcan filled with fresh dog shit, he wants there to be something else that exists to decompose dog poop.

Some place, some device, a composter of sorts, no plastic liner etc.

Adam describes what this thing looks like if it exists, he asks them if they think such a device does exist, Gina brings up agricultural uses and BB is trying to present a theory of some kind and Adam lets him release it.


BB shares how they have one made and designed for babies, he thinks it does exist and Adam asks him how it works, Gina says no.

BB says “breeders” and Adam has a great “straight people?” reply, he jokes about the poop being formed into hard candy.

Adam says he doesn’t know how much Phil weighs as he can’t life him once he hit over 100 lbs., Adam is now finding out that such devices do exist.


Gary has the details and explains how it works, Adam is dead on with this and he says he’s all in, Gary is sharing he details, Adam asks if Phil can fit in the compost tub, he will pull a ‘Cool Hand Luke’ on him, he’ll be eating eggs while serving his time.

Adam jokes about having Ray run into it by faking an air raid, telling him it’s a shelter, ha-ha!

Adam asks fans to contribute but not give anything lame like a clothes hamper.


Adam says Phil has taken to wedge himself between the headboard and Adam’s pillow, he comments on the crate training, he likes a dog that sleeps on the bed, why not, it’s fun!


Zip Recruiter Live Read


Adam has a picture of Phil who wedged himself, he’s all of 100 lbs. and he’s forced Adam to the very corner, he likes pushing up against him but he just keeps taking land.

Adam brings up the time he shared a bed with Ray who was suffering from ringworm during his bachelor party weekend.

Adam says there is nothing in it for Ray to roll over and take more space, it’s an intrinsic statement about his personality and benefits him in no possible way.


Adam is asking Gina about the end of her morning show with Mark Thompson, she is explaining how the station told them the morning show was being discontinued.

Adam and Gina both praise Mark, they were then told the radio show was ending in 3 days, not two weeks as they were first told.


Gina talks about the emotional show where they broke the news to the audience, Adam is sharing how he’s getting old and he’s artificially packing time on events, he states that the death of Michael Jackson coincided with time speeding up for him.

Gina shares how she ended up the new host of the show, it will be a music based program.

Adam is now saying that he imagens the people who sign up for focus groups and how a focused group “universal pizza” would come out, nobody would enjoy it.


Adam is now riffing about the horrible ingredients, cat food and liverwurst included.

BB’s hilarious “fancy feast” comment leads to Adam talking about the Jimmy (sprinkles) and Giblet stuffed crust.

Hilarious “friendly fella” description of the Jewish guy in the focus group.


Adam wants the details on the packaged deviled ham of his childhood, from what he has dubbed “The Sizzlean Era” and Gary has the info, it’s underwood deviled ham, it was a weird meat paste, ala cream cheese not akin to Spam.

Gina’s reaction is gold; Adam is now riffing about the pizza by committee that could never work.

Adam says they’re going wedge shaped, he’s riffing about the results and has a funny “New York, New York” joke followed up with a Hymie town comment, holy shit!


Adam says comfort food is good due to nostalgia, not due to the quality, he says dumb people like Joan Jett and Steve Miller, recognizing something doesn’t mean you like it or enjoy it.

Adam brings up the confusion element that is part of testing movies and shows, people will find something to be confused about if asked, it’s a horrible way to figure out what is good and what is not good.

Adam asks Gina about what they’re going to need to do per hour, 18-20 minutes of content per hour she estimates.


Adam talks about doing Dan Patrick’s show and how far away the facility is, way past LAX and they want him there around 5 A.M.


Gina shares her reaction to finding out about Mark, the freeway came to a dead stop and all the lanes were blocked, she says she went sideway and got off a freeway by using the freeway onramp.

Adam recalls his infamous “Silver Prius!” from 2004 LoveLine


Where he snaked down a freeway backwards and narrowly escaped a now hopefully dead gray haired old fuck who was trying to force him to stay put like a citizen’s arrest, asswipe!


