Adam explains that Sonny is tagging along after Adam filled in for Dan Patrick, Adam crushed it and Sonny got to see it live, BB has a cash/casino payout sound effect for today’s #TopDrop.

Adam is talking about his insane hyper vigilance and how he dreads an early wakeup, he knows he’s going to wake up at 04:14 when the clock is set for 04:20 and how an early 10:30 P.M. bedtime is just not realistic.


Adam talks about the level of prep that goes on for Dan’s show that Adam can’t assist with and needn’t worry about but the part of this brain he needs for the traffic cop work when dealing with the cast of the show and the format is what goes when you’re up late watching Phelps swimming at the Olympics at 10:30 P.M. and burning up your 6 hours of sleep you had planned for.

Gina just walked and now Sonny is giving his take on the wakeup, Sonny has some funny anecdotes about his alarm clock.

Adam shares a photo of Sonny passed out at the other shop on a sofa, Gina says he looks like a chalk outline, Adam says it looks like he was thrown from a building, like a Gay Iranian, holy shit!


Adam talks about early morning wakeups for flying home after a show, in comparison those are a breeze to the ones where you got to be awake and performing.

Adam shares his hilarious conversation with Natalia at the Disneyland Hotel, about to watch a movie and eat smores, she revealed that they hired the expensive escort service, they even got the same lady as last time, hilarious riffing about Lynette making the neck slash move telling her to not reveal that.

Adam is seemingly fine with it and shares Natalia’s hilarious reaction to their early morning schedule.


Adam talks about Phil attacking and “raping” a passed out Sonny, hilarious and bizarre descriptors of the giant dog enthusiastically encountering Sonny.

Sonny gives his take and he explains what it was like to see him perform live on Dan’s show, Sonny now quotes Adam with “I woke up in Phoenix This Morning” from ‘The Martian’ screening at Phil Rosenthal’s house.

Lynette gave her take on a past episode of the great for Crying Out Loud podcast, BB is now quizzing Sonny about Disneyland trips and keeping things “fresh and sexy”, does he take his kid once per year or only every couple years.


Sonny has a funny “come on daddy with your little Jaguar” line and Adam asks Sonny about his 3 basketball games scheduled for later in the day, Adam asks Sonny if he’s feeling good and if he would willing go back to Dan’s show, BB brings up Sonny’s confidence with the 2016-2017 Warriors team.

Sonny sneaks in a great “Just a Waste of My Time” and they let him take a bow and move onto a live read.