BB and Adam give Gina congratulations and Adam asks if Mark is retiring now or what he’s looking at doing, Gina says he wants to do some podcasts and wants to talk to Adam.

Adam is asking Steven about his early work as a young writer, crafting unused pilots into feature length movies to resell overseas.


Adam recalls the show ‘Name of the Game’ that Steven worked on, Adam recalls it was a mystery crime series of some kind.

Adam says he feels like writing was treated more like a trade back then, less of an artistic endeavor.

Steven says ‘Hill Street Blues’ was a cultural water mark and people weren’t embarrassed to watch TV nor use the term art when discussing it.


Adam says back in the day acting was acting, you were projecting to the back of the room and over the top which then led way to method acting and Brando etc.


Adam is explaining made up movie to Steven.


Made Up Movie – T.V. Show edition

1st MUTV Keith with “Sweet Relief” and he attempts to produce the show too, telling them too much, classic rookie mistake.

Adam says coincidentally it is a dating show, he’s riffing up a crazy plot that’s off the charts hilarious and insane, Steven comes in with a urologist idea, Adam cast Sophia Vergara who can’t examine patients as she’s too hot and they all get boners, Steven says it’s too blue for him and his classic TV standards.

Adam is getting into cliché territory and BB tells Steven to mind his business and let them riff the best idea.

They just cast Neil Patrick Harris as the doctor along with Ed Asner, Gina just had him on the morning show so she can confirm he’s still mortal in reply to an inquisitive Adam.


2nd MUTV Cameron he has the title “Feeling Spree” and Adam says he could do 12 minutes setting up an elaborate scenario only for Steven to shit on it or they can just let Steven tackle it.

Steven takes it another medical direction, BB casts Rhea Pearlman and Danny DeVito in a divorcee’s massage therapist office.

Steven pitches it as a titty bar, Adam says it’s a male variant, a Schlong bar.

Adam says a couple of undercover cop’s ala ‘Cops and Donuts’ and his other long time riffed buddy cop cliché idea.


Adam is now pitching a crossover with “Faith Based” and they wrap it up, Adam promises a “feel alike” (sound-alike) soundtrack and they tease the news.

Adam asks Steven for a favorite TV show, he asks Adam which kid he loves more and Adam quickly says the boy, then jokes about it being a trick question he didn’t understand.

Gina asks him about the L.A. Law reboot, she asks about a glance at Corbin Bernsen and you can practically hear Adam think of the legendary L.A. Dodger Celebrity baseball game shower story, where Corbin was in let’s say “stark contrast” to their teammate Dennis Haysbert, he doesn’t mention it, Gina would have a field day with it though.


Gina’s News

1st Story is on the baby that interrupted the Donald Trump speech, Gina has the clip and they are providing some commentary over it.

BB says he’s the best thing to ever happen to politics, Adam says the whole thing about Trump is you can’t bite on every trump hook that falls in the lake, this is a non-story.

Adam says that he will put Trump up there with Black Lives Matters, there are enough instances but we can’t focus on nor include every time some black person charges at a cop with a machete, that’s not this.


2nd Story is on Andrew Luck’s hygiene from some comments made by his former teammate Matt Hasselbeck, Gina asks if he’s attractive and Adam says he’s built like an Adonis, BB has some extended mouth noises trying to lead Adam to the truth that he doesn’t’ find him attractive, weird and not as funny as he probably hoped, it was almost that out loud thinking noise thing he does that’s annoying 70% of the time.


They are doing another 2-3 laps on Andrew Luck’s physique and looks, Steven even says it’s like they’re obsessed and then has a swing and a miss with a “what’s in your wallet” line.


3rd Story is on conversion therapy being outlawed in Seattle, the 3rd American city to ban the practice.

Adam says the only fun part of the satanic cults is wearing the goat’s head and dancing around, hilarious!

Adam wants biker gangs to terrorize towns in lieu of toys for tots and Satanists to murder people ritualistically.

“wiccans you should be all constructing a voodoo doll of me and poking it with needles to get me to shut up” – Adam
